    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called for an interview a few days later. The initial interview with the store manager was very easy and only took about an hour to finish. All I had to do was give honest answers about myself and my qualities. The hiring managers really want to get to know you to see how you will fit in the company. So, don't feel shy about shining a light on yourself and what makes you a good person!

    Pharmacist Interview

    Interview Details

    Worked for the company as a pharmacy intern. Received an email to apply with the company for a pharmacist position. Eventually got a call for an interview 2 months later. The interviewer had never interviewed a pharmacy candidate before and essentially my future career with target was based on 4 questions. It was not a pleasant experience like interviewing for my internship was.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is pretty standard. I applied and heard back within two weeks. The interview was very laid back and had textbook behavioral based questions. When I came in to interview, I interviewed in front of two different groups of executives. Both interviews had similar themed questions. My advice would be to save certain responses and personal experience stories because you will be speaking to two sets of people for approximately 20 minutes.

    Cashier Interview

    Interview Details

    Very easy process, typical interview questions. They always do a phone interview first, then schedule an in-person interview for about a week later. The in-person interview didn't take more than 15 minutes and I was offered the job on the spot pending drug test results. There is a high turnover rate (at least at the store I worked at), so they are almost constantly hiring, especially during back to school and holiday seasons.

    • No difficult questions, but they do ask situational questions that make you think a little.   Answer Question

    Met recruiter at a career fair, first interview was fairly easy with simple behavioral questions such as give me a time when you had to build a relationship with a boss. Second interview was pretty much the same, third gave far more complex questions but was structured similarly. The final interview was on site.

    Interview Details

    They just called today. It is interesting how fast this all went. I applied today in the morning and about two hours I'v got a call from them, it was a simple phone interview and as i applied for three positions they asked which one do I prefer. After answering some simple questions we scheduled a second phone interview for tomorrow. Hope this one will go as good as this one today.
