I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in February 2013.
Interview Details – Phone screen was easy. They basically walked you through how to answer the questions on the phone. They also prepared you for what you would be facing at the on-site interview. On-site interview was tough. I had three rounds of five questions from two different employees (HR personnel and current Group Leaders) lasting 40+ minutes a piece.

There were two interviewers in the room. I felt slightly overdressed in my suit because they were both wearing polos and khakis.
Received a call the following Tuesday inviting me to an on-site interview at the DC in Ontario. The visit consisted of three interviews with the exact same format at the first (5 behavioral questions - "Tell me about a time when..."). All three interviews were 30-40 minutes (2 on 1) with different managers/directors in the plant.
At the end of the week, I was asked to do a final phone interview with the Group Leader director from headquarters. Received an offer 3 days later. Did not accept for location reasons. Absolutely loved everyone I met.

So I took that and the next day she called and said she would like me to have a face-to-face interview. That was for the next week. I went to the distribution center and had panal interviews. There were 3 interviews, 2 people each. They were really nice, and professional. After the interviews, the recruiter called me three hours later to tell me they would like to move to the next step.
