I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Target in June 2012.
Interview Details – They were fairly slow in their hiring process after the final interview. I had only one interview, although now I hear that they are doing phone interviews followed by an in-person final interview. You apply via a kiosk with the store itself. It was approx a week after my application that I was contacted via phone to set up an interview. 3 weeks later I had my first day. They will be asking for a urine sample to be carried out at a lab after you are tentatively hired (in my case, Quest Diagnostics).
Interview Question – They asked me about a time that I had a huge conflict with a coworker and how I resolved it. I've never had a huge conflict, so I made something up. I thought it was somewhat ridiculous to assume that everyone has had a serious conflict with a past coworker. View Answer
Negotiation Details – They didn't seem very open to pay negotiation. Then again, I don't remember asking outright.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in March 2013.
Interview Details – The interview is very simple. It is essentially a joke. The only thing anyone need worry about is making sure to get to the lab they send you to for a urine drug-screening test within 24 hours of the job offer.
Interview Question – What is something that your previous employer would ask less of you? Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in January 2013.
Interview Details – Went in early. Well dressed and fresh looking. I was told to sit on a bench by the registers for about 15 mins. After being called in I met the HR. Asked questions on leadership, scenarios for helping guests, and what could I bring to Target. Than I met the LOD of Logistic who asked the same questions. After that, I met the Back Room team lead who asked the same questions. All of them were very nice and not to forcing.
Interview Question – The most Difficult question asked was how have I been a leader before and how can I bring leadership to Target. That was the first and most biggest value Target seemed to look for. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Allow your interviewer to know that you enjoy customer service, fast pace work, and that you have leadership skills to lead others. Always respond positive and honest.
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Target in September 2012.
Interview Details – I was called the day after I submitted my online application and resume. I went in for an interview, completed some computer psychological tests, interviewed with the GSTL and ETL back to back, answering some of the same questions. Both had "interview booklets" they were writing in while I was speaking. After the interview with the ETL a young HR rep came into the room with a handful of papers and very mater-of-factly informed me that I was being offered a position as a team member, front end, at $7.75/hour and gave me the information about when and where to obtain my mandatory drug test. I left feeling very confused, not certain about what job I had been offered exactly (we had discussed more than one) and when and where I would be training and working.
Interview Question – Why Target? Not a hard one for me to answer, just unexpected. View Answer
Negotiation Details – There was none. I was offered $7.75/hour, part-time. My first pay check indicated that I was making $8/hour. Never questioned it. After my 90-day-probation my rate went to $8.25/hr. almost automatically. Again I never questioned it and no one offered any explaination.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in August 2011.
Interview Details – 1) Applied online. 2) Got called 3 weeks later to schedual for an interview. 3) Interviewed by a supervisor (team leader) and the head of HR department. All situational based questions. Can't remember any specific ones. They write your answers down as you speak.
Interview Question – NONE Answer Question
Negotiation Details – NONE
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in December 2012.
Interview Details – There are a total of three interviews. The first one is over the phone. If they like the way you answered the questions over the phone, they will give you a call to go into the store for an in-person interview. In this interview they will take you in a group to see a short video of what the job is about. They will then take you one by one to have an in person interview, while everyone else is filling out a questionnaire. Finally, after all of this they will give you a call for the third "interview". I place the hyphens because it's more of a job offering. They inform you that you have to take a drug test in a given location within twenty-four hours.
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Target in November 2012.
Interview Details – (Note: this application process takes weeks ! ) Basically I applied on the store's computer terminal because they needed seasonal workers. Aside from your basic information,job experience, availability,they give you a personaility test, depends on what positions you choose to apply for, will depend how many questions you are asked. I got asked about 90, while my friends only 48. They basically want to see if you can work in a team, are a problem solver, and can work independently, and of course if you are a stable happy-go lucky person. Its annoying. Expect to spend more than an hour.
Got called in a week for a phone interview. They asked me situaltional questions, the same as everyone has listed in here. They let me know I will be called in for a 1 on 1 in person interview.
Another week later I was called by a manager to come in for 1 on 1 interview. The day came and I had to take an Assessment Test on the computer (30mins). The manager was down to earth and super nice. Interview went similar to the phone interview, with more situational questions..about what to do when you ring up and item and the customer tells you it's listed as a cheaper price on the shelf, or a mother looking for a particular shoe size for her son, what do you do ? etc. What are your strenghs and weaknesses blah blah. FInally after a long time, I was told to expect a call soon for a 3rd interview from a higher manager to finally be hired ! I was frustruated by this time due to the process taking so long and I just needed to make $ fast, cuz then I would prob wait another 2 weeks to actually get paid. By the time I got called in to come in, Its been 3 weeks into the process. I went in for an informal interview with the other manager and it went fine, they told me I got hired and gave me a slip to go take a drug test within 24 hrs. Done. All that for $ 8.25 an hour, and for only seasonal work, on top of that, they never give you 40 hours a week, always less...
Interview Question – Recall a time when you had to work as a team to achieve a goal. Recall a time when you had to deal with a customer complaint and how did you fix it. What are your Strenghs and Weaknesses Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Process took way too long. Got another job cuz I really needed the Money right away, plus they weren't hiring for permament positions. Plus they Never give you 40 hours a week.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Target in October 2012.
Interview Details – I applied online and got a call the same day but missed that call so thankfully they tried again the next day and told me to come in five days later at 8am for an interview. This 'interview' was just a skills/personality test and then they said to come back next Monday to continue the process. This was a long process. I waited for over 2 hours before I was interviewed by the first person, waited some more for the 2nd person to interview me, then waited a little more and got the offer from an HR person in addition to instructions about taking the drug test. The total time was about 3 hours by the time I left.

Interview Details – Applied online. Contacted for phone interview on a Tuesday for an interview on the phone the next day. The phone interview had questions like 'Why do you want to at Target' etc... Phone interview ended after around 20 minutes. Was contacted again roughly an hour later to schedule an interview at the store. I went to the store to watch video summary of the job and take assessment concerning situation in the store about coworkers and various math questions reading graphs. The only real negative about the experience is having to wait to afterwards to be interviewed individually. I understand doing this for convenience but its not courteous to the applicants. I did not feel rushed by the interviewers when the time came to ask my questions. I did not receive an offer as I received the rejection email today. But two days later I received a call to come in for a job offer. Overall a positive experience.
Interview Question – Asked about if an item rings up for a certain price but the customer insists it is another and what I would do. View Answer
Negotiation Details – None
