    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    They basically take you in the back and you have a few interviews with different people. That's considering you pass the application process. It's pretty laid back. They left me in the office a few times by myself to handle stuff and came back. It wasn't that hard of an interview.

    Interview

    They liked me and scheduled an on campus interview. The interview was one step and fairly straight forward. They had a lot of culture fit and behavioral interview questions. The questions weren't very technical although that may change. Fairly good in terms of time, about an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you create a system (any app platform) that could scale to the needs of the company under peak loads or any other times.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn and he sent me the link to apply. About a week after a phone screen with the recruiter I was contacted by the store manager for an interview. He scheduled 3 interviews for the same day. One with him, with an hr manager and an ETL. He told me that the next day I would have the final interview with an HR business partner. The same day of my last interview I heard from the store team and was offered the position.

    Sales Floor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (Spartanburg, SC).

    Interview

    Relaxed one-on-one interview, very brief. They ask a few questions that are basically inquiring about your work ethic/personality. Nothing to be stressed or tense about, very relaxed setting. It was only my second job and I wasn't too familiar with the interviewing process. They basically put you in a room with one other person that has a printed copy of your application and they review it with you and ask you straight-forward questions, pertaining to the job description.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and didn't get an interview until 3 weeks later. The first interview was pretty quick and then they sent me back out and called me back later for a second interview. This one was a bit longer but the questions were pretty similar. I was called within a week with a job offer. Most of the questions were situational questions.
