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.

If six hours or more one lunch you work 5 hours or less you get one fifteen minute break. If you work more than five hours it's one lunch (30 minute unpaid), and one fifteen minute break, seven or more hours is one break, one lunch and then another break. It's usually around every two or two and a half hours a break occurs.
