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!

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    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.   View Answer

    I applied online – interviewed at Target in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    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!

    I applied online – interviewed at Target in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    interviewed at Target in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    it was pretty quick. You pretty much go through 3 interviews and if you pass all 3 you got the job. The last person you speak to provides you with all the necessary information to get started. Afterwards they give you 24 hours to pass a drug test and that will determine your employmnt.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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.
