    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Target in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for a seasonal part-time position, and got a call the next day to schedule an interview. They had me sit down and answer some situational questions (similar to the ones asked in the application) before going in for the first interview. Both interviews were easy, and lasted no longer than 20 minutes each. I was offered a job on the spot and accepted. Overall the process took 3 days.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Target (Bellevue, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied at an in-store kiosk that consisted of a pretty lengthy questionnaire, and was called a few days later to schedule an interview. Upon arriving I was again directed to the kiosk for a secondary questionnaire that was much shorter before an in-person interview.

    The manager who interviewed me was very friendly, and the questions were pretty typical. Some did require specific examples where you have demonstrated certain traits, like leadership, but nothing too difficult. After this interview I was directed to go watch a recruitment video of sorts before I had another interview with a different person.

    The second interview was very similar to the first, also requiring specific examples from my life. They also asked what I learned about target from the video, so try to at least pay attention enough to have an answer for that.

    After all this (the whole process took around an hour with waiting time between interviews), I was directed to HR and hired on the spot. Overall the interviewing process was more lengthy than difficult. Just try to come across positive and energetic.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target in April 2015.

    Interview

    They called about a week after submitting my application and asked about my availability and if I had any upcoming vacations. They then told me what the job paid ($9/hr) and asked if I was still interested. They then scheduled a phone interview for the following week which I just completed. The phone interview was only about five minutes and she seemed in a rush to get off the phone, so I'm not sure I'll be contacted for the second interview.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Target (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    My interview was scheduled at 9:30 I showed up I believe at 9:15 and I didn't get seen until 11:30 the hr couldn't find any one to do the interview, I went through one interview passed it, then sat around waiting for about 40 mins to be interviewed by another manager. I was given the job with the started pay of $8.00 I felt disgusted because I have years of experience and longevity with every job I've ever had. Despite that I spent 4 hours there just to do two interview I spent most of my time waiting. If you are 16 to 18 or a college student just looking for a part-time job Target is for you. That's all you will see working there

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online on a Sunday afternoon. Target called me and left a message on Monday morning. Once I called them back they asked about my availability, nothing more. We then set up a time that week on Friday for an interview. At the interview I was first asked a couple questions about hobbies, more availability questions and some "what would you do" questions. A second worker came in, after I watched a video about the atmosphere at Target, and asked me "explain a time where..." questions. The next Monday morning they called me, and offered me a job.

    Interview Questions

    • "Explain a time where you had to stand up for yourself"
      "Explain a time where you were interrupted, but had to still complete a task"
      "When was a time when you didn't get along with somebody, but had to work through it?"
