    Backroom Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cypress, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cypress, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line and then got a call asking if I was still interested in the job and they wanted to schedule a phone interview. I did the phone interview a few days later and then scheduled the in person interview a few days later. At the in person interview, I went to the store I applied for and was led upstairs to the break area to wait. I was then shown a video about the position I was applying and asked to take a test that had some math problems dealing with some graphs and charts. The interview itself was fairly easy. They asked a few questions that I had found out about from reading other reviews here so I had an answer ready for each one. And it also helped that the guy interviewing me was very easy to talk to. And then I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • What are your strengths & weakness? Why do you want to work for Target? Name a time you went above & beyond. Name a time you were part of a team effort. And name a time you made a mistake, what did you do & what was the outcome? And the two Target store questions.   Answer Question

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rogers, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rogers, AR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Target in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a very swift response! Out of all the companies I had applied for, Target was the only one that called me first. On the 3rd day (Tuesday) after I submitted my application I received a phone call and set up an interview time for Friday that week. Once I got there they had my take the assessment test again. It took about 30 minutes for me because the websites was being weird that day. On a normal day it probably would have taken about 15-20 minutes. After that they sent me into the back room/office and I sat there for about 10 minutes. I then had a brief interview (15 minutes tops) which was fairly easy.The interviewer had a great bubble personality that broke the ice quick and was easy to talk to. I then watched a video describing what was expected of a typical Target employee. After that, I sat for another 5 minutes and was then brought into the managers office for a second interview. She was a little more serious but still very easy to talk to. The second interview went smoothly and then right after I was hired as a cafe worker. (Because it would work better with my schedule, and, believe it or not, gets paid more. So it was a win win) They had lots of what-if scenarios. Thanks to Glassdoor I had already prepared for most questions a had read online. I wasn't surprised by anything and was fully prepared for EVERY question.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Target in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online, and less than twelve hours later I received an email from HR scheduling an interview for two days later. I arrived and was brought to the office, and was interviewed first by a sales floor team leader, asking me questions about my availability, personality, and about my previous work experience. I was then immediately offered a second interview with a manager. Many of the questions were the same, with the addition of two of the questions that many of the other reviews for this company talk about. I did very well thanks to them and was offered the job on the spot.
