Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target (Bessemer, AL) in February 2015.

Interview

Applied on line, received a call back about 2 weeks later. Went to store for first and second interview (each interview approx. 25 minutes - 30 minute wait between interviews). During both interviews I was asked at least four "S.T.A.R" questions, along with the ice breaker "Tell me why you want to work for Target?" Position was entry level. No negotiation available for starting pay ($7.40 hour). Hours would be scheduled 2 weeks in advance and would change regularly, but most likely would include all weekends, plus a day or two during the week.

Interview Questions

  • Describe the situation that you were in where you needed to accomplish a team goal. Describe the action you took to meet the goal. Describe the result of that action.   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

I prefer a part-time job with regularly scheduled hours.

    Applied the night before and got a call back the next morning. Total of three interviews... Yeah I know, Ridiculous! Went through the first two interviews but wasn't hired in the end. Such a waste of my time.The hiring managers were very nice and friendly though. They emailed me about a week later saying that try couldn't offer me the job, but thanks for my interest. Never again!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target (Toledo, OH).

    Interview

    I applied online, which included a lengthy questionnaire. After I had a very basic phone interview about customer service experience I was asked to come in and interview in-store. The store team-lead himself ended up interviewing me instead of who was supposed to do so. He actively sought to upset me in the interview and asked a lot of hypothetical questions about difficult situations with customers. He also threw around a lot of numbers which he said backed up his assertions. Then five minutes later he would argue from the completely opposite spectrum.

    Interview Questions

    • There were quite a few hypothetical situations, the worst was one about a guest who actively tried to pay 2 dollars less for an item and how much money it would lose the store if you gave her 2 dollars off an item or if you made her pay the full amount. The situation was taken way to the extreme, including giving everyone off two dollars and how social media plays a role in commerce.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Slow took four hours
    I hated the process they seemed not to care about my time and cared more about running what they had to. They did apologize but, just made us wait even longer after the next step of the process. The one interview was very nice but she was just as slow.

    I applied online – interviewed at Target (Flatbush, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Came into target two wednesdays ago and asked a cashier if they were hiring. He told me yes and that it would be good for someone with zero experience like myself. So i applied the next day and got a call back that sunday to schedule a phone interview for that tuesday. They called me about a hour or so late and apologized for the tardiness. The interview was about five questions and they told me that i would get a call in the next two days. They ended up calling later that day to tell me i did a great job and to schedule a second interview. We scheduled it for today (wednesday) and I ended getting the job! Very fast and smooth process overall. Im 21 and have no experience so if anyone else is in my situation target is a good place to start off at. Confidence is key!

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Target in March 2014.

    Interview

    I did an application online and a month or so went by without a word so I started going into the store and each time I was lucky and was able to talk the same manager. She eventually wrote my name down to be called for the phone interview, and about a couple weeks later I got a call. I prepared for the phone interview by browsing Glassdoor because all of the questions were on here. I did the phone interview very well, but unfortunately there were other people more experienced than me so I didnt make it to the second interview.
