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.

Interview Question – I found all the questions on here   Answer Question

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!

Champaign, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in May 2012.

Interview Details – Talked to the HR person about general availability and had to take a computer test on basic math (if they need x amount of something, how many packs of y should they buy etc.). She asked about prior jobs and if I would accept to their drug and alcohol policy. Maybe asked about prior convictions, but maybe this was only on the online portion of the application.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for Target? Tell me your biggest weakness.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – They wanted someone to work past summer and into fall when I would be leaving for school.

Bethel, CT

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.

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
