    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Target (Bellevue, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied at an in-store kiosk that consisted of a pretty lengthy questionnaire, and was called a few days later to schedule an interview. Upon arriving I was again directed to the kiosk for a secondary questionnaire that was much shorter before an in-person interview. The manager who interviewed me was very friendly, and the questions were pretty typical. Some did require specific examples where you have demonstrated certain traits, like leadership, but nothing too difficult. After this interview I was directed to go watch a recruitment video of sorts before I had another interview with a different person. The second interview was very similar to the first, also requiring specific examples from my life. They also asked what I learned about target from the video, so try to at least pay attention enough to have an answer for that. After all this (the whole process took around an hour with waiting time between interviews), I was directed to HR and hired on the spot. Overall the interviewing process was more lengthy than difficult. Just try to come across positive and energetic.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Pretty simply they were just looking for slaves. If you where physically capable of standing scanning talking and zoning you got the job. I was just asked basic interview questions but they made we wait two hours in the break room before even being interviewed. I was interviewed twice and asked the same questions by both interviewers.

    It was pretty seamless. The questions that they asked were pretty basic, and none of them were difficult to answer. Be prepared to give examples for each of the questions, as there's a big emphasis on that.
