Much-Anticipated South Coast Target Store Hosts Hiring Fair Prior To Opening


While some companies are ramping up slowly on the South Coast, retailer Target is hoping to hire about 320 workers immediately.

Those new hires would go to fill a wide variety of positions in their new large-scale Goleta store.

That store is replacing a K-Mart on Hollister Avenue.

The store has been highly anticipated for years, as customers asked elected officials and landowners to find a place for the area's first full-size Target.

Hiring is taking place across the street at meeting rooms in the Hilton Hotel.

Target says it has part-time and full-time work for employees of all stripes, with pay starting at $13 to $18 hourly.

The retailer says the work is a perfect opportunity for students, those looking for a second job, and others who have a short work day availability due to family needs.

The new Target store is slated to open on October 20.
