Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Target in October 2013.

Interview Details

I was contacted by phone from a very friendly person for an interview. When I went in the person at the customer return desk excitedly said "you may be working with us". Every one was very friendly and relaxed.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got a call maybe a week later, which went to voicemail. The woman spoke so fast I had to the listen to the message 7 times to figure out who she was and where she was calling from and what the number to call back was. I finally figured it out, called back, and I had a sort-of interview - partly I was just clarifying some information on my application (my work experience, my availability), and there was just a couple really basic interview questions.

    At the end she said she'd contact me in a couple days in order to set up an actual interview.
    Then two days later I got an email saying there were no positions available.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Target in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Just a few days after filling out Target's lengthy online application, a representative of the store called me to schedule an interview. They only ask a few questions, at least for the more basic positions, but the interviewer was visibly displeased when I mentioned that I only had a single semester of school left before graduating. I doubt that they would be too eager to hire someone that was unlikely to stick around after graduation.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was called 4 days later and scheduled a phone interview for the next day. Phone interview was basic questions about past work experience and how I handle customer service. Scheduled an in person interview for the next day. Consisted of a short interview with the same questions from the phone interview with a manager then watched an employee video. Had a second interview with another manager and was asked what intrigued me most about the video and about working at Target. She told me I would receive a phone call if I am hired and an email if not.
