Cashier Interview

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – I was asked to fill out an application that took about 30 minutes. I asked to speak to human resources to leave a resume and let her know im highly intrested in this position. She set up an Interview for me the very next day. I was interviewed by two different people (which werent too bad). At last, I spoke to human resources again for job offerings and got hired the very same day. I should be getting a call back soon for orientation.

Interviewed at Target

Interview Details – There are 2 processes: first, it is the phone interview and the second one is face to face interview. The phone interview is usually for testing your English skill and your communication skill. The face to face interview is usually not that difficult even though there will be 2 people doing the interview separately. It will ask common questions such as your experience from previous jobs, what difficult about it???

Interview Question – What is your strength and weaknesses?   Answer Question

Cashier/Sales Floor Team Member Interview

Cashier/Sales Floor Team Member

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – I had a friend who worked there and told me to apply and he would put a word in. I applied online. My friend told me a manager was going to call me for a phone interview. It was about 5 minutes. Questions were "tell me about a time a problem arose and what did you do to to solve it?" type questions. There wasn't too much pressure. The interviewer was laid back and even gave me advice at the end of the phone call on how to stand out. I remember him telling me not to be afraid to brag about myself. We scheduled an in-person interview for a couple days later. I went in and again, it was a short, laid back experience. The interviewer was an older gentleman who was nice and eased any standard interview nerves by making jokes. It felt more like a friendly conversation than an interview. Don't really remember the questions. I was offered a job on the spot. If you know someone who works there it helps.

Interview Question – There were just a lot of situation type questions that are sometimes hard to come up with good answers to when you can't relate so you just have to make stuff up, and make it sound good.   Answer Question

Cashier & Guest Service Team Member Interview

Cashier & Guest Service Team Member

I applied online and interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – I applied online on a Tuesday, and got called a few hours later to schedule an interview for the next day, Wednesday. However, I couldn't make it to the Wednesday interview and scheduled it for Friday morning instead. When I walked into Target, I was required to do a questionnaire. After that, I told them I was finished, and I was directed to go upstairs. I had 2 interviews right after another, the first with the head of cashiers, 2nd with someone who was a little higher in management rank. Before the 1st interview, between the two interviews, and after the 2nd, I was asked to wait in the break room, which I did. While I was in the break room I was able to talk to some current employees who were all very nice. As I was waiting after the 2nd, someone from HR told me that I'd be called in a couple days for notification of if I got the job or not, because they have to compare all the applications. Overall, a good experience. But after reading many reviews on this website, it seems that the people who did get the job, got hired on the spot.

Interview Question – They were all pretty straightforward questions. Why Target, strengths and weaknesses, when you exceeded expectations, when you made a mistake/what was the solution, and then some situational questions. The two interviews had identical beginning questions, but the situational questions were a bit different.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in October 2013.

Interview Details – I saw a sign in stores and applied online. They called me in for an interview. I interviewed with two people and was asked to fill out a questionnaire. They hired on the spot and I was asked to take a drug test within 24 hours. They also play you an orientation video before actually giving you the job so pay attention because it helps you answer questions.
