    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target (Las Vegas, NV) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process took over all around forty five minutes. I was asked questions very similar to the one asked on here. I would recommend at the end of the first interview when they ask if you have questions, ask them "Do you have any concerns about my qualifications for this position?" This allowed the employer to tell me what they think and provided tips on what I should do for the second interview if they pass you. The second interview is the same except more in details. Basically, prepare for the questions, wear the correct outfit and smile, smile smile!

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly normal. I got two in person interviews. both had similar STAR method/Behavior question. Overall it was pretty laid back the interviewers where friendly. reading other interviews on glassdoor helped enormously. they pretty much laid out the whole process. my tip would be to prepare anywhere from 5-7 STAR method success stories you can depend on to answer the majority of the questions. Good luck job hunters

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Target (Orlando, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and within two days I received a phone call to schedule an in person interview. The first interview was simple enough. The person was super nice and friendly made me feel relaxed. At the end he informed me I would get a call for my next interview. The same day I received a call. It was during the second interview were it got difficult. The hiring manger was more intimidating and of course my anxiety chocked me. In the end she said they will call. A week later I got an email saying I did not receive the job. The questions are situational and behavioral like tell me a time...

    Interview

    The interview process was okay I guess. I had to wait for an hour for the interviewer to come see me. She said they were gonna call me back for a second interview,but I doubt since they let me go.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in July 2015.

    Interview

    Process was very straightforward and not invasive. I had both of my interviews on the same day and was hired on the spot. There's not much more to say than that. They called and scheduled a time, I showed up, and got hired. Maybe if you didn't force people to write reviews I would have more to say.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target (Lufkin, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to target online. I received a call weeks later to come in for an interview. They told me on the phone before the interview that if I got the job the starting pay would be $9.00 an hour. I told them that I would like a interview so they scheduled me for a Friday at 4. I went in and asked who I needed to see about an interview that I was scheduled for at 4, they directed me to the office to be interviewed, overall the expirence was good, I was nervous being it was my first interview and most of the questions were situational. A tip, if you know anything about the company such as (what a red card is or how they give back to the community.) you will stirke them as you know about the company and educated yourself about them before the interview. So that makes you well prepared. I did not receive an offer that day but she also told me that since it was a weekend that HR would not be there till Monday to see how my interview went but that if my availability and my answers matched what the other mangers wanted to see/ hear then I would be contacted for another interview.
