Interview Question – Why do you want to work at Target? View Answer
Negotiation Details – None. Take it or leave it
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in March 2012.
Interview Details – Two seperate interviews, one with a team leader, then the HR executive. Mainly asked the same questions i.e. past job experience, a time you "shined" in another job, most difficult work day, time when you worked as a team. Then the usual "what if" scenarios. Not much eye contact from the team lead on her end, lots of "mhmm's" but no real follow ups or detail interest. HR exe. showed more interest, very nice, always was.
Interview Question – None to specify, all general questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No real negotiating. They talked through the offer as if their was no negotiation. For working at Target i would suggest really reading your job responsibilities before signing so you clearly know what your job is.
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Target in August 2012.
Interview Details – I walked into Target and asked one of the first employees I saw that I was there for an interview (because I was not told who to ask for or where to go.) The first man I talked to was very professional and had me take an online assessment.
After that I had to wait for someone else to come speak to me. 5 minutes later, the Team Leader came out to interview me in the back. He was not quite as professional as the first guy, with his untucked, dirty-looking shirt, but other than that he was nice and direct. But he was disorganized, unfortunately.
After searching for about 5 minutes for an interview instruction sheet, we proceeded to another room to begin the interview. I felt confident enough in my answers, but I had to be interviewed again by another man, who was much more professional and articulate: the manager. Of course, this made me nervous, because he ended up asking some of the same questions, but told me to be much more specific and ask for different answers. Anyway, during the interview he was humorous and easy to speak to, which made the process a bit easier.
Overall, the experience went well, I enjoyed speaking to everyone I met. The overall people who worked at atmosphere were very nice.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Target in April 2010.
Interview Details – Easy as pie. Applied online, got an email arranging an interview, had to pee in a cup (though I had to go the next day to this, as when I had finished interviewing the place that does the testing for them was about to close), then a few days later was called to be told I was hired and to come in for orientation.
Interview Question – Give me an example of a hurdle you have had to overcome in your life and how you handled it. Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – I just lost my job a target and i would sometimes be part of the interview process so I will let you know the inside scoop.
You will have to pass 2 interview, one on phone and one in person I have the EXACT questions for the first interview. I wouldn't do 2nd interviews so i dont have those questions.
Each of questions requires a 3 part answer (an exact situation, your behavior aka what you did, and the outcome)
1.Tell me about a time you were part of a team or group that accomplished it goal.
A great answer to this question would be, I was part of a XX team(situation) that won the championship(outcome) by lots of practice (more than what was necessary) and team work(behavior).
2.Tell me about a time that you had multiple things to do in a short period of time, how did you manage the situation
A great answer to this question would be, going back to when I was in XX team I was also in school/worked(situation) I would have to prioritize(behavior) to ensure I was able to get in my necessary practice while keeping up with my grades/work(outcome).
3.Tell me about a time that you exceeded another persons expectations.
A great answer would be, One time while working at xx(situation) I was asked by a customer where they could find the cards and instead of point them in the direction I walked her over(behavior) and by asking her more questions was able to find out she needed a birthday card. So I reminded her not to forget the birthday candles. She was pleasantly surprised at how helpful I was and thanked me for being a great help(outcome).
