    I applied online – interviewed at Target in August 2014.

    Interviewed with two different team leaders and was asked a lot of questions about my reactions in specific situations. Definitely a much more involved interview than I expected. Seems as though they really want to make sure they're hiring good people

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target.

    A recruiter reached out to me from my CareerBuilder profile. We had a 15 minute screening conversation and we set up my first phone interview. It was the first of four: two phone interviews, two in-person. The whole process took about a month because of them having to arrange around various people's schedules.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's career website and had my first interview on campus. The interviewer was very personable and ask general questions such as tell me about yourself and why I want to work for Target followed by five behavioral questions. It was a great experience and I got a second interview at their local headquarters. The person I was suppose to interview with was not there, so I interviewed with someone else. I did not feel as comfortable and I did not do so well on this one even though it was the exact same process. I received an email the following day that I was not offered the position. Do your research, know behavioral situations, and be able to go into detail about what you specifically did and what the result was.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call about a week later to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was pretty short, about 15 minutes, mostly situational questions, though we did talk about my availability a bit. After that, she said she would definitely recommend me for an in-person interview. The next day, I got a call to schedule the in person interview the following day.

    I came early for my in person interview to complete the second applicant questionnaire, which took about 15 minutes. I had my interview with the ETL for hardlines, again, situational questions. At the end of the interview I was offered a job.
