Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

Interview

It was a two part interview. First it was a phone interview which was very basic. Then an in store interview. When i got there they took me to the back room where there were two ppl interviewing me. They asked why work for target. Explain teamork and other basic questions.Pretty easy but I was super nerveous.

    Interview

    I was called in for and interview after applying online. They had forgotten that I was coming and I had to wait 45 minutes for the interview. I was interviewed by two people that asked me very similar questions. They told me they would call in 3-4 days about a hiring decision. Two weeks later I received an e-mail saying I was not going to be hired. They were very unresponsive and clearly we very uninterested in me.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Very quick to reply after sending in the application. The application itself is very detailed and long, but since it is all online, it was easy to take a few minutes to finish it or go back and finish if you did not have time to do it all at once. The first interview was done over the phone, also very quick and straightforward. The second interview is done in person.

    Interview

    i applied online, called me a couple weeks later. interview was a couple days after that. first i talked to the customer service woman who got the hiring manager and also urged me to apply for a target card cause it looked good to do so. then they sent me to a computer where i took the same questionnaire as when i applied. then i was taken to a back room to have the interview. the woman was not very personable and barely looked at me. her questions were easy enough and i had prepared for them but admitting i was shy prompted her to ask something like "how would you handle getting two customers a day to apply for a target card" and my immediate reaction was "2 a day whoa really" which probably cost me the job!

    Interview

    Got a call after applying online, they gave me a phone interview, asking basic questions like why i want to work for target, personal experiences, adn a few scenario questions. i was told what to expect during the in person interview then given an interview date. i went in a few days later, and was brought in to a room. the lady interviewing basically asked the same questions, but in more detail. then after i was told i would get a call or an email. i heard nothing. (i apparently failed my first interview)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview

    First of all before they officially interviewed me thy asked me have I saw "The video" I said "no". From then on they proceeded to leave me in a room to watch a video of the position I was applying for. No test, No quiz, just a simple video of the position I was applying for. After the video was finished they brought me back out to start the Interview. I was only asked three questions and they were all team based questions. I have little background knowledge of working with other people because I mostly do my work solo and Ultimatly bombed the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and initially was sent an email saying they could not offer me a job at that time. A day or so later I got a call asking me to come in for an interview. When I showed up people were not very welcoming, but the woman interviewing me was nice and I felt the interview went well. Maybe five days later I got the same email from them saying they could not offer me any position at that time, so I followed up. I was told they decided to go with someone who better fit their needs. My overall experience with them was pretty confusing and it was very unclear what exactly they were looking for in an employee.
