Thread regarding Target Corp. layoffs

Those who got laid off or left voluntarily- where did you end up, do you like it better, why/why not?

Just curious. I was laid off, ended up at Best Buy. So far I'm really liking it, more straight forward and nimble.

I got laid off in March and I have had 6 offers since. Life is great beyond Target. Target of old was shit with so much emphasis on "coffee status". The Target of new will be better eventually...

Patterson Companies and it's awesome! Much happier here.

I left on my own several months ago and went to Bluestem Brands, a smaller $2B retailer who's brands include Fingerhut. The fact that I left Target really pained me because I loved the brand and the people. What drove me away was the uncertainty of my future; not necessarily whether I'd have a job (but that did play in), but what I'd being doing as a PG19. I'm very happy at Bluestem where the people are equally nice, the leadership is top-notch, and I have the ability (and requirement) to drive change at a much faster pace. My advice to anyone who listens is to treat your career like a business. Blind loyalty to a company, especially one as big as Target, will not always be rewarded.

Don't give up. There is always a company willing to hire a hard working and skilled person. Remember, it is up to YOURSELF to build your future. On the other hand, if you depend on a company's decision to be "pushed up" or promoted just because of tenure, boy you are destined to fail.

Laid off in March, still no work, 15 years with Target, 8 years with a competitor prior to that. There were some opportunities but with family responsibilities it'd be hard to have a 30+ mile commute. Still looking, I hope things will work out soon. It's a big burden on us from a financial standpoint but we still have 6+ months of cash reserves so I am not freaking out yet. Healthcare is through my husband for now. Good luck to all.
