I went into Target last night looking for batteries, and I came out with a killer job tip.

Turns out, Target stores nationwide will be hosting a huge seasonal hiring event in two weeks.

All told, the retailer is looking to hire 70,000 team members to work in-store and 7,500 for distribution and fulfillment facilities during the holiday season.

That’s a lot of open seasonal jobs!

And they’re with a company that takes care of its employees.

Target Employee Benefits

In addition to competitive pay — including its recent jump to a $10-an-hour minimum wage — Target employees get a 10% discount on Target purchases.

Target also offers a flexible schedule “to help you balance life and work.”

To join in, look for Target stores in your area. Each will hold an in-store hiring event on Oct. 14 and 15 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Drop in during that time to meet the team and learn more about the open seasonal jobs. You may also have the opportunity to interview on the spot, so dress the part and prepare for common interview questions!
