Target To Hire About 100,000 Seasonal Team Members For Holiday Season

Target Corp. (TGT) said it plans to hire approximately 100,000 team members across the country for the upcoming holiday season.

The announcement ensures that Target's 1,816 stores will be staffed this holiday season, whether team members are helping guests directly or fulfilling online orders.

In addition, Target will hire 4,500 team members at the company's distribution and fulfillment centers to replenish products to stores and fulfill digital sales throughout the season.

"Target has made significant investments in our business throughout 2017, and our commitment to hire 100,000 team members for the holidays will make shopping at Target even easier and more fun during one of the busiest times of the year," Janna Potts, chief stores officer of Target said.

Target said it is offering certain benefits to the team members, including market-competitive wages, a 10 percent merchandise discount at Target and Target.com, an additional 20 percent merchandise wellness discount for fruits and vegetables and all Simply Balanced and C9 merchandise, in addition to a variety of schedules that allow team members to work various hours.

Target noted that based on the success of last year's seasonal hiring events, it will host hiring events at all stores nationwide on Friday, October 13 through Sunday, October 15.

The events will take place at each of the company's 1,816 stores from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day for the 100,000 store positions, with the potential for eligible applicants to interview on-the-spot and receive a conditional job offer during the weekend events.
