Application Details

The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Target in February 2009.

Interview Details

I submitted my resume and about three weeks later I received a phone call from a manager. She was very pleasant. She gave me a phone interview that was very generic about why applied and so forth. Then she scheduled me for a face to face interview with a colleague. Upon my arrival to the store, I was made to wait for the idiot, I mean interviewer, for over an hour. I should have left. The interview lasted about 20 minutes. Then I never heard from them again.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Target in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I met with Target at my school's career/job fair in the fall of 2011. I spoke with a recruiter and gave them my resume. Shortly after I received an email about an upcoming store tour and information session at the local target in the area. After the tour, interview schedules were discussed and area preferences. I then had my round one interview on campus with the store manager and another team leader who sat and took notes. The interview consisted of basic behavior type questions using the STAR method, Situation, Task, Action you took, and Result. I then was called back for a second round consisting of two interviews back to back again on campus. Same type of questions along with the basic tell me about yourself. Why target? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? After that I was called for a third round phone interview. Same type questions. The whole process was about a month long and in the end I did not receive an offer.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Overall, the interview experience was a mix of IQ tests and Situational analysis. This was my first time ever going through this process. Indeed I learned a great deal about myself and was pleased with the post consultation from the outside agency that conducted the testing. However, I got the feeling that a candidate had been selected and I was being interviewed to simply “check the box.” As for the atmosphere, it was rather stoic for a CPG company – which was a surprise.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from one of Target's talent scouts who scheduled a phone interview with me for the following day. Two days after the initial phone interview I received a call from the HR manager located in a store within my area and a face to face interview was scheduled. This interview consisted of three separate one on one interviews that was conducted by an Assistant Manager, an HR Manager and the Store Manager. All the questions asked were read from a script and all of the managers were cordial and pleasant. After the interview I was scheduled for another interview which was scheduled for the following week. I am still in the process of being interviewed.

    Interview Details

    This process took a long time. There would be weeks before I would move onto the next interview. The interviewing process was somewhat hard. They were looking for people who could think on their feet and could use real life experiences to answer questions. Patience is the key during this process.

And then the final round is at the district office. they like jokes and its part of their culture. Generally I like the people there, but sometimes things are just getting slower.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Company does great at recruiting but for some reason when I went through the interview process that was the end of it. Both of my 1 on 1 interviews at the store location went well but I never did receive the job and wasn't given a reason. I think a lot of companies do the same thing. HR is good at filling the pipeline full of prospects. However, when it comes time to hiring they have to find ways to weed people out. I just wish they would at least give a reason why they didn't decide to proceed with my application. Target isn't the only company that I've experienced this with. I've also experienced this with Home Depot and Walmart. Could it be that is just how the large retail businesses operate? I'm not sure. In any case...Good luck!
