    Flow Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winona, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winona, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by telephone a few days after submitting my application. I ended up going in for two interviews, and was given paperwork for a drug test at the end of the second interview. After my drug test came back negative, they called me and set up my orientation.

    Interview Questions
    • They had me interview one-on-one with three different people; it was all pretty straight-forward. The most difficult question was probably "what is your biggest weakness?" This was my first job interview, so I didn't really know what to expect and that one caught me off-guard.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Was highered right on the spot. Had 2 small interviewers and 1 meet with the leader of the area I will be working at. I'm almost certain that I got hired for having an open availability, but then get 20 hours 2 weeks in advance pre-scheduled hours. The hours are so random and all over the place, time will only tell.

    Sales Floor Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    First spoke to them at my university's job fair. They started of by telling me to talk about myself, literally an interview to see if you are capable of communicating efficiently. After the woman saw I described myself and my life well enough, she sent me to another woman where she greeted me and we worked on establishing an interview date. 2 weeks later, at the interview they asked me, again, to talk about myself, then they asked me behavioral questions, like what did you do when you had a certain issue at work, how did you handle it, or what if you have to get something done on time, you are way behind and its due the next day, what would you do? then the interviewer talked about his role, his life with target, and finally asked me if I had any questions, you should have some questions ready for them. Also, he asked me about my gpa, my past job, what my current salary was. (which you do NOT have to answer) because they are going to use it against you afterwards.

    Executive Store Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I met the recruiter at the career fair and loved Target instantly! She seemed super friendly and interested in what I had to say. I had an interview set up and the STL who interviewed me was awful. She was not interested in what I had to say, did not ask me any questions, and not to mention slouched in her chair or bothered to stand up to shake my hand after the interview. I could not care less if I don't get asked back for a second round... This was the most awkward and unprofessional interview.

    Interview Details

    Very professional process. First had phone screen with recruiter - mostly administrative and employment fact-based, with one or two "tell me about a time..." questions. Recruiter was pretty thorough in describing the role, and shared good insights about the latest environment at Target.

    Interview Details

    It was very easy going and everyone was very friendly. I got there and I was interviewed by one of the assistant managers, was given a tour of the store, and asked about what department I would like to work in. About a week or so later I got a phone call to come back in to talk about what kind of job I would be working and how long training would be.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, but it was one of my first jobs so I was just happy to be getting paid.
