I applied online - interviewed at Target in July 2014.

Interview Details – I did a application and was called the next day for a phone interview! Question s were... Why Are You Interested For Working At Target? What are your experiences that relates to the job? What are your strengths/weaknesses? Scenarios: Describe a time you were part of a team? Name a time you had multiple things to do in a short period of time? Name a time you went above and beyond to meet a customer expectations? Than they schedule you a face to face interview 1-2 days after. They ask you the same questions don't be nervous take your time and answer them the best way you can. You will know if you have the job at the end of the interview. TIP: If you're told we have more applicants to interview you did not get the job but apply again at a different target. GOODLUCK!!!

Ad Set Team Member Interview

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Target in July 2014.

Interview Details – After three reasonable interviews, 1 over the phone and two with members of management, I was called to be given a conditional job offer. I was so excited to say the least. Unfortunately, the offer was only for a cashier position for which I had not even applied for. Very dissapointed to have wasted my time.

Interview Question – How would you handle an angry guest?
Tell me about yourself?
Why would you want to work at Target?
  Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They offer me a position that I was not interested in and had not even applied for. This even after I asked in tbe last interview what position they were interviewing me for! Very dissapointed.

Team Leader Interview

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in October 2011.

Interview Details – I had two interviews. All questions were situation based. What would you do if....? A third grader could pass their interviews. Take your time and be detailed in your answers. Tell them what you did, and then tell them what you learned in that particular situation.

Interview Question – There were no difficult answers. They were silly questions that did nothing to weed out poor performers.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They dont really negotiate. They have a base and want to start you there.

Cashier/Sales Floor Team Member Interview

Cashier/Sales Floor Team Member
Newburgh, NY

I applied online - interviewed at Target in June 2014.

Interview Details – The phone interview was great got asked basic interview questions. When I arrived to the one to one interview I was asked to take a questionnaire before my interview at the target store kiosk. The area where the kiosk was placed was crowded by merchandice that I had to literally squish thru the merchandice to get to the kiosk. When I was done with the questions at the kiosk I waited for another hour to be called by hiring manager for the one to one interview. Once I was being interviewed the manager asked me the same questions I was asked in the phone interview. The hiring manager seemed like he was in a hurry to go home and did not answer questions properly. This was the first interview that was unorganized and inappropriate. They should consider getting a better trained hiring manager.

Interview Question – What can you do to improve them service at Target?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Service and work planning was unorganized
