Yes, they do. Even part time employees. I worked there for 5 years while in university and I lost my health insurance after my dad passed away. I was able to get coverage through Target and it was awesome coverage . . . and I was only part time (20 hrs/week, max). Now, when I left, they were changing their plans/providers so I'm not sure what the coverage is like now but a few years ago, they provided some of the best (if not *the* best) coverage in the retail sector.
Back to the OP, Target is deadly.
It's a good thing we don't have them up here in the Great White North b/c, yeah, our budget would be shot. DH dreads when we go down to the States to visit family b/c I always have to get in a "Target fix," as I say, and usually walk out at least $100 lighter in the pocket book.
My kids just got $50 in Target gift cards that I'm trying to figure out what to order for the kids online. They're seriously burning a hole in my pocket! I'm counting down the days until I get to step foot into a Target again . . . 29 to be exact.
The marketing is truly genius. My goal was, had I stayed States-side after getting my degree, was to make it into the marketing dept at Target HQ b/c I so admire their marketing strategies. They think everything out to the very last detail.
