WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - Target is hosting job fairs on Friday and Saturday to fill over 100 positions at new stores expected to open later this year in Washington, D.C. and Montgomery County.
The company says the new small-format stores are scheduled to open on April 7, 2019 and will be located at 3505 Connecticut Avenue in Northwest, D.C. across from the Cleveland Park Metro stop and at 7828 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring.
The Cleveland Park Job Fair will be held on Friday, February 8 and Saturday, February 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Omni Shoreham Hotel at 2500 Calvert Street in Northwest, D.C. The Silver Spring Job Fair will be held on Friday, February 8 and Saturday, February 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Cultural Arts Center at 7995 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring.
Target says the smaller stores are designed for neighborhoods where full sized stores wouldn't fit. "As we expand our presence across D.C., we also remain committed to providing meaningful opportunities for team members to build and develop valuable career skills," said Jason Ramey, Target's D.C. district team leader in a statement.
The company says it offers competitive wages and various education benefits such as tuition and GED reimbursement. Target says interested candidates are encouraged to visit Target.com/careers to apply in advance of the job fairs or to apply in person where store leaders will conduct interviews.
