Target to boost number of holiday workers by 30,000




MINNEAPOLIS — To improve customer service during the upcoming holiday season, Target plans to hire 30,000 more seasonal workers than it did during the busy stretch last year. The Minneapolis-based retailer will hold hiring events for the holiday push Oct. 13 to 15 at every store.

The jobs range from sales associates to distribution and fulfillment center staff.

Target has said it will tighten profit margins to make investments in its stores, which also include introducing new brands, lowering prices and introducing new technology.

The company on Tuesday held its annual fall employee meeting, during which executives laid out goals for the holiday season. People can apply in advance of the October hiring events at
