Sales Floor Team Member Interview

Owensboro, KY

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – The process has taken around 3 weeks. After applying online, I received a call to set up a telephone interview. After the telephone interview was completed I was immediately asked to come in for a face to face interview. The interview process was not real formal, I went in with the store manager, where I was asked a series of behavioral based questions. After the interview I was asked to remain in the room we were in and the HR manager came in and asked me to follow her to her office. I was then offered the position. Very laid back interview. If you study the behavioral based questions and know yourself, you should be fine.

Interview Question – The most difficult question I was asked was to name a time I made a mistake in another position and what was the outcome.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – no negotiation

I applied online - interviewed at Target in June 2014.

Interview Details – First they did a phone screening, then a phone interview, and last a one on one interview. It's pretty easy to get an interview as long as you list that you're free all the time. He read questions off a piece of paper and I felt like I did fine because the staff is really friendly. However, I didn't get asked to stay like the girl before me so I knew that she went to the next interview and I would probably get a rejection email.

Interview Question – What was a task you did wrong and what was the outcome?   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

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
