    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a application online, called twice within a weeks time to ask for an interview, no response. Following week got called to come in for an interview. Ended up being a event where they were interviewing a lot of people. Got interviewed twice by two different employees and offered a job on the spot.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too unexpected, they ask the normal 'tell me about a time, ect'. But also asked a scenario about what to do if someone was unable to find an item. Obvious answer was call some to check back room, not available offer to call another store or have item bought online.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation really. Explained what days and times wouldn't be available and they were very flexible.

    Interview Details

    Detailed Online Application. Got a call a few days later. They bring you in and interview you with one of the store managers and the team lead who would be in charge of the section they're hiring you for. The interview itself only takes about 30 minutes. They ask standard questions about why you want to work there and how you would be an asset to the team.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Made the application online and they called back in about 3 days, they set up and interview and I went. They had me sit in the lunch break room with a few other people that had already been interviewed a few minutes later the HR person came out and told they would be called back if they were needed. Then I was called up and they asked me what position I was most interested and I said their food avenue. Thy asked me "How would you handle x" and "In this situation" type questions. I also told them I had experience in food and restaurant through high school, and was hired right then and there without a 2nd interview. Note this was also my first interview and first job, just answer as truthfully as you can and list whatever experience you had and it will go great.

    Food Service Team Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Target in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I sent in an online application, and within ten minutes, a lady had called me and set up a phone interview for the next day.
    The guy I spoke to was the team leader for the area, and he wasn't a very good interviewer.
    He asked why I wanted to work at Target and I said usual stuff and then said how it would be a good first job, and he apparently ignored that. About five minutes later he asked about previous work experience so I had to tell him I had none, and he asked "Oh it's your first job?" ...Yeah kinda.
    Then he would get distracted with stuff. He told me he was scared by the ongoing thunderstorm, and then got off topic when I gave him a detailed response about working at the humane society. I didn't even get a call back or an email until three weeks later saying how they weren't hiring at the time.
