    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Target (Greensboro, NC) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Filled out application, received a phone call to plan interview, had phone interview a week later. Overall, I didn't feel very good about my interview, but I believe that others have felt this way in the past and still got the job. I got the impression that the interviewer was challenging me or expecting me to answer a question "wrong."
