Interview Details – I met a recruiter at a college campus career fair. Two days later I was invited to interview on my school campus and was asked a series of basic behavioral questions (ex. Tell me about a time when you made a difficult decision). Target is very team and leadership oriented so they are looking for leadership examples in your answers. A few days later I was asked back for a second-round interview at their headquarters. The interview questions were the same for the 2nd interview, but instead of talking to one person at a time, you talk to a panel of 3, 3 times in a row. Essentially you have 3 back-to-back interviews.
Interview Question – The questions are necessarily difficult, but it's hard not to be repetitive when you're asked the same thing by three different groups consecutively. For example, Tell me about a difficult time you overcame, tell me a time you made a difficult decision, tell me about a time you had to do something you didn't want to do, etc. Answer Question

Interview Details – The initial interview took about 15 minuets to do. Basic interview questions. Why do you want to work for Target? Whats your best quality? What could you improve on. After that I was pushed to the second interview, which was STAR. This takes some time. Make sure you look at other interviewees' posts for the questions, the 5 that I was given were on there. Once the was completed I was then asked to take another exam. This was mathematical, as well as situational, behavioral, and customer service related. Make sure you have a pen and paper, and a calculator, you will need it. I did not make it to the next round after that, unfortunately.
Interview Question – Logarithm questions, as well as scheduling questions for employees. I was caught off guard and was not prepared. Answer Question
