About us:

As a Fortune 50 company with more than 400,000 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.

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 Accounting, 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 the Controller's Group calls on your skills for quality financial reporting and 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 in Property Accounting you will be an active partner in accounting for and analyzing more than $3 billion in annual capital spend, with a focus on store related spend. You will ensure timely and accurate month-end close responsibilities, including preparation of SAP journal entries and financial statement disclosures, execution of SOX internal controls and analytical review of monthly results. You will create and maintain projects in our SAP sub-ledger and review construction project details to ensure appropriate accounting treatment. You will partner with Financial Planning & Analysis to contribute to the forecast/goal for key financial statement line items and work closely with Construction and Real Estate business teams to support capital project accounting, reporting and analysis. You will work on special projects and ad-hoc analysis as needed. You will develop strong relationships in order to influence partners and provide decision support to teams across the company. You will drive innovation and use analytics to improve processes, will enforce governance policies around capital spend and maintain a strong internal control environment.

Core responsibilities of this job are described within this job description. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

About you:
  • Four-year degree in Accounting or Finance; and 2-4 years of related experience
  • Strong accountant with knowledge of GAAP
  • Data analysis and modeling experience with tools like Excel to identify trends
  • Ability to work independently and maintain a high level of initiative
