Sales Attendant, Cart Attendant, Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
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.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online. Target reached out about two months later. Had an initial phone interview with HR & then met in person with a team leader. Phone interview they asked basic questions (why do you want to work for Target?). I got about 5-6 questions total. Same thing with the in-person interview. All pretty straightforward. I actually did horrible on the phone interview but still got the in-person interview, which went much better.

Interview Question – Tell us a time you went above & beyond for someone (anyone).   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Better offer elsewhere

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in January 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call after about 3 weeks for an initial phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 10 minutes, after which we set up an in-store interview later in the week. I came in and was asked to wait in the Target Cafe for the team lead to come interview me. It took her at least 45 minutes to get out there. The interview took about 15.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you missed a deadline? What was the situation, what actions did you take, and what was the outcome?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate and took the offered wage.

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Target in November 2012.

Interview Details – Applied in the store kiosk. Two days after I submitted the application, I got a call for an over the phone interview. Once that was over, about 2 days later, I got a call to have an in-person interview. After the successful in-person interview, I was asked to take a drug test, which I was told would take only 2 days to analyse. 7 Days later, I got a call saying that the results came back negative and I was given the job.

Interview Question – Where did you find yourself in a situation in which you had to overcome an obstacle by yourself.   Answer Question

I applied online and interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – I submitted my application and was interviewed afterwards. Their drug test was incorrect and my job offer was rescinded. However, after they tested it again, it was 'poppy-seeds' that screwed the whole thing up

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

Interview Details – I filled out an online application and shortly after recieved a call to schedule an interview. I came to the location and found myself among around 20 other applicants. After sitting in the waiting room for 3 hours and watching the short training video on loop, I was called into the interview room. The interview was short (maybe 5 minutes) and had the standard interview questions. They said I passed and I would be meeting with the manager, so once again I sat in the waiting room for another hour. After thge second interview, I recieved my conditional job offer, which is basically dependant on a drug test that must be administered within 24 hours of the job offer. By the way, starting pay is only $8.25.

Interview Question – Name a time where you showed exceptional customer service.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I recieved a better offer from another company.
