I am really interested in store management, I want to go to Target and interview the general manager.

Is that a good idea?

If you want real information, then speak to either a Sales Mgr or a Merchandising Mgr.

Call in advance and be willing to come in when the manager has time.

Have a list of questions, be brief, and write down the answers. Also, don't limit to one business. Every business has its own unique corporate culture.

I guess you should know your real purpose before doing such. It's not easy and a bit uncomfortable to interview someone who is not totally aware of your aim. The best thing to do is gather some good information about some stores and have a list of questions to ask. Make sure you deliver your spiels in a way that is not offensive. Good luck.

Surely you'd better go to see the manager and things go smoothly by talking face by face...
