Another national retailer announced Thursday a seasonal hiring frenzy. Target plans to hire 120,000 seasonal team members nationwide, which is a 20 percent increase over 2017's holiday season.
Employees hired after Sept. 16 and will start at $12 an hour, according to a press release from the company. A nationwide seasonal hiring event takes place 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 12-14. Candidates can apply in advance today by visiting TargetSeasonalJobs.com.
Seasonal hiring may be more challenging for employers this year. The state’s low unemployment rate, 2.8 percent, is creating a tight labor market.
