We’re proud to say that our team members are known for going the extra mile. Every day, they put their skills and expertise to work creating new and exciting experiences for guests and supporting their communities across the country.
That kind of effort is something to recognize. One way we’ll do it? This October, we’re raising our minimum hourly wage to $11—and we plan to increase the minimum hourly wage for all team members over the next few years to reach $15 by the end of 2020.
“Target has a long history of investing in our team members. We care about and value the more than 323,000 individuals who come together every day with an absolute commitment to serving our guest,” says Brian Cornell, CEO and chairman. “We’ve always offered market-competitive wages to our team members. With this latest commitment, we’ll be providing even more meaningful pay, as well as the tools, training and support our team needs to build their skills, develop professionally and offer the service and expertise that set Target apart.”
The big investment means pay increases for thousands of our team members across the country before the holiday season, and will also apply to the approximately 100,000 seasonal team members we’re hiring right now.
And it’s just one of the benefits we offer to reward our talented team members and help them grow in their careers, along with training and development opportunities, a variety of schedules to fit their diverse needs, merchandise discounts and life resources.
