About us:

Target is one of the world’s most recognized brands and one of America’s leading retailers.

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.

There’s so much good work to be done, from Distribution Center Operations, where process and problem-solving drive our results; Quality Management, which influences and maintains our good name in the retail marketplace, or overall Distribution Center Productivity, where we’re always analyzing and recalibrating how to best support our people, process and technology investments to support an ever evolving business. 

As a Senior Director Administrative Assistant, you’ll support one or more leaders and demonstrate a keen ability to think critically in a fast-paced environment. Here, you’re an extension of your leader (s), complementing their work style while upholding Target’s values and demonstrating the utmost poise, professionalism and leadership. You’ll offer a level of service that goes above and beyond the basics. You’ll successfully manage multiple priorities and processes while staying up to date on an ever-changing retail marketplace.
