    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Relatively easy when you're going for a team member position. Definitely take you if you know how to count from 1-1000. Team members drop like fly's, so many people can get hired especially during the holidays.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    So, first of all I applied 10/16 and got a call literally out of nowhere 11/19! So be patient for them to call you. I than spent the next two hours practicing interview questions (Youtube and Glassdoor) and than I arrived at target 15 minutes early before my interview. I went to the guest service area and the person directed me to the assessment computers. After I finished that, he told me to go wait in the cafe for someone to call me in. I waited maybe 10-15 minutes, and my interviewer directed me to a room. He interview me for maybe 10 minutes, and told me to wait for a second interviewer. She came and same process. She told me to wait again and came back within 5 minutes and told me I was offered a job/postion! yay!

    Cafe Team Member - Food Service Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was easy. I applied online and within 2-3 days they called me to have the interview the next day. I wasn't dressed work attire appropriately because I didn't have enough time to go buy some slacks and shoes between the time when they called me and the interview so I had to work with what I had. I had on a nice blouse, dark wash denim jeans, and riding boots. When it came time for the interview I had no actual work experience, just volunteer experience. I went into Target 15 minutes before the time of my interview and went to costumer service to tell them I had an interview. They took me up to this room with other people and we had to watch a short movie on how employees should act around customers and the certain jobs they do. After they called me in to another room and I shook hands with the 2 people that were interviewing me. They went over my availability and they asked me a series of questions. Why do you want to work at Target?(I said because I have to pay for college tuition and every one is friendly and ready to help and I felt I could contribute to that. I probably shouldn't have mentioned the tuition part) What was the position you applied for (food service)? Describe a task you had to do similar to the job you applied for? (I helped serve food at the fair) Name a time when you worked in a team and what was the out come? ( I talked about how I was on a basketball team for 9 years and how we made it to championships) Are you able to work other areas than the job you applied for (it was a yes or no question, I said yes). After that they asked if I had any questions and I just said if they needed a resume`. They said they had to interview more people and if I was the right candidate they would let me know and I thanked them and left. Then 2 days later I received an email saying I didn't get it.

    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.

    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.
