You’re working alongside a dedicated team that brings their passion and pride to all that they do.

ALL ABOUT CLOSING

The Closing team continues the momentum from the team’s day of hard work to finish strong; they take care of the guest until the doors close each night. The Closing team’s priorities mirror those of the Store Director. They have a deep understanding of each leader’s vision for their business, they prioritize through the eyes of the guest and have fun with the team while nailing closing routines.

At Target, we believe in our team members having meaningful experiences that help them build and develop skills for a career. The role of an Executive Team Leader Closing can provide you with:

  • Knowledge of guest service fundamentals and experience building and managing a guest-first culture across the store
  • Skills in guest engagement, problem-solving and resolution
  • Knowledge of retail business fundamentals; department sales trends, inventory management, guest shopping patterns, pricing and promotions strategies
  • Experience setting stores monthly and quarterly workload to support business priorities and managing a team to deliver sales goals
  • Experience managing closing routines and overseeing total store operations while partnering with area and store leaders on procedure, process and team member concerns
  • Skills in managing process improvement and workload efficiency across the store
  • Skills in recruiting, selecting and talent management of hourly team members and leaders

  • Be a peer leader to the store leadership team through communication and collaboration to influence current sales performance and workload deliverables, leverage leader check-ins and check-outs as daily connection points
  • Know and assess the competition; leverage guest insights and feedback to drive the business
  • See the store through the lens of the guest, ensure the store is set up for success the following day and the team is operating efficiently through service, in-stocks, zone, brand and team
  • Lead, coach and develop Closing Team Leaders to problem solve and prioritize across multiple business areas while focusing on the guest experience
  • Identify the root cause of problems and take action to achieve performance goals

  • Address store needs (emergency, regulatory visits, etc.)
  • Provide service and a shopping experience that meets the needs of the guest
  • Always demonstrate a culture of ethical conduct, safety and compliance; lead and hold the team accountable to work in the same way
