What happens when they Fire you or lay you off at Target?

Sounds like Target is doing a bunch of poor performance actions in order to trim the Target herd without all the bad press. For those that are fired or laid off does anyone on here know what happens after that? Do they offer severance or do the now unemployed team member just have to file for government unemployment?

So, what does this say about TTS?

Target Buys Pittsburgh Shopping Technology Firm Target Corp. has acquired a Pittsburgh company that says its software platform brings "an Amazon-like shopping experience" to in-store customers. Powered Analytics co-founder Collin Otis and a spokesman for Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Target confirmed the deal Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed. Otis says the firm, founded in 2012, will remain headquartered in Pittsburgh. Powered Analytics' Fabric product uses mobile technology, location data and machine learning to connect a retailer's app to the in-store shopping experience. The system uses the store's layout and product locations to deliver customized recommendations and messaging to customers.

More hires

October and January

Looks like Target is doing the same predicable patterns. A corporate layoff in October with a bigger corporate layoff in January. I think I will get my résumé ready for the next round.

Why is Target's website so slow?

I am a customer, not sure who can help me here but please let me know: Why is Target's website so slow? I called customer support, they are playing stupid, it's like do you have a fast connection (I have a fast internet cable connection), do you have a fast computer (I have a brand new PC). Anyone here knows why?

Real Estate, Architecture, Construction (PMs), Property Development Layoffs (October / November 2014)

Last time it was technology services, human resources, finance and marketing. Now we have Real Estate, Architecture, Construction (PMs), Property Development. Is anyone safe? Also, what about November and December 2014. I am sure we'll have a dismal 2015. I think around 100 folks are affected with the latest cut, our January 2014 cuts affected 500 people.

Is this really a serious thing?

Tno has been more if a failure than the intro to canada. Missed loads, plenty if pissed off stores, LOST logistics experience due to the layoffs of perfectly fine capable people who were just doing thier jobs and did i mention pissed off stores. There is NO way we can service the stores like the dc's did. How can we judge store deliveries from thousands of miles away? Who was the idiot behind this stupid decision? This will not get better. If you are at a store just bear with us. We didnt create this problem, we just applied.

All TTS senior directors promoted as VP

What a fun day ! All the senior directors promoted as VPs. Remember these are the same folks who messed up things during so called transformation earlier by building their empires. One of this guy even wasted millions of $ trying to implement POS package. Instead of kicking him out he is promoted. What are they rewarded for ? Several other folks promotions are held up saying there is promotion freeze across the org.

Target Corporation Jobs

Hello all, I have a quick inquiry. I am not a Target employee but I wanted to ask you what is the best way of applying for Target Corporation jobs. I know that there is website where you can apply for jobs but I have a feeling that those resumes just site somewhere and that nobody is looking at them. So, what's the best way to apply for Target Corporation jobs? Should I find a headhunter who has contacts at Target? How about emailing Target Corp folks directly. I graduated in 2012 with a degree in Business (UC Riverside) and I have 1 year of work experience as an assistant to a Buyer at a Fortune 500 company. Please help.

Get rid of meetings

Target has two huge flaws.... Meetings and leadership expectations. Meetings especially statuses are a waste of time, company could improve work efficiency just by stopping statuses alone. Leadership expectations are ridiculous and a waste of time. You can't pigeonhole anyone into a category. People are all different and should be treated as people. I do like the BTS survey though as I feel target actually acts on it to make improvements.

#askBrian

Will you stand up for the people who have been here 15+ years and built this company or will you take sides with new graduates who are making pointless changes in hq and let this company turn into kmart? Look at what they did to the computer techs. Look at what they did to the logistics techs. Look at what they are doing to the full time store and dc employees. Remember who built this company and that your employees and thier familys are customers too. The decision to do away with computer techs and the logistics techs will cost the company money. Whoever says it will save money obviously supported the canandian store project. Watch who you surround yourself with Brian. Get out in the company and talk to the people who make things happen. Hq is a horrible virus destroying this once great company. We can be great again as long as you know we are all in this together and its not "us against them"

Typical Target mistake

Edina, Minnesota store is selling football jerseys with obvious misspelling of new Vikings rookie quarterback. His actual last name is BRIDGEWATER. What the Edina store is selling is jerseys spelled BRIDEWATER....there is no "G" in the last name. Same old Target. No one cares anymore. That's why Canada started out by not selling Plus sizes for women, Canada can't keep bread and milk on the shelves because of poor supply chain issues. Target is an absolute joke now. Even with the new leadership.

Lack of appreciation company

I have been working for Target got over 18years and it is very sad the way they let Gls put down ppl. Gls think that they Know it all. Old teammates make this company not new Gls. It will be good if all the team will call in sick for a day and see if Target run with only Gls . They don't even have a clue on ppl skills all they think is about numbers .And now logistic is leaving on sept and clericals will be taking over some of the job without a increase of payment and more work . I'm planing of getting out since I can't stand all the injustice . And now I heard more changes are coming????

Open Letter to BOB

1. There are lot of leadership roles like Intake Manager,Delivery Lead .Some are closer to technology ie understand /know ground level tech activities while major % are 10000 Ft above.Please send those with no ground reality people home so that people who are genuinely Technical execution experts get recognition for their work. They make real differences to the business. 2. Reduce the stress on leaders (PG13-17) to be "strategic" or atleast define this in clear terms. Many DMG/KMG kept quiet while this transformation was not helping anyone except IT Vendors.This looked fishy to many managers but did not have the option to prevent as who made opposed this were called non collaborative. 3.Have a strong Vendor management that has all the data of projects,what goof ups thay made. Prevent some Managers supporting them extensively beyond business needs.

Clarity

As anyone knows in TTS. You have to put your time in Clarity everyday. Back in 2011 they decided to take us back to hourly from salary. They went back 4 years (When we went to salary) and paid us all OT entered in this system. So if you are working more than 40 hours, make sure you are putting this in Clarity. It could payoff if there is ever a lawsuit in reference to being salary. I hear the DTO Leads are running a lot of hours in clarity now, and are truly being worked to death. I hear some folks got some huge checks back in 2011. How is the Union drives going? Any other web sites?

We are screwed!

Only believe what you get in writing. Repack is next from what I hear. If Target management is opening their mouths, they are lying. Union is the only thing that will help you. You need that voice. I predict that distribution employment will be cut in half by temps in the next 5 years. Vote Union! Call your local government and ask them to revoke tax benefits give to Distribution Centers. This company shouldn't be able to screw workers and their local communities at the same time.

Can you say Office Space?

Apparently, a third party consulting firm has been hired by Target to look at the various roles and departments at HQ. I don't know how many other groups know about this. But apparently we (departments) are all coming up with this three-year strategic vision of what we want our departments to look like. At least in my group they are touting this as a three-year vision plan without mentioning it's part of the overall work being done by the consulting firm. In the end, I'm guessing the firm is looking at and will recommend where the upcoming round of cuts should come from. Anyone else hear anything about this?
