June 2nd Layoff

Hearing very strong rumors for June 2nd. Private meetings on all VPs. Looks like we are only worried about wall street and no growth or stability for the company we built.

Merchandising Cuts

Merchandising has been asked to cut 30 % in June. The Leaders have been asked to identify critical business needs and match skills to those needs. Team members skills matching those needs will fill those positions, all others will be terminated.

City Center Conference Room Taken Offline

I just received notice that one of the big (20 seat) conference rooms in City Center is being taken offline from June 5th to July 12th. I know it doesn't line up with the dates that are being rumored on this site, but just thought I'd throw this out there, for what its worth.

Contractors getting hit also

I worked at the CSC as a contractor, hoping for a permanent position. A number of us are being let go as well. My group and the group before us are getting slimmed down..

My director, who was spot-on through our last round of lay-off's, has advised me pretty much what is being reported here. He said first week of June and that it will be about as painful as last time. What a leader Brian is. Cut, cut, cut. He has done NOTHING that I can see to invigorate, energize ... read more

Distribution Center lay offs?

Hi, I'm curious if anyone has heard of any layoffs coming for the DC's? Barely any of the lay offs so far have hit the DC's which tells me maybe we're next. There seems to be a weird vibe around there lately.

Inpats are so screwed

So, while Target is trying to cut down on Inpat expense, even if there's an urgent requirement on a team in Minneapolis with funding provided, the Target India leadership is refusing all assignments/extensions. This is such a sneaky strategy to get people to resign. because we all know that when ... read more

Severance payout - one check or bi-weekly

If you are laid off and get severance, does anyone know how it is paid out and do you have a choice in the matter? Is it one lump sum or bi-weekly?

Don't expect magic. I will probably slice and dice the organization in a way the people who's "got what it takes" will feel energized and engaged for the long run, and the people who think the workplace is a country club will leave on their own. Also, whoever thinks that you can just sit tight and ... read more

Anyone have visibility/info on the promotion delays/decisions?

Most of us (TTS) had their promotions delayed when they didn't happen at annual review time. Now all of a sudden some (but not all) people are getting promoted. Mostly engineers are getting promos when other job families are getting the shaft. Is this a sign of PM/PA/BA layoffs to come?

Next round of layoffs are around the corner. This time KMG & DMG inputs are also taken. My director told me that this will be more brutal than last layoff. Keep eyes and ears open friends

TCI sold off. What's next, Printing Services?

Serious question. If Target outsources the food service, computer installs/maintenance, and now TCI is gone . . . . why would they keep hundreds of people on the payroll in the printing & shipping business?

Does anyone know the rules around giving 2 weeks notice? Is it required, or just a courtesy?

TTS Hijack: Target The Layoff

It's pretty clear that in general the TTS > TGT community is a little disgruntled and clearly paranoid as hell with all the comments here.

Postings for positions that were eliminated in previous rounds of layoffs

What a joke, about a year 1/2 ago they axed an entire TTS team right before peak season. The theory was why do we need a team to support a SaS app. Today I see they are recruiting to build that exact team back up. GREAT LEADERSHIP! What a joke. The people on that team were great and all landed jobs ... read more
