Cashier Interview

Cashier
Orland Park, IL

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Target in March 2010.

Interview Details – I had 3 interviews. One with the first manager was easy. She was nice. Regular interview questions. The next interview with the higher ranking manager was a little harder. She seemed a bit cold. Asked about previous work history and career goals. Last interview wasn't really an interview. The store manager made me feel like I was already hired by telling me rules and different things about the company.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Minimum wage hourly position

Group Leader Interview

Group Leader
DeKalb, IL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in December 2010.

Interview Details – Fill out an online application and complete a test. If you pass, then the recruiter will set you up with the details for the interview. You will do three separate interviews, each lasting 45 minutes. They will be with Senior Group Leaders, as well as the GM. All questions are behavior-based questions, so use the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action and Result) for them. After the interviews are complete, you'll get a short guided tour of the distribution center from another Group Leader. You should hear something in a week from the recruiter.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult co-worker. How did you approach that person?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate, but they offered me above my old salary and it was a reasonable offer.

TPS Or Hardlines Interview

TPS Or Hardlines
Chicago, IL

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – First i received a phone interview which lasted about 10 minutes. The person was very friendly and out going. Usually they will ask you questions from their paper work. here are the questions they asked through the phone interview so you can practice them :)
-Tell me a time when you went above and beyond to complete a task?
-Tell me a project that you had to do?
-Tell me a time where you had lots of things to do at the same time and how did you handle it?
-Tell me your biggest accomplishment?
-Streghts and weaknesses?
-Why target?
i applied for TPS but got a job offered for hardlines/cashier. I really wanted to be tps but the guy who was incharge of hiring the new tps ,hired someone from his own race ( not fair a know but thats life)

After that interview they will call you for another interview ,this time the AP "manager" is the one who makes you the interview in person. He was a cool person ,however, he dicided to hire some one his own race which sucked.
He basically asked the same questions that the person in the phone interview asked you. What would you do if a customer doesnt find a size pair of shoes she wants? what will you do?

after that they will call you for a job offer which they set a date for you to go to the store again and dicuss your wage .Then you get called to go for orentation which lasts about 4 hrs. Then they train you for 2 weeks.

Interview Question – Tell me a project that you had to do?
tell me about yourself
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – i was suppose to get a job offered for TPS but ended up getting an offer for hardlines.

Sales Floor Team Member Interview

Sales Floor Team Member
Villa Park, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Target in October 2012.

Interview Details – First a phone interview. When you pass the phone interview you get an in-person interview at the store. I interviewed with 2 leads the same day and got hired. Then you have a few hours of orientation for your first day.

On the phone interview they mostly want to see what your availability will be. They told me that if I was available 7 days a week they would hire me. Then after you are done with your 90 day probation period you can change the availability if you want.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work at Target?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. I had to have availability 7 days a week, and I started out with $8.25 an hour, which I believe is minimum wage.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Norridge, IL

I applied in-person - interviewed at Target in September 2010.

Interview Details – It took 3 weeks to get a job that pays $8.25 an hour. You must have an open schedule for them to give you any hours more than 15. You may or may not get the hours unless you are available to work over nights and week ends.

Interview Question – Open availability, any restrictions will prevent them offering you a position. They like people with degrees for team leads, but don't pay very well for the experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was looking to be a Team Lead, took the job with possible chance to be promoted.
They don't always follow through on there promises.
