    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Target (Schaumburg, IL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    First I filled out the online questionnaire. Then I received a phone call with a few ballpark questions, then came in for a sit-down with a manager. I was offered to interview for a manager position actually, but was just looking for a temp job between school. The entire process was fairly straightforward and down to earth. They needed people to handle the extra Christmas rush, I could handle that for them.

    It was a two person interview, one at a time. Those who interviewed me were friendly and allowed me plenty of time to answer the questions they asked me. They could tell that I was nervous but did not hold it against me. Their positive attitude helped me feel confident in responding to the questions and in return ask them questions about the company and the position I was applying for.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Target (Fontana, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    All interview questions can be found online. They are behavioral questions, so they want to see how you react and what your scope is. The first step is a phone screening. If you do well on this, then you will have an interview with the recruiter. From there you will interview with either an ETL or STL from a store. If you get their approval, you will interview with the DTL. The next step is a "meet and greet," which is basically your job offer!
