Retail Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – It was fairly simple and straightforward. However, didn't get the job because I was seasonal. I would rather they not waste my time nor I waste theirs. I think it went well though. If you aren't seasonal, seem responsible, and have prior work experience with good references, there is no reason why you shouldn't get this job.

Interview Details – University Job fair. Doing tons of questions before the interview. The 1st during the interview is do you need a sponsorship to work for Target. I said yes(as international student). Then the interviewer told me to be prepared that I will not get the position because of the sponsorship. I think i did not get the offer because of that.
