What did you learn while working at Target?

It'd be great if we can have this thread with some dignity and stay polite.

Pay attention kids!

The people on the board are all edu-macated going to high dollar schools and yet the are running this company into the ground. Think about that before considering them as role models. And to think some of them are raising kids... Their future is shot too unless they grow brains if their own. Just remember college doesn't make you a leader. That comes natural. Targets downfall is NOT knowing that. This company was Great under Ulrich's order. Been suckin since.

"We don't have details today, but we expect there will be a reduction in headcount in the U.S. related to the Canada news."

Hundreds of employees at the retailer's Minneapolis headquarters work on the retailer's Canadian operations. Some are fully dedicated to Target Canada, while others are only partially dedicated to the expansion. "We are going evaluate each of those positions on a case-by-case basis," Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said. "We don't have details today, but we expect there will be a reduction in headcount in the U.S. related to the Canada news." Snyder said it's too early to say how many jobs will be cut or when those reductions will occur. "There has been no reduction in headcount at this point," she said.

Project Managers and Business Analysts Layoffs 2015

I heard this week that once again they are sending PM and BA roles to Target India. Clearly the PM function is something that Target doesn't care about or doesn't understand. If they need only a Project Coordinator who checks the boxes, yes, it makes sense to send some back-office person in India and not pay $360 an hour to an Accenture professional on site who demands first class on his way from NYC and a four star hotel stay. On the other hand, a PM has to be present to interact with the team and be a leader who tackles the tough issues on site. Anyways, the cost savings are obviously attractive, but it is a major pain a few months down the road.

Enginner

The word on the grapevine is 30 to 50% of property development is out. New small store don't require much more then design build to complete. Most hurt will come to engineers as their actual effort in construction is minimal and much harder to justify.

TGT HQ

Hopefully Brian is reading these since the company is blocking the website from HQ. The new mantra is getting back to the way Target used to be, guest first. Unfortunately there are not enough talented leaders left that know what that means, or care for that matter. The morale at HQ is horrible. We got there by moving under performing team members to support areas, and promoting within multiple areas based on perceived potential versus performance. We ignore the annual survey unless it is used to fire a leader, or it supports the work harder for less pay message that is also being delivered. I truly hope it can be turned around because there are many team members who have dedicated their careers to Target, but unless we review how we got to our current state, we are doomed to repeat or build on our existing mistakes.

Target employees new opportunity

There are 20 spots available this month available for target employees who will be affected by the upcoming closures. I'll be presenting a business opportunity. No resumes required, however, please only come if you are a driven individual, not looking to make fast money but recognize the importance of working hard and working smart. I will show you how working for someone else is not the more secure way to live but rather I teach and train people to be their own boss, while becoming the best versions of themselves. I have two upcoming information nights. Please message me for details on linked in, name is Lila Beijer.

HQ board goal

They left Canada and admitted fail, but don't think they did it due to honesty. The greedy board expects the stock to rise and when it hits $86 or higher they will suggest a stock split. This makes them all richer and then they sell. They walk away one by one and target is no more. I heard my dad talking. Money is the only object. Target culture is no more. Fast fun and friendly is a thing of the past. Gl you guys. Target is not a career now, its a part time Jo

Whiteboard Announcement

So I just got fired by Target. No talk or anything like that, just a letter posted onto a whiteboard with my name on it saying I've been "terminated". My problem is why was I let go? I was trained in 4 departments (Electronics, Market, Cashier, and Hardlines). I'm one of two people in the whole store who can do all those departments. They decided to keep all the girls who came in a month after me. I talked with my other co-workers and they also don't get it. They said out of all the seasonal workers I should have stayed for sure. It weird that only the girls were allowed to keep their jobs. I think what ticks me off the most is that I wasn't even told directly but rather by letter. I mean it's HR's job to this kind of thing. Do they not have the balls to tell someone that they are fired? (Side note: I would have not been as angry if I were told directly)

come clean

Hey, just wondering, those of you who work opening backroom shifts, how often do you come clean? I would like to know if come clean is target wide terminology, so what I mean by come clean is finish with all of the back-stock before day side backroom TMs come in. It seems that my store rarely does it. Too be fair, my backroom is understaffed, but still, we always have about 2 flats and 2 tubs left when we leave. Its annoying, because I feel like I am doing decently well, like finishing 6-7 full flats per hour, while others work on tubs and flats. We don't even get huge trucks, usually like 2100 is the biggest. Just wondering, thanks.
