September TL Cuts

I heard they will be cutting them in September. Too many "managers" anyway. They don't need that many to manage a store smh. Also like y'all said they don't do anything anyway and get paid the big bucks while we work our a$$ off cashiering and working the sales floor!! On top if that they get bonuses off of the work the people below them do on a daily such as getting redcards, selling replacement plans etc... Smh makes me sick!

Be wary managers with no direct reports

Heard a rumor going around at HQ that those with manager titles but no actual direct reports should have reason to be concerned in the future when additional layoffs are announced. Anybody else hear or confirm the same thing?

March layoffs?

Just wondering if there are any updates. Awhile back someone said there were going to be huge layoffs (bloodbath they called it) at the end of March. Well it's the end of March and nothing happened and pay increases at HQ are to take effect here soon. So just curious if there is any news?

Data Breach

It was previously posted here that TM's who have Target on their resume won't have any trouble finding work. I can attest that this is such a false statement. We can all blame the data breach for other organizations concern and cautious about hiring someone from Target TTS. Even if you didn't work in the areas where the data breach Target didn't do us any favors.

Sorry! Yeah only because they got caught.

I was let go in January from this horrible company through the job cuts. You know "Outsourcing" to make the company even less secure. The only thing Target is sorry about in this matter, is THAT THEY GOT CAUGHT. The company is a PR nightmare. IT management is nothing but a bunch of non technical puppets. Red is the right colors for this dictator company, you now Russia, China & Hitler's Germany was all red.

Shipment of jobs to India

I don't give a f_ _k about anybody in India who is employed by Target. This is a U.S. company. They never should have off-shored jobs. And now that process is coming back to bite Target in the ass. Once Target has a store in Bangalore, and the people in Bangalore buy merchandise I will care. Right now, Bangalore is stealing U.S. jobs.

Who is running Target?

My God...when will somebody at Target finally step up to the plate and say "THIS IS MY FAULT". The ill-advised venture into Canada. The poor supply chain that can't support Canadian stores. The data breach, and the entire fiasco around ignoring the warning signals that were coming from their IT Dept in Bangalore. Putting IT in Bangalore in the first place. Giving their guests the employee discount for a week, and hope they come back again and forget that their personal information was STOLEN at a Target store. My God...when will somebody at Target drop on a sword for all of these disasters?

Dress for your Day

I sat in on a meeting regarding this 3 months ago. Layoffs were discussed, and were finally implemented in January. But all ISM and IT managers agreed that we could keep top talent from bailing ship by just promising Blue Jeans everyday of the week. Unbelievable that the corp staff can't see through the smoke screen. Just got out of another meeting....which Target never does on Fridays....end of March is going to be a bloodbath for corporate employees. Wear the jeans....drink the potion. Same mantra

The main issue is culture

Targets main issue is culture. They are extremely over inclusive. Too meeting heavy. They should cancel all statuses as they are a complete waste of time. And development is overdone. Its these things that create an environment led by gossip and so meeting heavy that no work gets done. If target wants to succeed they need to stop this culture.

Go to thread Need to get the TCoE as well (CoE), Thursday 03/06/14 16:56:10 UTC

All fake initiatives and no real testing work.

TCoE has been pondering on the security testing initiative, I dont know for how long, involving all the "so called" experienced folks. But going no where. A testing department exists to catch issues before it goes into the field. At least some core/critical issues should be caught before, which can effect Target bottom line. If we had a good testing group, I feel the breach would not have occured or atleast to this extent. The worst testing group ever, mainly because of some of the ignorant leaders and managers there.

Need to get the rest

They need to get Jeff Mader - Terri Lindall - Karl Riebs as well. They are managers with no sense of Technical knowledge either. I am in the process of creating an union website for Target employees. This will be a site that everyone will be able to go to and unionize multiple sites instead of one here and there. I have a lot of friends that need to be taken care of better, before they are outsourced out as well.

CIO Fired

Best thing that can happen to Target. When the leader of a technology organization does not understand technology, then obviously people, who surround her, will not give a damn to technology. Then the 'No Techie' culture drift down to whole organization which in the end only delivers shit technology solution. She is singly handedly responsible where TTS stands today and Target leadership took too long to understand that.

Things will improve only when the KMG's accountability will be fixed in India and non performing KMGs marched out of Target India.

This layer is just messing around with zero accountability. The KMG layer in India have no accountability, no authority, If such role is really is needed ?

In regards, and in reply to my previous post: : Here in Texas, over the last two years...

To answer your question/concerns, most of our team members were full time (and many had full time insurance), but over the last two years, and especially the last 6 months, hours were slowly whittled away so that these people became part-timers with part-time insurance. And then those part-timers began to receive even less hours and lost their part-time insurance. While we do have a very few (maybe a handful) that are now full time, these are mostly team leads, and I see them facing the "hour axe" soon, if not already. It also infuriates us how Human Resources puts all these signs/stickers up about the upcoming enrollment for insurance, etc,-- signs/stickers that are worded so happily and full of joyous enthusiasm. Since most of the store members no longer qualify, it's insulting. And make sure you have the signs in Spanish too, even though if you work at Target you are suppose to know English. This pandering infuriates us as well, but it seems to be getting worse, especially in the last year. There are so many increasing examples of this around the store, and many customers and employees do not like it at all.

Here in Texas, over the last two years, but especially in the last 6 months, our hours in the store have gone from 8 hours/day to about 4 hours/day. Because of Obamacare, Target gives most who use to be full time an average of 20-25 hours/week. After 4 hours of work, our ETLs tell us to go home and "enjoy the sunshine" or "go spend time with your families" or some other cooked up Target catchphrase. Sadly, and what really makes us angry, is that the only people working full time in the store other than ETLs is the illegal immigrant cleaning crew (and yes, Target keeps it on the hush-hush, but we know they are illegal), though they are not actually Target employees, but work for an outside company. They can't or refuse to speak English and love to talk about us/curse at us in Spanish...
