Interview Details – A fairly average interview process. My job interview lasted more or less 45 minutes, and consisted of 2 separate interviews with two separate team leaders. The questions asked were pretty common, and none seemed out of the ordinary. Although it seemed weird that base pay was never mentioned, until a team leader gave me a piece of paper, and said "We've just hired you, and this will be your pay rate."

Interview Details – Being hired at Target will depend on who the Human Resources and Store Team Lead persons are. Most WILL make the store into what philosophy they follow. Some HR folks will overlook more qualified folks in order to fill unsaid quotas or personal agendas. Knowing someone at the Target you want to work at WILL HELP. Hiring straight off the street is not too common unless it is for the Christmas season.
Interview Question – One trait that will help is enjoying working with the public in a retail environment. If you don't like to help difficult or angry people, don't work at Target. Obviously, Target is a for-profit focused company - if you turn people away from shopping there, you won't have a job. The more people that shop at your particular store, the more hours you will get and the longer you will keep your job. Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied at Target and was quickly called in for an interview. Upon arriving at the interview I had to fill out a quick questionaire and take a fairly easy test. If I would have known I would have been waiting for someone for so long I would've taken more time on the test. After about 10 to 15 minutes standing by customer service looking like an idiot finally an assistant manager came to take me into the back and do a 1 on 1 interview. The questions were fairly easy mostly situational and behavioral questions I thought I did awesome. I had to wait almost 20 minutes before I got my 2nd interview with the actual manager of logistics. Same type of questions and I felt I did pretty awesome. He informed me that they would be calling me within the next week to let me know whether I got it or not. I never heard back from them.
