Target Boosting Pay for Peak Holiday Period Work
Posted In: Retail Articles


Hourly Target workers in store, service center and supply chain positions, as well as select headquarters and seasonal employees, will receive an extra $2 per hour for each hour worked during peak periods through the holiday season, the company announced.

For hourly store, select headquarter and service center employees, the extra pay will come from working every Saturday and Sunday from November 20 to December 19, plus Friday, December 24 and Sunday, December 26.

For hourly supply chain employees, the extra pay comes from working for a two-week period, varied based on building, from October 10 to December 18.

Target has been adding more hours, pay, training and flexibility for employees even before the most recent pay boost announcement, it noted. For store workers, the company is offering an additional five million hours, or more than $75 million in pay, through the holiday season. Through its recently announced mobile scheduling app, Target employees can conveniently add or swap shifts that align with their schedules, the company added.

In addition, Target is hiring 100,000 seasonal employees at stores across the country to deal with the holiday rush, planning to hire many permanently after, and 30,000 workers for its supply chain facilities across the United States to help guests to get what they need when they need it, the retailer indicated.

In a note to employees, Target chief human resources officer Melissa Kremer said, “This team continues to be at the heart of our strategy. You have shown up consistently for our guests and one another with a tremendous amount of care, and we know this busy holiday season will be no different. This is just one more way of expressing our deep gratitude for your significant contributions. Thank you for the many ways you bring joy to all families and for all you do to make Target a place where we can care, grow and win together.”
