As the leaves begin to fall, we can’t help but look ahead to the exciting and festive holiday season on the way. One tradition we’re keeping alive? For the third year in a row, Target plans to hire an additional 70,000 team members in our stores for the holiday season. In addition, we’ve already begun seasonal hiring at our distribution and fulfillment facilities.

“As we have in the past, we’ll work with our existing team members across the country to offer them additional hours first,” says Tina Tyler, chief stores officer. “Then, we’ll bring in about 70,000 team members to help us through the exciting and busy season. The work we do together will help bring the holidays to life for the millions of guests who visit our Target stores.”

Target teams will soon begin training so they’re ready to take on important holiday roles—including unloading millions of cartons of products from the trucks, making sure our shelves are filled with holiday goodies, and setting up festive signs and displays across the store. They’ll also help our guests find the perfect gifts, home décor, menu items, and everything else they need to make their holidays magic. Even Bullseye wants you to join the team this holiday—check out this fun animation.
