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

Report answer

In 2013, Target started removing questions about a person's criminal background from some of its applications. In spring 2014, it applied the change to the company as a whole. However, the company maintains its right to run a background check on applicants, to keep stores safe and to protect its property. Even if a background check turns up an applicant's criminal history, Target doesn't disqualify that person for employment, according to a Target spokesperson.
