How old do you have to be to work at Target? Target’s CEO has announced a new policy that could dramatically change the retail landscape. Under the new policy, all employees will be able to retire at 55 years old after working at Target for 15 years. Though this may seem like a significant change, it actually represents a larger shift in the industry. In fact, changing retirement ages for retail workers is becoming increasingly common as companies try to expand their workforces and keep up with demand for products. Below are the age requirements at Target. 

Employee Age Requirement at Target

Target is a large retail company that employs people of all ages. The age requirement for most positions at Target is 18 years old. This is because the company wants to ensure that its employees are responsible and able to handle the assigned tasks. There are some positions, however, that require employees to be 21 years old or older. These positions are usually in management or in departments that sell alcohol. The age requirement for these positions is in place because the company wants to make sure that its employees are old enough to handle the responsibilities of the position.

You must be at least 16 years old to work at Target.

If you want to work at Target, you’ll need to be 16 years old or older. If you’re under 18 and want to apply for a job at the store, you’ll need to get your parents’ permission first. There are several different jobs that people can do at Target, including cashier and stocker. You can also apply for part-time jobs in their customer service department and guest services division.

Besides, you also have to be a U.S citizen or permanent resident of the United States (or have an immigration status that allows alien registration) in order to work at Target. In addition, California law requires that all employees working in California temporarily reside within the state during their employment at the stores; this requirement applies regardless of whether the company operates outside California (e.,g., Amazon or Walmart). Finally, New York law requires all new hires within its borders have valid identification documents (such as driver’s license) with photo ID. 

You must be at least 18 years old to work as a truck driver at Target.

If you want to work as a truck driver at Target, you must be at least 18 years old. You must also be 21 years old in order to apply for the position of shift supervisor and 16 years old in order to work at Target.

You must be at least 21 years old to work as a Shift Supervisor at Target.

To work as a shift supervisor at Target, you must be at least 21 years old. If you’re between 18 and 20 years old and want to work as a truck driver, then you’ll need to be at least 16 years old before starting your training program.

If you’re over 21 but under 25 years old (or over 25 with no children), then there are still some restrictions:

  • You must have your GED or high school diploma in order for them to hire you as an associate/assistant cashier/checker/delivery driver/stocker or other position that requires minimal job skills (i.e., no college degree).
  • They do not hire anyone who has been convicted of any felony offense since their release from prison unless they maintain good standing with law enforcement agencies across the country; this applies even if those convictions occurred more than five years ago!

How much money can I make working at Target?

The average hourly pay for a cashier is $12 per hour. But this varies based on how many hours they work each week and how many shifts they schedule for each week. The minimum wage in California is $10 per hour as of July 1st 2018; however, if your employer offers benefits such as health insurance coverage or paid vacation days then those costs will be deducted from what remains after taxes are taken out (so it may actually end up costing less than advertised). If there’s no salary increase planned over time then making less than minimum wage may not even seem worth it!

Is working at Target really worth it? 

If you do decide that working at Target isn’t right for your career goals then there are plenty other options out there! Many people choose careers in retail because they enjoy interacting with customers or seeing new products come into their stores every day; this means that even if working hours aren’t ideal, there will still always be something exciting happening around each corner! Whatever type of job suits your personality best, we hope we have helped you decide whether or not working around people who like shopping would really make all that much difference in the long run anyway!

Conclusion

Target is a large retail company that employs people of all ages. The company has an age requirement of 18 years old for most positions, but there are some positions that require employees to be 21 years old or older. The age requirement for most positions is in place because the company wants to ensure that its employees are responsible and able to handle the tasks that they are assigned.

Target is a great company to work for, but if you want a career with short hours, low stress and lots of room for advancement then it may not be the right place for you. A lot of people think that they are going to be able to start working at Target at the age of 18 with no experience or education required – but this isn’t necessarily true. In fact, when applying for jobs at Target you need to have some kind of relevant experience and/or training before being allowed any more than an entry level position within the company.
