Target is holding a job fair to fill 300 positions in their new Alameda store. Video by Michele Ellson.

Target kicked off a three-day job fair Thursday at the College of Alameda as part of an effort to hire 300 people to staff its new Alameda store, slated to open on October 13. The retailer scheduled close to 500 interviews over the three days for jobs ranging from cashiers and cart retrievers to fitting room attendants, security guards and supervisors (a spokesperson for the retailer said they don't provide specifics on pay and benefit packages). In addition to the scheduled interviews, Target representatives are accepting walk-ins between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. today and Saturday, and they said that people without scheduled interviews should come early to increase their chances of securing an interview. People interested in working for the local Target - a 140,000-square-foot store that will house a Starbucks and pharmacy and offer fresh grocery items among its wares - can also apply online.
