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

Interview Details – I did the hiring process through my college at a career fair. It consisted of a small chat with the ETLs (managers) and then an on campus interview with an STL (Store Team Leader). Afterwards, I heard back in a few weeks for an interview with the DTL (District Team Leader). Afterwards, I had a quick phone interview.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Target in March 2014.

Interview Details – Went through 4 interviews. 2 were over the phone. These were only about 10 minutes long each. The first interview was with a campus liaison from my school. The second interview was from district campus liaison rep. These interviews were really easy. They just asked questions about why you wanted the job and mostly just information on getting to know you. I was given an over email assessment that lasted about an hour in between the 2nd and 3rd interview. The third interview I had was with a store team leader which lasted for about 30 minutes. A lot of behavioral type questions. She was really easy to talk to and had a great interview experience with her. The final interview was with a district manager that lasted only about 20 minutes. Once again, behavioral type questions were asked. One or two were repeats from previous interviews... but he also threw in some new ones. He didn't seem too excited about interviewing me and only gave me three questions. I was fed mixed information after the interview. They gave me a drug test package in the case I received a job offer. The district manager told me that the district liaison rep would contact me in 2-3 days and his receptionist told me that someone would contact me in about a week. About a week and a few days passed and I received no response, so I emailed the district manager receptionist to just make sure I should still anticipate a phone call or email. The next day I got an email from HR saying that I did not get the job. Overall, the experience was very weird. I feel like the process was kind of disorganized and of course disappointing.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you had time give up something to do something else.   View Answer

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Target in March 2014.

Interview Details – Went to college career fair and they called me within one week. Set up an interview and the questions were 100% behavioral. They are friendly, but definitely want to get the most out of you.

I found the interview process to be open and welcoming and they definitely seemed like they wanted to be there. Have the STAR technique in hand… Situation, Task, Action, and Result. They want to know how you overcame a difficult challenge and show cased leadership.

Interview Question – "How did you handle a situation where you were under pressure" "name time when you provided excellent customer service".   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target.

That interview went very well and I was moved onto the final interview with a regional manager. That interview was structured exactly the same, regarding the behavioral based questions.

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – I applied online and then was selected for one of their on campus interviews. The interview was one on one for about 30 minutes were you were asked questions like "Tell me about a group project you worked on" and "Why do you want to work here?" Pretty standard interview questions. After the interview you had to complete an online test with SAT type math questions, I thought that was odd. After about a week I was not selected to move on.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you knew made a mistake and what did you do to correct it.   Answer Question
