Target to hire 100000+ this holiday season

The holidays are Target's busiest time of the year

As of January 28, Target employed about 323,000 full-time, part-time and seasonal workers, according to its annual report.

The Minneapolis-based chain is hiring approximately 100,000 seasonal workers, compared with the 70,000 hires past year. Over the past 52 weeks, the stock was down closer to 16%.

Target plans to hire 100,000 team members, including 1,500 in the Boston area and 3,000 across MA, for the holiday season.

The country's largest retailer, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which employs more 1.5 million Americans, didn't disclose how many temporary workers it planned to hire last holiday season. This is a 42.9% increase year over year.

Target said last month it will roll out ship-from-store facility to more stores ahead of the holiday season, allowing more than 1,400 stores to ship products directly to customers. "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".

Last week, Target said last week that it would slash prices on cereal, paper towels and thousands of other items.
