    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Target (Akron, OH) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, telephone interview a week or two later. in person interview a week later. nothing difficult just experience questions, couple of "what if?"s "what if Its your time fro lunch but person next to thinks its their lunchtime"...was offered job after inperson interview, due to retail experience (with letter of excellent customer experience from last store), college degree, and open availability....GOT A NO THANK YOU EMAIL THE NEXT WEEK! who tells someone they have the job and then not? I called their HR to ask what happened/changed, first time i called the HR person "just left" at 2pm on a Friday, (no work schedule!, I could do that job). Got through to them on Monday, politely dodged question and gave political answer. Target lost out on a solid hire, and a Longterm customer by telling me I had the job in the interview and then deciding not to after without ANY REASON!

    Negotiation

    None, slightly above min wage

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Target (Cleveland, OH) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on Friday and received a call, which was a mini interview it seemed like. I was scheduled for an in person interview on Monday. I went in and everyone was extremely nice. I first interviewed with Sales Floor Team Leader. She was extremely nice and relatable so the interview seemed more like a conversation. She asked me to tell her about myself, why I wanted to work for Target, basic interview questions. She was really pleased with my answers and so she took me back to the break room and had someone set me up to watch a video. After the video, I had another interview with an ETL who was also extremely nice. Basically asked me the same questions along with a few behavior questions. Just watch the video and pay attention and you'll do fine. After, I was hired on the spot and went to go do my drug testing.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Target (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    The interview process was handled very well. The application process took some time but calling in and being persistent got me through for an interview. There was only one interview for me. Split into two parts. The first part was done by a more senior sales floor team member. That second was done by higher store management. Both seemed to go over the same points. But one seemed to go over more personality based questions. The other one was more for skills. The regular stuff... "Name a time you solved a problem with another co-worker to reach a compromise" ... "When was a time that you stepped up to learn a new skill to complete a task" - And more things like this.

    Interview Questions

    • "Name a time you had to solve a problem between two guests in a retail environment"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. The job was part-time and they seemed to have a base pay for someone with the experience i possessed.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Target (Stow, OH) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was quick. If you're looking for a job around August or the holiday season they are always desperate for help. The first interview is usually with the person that is going to be your direct supervisor. Dress business attire. This is your time to shine. If they call you back for a second interview then you most likely have the job. Many of the questions are of the format, "Tell me a time when..." They want to hear about the process that you took to accomplish something not just the end result.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question that I was asked was, "Tell me about a time where you did something wrong at work and how you corrected for it."   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't any negotiation for pay. It was simply do you want the job yes or no?
