    Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    This interview was for a summer internship with the HR department. This was a panel interview with 3 interviewers, and all three interviewers were pretty nice. The interview was pretty informal and could tell they were genuinely trying to get to know my personality, which is nice coming from a large corporation like Target. The questions they asked were nothing out of ordinary, like greatest challenge you have overcome, your greatest strength and greatest weakness, and tell about a time you dealt with adversity.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Contacted Target at a University Career fair in February 2014. I was then contacted by a recruiter a few days later to set up an initial phone interview. The phone interview was with a Human Resource Director and took about 30-45 minutes. All the questions were behavioral questions looking for STAR answers (Situation or Task, Action that you took, and Results). I was required to take an online critical thinking and reasoning test, this took about 1 1/2 hours to complete. I was then offered an on-site interview at their distribution center, where I interviewed with various Managers and the General Manager. Same behavioral type questions were asked. I was offered an internship position 2 days later. The entire process took about 1 month.

    Met with a recruiter at a college career fair and was contacted about a week later by e-mail. The e-mail prompted me to fill out a candidate profile and a few days later I was called by a target recruiter who conducted a short phone interview about my background. I then proceeded to get another phone interview a few days with behavioral questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I started with recruitment through my university's career fair. The recruiters were very friendly and after talking with me about which area of Target I wanted to work, distribution centers or store executive leadership, directed me to apply on Target's website and through my university's career center website. A week later I was offered an on-campus interview. The questions were all behavioral based, and the interviewers honestly wanted to know how I could contribute to the company and what my long term plans were. I interviewed this morning and am waiting to hear back.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews with HR that were quite conversational. Mostly behavioral and walk through your resume type questions. They were very personable and also very willing to answer my questions. Final round was all fit interview questions on site with 3 people in the buyer organization (2 VPs and 1 Senior Buyer).

    Interview Questions
    • Be very prepared with succinct answers to fit questions in final round. Nothing particularly surprising but they had a worksheet they needed to fill out for each answer which they filled out during the interview.   Answer Question
