Interview Details

The initial contact was through a University's Career services to attend an Open House. Target employees gave attendee's a tour and then all had time to speak with them one on one. The next step was to apply online and wait.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Behavioral Interview Questions. Ex. Tell me about a time when you had to overcome an obstacle. They want you to answer exactly in the following format. SPECIFIC situation, how you handled the situation, then what the results were. A lot of interviewees don't give a specific time, but rather what they would do if that situation came up. Wrong! Also, a lot of people never give the results. What happened? Did sales increase, you get an A in the class, etc.?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    4 interviews- one with a general recruiter, then an HR rep both over phone. Then they bring you in for a formal in person interview (which in my case probably was the most influential interview , so definitely stand out here). Then, finally another phone interview to cap off their decision making process with another important Target director. I applied early May and got a call around a month later to begin the process so don't lose faith after you apply. The process lasted around 2.5-3 weeks after initially being consulted. You have to take an assessment also and the only difficult portion was the reasoning (I.e. If bob
    Goes here at 5 and Sally left after Greg, etc then what can be deduced from this given info) really annoying to tackle but deal with it if you want the job. The questions were the scenario based "tell me a time when" and sometimes repeated between interviews. Give clear examples and show confidence and stress leadership and handwork. Also, teamwork is vital. Just look up target interview questions online I can almost guarantee they'll be pretty similar. It's like a grab bag

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially contacted the company through a campus recruiting event, about a week later they reached out to me for an on-campus interview. The campus recruiter showed a lot of interest and really tried to sell the company. Maybe about one more week passed after the campus interview, and I was advised I would be contacted by a store and a district manager. All the questions that were asked were situation-based. As an international student at the time, the interview with the district manager went a little bit differently, and her main focus was on whether or not I would need sponsorship.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Target interviews were very thorough. I went through four total interviews not making it to the last one. The process took about a month. I first interviewed with a senior recruiter who was screening to see if I met all the basic qualifications. Then she set me up for a full phone interview a week later which covered behavioral questions. After passing that interview round, I was interviewed by the Store Team Leader and then District Team Leader for that area.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consists of four interviews. It's a long process of several weeks and the questions at each interview are all behavioral question. I have a very positive experience, the recruiter gave me feedback to improve my interview skills by being concise, keep the answers to their questions for at most 2.5 minutes. Make sure you give them the situation, your behavior, and then the outcome.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected behavioral question: explain a time when your long-term goal changed something you did every day. I used a personal example and that was fine. It does not all have to be professional.   Answer Question

    Initial phone conversation with Recruiter, phone interview with Store Team Leader, in-person interview with Store Team Leader and District Team Leader, job shadow with ETL, and final phone interview with Senior Group Director and HR Market Lead. The interview process took me a long time--two months. Everyone I interviewed with was very friendly and informative--they all seemed to like their jobs.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Applied and was contacted by HR via phone within one week for a pre-interview. Advanced to 2 back to back 1:1 interviews. Strong team culture was evident and staff appeared very comfortable around each other. However, interviews were conducted seriously and were straight to the point. Interviewers prompted for specific answers that followed a certain format of situation-behavior-outcome. Basically, the office environment is set up to put candidates at ease but the actual interview process itself is more rigid, allowing little room for conversation.
