Target plans to add more than 130,000 seasonal team members across the country for the upcoming holiday season, including a two-fold increase in the number of roles focused on fulfilling digital orders from its stores.
Approximately 125,000 team members will fill a variety of roles at Target’s more than 1,800 stores. Approximately 8,000 opportunities are located within distribution and fulfillment centers. These team members focus on processing freight to stores and fulfilling orders placed on Target.com and the retailer’s app.
Target will host two rounds of hiring events this year. The first event will take place from October 11 to 13 and the second from November 2 to 3. Events will be hosted at all Target stores across the country from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., local time. The weekend events give candidates the opportunity to meet store leaders, with the potential to interview on the spot and receive a conditional job offer.
“It’s critical we build the right team across our stores and supply chain to deliver an exceptional holiday experience for our guests during the busiest time of the year,” said Melissa Kremer, chief human resources officer at Target. “From engaging our current team members who are interested in extra hours, to adding more than 130,000 seasonal hires, we continue to invest in our team because they make it easier and more joyful to shop at Target, especially during the holidays.”
