I am confused about why the Target Distribution Center in Newton, NC is still having job fairs. Last I heard they have had 15000 applicants and they can not find 500 qualified people? What kind of hiring practices do they have? They seem slightly flawed. Then I read where some people from out of state are getting jobs there. They get all there incentives and the county or state does not insist that they hire locally? Sounds a little bogus to me!

They want teeny boppers and other people who would be easier to control than people like myself who have been laid off from many of the local manufacturers. Don't waste your time with Target if you have years of experience in any field.

It just makes no sense to hire inexperienced people when so many experienced people are out of work and more than willing to do the job. Especially when they all start at the same pay. Well I am sure that enough of us are graduates and more than healthy enough to do a warehouse job.

Target seems to think differently.

I know that there are several experienced people that need work but there is also several people with no experience that need the chance too. They are new grads, house wives and others that due to the economy are now looking for work. I hope that they give everyone an honest chance at getting a job. Face it we may not like it or want to admit it but we all need help at one time or another. Maybe those that are experienced will be able to help those that ned trained.

If offered a job, you will be given a stress test that measures your heart rate while you lift a package and move it about. If your heart rate exceeds a particular number then you are NOT hired. I was told the number was 118 bpm.
you are wrong

My brother was hired recently and he is no teeny booper. He has been a business owner for 10 years and he was hired. He took the stress test as well, his bp was high so they had him see his physician (which he did) and the next week he performed the stress test and passed. He began taking meds for the bp. He loves it. Don't give up. Pay is really good as well as benefits. He works Sat, Sun and Mon from 6pm to 6am each week and can run his business the rest of the time.

I don't know where you got your information but my brother was hired and his is an overweight 40 yr old man with high bp. During his first stress test he failed. He got on meds, dr. signed off on him and re-took the stress test and passed. He was hired and loves it.
you are right

Have you ever realized that, "Hey, maybe there IS a better way of doing some things around here!"? I'd take work experience over blind sheeple any day of the week!

Well good for him. I applied for the asset protection job but never got a call, so screw them, I'm going back to school.

Sad but true: experienced people may be considered "over-qualified."

Go read some of the (well, damn near ALL of the) posts on this site http://www.thebreakroom.org/ by Target's VERY OWN EMPLOYEES... TARGET (apparently) SUX!
And to think that I thought they were "somewhat" better than Wal-Mart... Yeah Right!

Wear whatever the Hell you want! The "Reps" are a bunch of mindless (i.e. brainwashed) jellyfish, like on SpongeBob... Tell them your "code" name is really, "Patrick" or "Sandy", then they will hire you, no questions asked! I promise! Wear pink; they seem to like that color! If you are 18 and can spell your name, you are a shoe-in! They don't hire anyone with brainpower higher than a snail (like Gary).
