    I went to a career fair at my school and was told my resume would be reviewed and I would receive a phone call if they liked my resume. A few days later I was scheduled for a phone interview. The interview was just a list of behavioral based questions. At the end the recruiter ask me if I had any questions. I never heard back from them after the phone call.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the Assistant Manager Trainee Program at Target through my university. A week after handing in my resume at a career fair, I received an email stating that I was a potential candidate. I was asked to fill out the application online, and complete a 94 question online assesment thereafter. The assesment was a bit difficult. It contined analytical, behavioral, and math based questions. Throughout the process, I received an email requesting a phone interview. The interviewer was extremely polite, and very nice. The first question was to tell him about myself, then he asked me why I wanted to work at Target. The third question was why I would be a good fit for the company, then he asked what were my career goals and where I saw myself in 5 years. The next series of questions were behavioral based like" Can you think of a time where you had to make a difficult decision at work? Can you think of a school or work project that you recently worked on and what was the outcome? Did you ever have a problem with anyone at work and how did you handle the situation? Can you tell me about a situation at work or school were you had to help one of your peers with a work/school conflict? Lastly, he asked me if I had ever made a mistake or a wrong decision at work and what I learned from it. Then of course he asked me if I had any questions! The interview was about 20-30 mins. The next step is to wait to see if I hear from them in the next couple of days. I hope my review is helpful! : )

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone Interview
    Next step was another phone interview
    Then I met with the District Manager.

    Everyone was nice. In the end I didn't get an offer but I would rate the experience as positive. Every question is "Tell me about a time when..."

    I didn't hear back for a while so when I emailed my recruiter I was responded to with a cut copy paste rejection letter.

    I applied online. After that a hr rep e-mailed me and set up a time that someone could call me for a interview. They gave me several options for when the interview would take place. They also let me know that the interview answers should take place using the STAR method. They even send me a link so that I would know what it was. It is a good thing that I opened it beacuse they commenented on the fact that I had opened it.
