TTS, how is the transformation going?

There are high-hopes and expectations that between MM and some Thought Leaders (-gag-) TTS's transformation will spark meaningful change that will trickle down or radiate out and heal what ails Target's mojo as it also solves expense problems on the balance sheet. It's early but can you share some ... read more

U.S. Bank is doing Layoffs too

US Bank is laying off people weekly as well! Friday is always the day for US Bank. They are trying to do small numbers each week to stay out of the media. Not much of a package either. 90 days is all.

Everyone pay attention......

There is going to be an ongoing battle between Leadership (and I don't mean DMG and below - they are meaningless) and the workers. The C-suite is going to push you till you fail or leave. If you feel any obligation to give more than minimum to get a paycheck, you are a fool. They are not willing to ... read more

Congrats Bullseye, after the transformation efforts, the care and maintenance of this ugly dog is now one of the most expensive ones in the industry.

Best to all affected today!

The best post today had to be: "For the love of GOD give it a rest with the cheap humor. Over 200 real people were laid off today. They merit support and understanding. Others are still quite anxious, skip the I'm so cute I'm so funny BS for at least a day."

Sorry to have seen some good people go.....

Can't really explain the who or whys. But for those left we can at least now focus on what our new roles and teams are going to be and move on. This foing nothing at work has been miserable.

Target's brand (as an employer) is badly damaged

Whether these thousands of layoffs are the right thing or not, what's certain is that Target is no longer an employer of choice. Only been here for 2 years, but family, friends and old coworkers used to ooo/ahh when I talked about Target. Now they smirk and talk about layoffs, security breaches and ... read more

Who was really let go?

I'm a former TTSer and just wondering...I read the Strib article that stated mostly TTS Business Analyst and TTS Project Managers were let go. However, many people I've heard from who were let go are Middle Management (KMG). Any insights from anyone?

Hardworking people gone , junk still remains intact

It looks like all the hardworking people in TI are let go and junk , non performer still remains intact, ie FFF champion,initiative champions , process champions and so on. . Guys who were let go should not feel disappointed as they have have come out of rot now and will find a better environment,

Many useless managers are still in Target, and are retained. Lay off decision are based on their manager assessment, how stupid it is.

All the names that I heard were hard workers and work dedicated people... All managers who self centred, never care for their team or Target are retained.. I got to know that decisions are based on survey and inpit fron managers. Its so stupid. Even for layoff MM and BC believing in management. ... read more

It's time we transform what happens at the top of this company," said Cornell. He went on to say that the ... read more

Mixed feelings on being let go

I was let go today and getting mixed feelings on the impact. Quickly realized some friends suddenly stopped speaking and while some suddenly started coming for help. It was pretty clear to me that this was NOT based on any business reasons while purely hand picking by some KMG / Directors. Ours was ... read more

Layoffs can backfire

So the main problem that the Target leadership team is facing right now is, with so many layoffs done already and upcoming, who are they going to blame for the problems tomorrow?
