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. Caring for our communities is woven into who we are, and we invest in the places we collectively live, work and play. 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.  

Right on pace with Target’s distinctive retail brand, Target Store Operations is transform the way it operates. Here, your work directly supports the store mission to be the guest-favorite through successfully developing and communicating the processes for operations, structure, model, technology and workforce management activities at 1,800 locations nationwide. Store Operations manages and enhances the informational resources for researching and resolving operational issues, while guiding and communicating with the field team and leaders who use them. Are you a customer service enthusiast who can actively listen to many points of view and then visualize how they’ll perform when operationalized in a store? Are you happy to partner with leaders as well as field team members who are often the experts on how well a process is working?

You will be responsible for executing the store ops project plan, preparing store communication, engaging field leaders through kickoff and post-open calls, leading store director training, and supporting the resolution of issues stores experience through the opening process. 

In your role, you will advocate for our stores and will work cross-functionally with several HQ teams to cultivate strong partnerships across the business. You will also support change management and will drive improvements in the areas of process, technology, and team member/guest experience.
