Target is hiring more than 100000 holiday workers

Target says they will hire an additional 4,500 people for its distribution centers and fulfillment facilities.

Target is planning on hiring 100,000 employees to work over the holiday season.

During the second quarter, Target had registered comparable digital channel sales growth of 32 percent, on top of 16 percent growth in the year-ago period.

Both Target and Walmart are trying to hold their own against Amazon.com, which is encroaching on multiple fronts. The Seattle company acquired Whole Foods over the summer, not only putting it in direct competition with the grocery operations of Target and Walmart, but also providing hundreds of new locations from which to deliver goods to customers.

Shares of Target were last seen up nearly 3% at $59.50, with a consensus analyst price target of $58.90 and a 52-week range of $48.56 to $79.33. Getting help with online orders or picking up those items at a store has been a "pretty lousy experience" at many retailers, he said.

The hiring process is kicking off online and in stores.

According to this mega-retailer, it plans to hire roughly 100,000 team members across the country for the upcoming holiday season. Last year, the chain added 70,000 seasonal workers.

Target will hold recruiting events at each of its 1,800 stores from October 13 through 15.
