POSTED September 24, 2017
The Target Corporation plans to hire 100,000 seasonal employees at stores across the country and 4,500 team members for its distribution and fulfillment facilities for the holiday season.
Target is the nation's second largest retailer behind Wal-Mart with 1,816 stores across the country.
Wal-Mart said it would increase hours for current employees during the holidays instead of hiring more seasonal employees.
“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. Target team members play such an important role in helping guests as they prepare to celebrate the holidays with their families. As always, we will provide our seasonal team members with meaningful opportunities to build and develop skills, and offer great benefits, including a variety of schedules and team member discounts,” said Janna Potts, chief stores officer, Target.
The 100,000 seasonal workers will fill a variety of roles at Target stores, distribution and fulfillment centers, including:
