What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable?

How does Target stack up against the competition?

yes, they will survive and thrive as long as they remain number two behind walmart.. they don't have that many stores, plenty of room for expansion.. all the negative stuff that hits walmart.. employee relations, imported merchandise will be under the radar because Target is only number two...

Remember the glory days of KMART, Sears and Wards? Anything is possible. There internal workforce issues haven't bled out and visably affected Target's competition. There is every reason to believe they'll realize they need to make a change and it will be a very painful turn around.
Target is thriving, but not to it's true potential.
The current CEO is supposed to move on in approximately 2 years. That should spur some change. The rumored successor has a reputation of being more reasonable.

If they keep givinvg less hours of course they are saving money more money more product and slaving about 15 workers for what 30 0r 40 workers should be doing this is not a good company to work for take my advice.

There have been a lot of Role changes in the stores and for some reason a lot of the ETL-HR's that have been with the company for a long time are retiring.. I think corporate is kindly pushing out all the old dogs that eat a big chunk of payrole out to get new lower paid ones in. They no longer have a "Specialist position" which is between a Team Member with Team Lead pay, now they have "brand manager" which is a Specialist with Team Member pay..
