It’s beginning to look a lot like … well, maybe not quite yet, but here at Target, we’re already building the team that will help our guests create a festive holiday season with their families.
To kick things off, we’re planning to hire approximately 100,000 team members to serve guests at our 1,816 stores across the U.S., and an additional 4,500 team members for our distribution centers (DCs) and fulfillment facilities. The increase in hires—which will help us keep improving our guest service—is part of the investments we announced earlier this year.
The positions are available beginning today (click here to view and apply), including some new store positions that will help make holiday shopping seamless and enjoyable all season long.
“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.
Find your perfect fit
Across the country, we’re hiring for a variety of different positions. In the stores, we’re looking for about 100,000 hourly team members to help stock the hottest holiday toys and help guests find the perfect gifts.
As we grow Target’s digital capabilities, we have opportunities for store team members to fulfill online orders through our popular Order Pickup service available at all stores, and growing ship-from-store capabilities at more than 1,200 locations. And at our distribution and fulfillment centers, team members will make sure products reach guests quickly, shipping both store and Target.com orders.
Enjoy the benefits
As team members take care of our guests, we also want to make sure they take care of themselves and their families too—so we offer a number of compelling benefits, including market-competitive wages and a variety of schedules.
Additionally, team members will receive two discounts: a 10 percent merchandise discount at Target and Target.com and an additional 20 percent wellness discount on fruits and veggies, Simply Balanced brand foods and C9 athletic gear. And finally, like we’ve done in past years, we’ll give our current team members across the country the chance to add extra holiday hours to their schedules.

During the events, candidates can stop in for on-site interviews for store positions with the opportunity to get a conditional job offer on the spot.
