Holiday Hours, Staffing and More Ways to Save
Target invests in its team members and values the individuals who come together as a team to serve its guests. In October, the company announced a minimum wage increase to $11 an hour for all team members, including thousands of team members hired for the holidays. During the holiday season, Target works closely with its team members to understand scheduling preferences and compensates all hourly team members who work on national holidays, including Thanksgiving, with pay equal to time-and-a-half their hourly rate. Also, all hourly team members who work certain shifts on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the weekends leading up to Christmas will receive additional compensation on top of premium holiday pay. This holiday pay is an investment in Target's team and the elevated experience they provide to Target guests during the holiday season. Target's extended hours for the holidays include:
•Nov. 23: All stores open at 6 p.m. and close at midnight
•Nov. 24: All stores open at 6 a.m. and close at 10, 11 p.m. or midnight
