Target is one of the world’s most recognized brands and the second-largest retailer in the United States.
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 Target.com—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 constantly come together to implement new processes in record time. So we’re looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, risk-savvy and comfortable working in varying degrees of ambiguity. Are you a critical thinker who seeks the root cause and can analyze both qualitatively and quantitatively? Are you a creative problem-solver who simplifies problems, quickly identifies solutions, commits to a plan and then positively influences others to execute it? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.
A role in Inventory Management means applying your specialized and well-informed point of view to what we buy, from whom, how much, and where it needs to go from there. You’ll use the right combination of data and expertise to achieve the best possible product availability through proper inventory positioning. You’ll establish and develop great relationships with our vendors to encourage on-time shipment and delivery to stores and ultimately, guests.
As an Inventory Analyst Intern, you’ll gain a realistic job preview into life as an Inventory Analyst. Learn how to apply your financial, analytical and communication skills to impact the bottom line as we work to deliver products to guests anytime and anywhere. Manage a project from start to finish, and culminate your summer experience by presenting your results to leadership within your department. You’ll gain valuable insight into the day-to-day role of an Inventory Analyst, and see how they negotiate and maintain business relationships with the largest vendors in the industry. We’ll be supporting you with extensive training and robust development to help you grow as a strong Inventory Analyst Intern.
