Target definitely hires Felons. I’m proof of that. I was concerned when they offered me a conditional employment offer & I submitted my info for my background check because a couple weeks before that I had done the same process for Lane Bryant & was told they couldn’t hire me because of my felony. Turned out to be a blessing in disguise because Target paid nearly 1 1/2 times what Lane Bryant was going to pay me AND was twice as many hours!

If you’re considering applying for work with Target just be honest about your history & there is a great chance you will get hired. This comes from someone with two theft charges (more than 10 years old & stemming from a drug addiction) & a year old Felony for trying to buy a gun and for not knowing I had been labeled as involuntarily admitted to a mental health facility when I went on my own to get treatment for my addiction.

I actually don't know, at the time I just applied for the job and a couple of months later they called me in to interview then they made me take a drug test and then hired me after that. Nobody said anything to me about a background check. Although I'm pretty sure they did do one on me. If something bad shows up in the background check they may not say anything to you. In that case they may simply decide not to hire you depending on the nature of that "bad item".

In Iowa our store requires every conditional hired applicant to complete a consent for a background check through a company called First Advantage. They will not give us any access or info on the applicants results nor will they tell us what charges would disqualify a person. But I have seen applicants clear that told me they had an assault, DUI, possession of drugs and disorderly conduct. I have not seen anyone clear that told me they had charges like theft, child abuse, se% offenses and robbery. Hope this helps. -Human Resources TL
