    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a Recruiter. She reached out to be via email a day after I applied online on Target's website. Right after my phone interview, she schedule me to interview with a Team leader in an actual Target store. The recruiter was helpful in that she explained to me what I needed to prepare for the next interview. She sent me a detailed email with what kinds of questions that might be asked and how to prepare for them. If you have the right qualification, the process is quick!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Target (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Went through the referral hiring process. Had one get to know you interview and the second was behavioral based questions. Along with the second interview was a personality and quantitative assessment. You must pass the second interview and both assessments in order to get the last two interviews, which is an all day event at their Corporate headquarters. This consisted of a Business Analyst panel, networking with BA's and Buyers, two interviews with Buyers, and a tour. It takes up to three weeks to hear back.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    interview process was more involved than most with initial phone screen, then another, then one more, then a personal interview with store management. typical questions with no curveballs. it may be different now since their is more pharmacist availability than job opportunities. the interviewers were all very young as is typical of Target so if you understand young personalities you should have little trouble passing the phone screens.
