Target Doesn't Get It

Flagging Walmart made a great publicity move when it promised to raise wages for 500,000 workers. Lots of free positive press. Anti-union Target doesn't get it, and they will pay as the competition for working class consumers and competent workers heats up.

Target Retooling

I was the person who posted the "October and January" post on 11/1/14. While I missed the January date by a couple of weeks, it still happened even when other posts didn't think so. It was also before the Canada announcements. That being said, Target needs to retool in order to compete in the highly volatile retail space. More changes will result. Jobs will be restructured again due to new leadership redirection. Those that can adapt will get new life into their careers and those that can't will see change from the outside. I see some tm posts that indicate how clueless they really are with their current positions. If you believe you are immune to change, you will be in store for a big surprise.

Target Rumors and Rants

I'm no great fan of Target my position was previously eliminated. That said I don't see any facts to support a sky is falling assessment of US stores. If you have facts to share that support you position I'm sure the share holders would love to hear your thoughtful insights. Ranting here does not hurt the company one bit, truly they don't care about what you or I have to say and our opinions won't help or hurt sales. People come here for information about layoffs because they're concerned about their livelihood and are searching for facts or they have been laid off and want to share their experience

Does anyone respect the board or tgt leadership at all?

i don't. college students who use tgt as a stepping stool to find better jobs make me cringed. Especially when the fire people who have worked for target for YEARS to make a name for themselves to prove they can hold people accountable. Target leadership is an oxymoron. Let me get this list oxymoron list started. Feel free to add as you see fit: Target/Leadership Job/Security Trust/In Leadership Board/confidence add as you see fit. im guessing the toilets at hq would be cleaner if the leadership didn't scrub their faces inside the toilets. jodey face seems to taint the toilets the worst. NO RESPECT

Free Butter Burgers!

New HR benefit is free Culvers Butter Burgers to the LAST 200 employees at Target HQ in Mpls. Of course, if you eat a Butter Burger, you will be automatically cancelled from future health care. But you will be out of a job in 3 months anyway. So eat the Butter Burger and enjoy life. Or live the Target life, and die a very slow death.

Guessing is as bad as lying. Bad information with good intentions is still bad information.

Too many people pouring gasoline on the flames of fear around here. Little or no facts, little or no plausible reasons to believe the posters. I'm not sure if some of the posts have been by Target management in an effort to sabotage the credibility of this site. Regardless of intent posting lies or wild guesses is really a cruel thing to do to thousands of employees hoping to gain knowledge thst impacts their lives and that of their families.

You are wrong with your assessment of 1700 people to be laid off. It is more like 3,000. It is all of the areas you specified, but deeper. 100 stores are closing. AND NO new stores opening this year.

Less than 2 weeks

On March 10th, over 1,700 active team members at Target HQ will be laid off. This has been in the works for many months, has been alluded to very recently, and comes as direction from leadership at the very top. I've posted here in the past, all facts that have eventually found out to be true, and I'll try to answer some of the "common" questions that come up after I've posted in the past. - "What areas are impacted?" In short? Every pyramid of Target, from the VP level down. If you're at any HQ office... Minneapolis, Tempe, San Fran, Bangalore... Your pyramid will impacted. - "What is the benefits package like?" I can't answer that with specifics, but it's fairly generous. - "What if I'm out of office" Communication will be released asking team members to show up to the office on certain times. If anyone is out of office who is impacted, they will receive a phone call. - "How did they pick areas" I can't answer that. Part was performance based, but there are several other factors in play as well. - "Target is relocating to CityX" These are just trolls.

Earnings call foreshadowing? Reduce complexity, simplify operating model, empowerment and better agility? Is this corporate speak for layoffs?

Based on Brian's comments to the investment community, does anyone have any concrete knowledge as to what will be communicated next Tuesday? The rumor mill is working overtime at HQ and many longtime executives are announcing "retirements".

The Target Slime is Getting Thicker

Target laid off my best friends at Target Canada. They worked in ISM. And now Target US is advertising their exact job duties on Horizontal Integration as Print Production Coordinators...Target US won't hire a Target Canada employee directly, but they would love to lay off Target Canada workers and have contractors as security risks fill their offices all the time. Go figure.

I heard HR is working on Job Title changes for all TTS folks in Target India like Engineer , Technical Manager . This is a hidden agenda to fix some people to lay off them. Similar exercise was made for Testing team in past and some people were asked to leave.

Rumors/speculation of layoffs at end of this month (Feb) for TTS, which was mostly untouched outside of the Canada team last week. I'm not HR, so I have no idea if true - lots of false info also flying around. But I heard annual review scores are pretty much now in... Anyone else hearing similar?

Target Scum Rising To The Top

Two associates of mine on the original Target Canada team were laid off last week. Two of the hardest working people I have ever met. They were print buyers in ISM...people who worked harder than hell to get those stores open on time, with all the signage in place. And what do I see today...Target US wanting a contractor for an ISM Print Buyer position. That is exactly wrong is with Target. They lay off experienced Print Buyers from Canada, and then post on Indeed, Judge, Horizontal Integration that they need Print Buyers for the US Team? Every worker in Target should walk out now. And give the new leadership the finger. Cause if you aren't laid off this week, you will be next week. Target go f*** yourself.
