    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Was highered right on the spot. Had 2 small interviewers and 1 meet with the leader of the area I will be working at. I'm almost certain that I got hired for having an open availability, but then get 20 hours 2 weeks in advance pre-scheduled hours. The hours are so random and all over the place, time will only tell.

    Cashier/Sales Floor Team Member Interview

    Interview Details

    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.

    Cashier Interview

    Interview Details

    Very easy process, typical interview questions. They always do a phone interview first, then schedule an in-person interview for about a week later. The in-person interview didn't take more than 15 minutes and I was offered the job on the spot pending drug test results. There is a high turnover rate (at least at the store I worked at), so they are almost constantly hiring, especially during back to school and holiday seasons.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. 5 days later I got a call from one of the leaders and he told me he was about to conduct a phone interview with me. That went well. He said someone will call within 48 hours to set up a face-to-face interview. A lady called the next morning and asked if I could come in the next day @1. She told me to arrive 15 early. I arrived 20 mins early and the customer service lady told me to take and assessment online. It was 20 scenario questions asking me what was the best choice and what was the worst. That took about 15 mins. The customer service lady then told me to go sit on a bench and she'd tell the team leader I was ready. I sat there for 15 minutes and finally a lady came out. She directed me to this room where I was supposed to watch a video but she didn't know how to work it so she told me I'd watch it at orientation. We went to an office and she asked me the same questions the guy asked me on the phone. Excluding one question that had to do with a customer claiming an item was $17.99 when its really $19.99. After that she directed to another office where I met the head team leader. It took her about 5 mins to settle down cause she was printing papers and what not. finally she dives straight into the days I said I could work and asked if I could change my Friday and Saturday night availability to midnight. I really didn't want to but I said yes because I need the job. She had me initial some papers then told me I need a drug test 24 house after hiring. She also told me the orientation date and time, what to wear and to bring. Then she escorted me out. That process took a little over an hour. My only problems were 1) she didn't give me the drug test papers & when I called and asked her about it she said. "We're not drug testing seasonal employees this year" which was strange but let's hope she's right. I'd hate to get fired at orientation

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied online maybe 2 weeks before I got a call for my first interview. My first interview was a phone interview. I got asked things like "Why do you want to work here?", past experiences, and like 4 behavioral questions. It's fairy easy if you have your STAR based stories ready. I was contacted 2 days later to schedule my second interview for next week. My second interview was easier than my first (to me). When you get there you will do a short questionnaire (20 questions). When I was done I waited for the manager to come get me. I watched a video about the position I applied for before the interview. The manager was very outgoing and nice. We started with an icebreaker, she told me about herself and I told her about me. She asked some of the same questions as my first interview, a long with new questions like "What would you do if.." basically customer situational questions. After the interview, she told me that she would recommend my application to proceed in the hiring process and that I would receive an email or a call to set up with the HR. At that point I was going back and fourth on rather I got the job or not lol but I got a call later that day to meet with the HR that following week. Meet with HR and got offered the job... took drug test/ background check and got called a week after for orientation.

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

    Interview Details

    They called me about a month later after I applies online. I didn't expect them to consider me so I never followed up after submitting the application. Well, the first interview was quick and easy. HR wasn't there to continue the process to I had to wait a few days for them to call back to schedule the second one. The second one was fairly simple but more nerve wracking than the first. They gave me an offer on the spot (need to pass drug and background). Orientation a week later.
