    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.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Target in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied Tuesday, April 2,2013, they called be back Wednesday to set up and interview that Thursday. I had both interviews that day.

    1st Interview: He brought me into a room and sat me down and went over my application. He asked me general interview questions,not very hard, like why do you wanna work for Target? and questions as such. I knew he liked me because he introduced me to the Cashier/Front End Manager.

    2nd Interview: After i spoke to the first manager he sat me in a room with a tv to watch a 10 min video about the company. It was a simple video, but you might wanna take notes because your second interview is based on it. One question was a reference to the video so WATCH IT PAY ATTENTION, don't get on you phone and text look at the smallest details to the video so they know you are serious. After the interview questions on the movie she said she would give me a call

    On Friday the Human Resource Manager called me for a 3rd interview this Monday i dont know what to expect but for them to drug test me.

    I applied online and they called me to schedule a phone interview. He asked how many hours I can work and any days I couldn't work. He also asked why I wanted to work at Target. There were alot of situational questions such as a time you went above and beyond expectaions, gave great customer service, and a time you had to work in a team. They called to schedule an in person interview two weeks later. I haven't gone to it yet. She told me to come 20 min early to do an assesment on a computer first.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, Got a call a couple of call a couple of days later. I went through a phone interview and passed it. Then I got interviewed and they told me that they told me they would call and I knew then that I didn't get the job. MAKE sure that you tell them that you are available open to close Fri-Sun. Even if you aren't you can always fix that later when they're scheduling you, because the REALLY want people who are available during those days. Wish i knew that then.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, a week or two later I was called and asked to schedule a phone interview. When they called the next week to do the interview, I was quickly informed they would need to reschedule the interview for the next week. After that interview finally happened, the interviewer made it seem like I had the job and said they would call me later that day to schedule an in-person interview. No call and two weeks later I receive an email saying I did not get the job. My entire experience with the company made them seem very unprofessional and made me hesitant to ever reapply. I was very unimpressed.

    I applied online – interviewed at Target in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I've applied online in October 2012. 2 days later I got an online assessment. On online assessment all questions were behavioral based like there were different scenarios and i had to choose my response according to that. In few question I had to choose both best and worst responses. I think that were the trickier part for me. After the submission of assessment I got an email to schedule for interview.
