Interview

You first are interviewed on the phone, then an in person interview at the company's location. I thought the 1:1 interview was the easiest. The interview process was smooth overall and you're basically hired if you get invited to the second interview round.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone and it was pretty simple, she offered me to come in for a real interview the next day. The interview was 4 hours long. Enough said. I came in early and was put in a room with like 6 other people. I figured it was a group interview.. but nope. Unfortunately they were calling everyone one by one and I was actually one of the last interviews of the day. Each persons interview was at least a half an hour long so by the time they got to me ive just been sitting at a table in this dirty back room for like 3 hours. When they finally called me I had an interview with one of the head supervisors I think and it was mainly him going on about the roles of the job. He asked me to pitch a red card sale and role play with him how I would sell it to a customer. After he finished he said hes putting me through to the next interview which was with the "head" boss. He basically repeated everything the first guy said and asked about my availability and hired me on the spot. Then I had to return to the room and wait until HR came in and told me how much I would be earning and fill out some papers. The whole process was incredibly long and not necessary. There was no need for 2 interviews that were exactly the same and I did not appreciate waiting 4 hours.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    I thought this was going to be a group interview since there was 4 other people. One of them had worse there before 8 years ago. Each person gets interviewed separately by different people. I had two different interviews. They both asked almost the same questions. Said they would call back, haven't had a call. This was 3 weeks ago.

    Interview

    I did the application in-store. Afterwards you pick up the phone and talk to operator who has a GSTL come to you and meet you. It's important here to make a lasting impression. Be unique. Then I came back and met with HR who hired me in the interview pending a drug test. Awesome, quick experience.

    Interview

    When I came in, I logged in and was confused thinking I needed to begin the application all over! The lady from the service desk helped and I began the assessment. I plugged my information in there. It said "someone will call you within 2 weeks." She directed me to go all the way down this aisle, past the cat food! Through the security door. I walked in and talked to the assistant manager. They then asked me four basic questions. They had a really good attitude. Everyone was very upbeat.
