    Neutral Experience

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    The hiring process can be quite lengthy with multiple interviews with various leaders. Behavior based interview questions are typically used. Mainly focused on driving results, motivating teams, performance management, team development, strategic thinking, and managing execution. Relocation is a must for higher level positions.

    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    It was very easy going and everyone was very friendly. I got there and I was interviewed by one of the assistant managers, was given a tour of the store, and asked about what department I would like to work in. About a week or so later I got a phone call to come back in to talk about what kind of job I would be working and how long training would be.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, but it was one of my first jobs so I was just happy to be getting paid.

    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Initial application is found online. Before meeting with an interviewer, a second assessment is given at the Target store. Interview consisted of two parts. First part involved a general meeting with one person with HR and the second part involved a different person from HR. Both interviews involved questions regarding availability, customer service, and employment experience. The interview process took about 1.5 hours. An offer was given at the end of the meetings (possibly due to the position being seasonal).

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Target (Orlando, FL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    First they set you up with a phone interview with an HR representative. They ask you a few basic questions to gauge your work skills and interest in the company. After, if the phone interview goes well, they set up an in store interview with an ETL or the STL. As long as this interview goes well, they offer you the position there, and you usually start within a week.

    Interview

    I had done the whole questionnaire and waited maybe 2 weeks and then got an email that I was not accepted the job. Found out that it was possibly because I was too young and not very experienced
