Application

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2012.

Interview

Asked about my background and previous jobs far more than my current one. Offered a few unnecessary opinions about earlier positions but retracted quickly. Moved on to behavioral-based questions - lots of "Tell me a time when you..." and relating your personality traits with skills and current role. Basically a normal, typical Target interview.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me a time when you had to work with someone difficult, and how you handled it.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Target has quite the 'secretive' interview selection process for hiring employees, none of which seem to make sense. You will spend hours taking IQ/ACT-like 'assessments' consisting of behavorial and reasoning testing after your HR phone screen. From there, be prepared to take at least a 1/2 half day to trek downtown, find parking $$, wander through the skyways/streets, only to be interviewed by a hiring manager for a matter of minutes. Oh yes, and all of the interview questions are behavorial, straight from the HR desk. Don't expect questions directly related to your skills, background, or experience because this would be 'outside' of their top-secret hiring process. If you make the cut beyond this, more in-person interviews would follow. Glad to be cut early enough to avoid wasting any more of my time.....and don't forget to submit for expense reimbursement for your parking costs downtown! What a pain.

    Interview

    Very behavioral and easy questions the interview was at my college career center done by a senior manager. most people from target are friendly and i think they are just trying to get a feel for how good of a fit you will be. make sure you are able to talk about yourself
