Interviewed at Target
Interview Details – The interview process was a very good one. The interview itself was based on behavioral type questions, "Tell me about a time when..." and so forth. The person interviewing me was an actual Store Team Leader and was engaged the whole time. Sounds like there is a lot of opportunity for advancement within the company.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you made a mistake and had to make up for it? Answer Question
I applied through college or university - interviewed at Target in April 2013.
Interview Details – Moved through fairly easy on-campus interview with two local store leads. Mostly behavioral questions, "tell me about a time when..." Next round of interviews was with a District Manager. Interview was extremely fast, again behavioral questions, but the manager seemed very disinterested like I was wasting his time.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you did something wrong and how did you recover from that situation. Answer Question

Interview Details – The hiring process started with a career fair for me where you were introduced to the area college recruiter from there you give them your resume and have a small interview. If they like you they set you up with an interview at a store. from there I had a phone interview and then another final phone interview. Long process, lasted way to long but it was worth it.

I applied through college or university and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – I found out about the position at a career fair put on by my university - there, I handed my resume to a recruiter and received a phone call asking for an interview time.
I then filled out and submitted my online application.
The first round of interviews was with a young woman, she asked a list of situational/behavioral questions ("tell me about a time when..."). She was chipper and friendly and told me that they would like me back for a second interview, which was about a week later.
The second interview was much of the same format, this time with two people, a young woman and an older man who was higher up in management. Same thing, the questions were clearly from a set list but the man asking them was fairly relaxed and informal, would ask follow-up questions to get to know you, joked around, etc.
A couple weeks after that I received an email asking me to fill out an online assessment and that I made it to the final round of interviews, a phone interview with a Senior Group Director.
The assessment was half personality questions ("co-workers would describe me as ___") which were not timed and half math/logic problems that were timed ("name the next number in the sequence, etc."). There were many more questions than were possible to complete int he allotted time so you were scored on how many you could complete too.
The final interview was with a man who seemed supremely disinterested. After my very long responses, he would have an extended pause, and say "ok". That was it, no more and no less - and curiously, he gave me no opportunity to ask questions afterwards.
Interview Question – "Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a conflict between two groups in a leadership position".

Interview Details – Initial communication was at my university's career fair. Had an interview at my school the following day -- very friendly recruiter, easy questions.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – Phone interview first, told immediately I was moved onto next round. Second interview was a one on one setting. 4 interviews total.
Recruiters are friendly and easy to work with, though sometimes were very delayed on responding to emails/phone calls in between interviews.

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Target in February 2012.
Interview Details – Online pre-screen before the interview. Interview was conducted on campus and part of campus recruiting. The interview was behavioral and consisted of two interviewers reading the questions right off the sheet. Both interviewers were very nice and easy to relate to, however did not seem excited about their jobs.

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Target.
Interview Details – The whole interview was situational questions. For each question they asked for the situation, how you handled it, and what the outcome was. Pretty straight forward interview.
Interview Question – A time when I made a mistake and what I did about it. Answer Question
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in February 2012.
Interview Details – The interview process started with a brief personality test that was sent to me via e-mail when they confirmed my phone interview slot. They asked for me to fill this out prior to my phone screen. The phone screen from the HR recruiter happened about a week after the initial contact. She asked basic behavioral questions such as "Tell me about a time when you took on a leadership role" or "Tell me about a time when you had to deal with confrontation". Very basic questions. Target seeks for leadership capabilities and asks questions to highlight those skills.
I was then asked to meet with the District Manager who asked me a lot of the same behavioral questions but also more about my future plans etc. This is where they really wanted to see a passion to grow with Target.
Everyone during the interview process was very nice which made the process enjoyable.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Target in June 2011.
Interview Details – Normal internship interview: one interview with a store leader and another with a district leader on a different day
Negotiation Details – No negotiation: all interns got paid $14.00 an hour.
