Guest Service Attendant Interview

Guest Service Attendant
Gaithersburg, MD

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in May 2010.

Interview Details – Applied at computer in the store. Had one interview with a supervisor. The interview lasted about 10 to 15 minutes. Mostly questions about how you work with people and if you can handle a fast paced environment. Then basic questions about availability and the shifts you are willing to work. Pretty easy interview.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – You must complete an online application and then a phone interview. After that, you are brought in for an in-store interview. It was quite quick, maybe 20 minutes. If you remember nothing else to say on your interview, remember to go above and beyond for the customer to ensure a satisfactory guest experience. Target truly does care about the guest above all else and they have policies in place to ensure that guests have a pleasant experience.

Interview Question – They asked hypotheticals such as, "What would you do if a customer asked if an item was in stock?" (Not an actual question just a practical example)   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Cannot negotiate. I started at $7.75 (25 cents above minimum wage at the time). After that I was given a 6-month merit pay raise of a measly 6 cents to bring it to $7.81/hour. When NY increased their minimum wage and because I had been working for a year, my wage increased to $8.25 an hour.

Sales Attendant, Cart Attendant, Cashier Interview

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.

Flatbush, NY

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!

Interview Question – Why do you want to work at target?
Tell me a time you helped someone but made a mistake?
What would you do if a guest came up to you and told you that the price you charged them is wrong?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They told me about the job and how I will most likely work other positions along with casheir. They offered 9.50 which was a dollar fifty more than i expected.

Interview Details – All applications can be found at target.com/careers. Some stores might have paper copies of applications, but it's becoming rare. Your first contact with Target will be a phone call from the HR rep at the store you applied. He or she will set up an interview team either in person or on the phone. You will go through two interviews if they like you and you will be hired.

Interview Question – "Describe one time that you (as a worker) had to fight for something in the workplace."   View Answer

Sales Attendant, Cart Attendant, Cashier
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.

Guest Services Attendant Interview

Guest Services Attendant
Emeryville, CA

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
