About us:
Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America's leading retailers.

Right on pace with Target's distinctive retail brand, Target Finance and Accounting are transforming for the better. As so much more than a behind-the-scenes number-cruncher, you will be a truly collaborative partner with a seat at the table. You'll bring your unique point of view, experience and passion for the work to your team and internal clients. Within Finance, you'll enjoy the interesting challenges of the competitive retail space, and you'll have a 360-degree impact—rather than on just one part of the business. You'll see your contributions come to life in virtually every area of this dynamic enterprise. And you'll grow and be challenged in your career while having a healthy balance with life outside of work

A role in Finance Ops calls on your skills for quality financial and inventory reporting to help facilitate accurate financials and technical accounting while providing thoughtful and responsive support, expertise and guidance to business partners. Your role will be critical to ensuring the success of Target's business initiatives and core retail operations.

As an Accountant, Inventory Control, you will learn about Target's end to end price change accounting processes and play a critical role in ensuring Target's inventory is appropriately valued by performing critical accounting functions including weekly internal controls, weekly accounting corrections for missing or incorrect price changes.  You will participate in the monthly and quarterly close processes and will perform accounting accruals and analysis.  You will participate in the on-going development, execution and improvement of Price Change accounting processes and controls and will act as a subject matter expert in the end-to-end Price Change accounting processes. You will monitor certain Price Change processes and exercise discretion and independent judgment in determining how and when to process accounting corrections and will follow up with internal partners to identify and solve root causes of Price Change issues.  You will be responsible for SOX processes related to price changes and will consult in the development of new systems to ensure that proper price change controls are included in system designs.    You will also play a critical role in developing the business requirements for price changes controls and reporting as Target converts to more modern price changes processes. Projects will include identifying and driving improvements at your discretion by developing a thorough understanding of end to end processes and ad-hoc data analysis to support and guide business partners. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

About you:

  • Four year college degree in Accounting
  • Demonstrate innovative and creative problem solving skills
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong technical and analytical aptitude
  • Strong Microsoft Office Skills (Excel, Access) and SAP experience
