Management
Canton, MI

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Target in January 2010.

Interview Details – I was called and given a phone interview. I was then emailed a link to complete a personality test. I was then called back to schedule a 1:1.

The 1:1 interview was held in a small office with no windows. I interviewed with two store managers, then with two regional managers. There were no questions about previous work experience, only questions about what I've done in certain situations. There was no way to speak about how you would help the company or how your skills would transfer.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in October 2011.

Interview Details – I attended a Career Fair through campus and left my resume. I was contacted a week later through an email telling me that if I was still interested, they would like to meet with me at a local cafe. It was a very casual meeting, hardly an interview, I might add. It was more of a meet and greet. It was an opportunity for me to tell them about my interests and a chance for me to learn about what I may be getting into.

The process took a day - interviewed at Target in October 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was straight forward, but I was not told that I would have multiple interviews on the same day. I literally went from one to the next, which I wasn't prepared for. Additionally, I was not told that I would receive an email that I needed to respond to as part of the process. I overlooked it due to high volume in my inbox, and did not notice it until I received an email saying that I was not being offered the position.

Interview Question – I was asked a variety of behavioral based questions regarding past experiences.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target in October 2010.

Interview Details – Met with Store Leader, that was painless. Then after two weeks was scheduled for my first of three interviews, interview is based wholly on behavioral questions. Should be interesting, will return with experience soon.
