Cashierr Interview

Cashierr

Interviewed at Target

Interview Details – I arrived at a hotel where i was greeted by people who were working for Target. They were very friendly and led me to the waiting room. I was then called for my first interview, and it went well. They introduced themselves and then asked me to do the same. They asked me questions in english and french. He was a very friendly guy and I thought the interview went well. I was then called for a second interview and this process was not as great as the first. He didn't seem as friendly and wasn't as enthusiastic. If i didn't get the job, it was probably because of my second interview.

Interview Question – Name one mistake and how you fixed it   Answer Question
