    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Pedro, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Pedro, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an online app to receive a call to attend a hiring opportunity two days later with less than twenty-four hour notice. I arrived at around 7:50am for the appointment that was at 8:00am. I was asked to fill out a questionnaire by returns in a little booth with a computer. Once me and two others finished that we were told to head to the pharmacy and go through the door on the right of it. They showed us a short two minute video about what working the sales floor of Target was all about, kind of weird since we were all here for overnight backroom stocking which meant we did not have to work with customers; the third male that was there was actually applying for an HQ position so even more baffling. After that it was around 9am we were all one by one taken out of the breakroom they left us in to be interviewed. The interview was very short and pretty simple even though most questions could not apply to me as I had not worked and they did not like any answers regarding school it seemed. Only about five questions were asked. She asked if I had any questions after she explained how the position I was applying for worked and if I was still interested. I was still interested and had asked around three or four questions regarding the position. She then led me back to the breakroom with the others who had came back before me to await another interviewer. At this time it may have been around 9:30am and they proceeded to leave us there for about an hour with no check up or anything. We had thought they had forgotten we were even there. Around 10:30am were finally interviewed once more, my second interview was very similar to the first except I was a lot less comfortable as I had been starving since the first interview concluded and had lost a lot of focus being there for about three hours being asked only roughly five questions. We concluded the interview and had asked me if I had any questions as the first interviewer did. I told him I did not as I had already asked all of them with the first interviewer not knowing we were going to be interviewed twice. He told me he and others would review my resume and what I had said in my interviews and give me a call. Around two days later I received an e-mail roughly around 3am thanking me for my interest but they could not offer me a position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Target in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    So I applied online & two days later I got a call to set up an interview. On the phone she asked me about my availability & if it would stay that way during the summer. I said yes and she proceed to schedule me an interview in 3 days.

    I arrived at Target at 8:50 am only to realize that I had driven to the wrong target (Although I had applied at that one).
    Any who, I got to the Target I needed to be & was led to the waiting area where there was two girls there already.
    We literally waited 1 hr 30 mins to get interviewed. After the second girl got interviewed and sat back down, the guy that was interviewing us went to go eat so I had to wait 10 more minutes for him. I was so annoyed.
    Then my turn finally came and I thought I did well, like he understood me. The last question I got mixed up and kept saying "uhm, uhm." So I blew it but overall I did well I think... or so I thought.

    Executive Store Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Target's interview was not stressfull at all. I applied online after hearing about their program form a campus recruiter. They were fairly prompt in contacting me about the phone interview and emailed me with directions. I prepared myself by gathering information about the company as well as the internship program, which seemed to impress the recruiter. They set up the second interview on the same day. Finally, they conducted a third interview with the HR manager over the phone and I got the job offer that very same day. Overall, the interview experience was pretty good. All the employees as well as recruiters and managers are very friendly and welcoming.

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Pedro, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    The process took a long time. While the initial interviewing process was done within 2 weeks, it took them almost a month to let me know when my orientation date was. They then called me in and told me that the orientation was the next day. This did not give me much time to move around my schedule for this new position. It was very unprofessional and inconvenient.
