Interview Details

Phone interview then face to face interview and hired at that time. I sat in the office and went through different scenarios and how I would handle them. Then we talked about a few opportunities available and also that this was seasonal and no guarantee that it would turn into a regular position.

    I applied online – interviewed at Target in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    A lot easier than I thought it was going to be! Straight forward questions, easy conversation. Lasted about 20-30 minutes? Including the kiosk questions and waiting for the actual interview to start. In the end, I was offered a job on the spot :)

    Very easy interview process, first and second interview with team leaders and ETLs. Most people who work at Target are very amiable and make sure you know what you're doing in the position.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Target called me and asked me when a good time to be interviewed was. They took this into account, and interviewed me on my own time. When you walk in, you may have to wait a few minutes before your interview. You also may be interviewed by a number of people. (I was interviewed by a man and two women of different ages). The first two were reviewing my online application, making sure they didn't miss any details, and both asked me the same questions. THe third person talked to me about my schedule. They will ask questions about how well you work in a group, the most difficult part about work/school that you've ever had to deal with and the easiest.
    You will have to be on the phone. You do not have to speak necessarily, and may only have to type on the keypad of the phone.

    I had to make sure my hours were as open and flexible as possible, especially as a temporary worker. I asked for the maximum amount of hours I was willing to work per week. I also had to make sure they knew that I had to take public transportation and carpooling was not an option all the time.

    Interview Details

    I put in an application online on a Friday. Got a phone call on a Monday. She asked me about my availability and etc. She then set up a phone interview for that Thursday. It went extremely well. The lead then said she would recommend me for a second interview. I got a call from someone else to schedule a face to face interview. The guy who interviewed me was wonderful. He was so fun to talk to. He asked me questions like "Name a time when..." Etc. Then he said he would reference me to STL? i think that was his name. I already knew I had the job though because the first guy, the ETL loved me. The STL...or STO...or whatever didn't even really ask me many questions. He said"Tell me about yourself." And other questions that I will put below. Overall, it was a breeze....the other employees were also fun and sweet. Don't be nervous! Thanks to Glassdoor, I did extremely well.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, went in to check on the status of application. Given interview next day were i was asked very basic interview questions. Mostly situation questions. What you would do if certain things happened. Only downside was that I had to wait very long for my second interviewer, and I could hear her talking to a coworker in the back.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was taken aback by my interviewers. First the guy did not have me down for the right job. Thought i was interviewing for the flow team. I did not apply to that position. Than asked their behavioral questions they asked everyone who interviews. It was a packet with questions. Than their were two more interviews. The second was unprofessional as they tried to push their credit card and app on me.I am glad I was not offered the position as the management team turned me off of target. I will not even shop their now as i see how they think about possible hires.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in early September and received a phone call asking if I was still interested in the job on October 8th. The initial phone call was to confirm my initial information that was given(i.e. position I applied for, salary details, etc.). After confirming that I was still interested in the job they sent up the phone interview for the next day at 11 am and had me call up a 1-800 number to confirm information about the store location, position applied for, as well as my social security number. The next morning I received a phone call from them about 45 minutes late and the interviewer apologized for the delay. I was asked three behavioral questions such as "tell me a time you did something for someone without expecting anything in return" as well as "Why do you want to work for target". Interview itself was very easy and you shouldn't have to worry about them asking any really hard questions. After the interview, I was informed that they would forward my information to HR and that I would be notified about a decision within the next few days. Three days later I received an email stating that they were unable to offer me a position at this time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    The interview was relatively laid back, although I did have to sit through the questions of multiple members of management (this may have been because they wanted to see if I would be available to work in inventory and receiving, but it was still a little nerve-wracking being questioned by multiple people at once!) Since I was well qualified I was ushered right out the door to take a drug test and offered a position the same day. The process was very expedient and everything was explained in detail to me. Since a more lucrative offer cropped up elsewhere, I ended up declining the offer, but had I accepted I would have gone through an orientation training and then I'd be on the schedule within the next week/week and a half.

    Interview Questions
    • To be honest they didn't really throw any curve balls. Just the usual "What do you do if you have a difficult customer?" and "Someone is stealing from the company, what do you do?" As long as you've been to this sort of rodeo before you'll do just fine. Just take a deep breath and say what you think is right for the situation.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I got a better offer elsewhere.
