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. 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 Closing Team Leader can provide you with: 

  • Knowledge of guest service fundamentals and experience building and fostering a guest first culture across the store 
  • Experience driving storewide sales volume and profitability results  
  • Capabilities in developing effective business partnerships across store to achieve common goals 
  • Skills in workload efficiency across the store including leading closing routines and coaching team members in all areas  

As a Closing Team Leader, no two days are ever the same, but a typical day will most likely include the following responsibilities: 

  • Understand your role in sales growth and how each area contributes to and impacts total store profitability 
  • Problem solve and prioritize across multiple business areas to execute store strategies as initiated by the Store Director to deliver business results and store sales goals while prioritizing the guest experience 
  • Be a partner to the store leadership team through communication and collaboration to influence current sales performance and workload deliverables, leverage daily check-ins, check-outs and leadership meetings as connection points 
  • See total store operations through the lens of the guest, establish consistent routines and lead the team to ensure departments are zoned, in-stock, signed and labeled appropriately, setting the store up for success the next day 
  • Use business planning tools to share priorities and business updates with store leadership 
  • Take action to achieve performance goals 
  • Expect and enable team members to stay up-to-date on relevant trends and products 
  • Evaluate and recommend candidates for open positions and develop a guest-centric team 
  • Lead team onboarding and learning and help close skill gaps through development, coaching and team member interactions  
  • Establish clear goals and expectations and hold team members accountable to expectations; partner with leaders as needed to share performance feedback 
  • As a key carrier, follow all safe and secure training and processes 
  • 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 
  • All other duties based on business needs
