I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target.
Interview Details –
I was super excited for this interview as I had talked to several Executive Team Leaders (ETLs) at my school's career fair. Every single one was friendly, outgoing and shared a similar positive experience at working with Target. I left the campus recruiter my resume and was contacted about a week later to set up an interview.
At my interview, two different Store Team Leaders interviewed me. One interviewer sat there listening, and the other interviewer asked questions and wrote down my answers. They hardly interacted with me, and when they did, it was to ask follow up questions.
Be prepared to answer behavioral questions. They are nice enough to tell you what to expect/bring when you set up the interview AND before the interview starts.

Negotiation Details – Fresh College Grad, happy to have a job.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in June 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online on the target website. I was worried because I'd never had an on-the-books job before and usually companies don't even look at me However, about two days later, I received a phone call by the HR department and we set up an interview for the next week! I went in for the interview and talked to a couple Team Leads, and it felt more like a conversation than a pressured interview. I was offered the job after talking to the team leads (supposedly I was supposed to watch this video and get asked about it but they goofed on that one) and had to take a urine drug test within 24 hours. Since I passed that, I became a cashier at Target for the summer.
Interview Question – Behavioral questions were awkward since I didn't have a lot of experience, especially when they asked if there was a time where I worked with an unbearable person and how I resolved the situation. They were very patient, so it still was not pressured. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There wasn't really negotiation, they offered an hourly wage of $9 and I happily took it.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Target in November 2013.
Interview Details – The interview process was a nightmare. After getting the run around for a week, they got me in for a second interview, which was face to face. The initial interview was done over the phone. Most of the questions asked during the face to face were "what if" questions. Although I didn't get a job offer, I was kind of relieved. Actually, I know that I was overqualified! The interview process seemed really unorganized and I couldn't even imagine what it would have been like if I got hired. The manager interviewing me mentioned that they had several team members leave so, they were looking to add more cashiers for the upcoming holidays. Hmm, I wonder why!?
Interview Question – I thought the interview were pretty straightforward! Answer Question
