Store leaders will hold both pre-scheduled and walk-in interviews with applicants.

Small-format stores serve customers in urban areas, dense suburban neighborhoods and near college campuses, where a full-size store wouldn’t fit.

The new U-District store will offer an assortment of food and beverage items, beauty products, clothing and portable technology products.

Target said it offers employees various education benefits, such as tuition and GED reimbursement.
