    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Target in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cuyahoga Falls, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cuyahoga Falls, OH
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    They are very difficult to interview with if you're not ready for STAR questions. Also, they use tactics against you to test you. One of the interviewers may be extremely rude and hard to talk with, on purpose. It's just to see how you react. Oh, and the pay is not remotely worth the stress and agony people. You make like the flashy prospect of 45k a year... but you'll be a slave. 60 hours a week or more and treated like dirt. I'm happy I turned down my offer.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    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

    Flow Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Stow, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stow, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Target in July 2013.

    Interview Details

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