    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Target (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Same as you seen on here, phone screen, tell me about yourself, why target, and 4 behavioral questions. PRACTICE! and ask questions! Ask about the position, and engage with the recruiter. My first interview was 7 mins and second one was 22 mins. It was two recruiters which was weird. The online assessment was HORRIBLE!! I guessed almost on everything and it was time consuming!

    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Target (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had three interviews: two phone interviews and an in-person interview. They ended up calling me to cancel the in-person interview and switch it to another phone interview because the person couldn't be in the office that day; so they never saw me in person which I thought was strange and could have been attributed to me not getting an offer.

    After the first interview, they sent me an online quiz to take and that determined whether they would call you for the second and third interview. I must have passed because I received a second and third interview.

    Each interview comprised of four behavioral questions. In the beginning, they would ask to tell them more about yourself; and then they would go in to the behav. questions. They all start with: "Describe a time when..." After those four questions, that was the end of the interview.

    It was an extremely long process. It took them a few days since I submitted my application online for them to schedule the interview. The first interview was scheduled very quickly, but then I had to wait a week to schedule the second and third at the same time.They were going to be "out of the office" for a full week so I had about a two week waiting period until the second and the third interviews happened. Then I waited a full week for them to tell me I didn't get the job.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target (Wheaton, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Friendly. A few behavioral questions. A lot of time for questions at the end. 30 minutes or less. I was wanting to keep my options open for either a summer internship or the ETL position. Interviewer was really pushing for the ETL position and did not seem to actually listen to what I was trying to tell him about my career goals. Overall the interviewer was friendly and knowledgable about Target. Answered all of my questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were average about past jobs and skills, but an odd question caught me off guard, it was say your working at the register and A customer with 2 screaming kids tells you one of the items is ringing up wrong, she was sure that the item was on sale, so you're left with no other employee to help you, how would you settle this? My thoughts was i never been a cashier this question is gonna kill me   Answer Question
    • After I got my email stating my schedule for my orientation, I called HR letting them know I received the date, she told me that my orientation will be a later date and that they will call me, is that a bad thing?   Answer Question
