    Interview Details

    Everything went fairly well, initial contact was swift and the hiring manager was friendly and humorous during the interview. Unfortunately, I did not receive a follow up from the employer despite what I felt to be an excellent interview; but, I do understand that other candidates may have been just as qualified as myself. Wish I had made the cut!

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Santa rosa avenue target santa rosa CA.05/29/14 I applied online and a few days later i got a call to come in for an interview at 11 but to be there 10 minutes early since they close at 11. I went in for the interview and there were two parts, the first half with one person then the second with the manager. After they interviewed me they told me they would call me five days later. Five days later they called me in two days after that to come in for a meet n greet which is where I met with the HR. She gave me a conditional job offer at 9.50 an hour plus 1.00 for working night shift. The conditional part was that I go to LabCorps on Sonoma aveune and pass the drug(urine)test. They did not go into the bathroom with me and the process was quick and they were really nice people. Now I'm just waiting for a call for my orientation!

    Overnight Backroom Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Utica, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Utica, NY
    Interview Details

    Interview process was less than palatable. Man basically read questions off a packet of papers, and i knew right there that this wasn't the place for me. Hours they were offering were nowhere near sufficient, either. 12 hours a week won't feed the bulldog for someone who has student loans coming due. Either way, it was just extremely awkward.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    As straight and forward as you can get. If you have interviewed with other companies, this will be no different. In most cases, you'll be interviewed by two, but mostly three people. Then if you pass, which in most cases(unless you are completely worthless), you will, you sign some more paper work, take the usual drug test, and if you passed that, you get to come in with some other new hires, for orientation to watch some videos and ask some question. Not to much to it.

    They're trying to get the cheapest labor they can, that can do the job they need. So you might as well forget it.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Watertown, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Watertown, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Seasonal position interview took two sittings with two different interviewers. Attitudes towards Target and why do you want to work there was the first. Second question was set of Behavioral questions. How did you react to a tough situation, ethics, moral and challenging types of questions. The orientation process was very good, video and computer based training. A HR representative works on the overnight shift as well so no new hires should ever feel as if they are alone.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Received Phone Calls from 2 Different People. One from Logistics,the other one was a Floor Supervisor. The second caller was unaware of the first phone call. Scheduled interview at 6:00 AM, and reiterated 6:00 AM. Was ten minutes early, Rang outside bell and was seen by 2 people inside and given sign it will be just a minute.
       Finally after waiting 15 minutes outside was let in by one of the supervisors, Started to follow him and he said just wait here for a few minutes, I waited another ten minutes, and then was told the person who was supposed to interview me wasn't there. After he got organized he pulled out a sheet of paper and asked me the exact questions that have been mentioned on here previously. I asked 10 questions he asked 3. Was told to watch a video, then come out and see him, after watching ,I came out and another person was there, he said can you come in tomorrow, I said yes, What time? He said 6:30 again. After leaving I was so aggravated at how it was a complete waste of my time, how inconsiderate and disorganized they were.(If I showed up unprepared and wasted their time,I wouldn't have been called back.) So I didn't go to the second interview.
        Over the course of the next week I received 5 messages wanting to set up a second interview. I finally caved and called back,( thinking they must really want me,since I have over 15 years experience in Retail Management doing everything under the sun.
       Scheduled 2nd interview, aced it, was in and out in 15 minutes. All questions previously posted on here.. Received a phone call next day saying they want to make me an offer,
     Went in for offer, The desk jockey called me behind her desk and offered me more or less minimum wage plus the overnight incentive coming to $9.75. INSULTING!!!!!!!
       I should have followed my initial instincts and bailed after the first interview.
