I’ve Got Your Back

I’m pretty sure that I have one of the coolest, most-rewarding jobs at Target. I get it. Working on the Product Investigations & Recall team does not sound as glamorous as collaborating with the newest design partner or hot, new musician, but when I describe my job to my friends, their responses sound something like, “That’s amazing! Your team is kind of like a bunch of CSI Agents who look for clues to solve cases.” While I never really thought of it that way before, that truly is an accurate statement. Let’s face it, recalls aren’t a sexy topic to talk about, but the work this team does to ensure your families and friends are safe is really quite remarkable.

To put it simply, our team listens. We listen to what guests, Facebook followers, store team members, vendors, buyers, government agencies, and several other partners have to say about a product when they feel that it could be unsafe. (Whew! That’s a lot of people!) We analyze every report we receive and we investigate. While we aren’t looking for fingerprints or DNA samples, we are putting the pieces of the puzzle together. What are people saying? Is this what our guests should expect from a product like this? Does the product truly live up to Target’s reputation and standards? Once we have answers to all of our questions, we partner and take action as needed.

I am a mom, wife, friend, neighbor, and consumer. As such, I, along with the team, work to ensure that the products on Target’s shelves are safe and of utmost quality for the important people in your lives–just as they are for mine. While we don’t get the press of those who collaborate with Lilly Pulitzer or Taylor Swift, we are here, we are listening, and we’ve got your backs so you don’t have to worry. Now how cool is that?

    Please bare with me & my writing. What I feel & think, I now have the hardest time expressing myself. After reading your letter. I definitely feel that you guys are an excellent team. Don’t quit, especially when things get harder or when you feel that you hit a wall. If anything, this is where you will be tested meaning how strong you guys are as a team. And, as oneself. I would be more than proud to be a part of your team and/or a teammember. Yes, I do agree you guys are the backbone of the store. Aloha.

    Yours truly,

    Victoria K. Kahapea

    I am a retired Pharmacist who wants to go back to work. Your job sounds very challenging and rewarding. In Tennessee would you have a comparable job that I could explore with you?

    Targets STUPID RULE if you buy something at one store you can’t return it at another store the same day. You have to wait 24 hours. So if you go to another store to get a different size and they don’t have it you have to go back to the first store to return it or wait 24 hours. STUPID RULE
