Target Looks to Hire 14,300 Seasonal California Workers
MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Target’s plan to hire more than 70,000 workers to ensure strong customer service during the holiday rush is underway. The retailer’s spree is kicking off in California with a plan of hiring about 14,300 workers.
The company’s nearly 1,800 locations will all host hiring events this month, Chief Stores Officer, Janna Potts, told news source Pasadena Star News, meeting with tens of thousands of potential employees over a two-day period.
According to the report, pre-scheduled interviews will be conducted by individual store leaders, as they explain company culture and potential candidacy, with the possibility of on-the-spot job offers.
Target is also looking to fill 7,500 seasonal positions for its distribution and fulfillment facilities for the holidays, and current openings listed on the company’s website include several positions in Georgia, as well as some in South Carolina and Virginia beginning to pop up.
