About Us:

As a Fortune 50 company with more than 350,000 team members worldwide, Target is an iconic brand and one of America's leading retailers.

Working at Target means the opportunity to help all families discover the joy of everyday life. Caring for our communities is woven into who we are, and we invest in the places we collectively live, work and play. We prioritize relationships, fuel and develop talent by creating growth opportunities, and succeed as one Target team. At our core, our purpose is ingrained in who we are, what we value, and how we work. It's how we care, grow, and win together.

One of the world's leading and most recognized brands requires an industry-leading Asset Protection team who ensures the safety and security of our team, guests, store and merchandise. We use preventive techniques to maintain a comfortable, safe and secure environment, whether within our stores, our headquarters and throughout our supply chain. Here you will promote a culture of mindfulness around safety and security, while preventing and responding to incidents that fall within our many areas of expertise.

As a Field Investigator no two days are ever the same, but overall you will be responsible for ensuring the protection of Target team members, physical assets and corporate facilities as well as increasing profitability by resolving theft and fraud investigations and reducing shortage. You will support a shortage prevention and resolution culture to ensure product is in stock and available our guests by leading complex market/regional/national theft cases including Organized Retail Crime (ORC), fraud, brand and reputational issues. You will be expected to develop and investigate major organized external and internal cases, which may result in a significant loss to Target, and to use methods of prevention, detection, investigation, resolution and recovery. You will collaborate with law enforcement, retail peers, HQ, field and store Assets Protection teams to aggregate applicable investigation charges, and when necessary represent Target in legal proceedings.

This position may be considered for a Remote or Hybrid (known internally at Target as "Flex for Your Day") work arrangement based on Target's needs. A Remote work arrangement means the team member works full-time from home or an alternate location that's not a Target location, does not have a desk at a Target location and may travel to HQ up to 4 times a year. A Hybrid/Flex for Your Day work arrangement means the team member's core role may be performed either remote or onsite at a Target location depending upon what your role, team and tasks require for that day. Work duties cannot be performed outside of the country of the primary work location, unless otherwise prescribed by Target.
