Lilly Pulitzer launch FAIL!!!

Another designer partnership, another epic fail launch due to the site being unavailable. Here I thought that spending $1B on 'omnichannel' would work wonders. I guess the architecture can't run when people running it are laid off

Where are all the classes at St. Thomas? #Unprepared #BrokenPromises

Has anyone else found it suspicious that we were promised classes and discounts yet all classes are fun with no addition of new classes. Are they hoping they will wait long enough to add new classes and they we will find new jobs and they will save some cash? Just a thought. Would love the news ... read more

Business Dealings with Former Team Members Policy

This policy states TMs are not able to work for Target vendors directly on Target business for two years, however the interpretation of this policy has been extremely inconsistent.

Mpls Admin Reduction (Deep Throat)

No plans to reduce Admin staff before Christmas season. Target is banking on this team, right here and right now, to boost holiday shopping by at least 7%. If that goal isn't reached, than everyone better bail.

2 years is a very long time to hold ones breath

Brian told us he'll need two years to clean the house up. Even if many of us don't get the ax next time doesn't mean we don't get caught up in the subsequent waves. It's a pins and needles effect and it feels like we are holding our breath for the next time. How can you live like that? Do you buy ... read more

5 years from now the company will not be the same. 85% of the people will have changed.

This feels oddly reminiscent of another large Minnesota electronics retailer 4 years ago. You are not on a fun journey and I imagine if you are there in 5 years from now the company will not be the same. 85% of the people will have changed, the culture will be bankrupt, the focus will be on cost ... read more

Have you left a glassdoor.com review yet?

If not, take 10 minutes to give your honest feedback! I did and it felt so good to get my thoughts out there. I won't bias anyone here with my thoughts, just leave your honest feedback for the world to see instead of posting stupid rumors here!

Deep Throat here

There will be no layoffs until June. Brian is a very superstitious person. He loves astrology. Next round of layoffs will be June 9th, 2015. A Tuesday. 6-9-15. 6+9=15. His target date and Brian's favorite number.

From someone who was laid off in PD&D in March - Free advice to the leaders about how not to treat people the day they are laid off

Do not gather all the remaining team members to line the hallways and clap and cheer as the laid off leave their final "you were laid off - here's your walking papers- you must leave the building immediately" meeting. It may make leadership feel better to plan such an event, but it was humiliating ... read more

Not sure where the April 7th rumor came from but it's pretty quiet this morning.

It seems more likely rhat it won't happen when people speculate it will. I'm also pretty sure the people making those decisions read this forum and are not going to elude to timing.

Getting laid off from Target is like being released from a cult.

I was laid off in March and the past four weeks have been the best of my career so far. I stressed before it happened, but not after--the unknown is harder to deal with than the known. I now have time and a pile of cash while I look for my next job. So, my advice is: Don't worry--It is highly ... read more

Things are... happening?

Either soon, in the not so distant future, or the distant future. People will be laid off or not laid off or they will resign or be terminated. Or potentially promoted. This is pretty much what every post has turned into here....

Psychotherapist in Minneapolis

While we are talking about referrals, I need a Psychotherapist in Minneapolis. If I continue to hear about layoffs I will go nuts. Seriously, this whole thing destabilized me quite a bt. But hey, there is nothing we can do about it so I am about to figure out how to block all of this stress

Something is definitely happening soon

Overheard a long conversation between what I assume are two HR managers discussing logistics of the layoffs. Including resignation letters, offering severance packages and updating org charts.
