As a Field Investigator no two days are ever the same, but a typical day will most likely include the following responsibilities:

Drive your business to grow sales ​
  • Ensure the protection of Target team members, physical assets and corporate facilities - and increase profitability by resolving theft and reducing shortage
  • Support a theft and shortage prevention and resolution culture to ensure product is in stock and available for our guests

  • Partner with law enforcement, HQ, field and GSCL AP teams to aggregate applicable investigations charges. Ensure all prosecution/referral of local theft and fraud investigations are completed to the highest possible level and when necessary, represent Target in court and legal proceedings
  • Identify all aspects of emerging theft opportunities, trends and cases within your market using reporting, trend analysis, and internal and external partners to initiate and investigate theft activity
