I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in May 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online, was called 4 days later and scheduled a phone interview for the next day. Phone interview was basic questions about past work experience and how I handle customer service. Scheduled an in person interview for the next day. Consisted of a short interview with the same questions from the phone interview with a manager then watched an employee video. Had a second interview with another manager and was asked what intrigued me most about the video and about working at Target. She told me I would receive a phone call if I am hired and an email if not.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you implemented a change in a group and what were the results?   Answer Question

I applied online - interviewed at Target in March 2014.

Interview Details – You apply for it online, someone will contact you if you have meet some of their requirements in which they are looking for.. Then you will have a chance for 2 interviews on the same day. Afterwards will call you if you have made the cut. Then have to take a mandatory pre employment drug test within 24 hours of offering. Then you wait for results then they will set orientation date. :-)

Interview Question – There weren't any. Just know yourself and know how you work. I think it's important to know yourself before going to a job interview because then you can answer their question with confidence. Also, prepare. Nothing is better than preparing.   Answer Question

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – Very simple interview process. Only 1 front-end manager. Lasted less than 15 minutes. They are not looking for a specific kind of person for this kind of position. They are only looking for a body to put behind the register. The longest part of the process was filling out the application.

Interview Question – "When can you start?" The questions were not difficult. There were no significant personality questions. It was a very straightforward and simple process. No need to worry about difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You cannot negotiate minimum wage.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – It's a two part interview process. They conduct both interviews within the same day.You are interviewed by two executive managers and then the final say is the manager from that department. The questions are scenario based and how you will handle interactions with the guest.

Interview Question – The question was relating to price changes   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Basically I was given the salary I asked for so it really wasn't a big negotiation phase.

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – Interview fair at a local church. Three team members who were to begin working at the opening store interviewed each potential candidate. Questions asked hypothetical situations, previous work experience, and behaviors relating to friends, family and strangers. After several minutes following the third interview, I was called back to another room and offered a position so long as I passed the drug test.

Interview Question – The typical lame questions like, Name a time you went above and beyond to help someone else; When was a time you had a conflict and how did you resolve it? These types of questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was just asked if I could begin orientation on the date selected and told my hourly wage.

Interviewed at Target

Interview Details – First had to apply online. After that they called within 1 week and ask to come in for interview. Was interviewed by a GSTL "Front End Supervisor" and the Front End ETL "The supervisor in charge of the GSTL". The interview questions are similar to other jobs such as why do you want to work here and ECT. After that they gave me the job on the spot but had to get a drug test first. Took them a week to get the drug test appointment. After the test they contacted me in 2 weeks for orientation

Interview Question – What would a teacher or employer said you would have to improve on?   View Answer
