Target does hire felons. I'm living proof of it I just got hired at the distribution center in tifton Georgia as long as your honest and put down every charge you were convicted of they weigh all that in consideration when deciding to clear your background. Also target does not run background checks them selves they use a 3rd party company called First Advantage

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.

Answered

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

Yes they do, you have to explain your record during the background check, also proof of any rehabilitation, certificate of relief, etc.
