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.

Does Target do background checks?

Answered

Report answer

As far as I have heard, Target does not discriminate against hiring felons.

Report answer

Target is one of the major pioneers of the "Ban the Box" movement trying to make it a law that employers cannot ask about felonies on application, so yes they do hire felons, but they will still do a background check, so don't expect to get hired with an attempted murder, armed robbery, or numerous domestics
