    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Target in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process took about a week. I applied online and got a call a week later to set up a phone interview for the next day. The interview was with the HR rep for the position's department. Very understanding guy. If I didn't have a answer for a question, he seemed he was ok with that. Not sure if that will affect the outcome. Now I'm waiting for the second phone call for a in-person interview.

    MP Business Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    For the internship, the process was extremely simple. A lot of the questions were behavioral based, so make sure you have concrete and specific examples so the recruiter can learn more about your management and learning styles. After the first round interview you will be asked to complete a basic assessment of math, logical, and verbal questions, and then a second round of more behavior questions will be conducted. The whole process in itself takes about 2 weeks, and I got an offer only a couple of days after my second round interview.

    • Overall, I felt that the process was fairly simple. Just be sure to be concise.   Answer Question
