    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Several rounds of interviews at college campus and on-site at a Target location. First a recruiter gives you a call and you do a quick phone interview that typically lasts around 15 minutes. Next, you go in person to interview with a current Target Team Leader who asks you lots of case-style questions. Finally, you interview on-site with another Target executive. At least this is how it all happened for me.

    Interview Questions

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I connected with my campus recruiter. Had an interview on campus that were all behavioral questions and then had a second round interview at a store with a manager then received a call 2 weeks later. When you receive a call you must take a local drug test within 48 hours. To complete the process you must apply online and take an analytical and personality test.

    Executive Team Leader Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I was an internal hire so it was different as opposed to a normal college fair hire. I submitted my resume to my Human Resources exec and she forwarded it to a recruiter. From there I received an email from the recruiter to prepare with my Store Team Leader and Human Resources so i could properly answer all of the questions. Because i was an internal hire the questions are a higher scope than a regular interview. There were two interviews. One with recruiter (over the phone) and one with the district manager.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. I get paid more than a team leader.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    People were really nice about everything. I applied through my school's job board and was interviewed twice. The first time was with an executive manager at a store and the second time was with a HR representative at the district office. The second interview was toward the end of the recruiting process so it was a little hard to get the second interview. I also was able to get an internship closer to where I lived since home and school isn't in the same area.
