    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Target in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview and then asked to wait for a call from HR to schedule 1 on 1 interview. HR called and we set up date for interview in a couple days. Was told to come in and finish assessment before I went in for interview. Showed up 30 min early to do assessment before interview. Went in and talked to lady at front desk who took me to a room to watch a video that was about 6-10 min long. After the video I went into a different room and talked to the store team leader.

    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.
