    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Target (Ashburn, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Took about 45 min I had to wait quite a bit between the interviews both of which were 10 min each. They like specific answers to the scenarios but didn't mind if you took a min to think. Don't be nervous and just answer the questions as best as you can, its very lax.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Target (Greensburg, PA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and then I called as soon as I finished to let the head of H.R. know that I had done so. She said it usually takes a day for applications to show up and that she would call back the next day. I didn't receive a call so I called the next day (day 3, lol). I gave her my name and she tried to look me up but it turns out my application hadn't even been sent to the store. I applied again as soon as I got off the phone and called her back right after I finished. She set up an interview on the following Tuesday. I was interviewed by Jamie and then again by Adam. After that the head of H.R. came in and offered me the job. I started that Friday. I had a really pleasant interview experience (aside from my application getting misplaced, lol).

    Interview

    Applied online (Saturday Night), I received a phone call on Monday asking if I was available to interview on Wednesday. When I got there, I had 2 separate interviews both lasting between 15-20 minutes. Both interviews were 1 on 1. The interviewers were very friendly. The 2nd interview, I'm not sure if it was done on purpose or not. But it started with me following the interviewer walking through part of the store with him asking me questions. When we got to his office, he started asking me questions from the interview sheet. One that was all done, I was offered the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Target (Colorado Springs, CO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Was put in a conference room with another applicant. He was called for the interview right away, came back after 10 minutes and had another interview with another manager. They made me wait almost an hour, then I had my so called interview with lots of questions like: Tell me about yourself, tell me about a time when you had to resolve a conflict, tell me about a time when you had to change your attitude etc. Person who did the interview had no personality at all, and seemed to hate her job. I was told they would give me a call with instructions for the next step of the interview process. Needless to say, I'm sure I'll never hear from them again. Not too keen on working there anymore after meeting her anyway.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (National City, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly easy, I went through 3 different interviews, all in the same day and was offered the job almost immediately. My specific location made the process seemed very rushed but informed us applicants that the position would be part time and only offered 12 hours a week. I assumed they informed us about this right away incase applicants wanted to leave instead of wasting time.
