Holiday Hiring: Target Seeks 100k Workers, Walmart Pulls Back to 40k

Seasonal employees are needed across a range of roles for both companies




Both Target (Minneapolis) and Walmart (Bentonville, Ark.) have put out the call for seasonal hires for the upcoming winter holidays. Target is seeking about 100,000 part-time employees, and Walmart is reportedly looking to hire 40,000, a drop from the 150,000 workers it sought in 2021.

“To help busy families focus on what matters most this season, we’ll be welcoming approximately 40,000 additional associates in a variety of seasonal and full-time roles across our business,” Maren Waggoner, Senior VP of Field People, Walmart, confirmed in a company statement.

Target will focus on placing seasonal employees into its stores as well as fulfillment and supply chain facilities nationwide. Though its pulling back on its seasonal hiring of store and customer care associates, Walmart is seeking to hire more full-time truck drivers.
