Distribution Operations Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university - interviewed at Target in February 2014.

Interview Question – Do not feel comfortable revealing questions. Answer Question
Target Sales Associate Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Target in November 2013.
Interview Details – When I arrived (half an hour early) I was taken to a kiosk to fill out an assessment. I was then instructed to wait in the snack bar until called. Half an hour after my scheduled interview time a sales person came out to tell me the manager would see me shortly, she was eating lunch! When the manager came out to speak to me it was the very same woman who had walked by me three times in the past half hour on the way to retrieve something from the snack bar.
I was taken to a room and asked to sign papers agreeing to certain work hours. That was before ANY type of description about job, pay, benefits, etc. I was then asked the standard questions. I had to inquire about the pay since that information wasn't offered to me. I was then instructed to watch a dvd and "someone" else would be in to interview me but that it might be awhile. I mentioned that I had another interview in 3/4 of an hour. (By that time I had already been there well over an hour). The manager left the room and the dvd sound went out and I was unable to finish watching the dvd. After waiting for 15-20 mins I finally tracked down someone and told them I would have to reschedule another day because I had another appointment.
Needless to say, I won't work for Target and I doubt I'll even shop there any more. The total disrespect to me and my time is inexcusable.
Interview Question – The most difficult part was getting pertinent information. Answer Question
Sales Floor Team Member Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – I was called to have a phone interview 1 day after I applied for the sales floor team member for target. They asked me five basic questions for example name one time when you had to work as part of a team, it was a quick interview about 5 minutes and they said they'll call me back if they choose me for a face to face interview and they didn't call.
Interview Question – why should we hire you Answer Question
Pharmacist Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in March 2013.
Interview Details – Phone interview with HR. Asked several specific questions right away. I honestly was not prepared since this was the first step into the interview process. I suggest anyone looking into Target for a pharmacist position to be extremely prepared. Target pharmacy is one of the most difficult companies to obtain a position in retail pharmacy.
Interview Question – Please tell me a time when you had to deal with a controversy and what did you do about it? Answer Question
Executive Team Leader Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Target in December 2012.
Interview Details – I interviewed through an on-campus interview and thought it went well but not the greatest. I really clicked with one interviewer but the other was cold. I then was interviewed two more times. Both were very interested in me and told me I would be starting within two weeks and it was mine. I then had to interview with a District Leader who asked me the same questions but could not answer any of my questions as he was new. I was then offered a job for less than half the pay of the Executive Team Leader. This was a total slap in the face and waste of time. I'm not sure why the district leader did not like me. He said I wasn't able to answer the questions to his level. I was really rubbed the wrong way, not because I didn't get the job but because I was told it was mine and then turned down for not answering how he thought I should. I found it contradictory as I asked him three job specific questions and he couldn't answer any.
Interview Question – None, I was prepared for all the questions and did my homework. View Answer
Group Leader Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Target in May 2013.
Interview Details – Two phone interviews with national recruiter leading up to final on site interview with the Distribution Center team. All questions in the evidence based format, "Tell me about a time..." Looking for Situation, Action, Respose format in answers
Interview Question – Conflict with co-workers Answer Question
Executive Team Leader Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – I found out about this position at my college Career Fair. The people at the booth were friendly and I was offered an interview after talking with them after about 5 minutes at my college campus the next week. The interview was simple and they tell you how they want you to answer questions; use the STAR method. Questions like tell me about a time you had to lead a team, or a time you worked with someone who was difficult i.e. behavior questions. After that I was offered a second interview at the district office. Besides the fact that the interview was almost an hour late it was pleasant and they asked more of the same questions. There is one guy asking you questions and the other writing things down.
Overall basic pleasant interview experience.
Interview Question – Relate a time when you motivated someone to do better and accomplish something. Answer Question
Group Leader Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – Lengthy Interview. Be prepared to spend the whole day. Scenario based questions. Tell me about a time.... Seemed like they weren't interested in someone who could think outside the box, but rather just do the job as described. Will need to be a motivated team player. Received a response that was not selected within less than a day. Disappointing because it seemed like a positive interview.
Interview Question – Nothing was super difficult or unexpected. View Answer

Team Lead - Operations and Logistics Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in October 2012.
Interview Details – First phone interview was simple. The purpose was to make sure I had the basic skills required to fill the job.
The second phone interview was supposed to be 5 scenario based questions. I used this website, spent several hours the day before preparing responses and a cheat sheet and all in all I felt I was very well prepared. During the phone interview I was only asked 3/5 questions. After third question HR Rep told me everything went well and that I would be interviewing at the warehouse next and that I would be asked similar questions to what I was asked that day. She said she was going on vacation soon and would provide me dates for my next round of interviews when she returned.
The following week I got the notorious email telling me that Target is considering other applicants and that it was their policy not to give feedback on why I was removed from the applicant pool.
