    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Target in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    First receieved a call from a very enthusiastic manager saying I would be called for a phone interview the following week. When I did the phone interview I spoke with another enthusiastic and very sweet woman. The interview process was easy and very laid back. She then said she wanted me to come in for an in person interview. I was told I was interviewing for a job that was a step down from team lead and the pay would reflect that. I assumed that meant it would be more than minimum wage. When I went in for the in person interview the woman seemed confused and offered me the job on the spot but at a rate far less than I even expected, only a couple cents above minimum wage for what I thought was a managerial type position. Total waste of my time.

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay rate was not what I expected or led to believe. I was honestly insulted with my past retail experience.

    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I had to go through 3 interviews; first one being on the phone and 2 in person. All are situational questions that are described as "star interview questions." I was asked what are my strengths and weaknesses, a lot of "tell me about a time..."

    Just be relaxed. They are normal interview questions, but Target wants you to succeed. So take a big breath and just let your personality shine. They love personable people. I even had to ask the District Team Lead (big boss man) to repeat himself and re-word the question he was asking me because I was so nervous. He was completely okay with it and I received an offer. They did not tell me right away if I was offered the job or not. I had to wait a few more days for an offer and had 24 hours to go take a drug test. Once that came back negative, I was put into a training class a week later.

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    i applied online and i got a call for an interview about a month later. the interview was okay, it wasn't too hard. i was very nervous though because it was my first interview ever. i interviewed 1:1 with 2 different people. the first person was a bit in depth and the second person was more of a formality, i guess. the interviews with the people took about 5-10 minutes each, but they made me wait about 30-45 minutes to see each interviewer.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Applied to target online got a phone call maybe a week later to schedule a phone interview a few days after. Phone interview was short, simple, and pretty stupid. Took literally maybe 5 minutes to ask pretty generic questions that are impossible to get wrong. Got told I passed after that interview and was scheduled an in person interview with an ETL a few days later. The in person interview was exactly the same as the phone interview. Got hired on the spot. Went to HR to fill out paperwork, get my orientation date, and was told to submit a drug test withing 24 hours or I will be terminated. I did so that same day and my orientation was a month and some later.

    Interview Questions
    • What can you offer Target?
      How would you respond to an upset customer?
      If a customer wants a price change and it is reasonable do you say no or give it to them? (this is a big one target is strict about adjusting prices if a guest challenges you as long as in reasonable price range like $15 instead of $20)
      Are you able to work at a fast-pace?
      Etc.

    I got less than what minimum wage was and could not negotiate it. Really ridiculous but I needed the job and at that time though Target was the best thing to ever happen to me so I took it.
