I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Target (Los Angeles, CA).
There were two one on one interviews, one with a tech, and one with the pharmacist. It was pretty casual. The tech asked me the usual interview situational questions. But their emphasis was really on knowing classifications of drugs and how to interact with customers. Also included a typing speed test.

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Target (Palmdale, CA) in June 2015.
The initial interview was short. Their computer system did not allow me to take a "second assessment" that I was supposed to take in the store. I had to wait about 30 minutes to begin interview.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Target (West Hollywood, CA) in June 2015.
Always extremely late and never took my time into consideration. They forced me to wait an hour and a half for the in-person interview, only to have me sit down for five minutes with a 24-year-old girl who didn't even look at me while asking the questions. I'm positive this is because I don't have any retail experience, so she wrote me off before the interview began. When I said I have made coffee at an office before she perked up and said "would you like to work at the Starbucks??" and I said "not that kind of coffee"... Plus, I was the only person dressed up at the interview. A guy wearing a hoody and another guy wearing jeans and sneakers went further in the process than I did. They made me wait for the same amount of time for the phone interview and they changed the schedule multiple times. Why make me do that if you won't even consider me anyway????

Applied online and was then contacted a month later. Interview was schedule one week after being contacted. Two tests taken beforehand (one after applying) and one before first interview. Two interviews. First interview was scheduled at 9 am but had to wait more than 45 minutes before someone came to talk. Interview was about half an hour. Was then contacted for another interview. There were similar questions.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Target (Seal Beach, CA) in June 2015.
The interview was brief and simple. It was one on one with the softline supervisor and she was very friendly. The interview took around ten minutes. I was told I would get an email in a week to see if i did or did not get the job. I never got an email. Just go over ghe questions on here and u sbould be fine.

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Target (Redondo Beach, CA) in May 2015.
Applied and received a call regarding my application only a week later. They left a message and I called back and was offered an interview early Monday morning. Got to target before it opened so I rang the doorbell at employee entrance. Was greeted and led to a bench to sit and wait. Was lead through the break room/ offices to a training classroom setting where I watched a quick less than 5minute video about what the back room job looked like. Was then taken to an office and interviewed with not HR but instead two members of the overnight team (I think I was supposed to interview with HR but she wasn't available). My interviewers seemed more nervous than me. I made it comfortable by offering small talk while I filled out paper work. They asked me about myself and then a number of situational questions. They gave me time to answer, but coming up with answers on the spot was sometimes hard. Full interview was probably 30mins. Left feeling alright, if anything I thought my not so open schedule would be a problem. I got a call back the next day and was offered the job at $9.75/hr pending my background check. Will go to orientation once the bg check goes through. HR that called to offer was really friendly.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Target (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.
Met through a campus recruiting event. Got an interview the week after. Second interview was set up a week after that. Was sent an email that I wasn't offered the job, however was left confused when they left a voicemail asking for a followup call. When i did follow up they never called back. Also was called for another interview at a separate location. Nice interviewers. Confusing process.

Helpful (1)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Target (La Habra, CA) in April 2015.
Was very lengthy but they make you feel comfortable through the entire process. I had 5 interviews, one was an intial screening, the next was with an STL and ETL, the next was with another ETL, the next was with a DTL, and the final was with an HR market leader. They ask you behavioral questions. All of the interviews asked me to tell a little about myself as well as why I want to work for Target. They give you all the info you need to prepare for the interview, and after each interview, I was actually told, you're moving on to the next round so there was no suspense. They either like you or they don't. Once I had my final interview with the HR market leader, about 2 hours later I received an email from initial HR person with a job offer. Salary was more than what I asked for and the benefits were ideal. I accepted the position immediately.
