    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Target in September 2014.

    Went through the interview questions thoroughly in September. I answered each one honestly and positively. Have experience in retail and felt I had a good chance at getting a position. Did not hear from them until December and was told in email that they were unable to offer a position at this time. Went into store that day and found they were still hiring for seasonal help. Very confused about the whole process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was on the phone with a recruiter, who just got basic information, covered my resume and asked why I wanted to work at Target. Once I passed that interview, I got a face-to-face interview with 2 different Store Managers, both very similar in nature, asking basic situational questions. After that, the next phase of the interview process was a face-to-face interview with 2 Target District Managers. This was about 45 minutes asking very procedural questions.

    Cafe Team Member - Food Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called by HR two to three weeks later out of the blue. At both Targets I worked at, I did not know anyone that worked there prior to my interview. This was before they did phone interviews, so I was scheduled to meet in-store. They did two one-on-one interviews, the first with one boss and if they like you then you have an immediate interview with a bigger boss afterward. The second boss decides whether or not to make an offer of employment. Each interview consists of the same questions. At my second Target store interview, the second interviewer encouraged me to give the same answers as the first interview in order to be more quick, as he did not care if I repeated myself.

    Interview Questions
    • What was one time you did something even though you were afraid? (Something along those lines)   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. After the second interview, they had papers printed out with the position and pay to be offered. You signed or didn't.
