Interview

I put in an application online on a Friday. Got a phone call on a Monday. She asked me about my availability and etc. She then set up a phone interview for that Thursday. It went extremely well. The lead then said she would recommend me for a second interview. I got a call from someone else to schedule a face to face interview. The guy who interviewed me was wonderful. He was so fun to talk to. He asked me questions like "Name a time when..." Etc. Then he said he would reference me to STL? i think that was his name. I already knew I had the job though because the first guy, the ETL loved me. The STL...or STO...or whatever didn't even really ask me many questions. He said"Tell me about yourself." And other questions that I will put below. Overall, it was a breeze....the other employees were also fun and sweet. Don't be nervous! Thanks to Glassdoor, I did extremely well.

    Interview

    Applied online, went in to check on the status of application. Given interview next day were i was asked very basic interview questions. Mostly situation questions. What you would do if certain things happened. Only downside was that I had to wait very long for my second interviewer, and I could hear her talking to a coworker in the back.

    Interview

    I was taken aback by my interviewers. First the guy did not have me down for the right job. Thought i was interviewing for the flow team. I did not apply to that position. Than asked their behavioral questions they asked everyone who interviews. It was a packet with questions. Than their were two more interviews. The second was unprofessional as they tried to push their credit card and app on me.I am glad I was not offered the position as the management team turned me off of target. I will not even shop their now as i see how they think about possible hires.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target (Newburgh, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online in early September and received a phone call asking if I was still interested in the job on October 8th. The initial phone call was to confirm my initial information that was given(i.e. position I applied for, salary details, etc.). After confirming that I was still interested in the job they sent up the phone interview for the next day at 11 am and had me call up a 1-800 number to confirm information about the store location, position applied for, as well as my social security number. The next morning I received a phone call from them about 45 minutes late and the interviewer apologized for the delay. I was asked three behavioral questions such as "tell me a time you did something for someone without expecting anything in return" as well as "Why do you want to work for target". Interview itself was very easy and you shouldn't have to worry about them asking any really hard questions. After the interview, I was informed that they would forward my information to HR and that I would be notified about a decision within the next few days. Three days later I received an email stating that they were unable to offer me a position at this time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Target (Bangor, ME).

    Interview

    The interview was relatively laid back, although I did have to sit through the questions of multiple members of management (this may have been because they wanted to see if I would be available to work in inventory and receiving, but it was still a little nerve-wracking being questioned by multiple people at once!) Since I was well qualified I was ushered right out the door to take a drug test and offered a position the same day. The process was very expedient and everything was explained in detail to me. Since a more lucrative offer cropped up elsewhere, I ended up declining the offer, but had I accepted I would have gone through an orientation training and then I'd be on the schedule within the next week/week and a half.

    Interview Questions

    • To be honest they didn't really throw any curve balls. Just the usual "What do you do if you have a difficult customer?" and "Someone is stealing from the company, what do you do?" As long as you've been to this sort of rodeo before you'll do just fine. Just take a deep breath and say what you think is right for the situation.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I got a better offer elsewhere.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target (North Haven, CT) in August 2014.

    Interview

    My first interview was fine. They called me in, asked me standard interview questions (strengths/weaknesses, past experience, etc). Normally, they would do second interviews on the same day, but things were really hectic that day so they scheduled it for later in the week.

    So I came in for my second interview about ten minutes early, and proceeded to wait an hour for the interviewer to meet with me. He seemed like he was in a terrible mood and didn't want to meet with me in the first place. Now, the positions I applied for were cashier and sales floor team member; however, after a couple generic questions that were already asked in my first interview, he told me that those positions were filled and they had no use for me.

    Half a week later, there were new ads put up for the same exact positions. Either this store has some serious communication issues, or they're fine with lying to interviewees.

    I applied online – interviewed at Target in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and they called me within a week for an interview. They told me the salary right away on the phone which was $9.00. No negotiations. I went in 10 minutes early to the interview and they asked me to fill out a quick questionnaire on the computer but there was only 2 computers. One was occupied and the other wasn't working. They said they would call someone to fix it and I had to keep reminding them every 5 minutes. That never got fixed so they had me fill it out on paper. Then the interviewer came for me & halfway through the interview she stopped me to basically tell me I was boring. She said I would have to answer more bubbly or I wouldnt get hired. I guess I wasnt bubbly enough. Never heard back.
