I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – Was referred for the position by a friend. Completed 5 interviews that focused on leadership experience and skills. Each interview was pretty similar to the next in format, though questions did get slightly more in depth as you progress.

Overall, took almost 2 months to complete the process and another 3 weeks to begin training. Everyone was super nice and personable and was very informative when I asked for information more information along the way. That is the key though: you have to ask! Otherwise they'll just leave you out of the loop and make critical decisions about your job and location etc without you even knowing. Still not sure if this is intentional or not.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you received feedback you weren't expecting and how you handled it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – very little room for negotiation

Kansas City, KS

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in October 2013.

Interview Details – I was emailed about next day interviews at my campus. The first interview was simply answering PAR (Problem, Action, Result) based questions about 6 questions. After I passed the first interview I was emailed a questionnaire that has many situations and asks you what you would do. It takes about 2 hrs. The second interview lasted 30 mins and had 6-7 questions like the first. Third interview was the same as the second. Last interview was a phone interview with the area coordinator big shot that lasted 30 mins long, with 5-6 questions. The last interview they ask about your GPA. I was emailed two days later with a generic email saying I did not get the job.

Interview Question – When was a time that you made a mistake and how did you go about fixing it?   View Answer

Interview Details – Over the phone screening. Asked about job experiences, strengths, weakness, etc. The typical things that you get asked during a preliminary screening. The most difficult question is finding your faults and making them not sound horrible.Simply didnt have the experience for the job or to properly answer the recruiter's questions. Make sure you are properly prepared and truly believe that you are right for the job.
