The most popular Target employee benefits
Jump to section

Target Corp. is a retail giant. It's one of the largest department store chains in the US, with around 1,926 stores. 75% of people live within 10 miles of a Target.

Target is always hiring new team members. If you get the job, you'll gain valuable skills. It's a team environment, and Target is an equal opportunity employer.

Working here also comes with a list of perks. The list includes comprehensive healthcare benefits, retirement plans, and an employee assistance program. Plus, you can save when you shop at the store.

Want to know more? Keep reading because we're about to tell you about the top Target benefits and pay. We'll also give you a rundown of the eligibility timeline.

What is Target?

The first Target stores opened in Minnesota in 1962. They were marketed as discount stores with a difference — quality products, good service, and low prices are what makes Target stand out.

In 1966, Target expanded to Denver, Colorado. This was the start of bigger things as Target stores began to pop up across the US.

These days, Target sells just about everything from food, clothing, household goods, electronics, pet supplies, small appliances, and sporting goods to cosmetics. In addition to the in-store shopping experience, customers can now shop online.

Its biggest competitors include Walmart, Costco, Amazon, and Dollar Tree.

Target offers a wide variety of different positions for job searchers. For example, you can apply to work in a Target store, at one of the distribution centers, or in a corporate role.

Target employees can work full-time or part-time. Sometimes seasonal positions are available during busy holiday periods.

The Target logo has changed slightly over the years, but the company is known for its red and white bullseye.

Let's take a look at some of the most popular perks:

Medical and pharmacy benefits

Target employees can take advantage of healthcare insurance. Depending on your eligibility, you may get access to medical insurance. This comes with all the basics and critical illness, accident, and hospital indemnity insurance.

There's also dental and vision insurance with coverage options for your whole family. Target covers both domestic partners and married couples.

Your policy will even come with prescription drug coverage, with access to low-cost medications.

You may be eligible for an employee assistance program through Team Member LifeResources. Plus, a 20% wellness discount can be used on different health services.

Target Employee Financial Benefits:

You'll get access to a 401(k) retirement plan so you can set money aside for your future. When you save part of your pre-tax income, Target will match some of your contributions.

There are options for time off. For example, you may get vacation leave, national holidays, personal days, and well-being time. These options help you get a good work-life balance and manage your role with other commitments.

You'll get peace of mind when you have life insurance and short-term and long-term disability insurance. There's also an identity theft protection program to keep your personal details secure.

Sometimes, expenses can catch you off guard. You can sign up for a healthcare and daycare flexible account (FSA), so the money is there when you need it.

There are caregiving benefits, such as adoption assistance reimbursement and family leave. And there's an annual bonus program and educational assistance.

Target Employee Career Benefits

Your Target position can be a temporary job while you study. Alternatively, it could be a long-term career choice.

To help you succeed, Target has several career benefits. For example, there are learning resources and leadership development programs. If you start as an associate, there are opportunities to climb the ladder and become a manager.

From induction training to ongoing coaching and mentoring, you’ll get all the tools you need to succeed.

Unique Target Employee Benefits

There are additional employee benefits that are exclusive to Target.

For example, both salary and hourly employees get a Target employee discount. You'll get a discount card that gives you 10% off when you shop.
