Human Resources Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online - interviewed at Target in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for the position online. About two weeks later I received a phone call to schedule a phone interview on the same day. After the phone interview, I met with the Human Resources Supervisor. I had to fill out a questionnaire on the kiosk prior to the face-to-face interview.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for Target? The supervisor also asked two situational questions, asking about what would you do if a product was not in stock? How would you handle a guest at checkout if a product rang up as one price & they said it was another?   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Human Resources Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online - interviewed at Target in June 2012.

Interview Details – There was a total of 3 Interviews. The first was with a Team Lead who asked you a series of Situation type questions, all which I had previously researched here prior, so do your homework and be ready with your answers. The second was with the HR Manager who also asked you similar questions. Lastly, I came back to interview with the Store Manager. That was much more informal and where it got more personal. This is the part where you can tell them more about yourself etc.

Interview Question – Please tell me a couple of your best qualities, and a couple things that need improvement.   Answer Question
