    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Target (Ithaca, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    All of the questions were about team work, when you completed a goal on time, when you went above and beyond expectations, etc. I believe they were like 3 part questions., not too bad but there are more directed towards if you have had a job before.

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one, I had to wait after my last interview then an HR rep came and got me (I thought it was for another interview) and she put a piece of paper down and said "We're offering you a job, $8 an hour, just need you to sign here".

    Interview

    Pretty easy questions. Very nice. After hired had to sit through lots of training videos. Was a pretty fun job. Training really helped. Stocked shelves more than actually cashiering. The interviewer was very nice. This was my first job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target (Sawgrass, FL) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Asks a lot of questions. It's hard if you never had a job before. First they asked me about myself, why I wanted to work there, if a customer needed help with a shoe, what would I do, etc. Lots of questions, and they write it down. You can't lie really, and if you can, fake it til you make it. I am not that type of person, so I didn't do well. Also this was my first interview ever. I didn't get a good manager, and I'm glad I didn't get this job. Every employee complained of the manager and their jobs. I didn't want to be in that type of environment. Also even though the job is for Cashier, they basically want you to be a sales person. They wanted you to sell those red cards, and its more important than anything apparently. Now that I think of it, he asked me if I had experience selling something, which I didn't. I wasn't offered a job or anything, and he actually just left without saying anything, it was a terrible feeling actually, but I learned a lot. It was my first interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target (Lufkin, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to target online. I received a call weeks later to come in for an interview. They told me on the phone before the interview that if I got the job the starting pay would be $9.00 an hour. I told them that I would like a interview so they scheduled me for a Friday at 4. I went in and asked who I needed to see about an interview that I was scheduled for at 4, they directed me to the office to be interviewed, overall the expirence was good, I was nervous being it was my first interview and most of the questions were situational. A tip, if you know anything about the company such as (what a red card is or how they give back to the community.) you will stirke them as you know about the company and educated yourself about them before the interview. So that makes you well prepared. I did not receive an offer that day but she also told me that since it was a weekend that HR would not be there till Monday to see how my interview went but that if my availability and my answers matched what the other mangers wanted to see/ hear then I would be contacted for another interview.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target (Long Beach, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Found that this Target location was hiring by checking the job listings on their website, got a call back and did a phone interview. Then did an in person interview with an HR person and the store's general manager, and was hired a couple days later. Not too many questions, I was actually kind of surprised.

    I had a total of 2 interviews and they lasted maybe 10-15 minutes each. After the interviews I was hired before I left. There were a few others interviewing and it made me a little more at ease knowing other people were going through the same process as me.

    Interview

    I applied online and surprisingly they called me back within two days to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview went great, she sounded very promising and told me to expect a call in the next couple of days. I got a call that same day a few hours later for an in person interview, which I was excited for. A couple of days later, I arrive at the interview, everything was laid back and I was asked a few questions. Unfortunately I was not offered a position, but it was a great experience and easy going and friendly people to talk to. I would recommend at least trying Target!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Target (Mission Viejo, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I talked to the interviewer, front end management, and then head of HR. The interviewer basically tried to feel out my personality and work ethic to see if I would move on. The FEM wanted to test my sales skills and asked me on the spot (unprepared) to sell him his pen, and once he approved I was sent to HR where they asked me a couple of other questions and sent me to get drug tested.

    Interview

    Was very direct and straight too the point, they made sure i was comfortable. They didn't seem snobbish and were very down too earth. The manager made small talk initially and didn't jump right into questions which was very nice.
