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 Target.com—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? Are you a creative problem-solver who simplifies problems, quickly identifies solutions, commits to a plan and then positively influences others to execute it? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.
A role in Indirect Supply Chain and Reverse Logistics means managing the inbound throughput and placement of the indirect materials that are required to operate the stores. This also includes the logistics operations for guest returns.

Indirect Logistics includes order execution and movement, warehousing/storage, operations such as facility and 3PL management and inventory management including demand management and forecasting.
A role in Indirect Inventory Management means applying your specialized and well-informed point of view to what we buy, from whom, how much, and where it needs to go from there. You’ll use the right combination of data and expertise to achieve the best possible product availability through proper inventory positioning. You’ll establish and develop great relationships with our vendors to encourage on-time shipment and delivery to stores and ultimately, guests.
As an Inventory Analyst, you'll develop business strategies to drive availability and profitable sales. Make an impact by managing and allocating inventory to stores, negotiating and maintain business relationships with the largest vendors in the industry, and formulating in-depth inventory forecasts. It’s your skills that help bring guests what they want, when they want it, whether guests shop our stores or online.
