Target to expand holiday season staff by 130,000

Target Corporation announced on Thursday that it aims to hire 130,000 employees for the holiday season.

The number would stay at the same level from 2019, but this year, the company will focus on the flexibility of its workers due to the coronavirus pandemic. Staff handling digital orders and operating Drive Up and Order Pickup will be doubled and more employees will work at distribution centers, the retailer said.

"Knowing that the holiday season will be unlike any other, we're building in even more flexibility to make sure Target remains a safe and convenient place to work and shop, while investing in our team's industry-leading pay and benefits," Melissa Kremer, Target's chief human resources officer, commented in a statement.
