Target is hiring for the holidays!
If you’ve ever felt like you spend so much time at Target that they should just put you on the payroll, now is the time to get your foot in the door! With the holiday shopping season quickly approaching, Target is planning to hire more than 130,000 employees to fill seasonal positions!
Target expects to hire 125,000 seasonal team members across its 1,800 stores nationwide, with all positions starting at $13 an hour or more. The company is also planning to hire about 8,000 seasonal team members at its 39 distribution and fulfillment centers across the country.
In addition to Target’s competitive wages, all hourly team members (including seasonal hires) enjoy a range of benefits, like a 10% discount, 20% discount on select wellness products, holiday pay, and flexible scheduling.
Here’s what Melissa Kremer, chief human resources officer had to say:
“We’re so excited to start welcoming our new seasonal hires, and give them opportunities to train and prepare with the rest of our team as we head into the busy holiday season. Getting an early start with those preparations made a big difference for us last year, and it’s a great way to get the entire Target team pumped up for the most fun and exciting time of the year.”
If you’re interested in applying for a seasonal position at Target, visit the Target Careers page to view the available positions and to begin the application process. You can also stop by your local store or distribution center in the next couple of weeks to apply in person.
All Target stores will also be holding seasonal hiring events on October 11-13. Candidates can stop in at any store from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time to meet with store leaders and to interview on the spot. Those interested in learning more about a distribution role are encouraged to reach out to their local distribution center with questions.
