    The hiring and interview process was great, if one person isn't sure they will have you talk to several different people. The questions are pretty much the same wherever you go.

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on a Tuesday, and got called a few hours later to schedule an interview for the next day, Wednesday. However, I couldn't make it to the Wednesday interview and scheduled it for Friday morning instead. When I walked into Target, I was required to do a questionnaire. After that, I told them I was finished, and I was directed to go upstairs. I had 2 interviews right after another, the first with the head of cashiers, 2nd with someone who was a little higher in management rank. Before the 1st interview, between the two interviews, and after the 2nd, I was asked to wait in the break room, which I did. While I was in the break room I was able to talk to some current employees who were all very nice. As I was waiting after the 2nd, someone from HR told me that I'd be called in a couple days for notification of if I got the job or not, because they have to compare all the applications. Overall, a good experience. But after reading many reviews on this website, it seems that the people who did get the job, got hired on the spot.

    Interview Questions
    • They were all pretty straightforward questions. Why Target, strengths and weaknesses, when you exceeded expectations, when you made a mistake/what was the solution, and then some situational questions. The two interviews had identical beginning questions, but the situational questions were a bit different.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Applied online - had in store interview. Had to of waited over an hour, was asked if I was on food stamps or disabled vet, family assistance and if so I might be hired a lot faster than someone who has years of CS and cashiering experience, dresses decent and speaks well. Why? Because Target gets tax credits for hiring people who are struggling and need a job to feed themselves or their families....and so can still offer them $8.00 hour or less knowing this and also give a .11cent raise every year for their service.
    Regretted my application submission immediately.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you mind standing, bending and lifting for 8 hours straight a day for $8hr...or what about the nasty rude customers you will encounter on a daily basis. How about the part-time no benefit package we have for you?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Got to watch a new video they have on each of the department positions and basically stated in each one how much of a workout one will get so you won't need to go to the gym....so basically you'll get a real a8s working wherever you're placed for the low wages they offer.

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

    Interview Details

    I applied on Friday and received a call, which was a mini interview it seemed like. I was scheduled for an in person interview on Monday. I went in and everyone was extremely nice. I first interviewed with Sales Floor Team Leader. She was extremely nice and relatable so the interview seemed more like a conversation. She asked me to tell her about myself, why I wanted to work for Target, basic interview questions. She was really pleased with my answers and so she took me back to the break room and had someone set me up to watch a video. After the video, I had another interview with an ETL who was also extremely nice. Basically asked me the same questions along with a few behavior questions. Just watch the video and pay attention and you'll do fine. After, I was hired on the spot and went to go do my drug testing.

    Guest Service Team Member - Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was simple. Just the basic retail interview. For example, 'why do you want to work at Target', 'why did you choose to apply for a cashier', 'where do you see yourself with Target in 5 years'. And then there's the basic job interview where they ask, 'tell me about a time you were frustrated with another employee and how did you deal with it', and the 'tell me about the time you went above and beyond and how did it affect you' type thing. They don't really mind of what you're wearing, just don't be wearing anything provocative or anything that will get you in trouble. After that, I got a call about 30 minutes later saying I was hired and needed to do a background check and a drug test. Then after that, got another call a week or two later saying I passed the tests and needed to come to orientation. (;
