Q:

Does Target hire felons?

A:

Target hires felons to work in its stores and in its corporate headquarters as of 2014. In fact, the company does not include questions on its job application about a person's criminal background.

In 2013, Target started removing questions about a person's criminal background from some of its applications. In spring 2014, it applied the change to the company as a whole. However, the company maintains its right to run a background check on applicants, to keep stores safe and to protect its property. Even if a background check turns up an applicant's criminal history, Target doesn't disqualify that person for employment, according to a Target spokesperson.
