    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Target in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an online interview and received a call a couple days later to set up a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 20-30 minutes and asked some very basic questions of background and interest. They also asked some generic leadership questions. If you pass that you they will ask you,on the call, if you will be willing to come in for a sit down interview. It usually is within the week. In the sit down you will have three half hour interviews. In each interview their will be two people interviewing you. Follow the interviews they will let you know within two to three days if you are offered or not.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was a cashier so I was promoted within but there is another GSA that was hired as such just before me. It was one interview with the ETL and one interview with the HR TL. The questions were all customer service driven and about your ability to motivate others to meet goals. Just focus on your ability to meet goals, motivate others to meet their goals and lead in providing a great customer service experience.

    I applied for the position and was contacted by HR. You interview with multiple higher level managers. The questions themselves are pretty routine, but each interviewer has a different set. They're all "Tell me about a time" questions. So have a 5 - 10 stories about experiences you had working or in school (for new grads) that you can relate to different facets of leadership. The questions are all organized around Target's leadership qualities, so each question is supposed to help determine if you have these qualities.
