I think target is still killing it, especially with their 2 hour store pick up. I’m a mom of 2 under 2 and my family (plus all our friends with small kids) use this service multiple times a week. I’m a frequent Amazon shopper too, but I shop at target WAY more. Amazon can’t get me diapers, a phone charger, groceries, a dress for my toddler, pajamas for my newborn and sandals for my husband in 2 hours or less. Target can!

Shipt is a great example because that’s theirs… they’re essentially pushing every Shipt shopper through that platform, regardless of whether they order from Target or not. I’m sure they’re data mining the crap out of that to optimize their offerings/prices against competitors while making money off the platform as a service at the same time.

Target provides a very differentiated experience than Amazon. What are your concerns? Im holding a boat load of Target stock for numerous reasons, one of them being their strong position in the market compared to other retailers.

I live in DC close to a Walmart and I do 70% of my shopping there. Anything except produce, bread and meats really.

I love $TGT - their Good&Gather brand is taking over the whole store. Better margins, focus on sustainability, appeals to all generations, packaging is 🔥 …Amazon? Pls

I’m not worried about Target. They have a solid data machine, an in-store strategy that seems to be working, good collabs, and a decent digital experience. Plus curbside pick up from them is great.

I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.

I applied for a Data Security Manager role at Amazon, but the hiring manager offered me a phone interview for a Sr. Data Security Engineer role. I'm curious if there would be a penalty, i.e. I wouldn't be eligible for other roles I'd want to apply to in the future if I don't take the interview?

Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
