    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and the process took one day. I arrived 30 minutes early to human resources to attend my interview for the cashier position. I waited about twenty minutes for my first interview that went fairly well. I was asked "why do you want to work for target? What are your weakness? If I would contact a old supervisor what would they say about you? Tell me about a time where you disliked something a co-worker did an how did you handle the situation? Also, we went over my availability. After my first interview I was asked to do a second interview that with a higher manager. I had to sit an wait for a little over a hour for them to find someone to conduct the interview. I was asked some of the same questions from the first interview. The only difference with my second interview was that I had to do a mock situation with the manager in which I was told about the company red card and his it benefits the customer. I then had to pretend that the manager was a customer an explain to her the benefits of the red card. This second interview lasted about 10 minutes an I was offerer the position.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the position was part time an I was told I would only be working 20 hours a week. I was offered 9.00hr but 20 hours a week wasn't worth the hassle for someone on the bus line.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    There was three other people interviewing so I had to wait for about 20 minutes before I got called in. The first interviewer read all the questions from a packet and took notes on everything I said. After that I was told to wait at guest services for the second interview. That took about 30 minutes, and then I ran through the same thing with a different interviewer and a new packet. She took notes as well on what I said. At the end of the interview, I was asked about my scheduling I put in on the application. I was then told to wait outside again for about 5 minutes and then I talked to the HR Head and she offered me the job on the spot. I was lastly given a few papers to take home.

    Interview

    My overall interview was comprised of two interviews that lasted over an hour. I was first interviewed by an assistant manager with a manger in training and the executive manger who was ahead of the front end of the store. They both asked me about 5 questions each. The questions asked were very long and dry.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Target (San Diego, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Typical interview. Interviewed by HR rep, then a floor manager, then passed on to a final interview with another manager and asked to do an off-site drug test and background check. The interviewers all seemed tired, as they interviewed over 30 people that day. Target tends to hire in binges, so expect there to be many other candidates. However, all my interviews were one to one, with no other candidates present.
