I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – Total of 3 interviews, although I've heard that it could be out of 4. First one was phone interview with HR asking basic questions like "why do you want to work at Target", "Tell me about a time when displayed leadership skills" etc. Second interview was with an STL at a Target location asking the same basic questions, but with the addition of 5 behavioral questions like the ones on this site. Third was with HR. Waiting for their response.

Interview Details – Round robin interview process. You interview with a recruiter, then a store manager and then a district manager. They also have you interview with an HR sometimes.

Interview Details –
I filled application online and also download my resume along with it. HR e-mail to set up a phone get to know you interview within two days. After the interview she told me I passed and will be moving on to the next phase. I meet with STL and DTL face to face interview in a local target store. It went well, they both were very nice. I pass that interview and HR call me right away the next day to schedule a phone interview with the group leader. A week later I interview with the group leader in the morning and in the afternoon HR call me and said I got the job.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – First applied online, then received a phone call interview, then I had to take a behavioral test along with some simple math/logic type questions. Then had to meet with a store team leader. It went well, then had to meet with District team leader. Now I'm just awaiting the final interview later this week with the HR manager and whoever else feels like joining in on it. Silly that they will be asking all these questions again, but hey, Target is successful at what they do, so who am I to doubt their process.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had to make a quick decision based on a lot of new information. Answer Question

Interview Details – I had 3 interviews, currently waiting on a meet and greet with another DM. I was told by one DM that target hires attributes that they can't teach you themselves. With that being said Smile! Show lots of personality! Presentation is everything dress professionally! Be attentive! Good Articulation.
Interview Question –
I found every last question they asked me on this site!! "tell me about a time..." Just be sure to use the STAR method. Tell the situation, the actions you took and remember the results! Always use examples that show your leadership! Be comfortable, and confident, sit up straight, rest your arms on the arm rest if you don't know what to do with your hands so that you appear confident. Try and lead the conversation that puts them in the position to do most of the talking and shows that you are really interested. (Ask most of the questions) OH, have good questions to ask at the end. When you see that they are elaborating on the job and what it offers and side barring that's usually a good sign. Just make the experience a good conversation.
I took the assessment, always answer with strong agree strong disagree! DO NOT tell the truth (sadly) answer as if you were NED FLanders! Ex, No, I dont know thieves( saying you know someone who steals says that you hang with them and you might be one) Yes, I like big crowds! Yes, I like ppl to bother me while I'm working! etc. Stay consistent with your responses. They use a red, yellow, and green method. As long as you are in the yellow and green you're fine.
I was told that salary was 49k-52 for entry level etls. I plan to negotiate ( Look up "the briefcase effect tips on negotiating)

Interview Question – Describe a time when you failed View Answer
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – I received a phone call offering an interview but was driving so I couldn't pick up. By the time I returned the phone call (an hour later), they said that interview spots have been filled up. However, a couple of days later, I received another phone call offering another interview. This time, they gave me a date and time. On the day of the interview, I had two interviews. They pretty much asked the similar questions, nothing too difficult.
Reason for Declining – I booked a trip right after they said that their interview spots were filled up, and they could not wait for me to complete my 3 week vacation.
