About Us:

As a Fortune 50 company with more than 350,000 team members worldwide, Target is an iconic brand and one of America's leading retailers.  

Working at Target means the opportunity to help all families discover the joy of everyday life.

We prioritize relationships, fuel and develop talent by creating growth opportunities, and succeed as one Target team. At our core, our purpose is ingrained in who we are, what we value, and how we work. It’s how we care, grow, and win together.

Target Global Supply Chain and Logistics is evolving at an incredible pace. We are constantly reimagining how we get the right product to the right guest even better, faster and more cost effectively than before. We are becoming more intelligent, automated and algorithmic in our decision-making, so that no matter how guests shop—in stores or on—we deliver the convenience and immediate gratification they demand and deserve. We are on a mission to win decisively over any competitor, with a seamless and superior guest service experience unlike any they can offer. Our teams work with the agility our mission requires, and we constantly come together to implement new processes in record time. So we’re looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, risk-savvy and comfortable working in varying degrees of ambiguity. Are you a critical thinker who seeks the root cause and can analyze both qualitatively and quantitatively?

If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.  

A role in Supply Chain means being on the very front lines of getting product to the guest as fast as possible—a critical differentiator and one of the most essential functions within Logistics.

You will conduct technical interviews of internal and external technician candidates, evaluate technical skills and abilities, and train and coach internal technicians to advance their technical skills and acumen.

You will proactively monitor and evaluate trainees’ progress within our maintenance technician curriculum and certification progression.  The Technical Trainer will follow a curriculum that teaches fundamental theory or equipment-specific material for all electrical, mechanical, and control systems of Material Handling Equipment (MHE) on site, including state-of-the-art conveyor and sortation systems, robotics, and Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS).   

An ideal candidate should be a self-starter who can multitask and work well in a fast-paced and constantly evolving environment. Candidates should possess the ability to inspect, maintain, troubleshoot, repair, train, and coach across various resources and scenarios. You must maintain thorough knowledge, train appropriate safety procedures, use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) while maintaining equipment (Lock Out/Tag Out, Arc Flash, etc.), and ensure a safe work environment by eliminating potential equipment safety hazards.  A Technical Trainer needs to have excellent presentation and communication skills with the ability to adapt to different learning styles and varying skill levels.  Core responsibilities of this job are described within this job description.  Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
