I've been with Target for nearly 30 years, what we are seeing now in terms of leadership changes and "managing out" reminds me a lot of how Target used to be in the 90's and early 2000's. Then the push was insane growth and it happened fast and... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Target Corp.
Any updates here? I hear layoffs are happening - I was let go in 2015. All the best.
Target is currently undergoing a thinning out of staff by "managing out" many team members. People with good annual reviews (or if the "managing out" period started before review time horrible but unrealistic reviews) suddenly under fire. Made up... read more
Target since BC and MM has created nothing but cconstant stress in my life. So much needless failure by Target .
I am a completely outside Target but occasionally enjoy reading the comments made on this website. In fact, I would have to drive about 25 miles to shop at one. Until now I have never commented here and I probably never will again. I truly feel sorry... read more
A couple (at least 2) "very important" six fig Managers from Marketing were given two months to find new jobs in May. Neither one did - I guess sitting around managing 1 person and getting paid for working 5 hours a day doesn't impress everywhere... read more
This headline for Inc. Article Aetna Lost $1 Billion Last Quarter By Forbidding Employees to Work from Home The insurance giant learns the hard way that forced collaboration doesn't create innovation.
Anyone knows? reasons is it possible it'll be back are other companies doing it
Another 500 on the way out. Starting today.
When the DC started talking about Target finally removing their heads from their asses and trying to catch up with the likes of Amazon, they talked about all the changes in the future. They said TGT needs to find a way to get the product from the... read more
BI engg VP..Directors..acclaimed Principal Engineers are of no value to Target and need to go. holding titles, delivering no results. Your shoddy solutions seen in demo day reflect your sub standard knowledge. BIA is another waste..monkeys generating... read more
Target’s Been Talking Food for a Decade. Now Amazon Could Eat Bullseye’s Lunch
Heard a rumor that Target Ticket is being brought back to take on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in the streaming space
The board needs to explore some "strategic alternatives" quickly, while there is still some value left of Target. Otherwise we're all at risk of layoff.
Hope Target has its A-game ready because Amazon + Whole Foods could put a pretty big damper on Target's already hurting foot traffic. /
I hope so. Tanked Pharmacy. Tanking Digital. After all this, they've got nothing other than a website. Nothing new comes out of this group whereas something new keeps coming up and every week. Get her out & her clown DMGs and start... read more
Is it true that Merch had demotion and that some folks were pushed into lower titles and pay grades?
And what about the "cheering leaders" he groomed...
Lot of leaders leaving or asked to leave.... Does this mean that layoffs again in coming months????
On an unrelated note, this clueless f--- visited my facility recently. You think he talked to any of the workers about what needs to change, NOPE. Just walked around with his group of yes men.
Seriously? Target wanted to BUY a mattress company? WTF. Now they will sell mattresses? Smells like Sears
Great way to cut costs and eliminate some dead wood. Really.
TTS leadership actually thinks they've taken action to solve last year's BTS. My work and workspace still s---. Target has no winning strategy. TTS is getting nothing of importance done. I hope the government still has funds to support 65% of my... read more
Was she too much for her DRs? Did she leave or was told to go?
When is upper management going to read people's comments in news articles. The biggest them is people complaining about Target out of stocks in the store. So the new Restock initiative simply means...we don't have it in the store, so don't expect to... read more
It is a pretty rough atmosphere. I think most people at HQ (myself included) would agree that there are inefficiencies, and given current decision making structures, things can't get done that quickly. The "constant" get to know yous and coffees are... read more
WTF is the Pension Plan? It says I'll get 29 a month when I retire. Is it possible to take the money lump sum now?
It takes a special kind of person to stare at a computer all day long tracking productivity of people who are actually working and then belittle and criticize the whole team first thing every single day. Geez, I wonder why nobody cares anymore... read more
It's to the point in the DC that I'm afraid to Go to the bathroom for 5 minutes because my OM will harass me about it later in the day asking me why I have a 5 minute gap with no transactions. This is getting out of control ridiculous.
Amazon once again drives BC into the turf. They blew it up, while BC hopes Target doesn't shrink much more. Good luck to everyone holding out hope at Target. Sad.
Here's some hard (but free) advice from somebody who has been there and I hope you follow it: Look. What's happening to you is you're being managed out. It happened to me, it (might) be happening to you, and it's happened to countless other people at... read more
Finally the day has come, NK is quitting TI.
I see MM has promoted real men into leadership positions. First step for Target to establish itself as a leader
It is time for BC to go. He has done the job that he was overly compensated for. He has completed the task that he is known in the industry for. He is not known to bring a company back from the grave. It is funny to me when they say they got rid of... read more
Heard from multiple people that there's some sort of reorg coming to EDABI soon. Anyone know details? Are people losing their jobs?
I'm off on Medical. Just got emailed. Target Froze own stock. Are they bankrupt or selling Company? Any word out there?
Anyone on here from HR? My boss tanked me on my review even though I have proof that projects I lead got great results. I'm not an a-- kisser and it seems that's being used against me. Others on my team who worked on the same projects got 5% + bonus... read more
Any chance for volunary layoff and package BC? I really don't want to work for the next Sears, sigh :-(
BC is incapable of driving a positive story for Target, get rid of him and team to create some potential for positive buzz.
