    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was sat down in front of two other target employees. They alternated asking questions about various experiences. It is very formal and they acted nice. Make sure to stay confident and try not to b.s. any answers or they will know. Overall the atmosphere was pretty bad. I was the only one in formal clothes during the interview session period.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target (Watertown, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Seasonal position interview took two sittings with two different interviewers. Attitudes towards Target and why do you want to work there was the first. Second question was set of Behavioral questions. How did you react to a tough situation, ethics, moral and challenging types of questions. The orientation process was very good, video and computer based training. A HR representative works on the overnight shift as well so no new hires should ever feel as if they are alone.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Target (Stoughton, MA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Interview call came about 3 days after application. The experience was wonderful. I was interviewed by 3 separate ETLs (executive team lead) and they were all very pleasant. The questions seemed very easy, though this may be because I excel at interviews. One of the ETLs was very charming and easy to talk to--I almost forgot that I was in an interview. Very great process overall. Offer came at the end of the interview and I quickly accepted.

    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stoughton, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target (Stoughton, MA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a month later asking me to come in for an interview. Scheduled the interview for a week later. Went inside and a woman took me to the back office area of the store. I waited there for 20 minutes and finally the manager came and took me into a office room. He went over my application and made sure everything was right and then asked me like 10 questions. They asked me questions that would require you have job experience but I did not, so I found them to be difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the questions were typical like "what are 3 words to describe yourself" "why do you want to work at target" "describe a time when you went above and beyond the expectations" "describe a time when you took on a leadership role to get things done" "what is a weakness about yourself" "what was the best customer service you have given"   Answer Question
