It's the holiday season and Target has come out with fresh creative that catches the eye and ear again. It's consistently good work - year in and year out. Add to that programs like up2d8 and their localized community relations work and it's no wonder they get the kudo's they do.

Thanks for this post and your insights. I found the reasons Target should consider an employee blog to be of particular importance. As a result, I've added it to my list of marketing blogs that should be reviewed for Monday's (11/28) "Much Ado About Marketing" blog.

Thanks again,

I work at a target store in texas and i think that it would be great for employees if we had a blog. If the company is as great as they claim to be then i don't see what the problem is.

I wish there was a place to talk about employes being fired from Target. I worked in a michigan store for almost a year and a half. December and Janurary I recieved 5 guest comment cards and letters from vp of target. Find myself Feburary @/18/09 being fired for placing my name on a clearence iteam in eletronics. I had two days of and went to find out I was fired with no warning, it was in the handbook imediate termination, which to my surprise i didint relize you could be fired. I thought I would least get a warning of such, which I find out later that week another employ get a warning for doing the same thing. I heard Target likes to make a example of people but why me , why anyone. If there is anything I can do,( I loved my job) please let me know. Tim store 1971


These tools are now also available by means of http://rapid4me.com/ . If you still need them, of course...


I agree, the idea of an employee blog would be amazing. As well as help others who seek promotions; it would be a great way to seek advise on how to obtain the new promotion. I'm an employee at Target on the Sales Floor (I also do guest service, electronics, cart attendant, ect. I'm trained almost everywhere). I know my STL wants to promote me to a Team Lead in the store really badly. However, me being in high school is a huge conflict with him (because where I live there's a law saying now minor or person in high school may work after 10:00 p.m. and Target's policy is 9:45 at the latest, I have to be out of the door). What I'm getting at is, that if there was a blog to get tips on how to improve my performance at Target while I am still actively improving my performance at Target, it would've been such a great help. I would love to see something like this happen for Target. My old job did, but it wasn't in the same field and they were not very nice people.


I am a Canadian who shops and has spent thousands of dollars at Target. I drive south to Target stores and even stay at hotels while shopping at Target to give me more time. I hear that Target is opening in Canada in the next couple of years which made me happy.
My happiness is short lived since reading that Target is funding anti gay groups and refuses to fund gay groups. As a lesbian why in the heck would I ever shop at Target again? Not. I just spent over $800 last week in Buffalo Target.
That I consider my last Target experience. If Target thinks it can get away with this discrimination and funding discrimination when it comes to Canada then think again.Gays are organized active and well to do. I know I personally plan to put my efforts behind making my community aware of Targets discriminatory policies.
Shame on Target! I hope all Canadians hear about this before you make your launch. I plan on writing to all gay newspapers and magazines and letting them know. I am sorry because I like the products but I will not be discriminated again by Targets hateful policies.
