Anybody thinks this Shipt deal will be a catalyst for more layoffs? The deal focuses on online ordering, which means that fewer people will be coming to the store thanks to this. Which, of course, will give those at the top some ideas. After all, you... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Target Corp.
If Target leadership really wanted to prove it cared about workers and society they would reinstate health insurance for part time workers and retirees, along with pension benefits. Instead they hide behind meaningless bathroom policies and diversity... read more
BC and MM should ditch the retail label and embrace itself as a tech company, not a retailer. Focus only on retail tech innovations to sell merchandise and cloud. Boom.....instant love.
most of the leaders/managers in Target are enjoying life.earning good/doing personal work at office/designing homes/clearing loans/working for other companies while in c2 buiding. what a company!!!! Best company for ever!!!! specially for... read more
The new MN license system... feels a lot like the quality of work TTS puts out. 10+ years of development, an end product that has endless glitches, and 100+ workarounds. All too familar. And at the end of the day it was better outsource to real... read more
BC, MM and team get another chance to showcase failed leadership beginning today at 6pm. As a former hIgh performer before layoffs, I'm so excited to watch them fail, again and again....
I can remember the TTS standup like it was yesterday. Our CIO being asked about WMT acquisition of jet.com and him mocking the purchase price of $3B. Since that day WMT market cap up about $85B (40%) and TGT market cap down about $11B (-28%). He's a... read more
Where is this loser now? https://www.thelayoff.com/t/ONG8TKc
Keep in mind that we did open 30+ stores, so closing a few is not the end of the world. Some will predict doom and gloom but things are not that dire. Baltimore West Benton Harbor, Michigan Eastland in Harper Woods, Michigan Fergus Falls, Minn... read more
Target isn't going to do an official layoff. They are managing out many employees now to be able to hire college grads. Unless you're on the list, and you'd probably know by now, don't worry about it.
I keep getting told by my boss I'm not nice, and we have a culture of nice. If I ask if I've hurt anyone or done something wrong, I get told it is not about doing, it's about the personality, that I'm aggressive and go getter and it offends others... read more
Target has two groups of people one is hardworking & highly technical and another is a highly political managers & directors. The political group survive because of their highly advanced manipulative techniques. They are experts in managing... read more
There is some anxiety about possible job cuts in Minneapolis.
Yet more passive wait and see business strategy.... what is so hard about taking an industry lead? Bob Ulrich must be livid at how bad this company is being run. The current CEO should just admit the C level has no original ideas.
Brilliant. Another example of digital debacle. Sh--ty digital team cannot put out a visual search tool when AR was getting experimented a few years ago. Now you have ANOTHER MIDDLEMAN between you and the consumer. I thought this digital leadership is... read more
Former Target worker here - this isn't really big news. I started at $7.50 an hour back in 2011 and when I left last year the company minimum was $10. They effectively raised the company minimum every year. However, every time I got a company raise... read more
Yeah, it's seasonal, but from the demand planning side this looks very promising... http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-target-holiday-jobs-illinois-20170913-story.html
Are they taking away FMLA in California or any other states at Target?Will the houdini shows finally end.Maybe 13 reasons they want to get rid of it who knows.
Get ready for more layoffs at HQ! Announced lowering of everyday prices can't be good news for HQ employees...that cost has to be born somewhere, stores won't get cut.
They selected BC and have continued to support every poor business decision that clown has made. After almost 3 years of "transformation" we should be in a place to compete with amazon. Where are we instead? Putting a fresh coat of paint on stores... read more
Make Target easier to navigate for employees and guests. All of these obstacles in the center aisles make the shopping process more like an annoying traffic jam. I will shop online if I have to in order to get my purchases quickly. Who enjoys... read more
When I was in grad school The then Vice Chairman of Target gave a speech about "Bricks and Clicks." He explained how Amazon was this small little tech company was going to take Target's Catalog business online to create an "Online Catalog" of certain... read more
Are you kidding me. TGT still has ties with Amazon Web Services that need to be cut. How many people at Target have been laid off or minimized by Amazon's dominance and we still have a relationship that needs to be severed. God help us, we have... read more
Is yale equipment plaguing other DC's the way it is mine? Me and most of us at my DC hate them, yet despite our protests they continue to come in replacing crown. Our DC has heard rumors of others getting rid of yale and obtaining crown again... read more
Seems that the Corrective Action rules are different for many. Has anyone survived being put on "Corrective Action" (pack your bag notice)? What is the process? Survived? I hear there is a a new round happening in TTS. Worried that I could be next, I... read more
If I am laid off, hypothetically speaking, how will the vacation payout be handled by Target. Are there rules outlining what happens here? Also, are there differences between states (e.g. California may be different if compared to Minnesota or... read more
Sorry to all you losers let go by Target in last couple years but apparently you were the problem after all. Just look at today's earnings results. Only us brilliant people are left and it shows.
I'm not sure if you've heard that a company in Wisconsin just had their employees get microchips implanted in themselves. This has me very furious. I'm not sure if Target would ever go this route but it wouldn't surprise me at all especially with all... read more
Yes it is true, there is a list! Managers are being coached weekly to complete the process. Many of the "managed out" employees have been "TARGETED" due to age and years of service; however it is being balanced out with a few token younger team... read more
TTS's blatant push for gender diversification will make my case for reverse discrimination a no brainer. I see myself on a beach paid for by MM himself. Thank you so much Target!
Here's a nice to know loophole: If you are 55+ and have been with TGT for 10 or more years, you can retire! That means you get paid for all your accrued vacation and still get the 10% bonus. Plus they will give you a $50 Target gift card and say... read more
I've been with Target for nearly 30 years, what we are seeing now in terms of leadership changes and "managing out" reminds me a lot of how Target used to be in the 90's and early 2000's. Then the push was insane growth and it happened fast and... read more
Any updates here? I hear layoffs are happening - I was let go in 2015. All the best.
Target is currently undergoing a thinning out of staff by "managing out" many team members. People with good annual reviews (or if the "managing out" period started before review time horrible but unrealistic reviews) suddenly under fire. Made up... read more
Target since BC and MM has created nothing but cconstant stress in my life. So much needless failure by Target .
I am a completely outside Target but occasionally enjoy reading the comments made on this website. In fact, I would have to drive about 25 miles to shop at one. Until now I have never commented here and I probably never will again. I truly feel sorry... read more
A couple (at least 2) "very important" six fig Managers from Marketing were given two months to find new jobs in May. Neither one did - I guess sitting around managing 1 person and getting paid for working 5 hours a day doesn't impress everywhere... read more
