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.

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 regularly come together to implement new processes in record time.

A role in a Distribution Center means being on the very front lines of getting the product to the guest as fast as possible—a critical differentiator and one of the essential Logistics functions. You’ll reach beyond the bounds of your team to partner across the enterprise and find solutions to support the business. Whether it’s through focusing on our regional or upstream distribution centers, import warehouses, or fulfillment and flow centers, you’ll have a chance to positively impact thousands of fellow team members and Target guests worldwide, further differentiating Target from all the rest. 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 Scheduling Coordinator, you’ll work quickly and efficiently to optimize appointment availability, so Target can reliably supply food for our stores and guests. You’ll be managing and creating a plan for high-priority deliveries, solving scheduling and carrier-related problems, and coordinating the movement of trailers to support warehouse operations. You’ll do this while taking the appropriate partners, including Operations Managers, Vendors, Carriers, and Inventory Analysts, when needed. You’ll also assist in analyzing inbound trends for vendors or carriers, as well as receipt timing for significant events and seasons. We’ll teach you our step-by-step processes so that your work is free from errors and allows flexibility to create unique solutions rapidly. You may also be trained to support functions within the warehouse related to inventory management, quality assurance, and problem-solving carrier no-shows. This role would require a 5-day work week with the possibility of weekend coverage. It is also vital that you report to work on time and complete job tasks assigned accurately, and contribute to the overall Distribution Center results.
