After the September layoff in TTS I was pleasantly surprised at the number and quality of positions that are posted consistently in the Twin Cities. There are good opportunities for anyone who wants to work. Take an honest look at yourself and find a... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Target Corp.
Once again Target's stock price dives around the time the 4th qtr and year end results are nearing finalization internally. Are insiders selling or is this just a reaction to Kohl's announcement today.
After 1/29 contractor reduction, it looks like TTS sourcing is launching a reverse auction process to beat down the price by terming it preferred supplier pool. Isn't that ironical? Why would TTS even want to engage contractors anymore with no big... read more
There is a lot of smoke and mirrors you are not seeing through... what you think is happening at the store level is a facade... the numbers don't tell you everything you think they do... forget the dog and pony show and show up unannounced ... or you... read more
There are so many people in TTS and partner teams sitting around dreaming about getting some real work done. But no, we wait while our leadership dither on another transformation process. I expect I'll have something real to occupy my time by May if... read more
I made a catastrophic mistake when I joined Target seven years ago. I made the mistake of putting SUBSTANCE over STYLE. This is the inherent problem with Target, and why it's so broken - and tragically, why it will cost so many good people their... read more
Tired of waiting to get assigned to some real work and on the other hand don't want to leave good paying job. Does that sumsup most of you?

I'm pretty fed up with the "leadership" of EDABI. What is the end-game here? 100% turnover ? Target India can't possibly be savior
Transformation = Layoffs. Anyone else agree? Me and my team Unable to understand vision & end state.
With the upcoming re-stack at Northern Campus, also means shuffling to prepare for another Mighty March Layoff - there's still a lot of "trash" workers - those who gossip, those who eavesdrop and those who repeat "confidential" information. Just... read more
Is he going to lay out 2016 plans, talk about reorganizations, layoffs. All of the above or nome of t he above and just punt like most cowardly leaders in his position?
So we are going through this supposed transformation and layoffs so that those left will be accountable to "their" new work requirements. So why is it my boss and others in his position are passing their "new" expectations down to me and my peers. I... read more
Website and mobile app folks are being hired here and India. People who keep the lights on in the rest of the business may be feeling a chill wind blowing through their departments.
I do nothing all day and get paid an enormous sum. No one even knows or cares. If only I could figure how to get paid for two jobs at Target. I'm working on it.
Everyone is confused with change in job family etc.... No guidelines for review or score...HR has no clue...and management is pushing for low scores... Hmmmm...take bonus if you get and then get out if you can....has replaced the goal.
http://www.canadianbusiness.com/the-last-days-of-target-canada/ Don't bother waiting for a severance package - if Target goes under there won't be any notice or severance
Is this site bombarded with HR filling it with happy Fast Fun and Friendly reviews or what? https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/minneapolis-target-reviews-SRCH_IL.0,11_IM567_KE12,18.htm
It's not all doom and gloom, just sayin
HQ teams get the email with a link to download an app the will calculated the wasted time we spend in meetings, OK, then within 1 day we get flooded with internal ENGINEERING WEEK EVENTS. Wonder how many engineers are using that APP???
Or maybe it was Wednesday but I'm sure it was two years this week. I still miss my co-workers - they are all in good places, if not as well off as they were at Target. Thinking of them today.
Here's the deal. Many are leaving Target giving them an opportunity to not backfill positions. I would be surprised if large layoffs happened again. However, many middle management positions may be on the chopping block at some point as there are... read more
A little frustrated with the lack of decent content on this board in the last 90 days. I realize that some may start lighting me up after posting this, but it really feels like the B or C team has taken over. For those that are lurking if you have... read more
I'm preparing (documenting) last 4 months of disgusting treatment in preparation for February layoff. If I don't get same or better package as 2015, target will pay up .
Let's face it, Target cannot compete with Walmart in physical space. Amazon needs some physical presence to compete with Walmart. Future is on-line but need for ship to store., etc....A combined Amazon and Target is natural fit. GET IT DONE!
When TTS announces the key 2016 priorities and plans, the real technologists still at Target will be running for the exits. They don't want to be stuck keeping the lights on, they want to innovate....God help us.
Today I realized I no longer miss Target. As I was going through LinkedIn, seeing updates, I recognized I was feeling sorry for the people still there, instead. ( And wondering why they hadn't been able to find a job somewhere else.) Truth.
Does anyone know when the next lay off will be? If so, what area/positions? My position is being evaluated "understood" by the merch process team. Is this something to be concerned about?
I am a former TTS engineer just thought I would share as story that summed up my viewpoint of Target culture and tech. This is true story for Target told to me by an old IBM Sales guy. He got a call saying "Jack, help! we are about to open our 100th... read more
Summed up: we are going to take 4 months to deliver reviews, assign new paygrades, and rollout another roadmap for a document full of half-truths that will be relevant for exactly never. Exciting times for transformation!!!
I heard someone was fired just for farting. Anyone know if this is true?
Ask not to whom the 9AM Meeting Notice is sent; it's sent to you. How many people (besides me) are clearing out their desks? The rumour mills are turning but no news on this site... the site is passe'?
There's no such thing as a best practice book. I've asked. So sick of hearing changes are in the best interest to peons. "cuz Target cares of your well being" yet we can't bank Holidays to take time when we want. Want to save money. Stop being so... read more
News flash, JP appointment to stores chief replacing TT..... JM is now confident we have many great "days" ahead. Uhh, shouldn't we be counting success in years or decades and not days?
They tell you that you're underperforming and that you can either give your two weeks or go on probation (and most look likely bwill get fired.) This has happened to two different peopl I know, who did not know each other. They both have said the... read more
