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.

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.

We overheard our Managers talking BOB is going to cut down on Offshore contractors and add to Minneapolis Technical people. They seemed to be worried on reduction in "Leadership" roles.

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?

Unions don't matter anymore

The problem is there is no more money for front-line employees (sales, distribution, store staff, etc.), union or not. Doesn't matter what your Union does for you. The normal greedy execs would rather close the company and take their money and run rather than keep the business going.

Website is a joke, or is it?

I have stopped by this website over the past few months, and I don't know if this website is a scam or a real site. I sense a lot of anger, and that means that people care. But the big thing is....management doesn't care about you or me. I have 10 years of experience in ISM, and I was just told my job is eliminated. Unions aren't the answer...if everyone is so ticked off at the company, pick a day where everyone can just call in sick. You obviously don't want to announce that day here....there are channels for everyone to communicate with each other. Use cell phones, e-mail, have a national sick day to make your point.

My experience

I have worked at 556 in Tifton for over 20 years. We had a union vote back in 97. We heard a lot of promises from Target and nothing never panned out. Just a lot of broken promises. We come up around 40% at that time. That did get us 80 cent raises for 2 years in a row. Haven't saw a raise that good since. That was impressive raises and the union didn't even make it in the door. Imagine if it made it in, things would be better. We could probably get rid of the GL position all together. Shop Stewards could communicate directly to the SGL. I have saw a time when they did away with SGLs, but soon implemented that back in the mix. None of them got the shaft of the recent employees. Target cant afford to shut down a DC right now, they haven't built one in quite some time. I wish I would have voted for the union back in 97, but I believed all the lies. VOTE UNION MY FRIENDS!

Can't keep out the union forever

GREAT turn out for our meeting! 3808 is on its way! If you monitor this site and you are from our DC and haven't been contacted don't worry you will be. We've been asked to only include trustworthy people right now. Don't take offense! We only need a third of our team to sign cards for a vote and as long as target keeps bringinging in temps and lower target team numbers the easier it will be to regain RESPECT from this company! If ANYONE knows ANYONE from 556 and 580 we reaaly need you to contact them. If we can get them onboard target CANNOT shut us all down. If we can get the FDC in too it would be a plus. News the time.

I guess I didn't realize this sight was only for those teammates pushing for a union. By attempting to bully me or anyone else off this site or any other for that matter is an attempt at censorship. Throwing out obscenities in capital letters will not shake me or cause me to bow my head and obey. Im sorry for anyone that has lost their job, inside and outside of Target. It's not easy to find a decent paying job out there for many of us. To be so ungrateful to the company providing teammates with a chance at making a living (remember we all make well over the minimum even at starting pay) just shows a persons stripes. I invite anyone that has an issue over my beliefs to feel free to approach me at work, on break, over a cop of coffee and discuss our differences as adults. To all and any eexecutives reading from this site I applaud your interest in hearing the concerns of teammates to afraid to come to you with their issues. Many fear that once they are known to be a "nuisance" that they will be fast tracked to the chopping block. I have myself voiced many concerns to all levels and have found (since I was a teenager) that when you articulate your problem in a cool manner it will be heard and thought about. To storm the gates huffing and puffing will be often times overlooked by the rantings of someone having a bad day. There's my opinion once again and I will not be afraid or bullied in keeping my views to myself.

To anti-union team members

Some anti-union people have been posting on here stating that union would make it harder to resolves issues with Target. What they forget is that as a non-represented employees we have no weight behind our plea/demands. Here's what happen when I tried to stay on with the company: When they started giving me corrective action for very silly reasons(with in a span of month i was written up twice) I knew they wanted to push me out but I didn't want to quit so I went to HR and complained, HR folded their hands and said there is nothing they can do. I offered to take a pay cut, I was with Target for 8 yrs, I know I make more than what they pay the new team members, they said that's not possible either. I offered to step down from my position to become a part timer, they said since i'm in the final corrective action that's not possible either. More or less unless I quit they will fire me. I asked them that being that this was a force layoff would I be able to get Unemployement, they said that if the unemployment office call them they will just tell the Unemployment office that i was terminated for cause...basically not allowing me to collect unemployment. Eight years of dedication to this company and this is how they treat me. Not even letting me collect unemployment. You guys need unionize to keep sneaky corrective action from happening. Else they will eventually replace/out source all of you.

Hey, Corporate Snoops!!!

If you're here, for a change you actually care what we little people have to say, so just a suggestion: Instead of hurting the little people who don't have the college educations that you believe are so necessary (the little people who have developed the skills and knowledge to do the actual WORK involved to make this company successful), why don't you stop wasting MILLIONS OF DOLLARS on your GL's who are just college-educated idiots? Promote the little people from within, who know how to work, and learn their jobs well. We little people would be happy to make just a couple dollars more an hour for a promotion we have earned with good old-fashioned work ethics, instead of having to worry about being laid off, or targeted by lazy rotten GL's for undeserved corrective actions. But, we all know you'll just keep paying the big bucks for the ladder-climbing, college-educated, disloyal GL's...

No Way

Unions are the modern form of legal communism, restricting what members can earn and by telling them what political stance they can have. They dictate to their members what they will earn. They dictate to their members what their political views must be. Freedom of choice is no longer valid when you are in a union. The unions only care about advancing their power and control over their members, business and politicians.

Leadership doesn't care about anyone but themselves

I hear the general manager from the tifton dc was in Italy during the announcement of TSS and logistics layoffs. If it doesn't matter to her that her teams lives and futures have been wrongfully destroyed then why does anyone else think their jobs are safe? What makes you think you matter to target? I'm sure her team will over look her personal self absorbed greed and follow her anywhere. Rumor has it from a contact at HQ she was sent to close tifton. Guess we will see.
