    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Interview process takes a few weeks. You go through three interview level and have a lot of different questions. There is a lot of different math questions and what if questions. It is one of the most detail interviews I've ever had. You do a phone interview and then you go to one lower level team leader and then to another level Leader and then to a third level leader. Some of the questions are hard like asking you if the price is wrong what would you do in that situation. It is very important call the customers guest. do not call them customers. Seasonal employees have a background that is required. That takes up to three weeks to come back. Do not get discouraged by that just wait it out. You need excellent customer service skills and must be able to approach customers without being afraid of the public. They want you to be exceptional customer service and give them an amazing experience. You do not just say how can I help you guide them.

    Interview Details

    The contact was very professional and polite, but no friendliness. When I arrived to the interview, the person responsible seemed annoyed to do it and send somebody else. This someone else seemed to have no experience at interviewing and read from a paper all the time.

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Easy interview. Be conversational. Work experience helpful but not required. Have an open schedule, Be wiling to learn. Not much else to say, it's a basic unskilled job. Not really the kind of thing you should do for life unless you plan to live with your parents or roommates forever and don't go to college.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview 1st and then the next step is in store interview. Relatively difficult for whatever reason and a lot of questions. (10 to be exact). Most of the questions revolved around teamwork and the beginning questions were easy, but as the interview continued, unexpected questions arose. Also in the middle of the interview the interviewer had to randomly include the duties of the front line clerk because of Target policies. I wish I got the job but I think I did poorly in my interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an online application which was lengthy. In less than a week I received a call to set up an interview. I then attended a job fair at a nearby hotel. The Interview was in two stages. My first was with a team leader who asked basic questions about what your availability and previous work experience followed with some basic situation questions. I then had my second interview with an Executive team leader with extensive situational questions. Many based on safety, integrity and guest relations. I did well on this part and was made an offer from someone from HR. After accepting my offer, I was drug tested on site and was told my job offer was based on the results of the test.
