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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
