    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target (Tyler, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process took a whole month. I never applied to work for Target, I was contacted out of the blue for a position. I spoke with the recruiter about 5 times in interview form, after several weeks of this and preparing for the onsite interview, I finally was on campus. There was a 45 minute tour of the plant, 10 minute presentation, then the interviews began. I was interviewed by two individuals, after awhile I could tell the man wasn't interested in me, he began to sit back in his chair, no longer engaged in the conversation and just spatting out questions and continuously looking at his watch. The lady continued to be engaged. Once that interview was complete, I was on to the next one. Again another man that was not engaged in the interview and glancing at his computer frequently, even admitted that he hadn't had a chance to review my resume. At the end of the day, I pretty much knew that I wouldn't receive an offer, reading the body language of the interviewers and the fact that one interviewer hadn't even taken the time to review my resume.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had a 15 minute interview with a member of human resources. The questions weren't all that difficult when you know what they are asking. Why target? Tell me about yourself? What was an accomplishment that you had at your last job? From the time I applied, had the interview, and got rejected the process took about a month. The interview went well. Unfortunately, they just decided to go another route. I applied again. I am confident I can do this job with one hand tied behind my back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    For those preparing for the phone interview, it is really simple. Expect "tell me a little about yourself", 3 behavioral questions, followed by a time for you to ask your own questions. The recruiter was extremely nice and will give you advice on how you sounded over the phone. Be prepared for follow up questions after you answer the original behavioral question.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Met the recruiters at a college career fair, they were both very easy to talk to and nice. I had an interview on campus. Pretty basic interview, they asked you to tell them a little about yourself and then three behavior based questions (tell me about a time....). They made you feel very comfortable during the whole process. Really seems like a fun and good company to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • Not super difficult but they asked to tell them about a time you disagreed with a colleague/classmate and how you handled the situation. Use the STAR method to answer all questions.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview

    On campus interview. Very friendly staff, made the process enjoyable. Allowed me to give my pitch in the beginning, then asked me a series of behavioral questions. The best way to prepare for this is to have answers to 5-10 different behavioral questions, and fit and size them as needed during the interview.
