CHICAGO — Target will host several hiring events this weekend to bring on 2,500 holiday workers for its Chicago area stores — as part of the retailer's plans to hire up to 100,000 seasonal team members across the country.

For the second straight year, Target is set to host 1,816 simultaneous, in-store hiring events nationwide "to ensure stores are fully staffed to help guests during the busy holiday shopping season," according to a news release.

With Target’s recent minimum wage increase, all new seasonal hires will begin at $11 an hour.

The hiring events are set for 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at all Target stores.

There are Target stores at 2656 N. Elston Ave. in Logan Square/Bucktown, 1200 N. Larabee St. in Old Town, 2650 N. Clark St. in Lakeview, 1154 S. Clark St. in South Loop and more neighborhoods. Click here to find other stores in Chicago.

Candidates for Target’s seasonal positions can apply online in advance of this weekend’s hiring events, at TargetSeasonalJobs.com.

At the hiring events, store leaders will conduct pre-scheduled interviews with applicants and discuss the positions that are available at their stores. Candidates may also have the opportunity to interview on-the-spot and receive a conditional job offer, the company said.
