I am confused…We were all told Target in Canada was not Target USA…but……
I am very confused target leadership. Since day one, over a year ago, we heard from the leadership how we are target Canada, we have a head office in Mississauga, and are not just an extension of target USA.
There is even a whole management team for target Canada as well. Then it came time for Quebec stores to open up, and getting things right there was clearly important to target, as so far they had not got things right in the rest of the country yet. No doubt a team of marketers and other was set up to get things right for Quebec, just as many things from the US don’t translate right away to English Canada simply, well much more so that those US things won’t translate to French Canada. Quebec culture won’t really accept things like calling a Customer a guest,…an an example. a Guest is someone you invite into your home, and have coffee with around a fireplace or a glass of wine or something. My understanding is that the word “client” is being used. I hope I am making my point. US concepts just can”t be imported here or shoved in our faces and it will all work out somehow.
Which brings me too my point, and confusion….(most things about target are confusing to many of us, but we try and just go with the flow)…if we work for a Canadian target , a separate subsidiary even , why on earth do our Canadian T4 slips say issued by target, brooklyn park MN, USA?????????? If we have a real valid head office in Mississauga , (and it is not just a sham), why on earth do our Canadian tax forms not show issued from there, and not MN?????
Is this simply more lies target? or?
