    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Target in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and was contacted for an interview in a few weeks. There is also an online test before the interview that covers personality, math skills, and reading comprehension. It is surprisingly difficult, so be prepared.

    typical behavioral interview.
    Why Target?
    Describe a project you took on that you could not handle, and what did you do about that situation?
    What is your favorite department of Target and why?

    They are really just trying to get to know you and make sure you fit with their culture. I made it very conversational, acted like I was having fun during the interview process. A lot of the questions were about how you exhibit leadership and deal with difficult situations.

    Make sure you do your research on Target. It really helps to show them you know their company culture inside and out, and also know where the retail industry and Target is going in the future.

    I heard back within a week.

    Application Details

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied with resume and cover letter then got contacted about a week later to set up a "get to know you" phone called. Call was about 30 minutes and at the end we set up a time for my official interview, which was to be one week later. In that week I had to complete a personality test, reading comprehension, and business math skills assessment. The interview was 100% behavioral lasted about 25 minutes, then we did about another 20 minutes of me asking questions and getting more info on the position. A couple days later I got an offer!

    Everyone I talked with was really awesome and encouraging. I can't wait to start working for Target!

    Tips: it sounds cliché but they're looking for leaders. All of my interview questions could be found on this site in other reviews so you'll know exactly what to expect. Also do your homework so you can ask insightful questions that prove you're interested in the company.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The first "initial call" is actually more like a 15 minute phone interview. At the end you will set up a second time to talk, at which point you will have a 30 minute phone interview. If they decide to give you an offer, you will be required to take a skills test, personality test, and drug test. Contingent on that information, they will give you a job/assignment.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Target in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    My recruiter called and we had a short prelim 15 minute interview with basic questions about me and why I wanted the job. Then I had a second interview that lasted about 30 mins that consisted of behavioral questions. Then I had to do a series of online quizzes and personality tests. The last part was a signature for a background check and a drug test.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Target in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Before the interview I took 4 online assessments: 1 math, 1 verbal, 1 analysis and 1 personality test (a whopper, took 45 minutes). The interview itself was very fast paced with leadership based questions. It's best to be very quick on your feet and personable. I got the sense that deliberate, slow-progressing responses were not welcome. Must have a good resume, and must seem like you have a good head on your shoulders

    Considering it was an internship, there was little negotiation involved. It's a pretty good deal for a summer internship, so I was happy with it.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Target in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Target interviews are all behavior based. They really want to see whether you are a good fit for their culture. They want to know about how you handle tough situations, tough bosses, how you develop others, whether you assume responsibility when you did something that didn't go as planned, and why you are interested in Target.
