Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

Interview

I had a phone interview. He was super nice, and polite. Found a time that worked for me, and called almost on the dot. I met with Target at a career fair, they asked if I could interview the next day, but I said I was busy, and they had no problem setting up a phone interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Campus recruiting interview process. Interviewed with two interviewers, one district manager and one store manager. Interview lasted for about 45 minutes. Basic Questions for the interview were asked: what are your skills/weaknesses/describe your leadership/what type of leader are you. The interview was really easy and laid back. Target really is looking for someone that fits their culture and can transition onto a team easily.Overall experience was great.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I made a candidate profile and then was contacted by a recruiter about the Executive Team Leader Position. The first phone interview was basic questions about yourself and why you want to work for target as well as some questions about your past experience. All of the interviews started with "Tell Me About Yourself" and then some form of "Why Target?" Then all of the questions for the second interview were situational and needed to be answered with the STAR approach (Situation, Task, Action Taken, Result). There was time for questions at the end so I got to ask some things about the job and Target. Interviews were pretty broad and general questions. As long as you prepare and know what you want to say before the interview there should be no issues or surprises.
