    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target (Tyler, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process took a whole month. I never applied to work for Target, I was contacted out of the blue for a position. I spoke with the recruiter about 5 times in interview form, after several weeks of this and preparing for the onsite interview, I finally was on campus. There was a 45 minute tour of the plant, 10 minute presentation, then the interviews began. I was interviewed by two individuals, after awhile I could tell the man wasn't interested in me, he began to sit back in his chair, no longer engaged in the conversation and just spatting out questions and continuously looking at his watch. The lady continued to be engaged. Once that interview was complete, I was on to the next one. Again another man that was not engaged in the interview and glancing at his computer frequently, even admitted that he hadn't had a chance to review my resume. At the end of the day, I pretty much knew that I wouldn't receive an offer, reading the body language of the interviewers and the fact that one interviewer hadn't even taken the time to review my resume.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had a 15 minute interview with a member of human resources. The questions weren't all that difficult when you know what they are asking. Why target? Tell me about yourself? What was an accomplishment that you had at your last job? From the time I applied, had the interview, and got rejected the process took about a month. The interview went well. Unfortunately, they just decided to go another route. I applied again. I am confident I can do this job with one hand tied behind my back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    For those preparing for the phone interview, it is really simple. Expect "tell me a little about yourself", 3 behavioral questions, followed by a time for you to ask your own questions. The recruiter was extremely nice and will give you advice on how you sounded over the phone. Be prepared for follow up questions after you answer the original behavioral question.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in May 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email from a Target recruiter and set up a phone interview for about ten days later. Some generic leadership questions and then some situational questions with use of the STAR format for answering. I was then sent an email with a link to fill out some personal data on the Target site and take an assessment test. The assessment test consisted of reasoning questions (fairly difficult) and situational scenarios with multiple choice answers. I have a physical interview scheduled in the next couple of days and will update my posting at that time.

    Interview Questions

    • Just have some STAR formatted answers in your mind and should be fine for that part. The most difficult part so far were the reasoning questions on the assessment test.   Answer Question
