Interview Details

I was turned down without even being given an interview. I filled out the application in store, was told to wait for a manager to come out, the manager came out and said they didn't want to hire me for the position I applied for. Instead they wanted to know if I'd apply for a cashier position instead which I declined.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    It was intimidating when the interview started. A group of about 20 people including myself took the basic math and situation written test then went to another room and waited to be interviewed. The first manager who interviewed me was nice and asked situational questions ( describe a time you did something you had no experience with ) and then I was interviewed by a second manager who asked similar questions. She was impressed with me because I had a resume to hand her, I answered every single question she asked and when she asked me why I had no previous work experience I told her that you need to get a job to have experience and she liked my answer. It took them months to actually hire me because of mistakes on their end and I had to retake the initial drug test as well as fill out another application online.

    Name your strengths and Weaknesses.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Target in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    After submitting an application online, 2 days later I received a call setting up a phone interview. This consisted of standard personality and experience questions. Two days after this interview I received another call setting up an in-person interview. This interview was basically them asking if I was able to physically handle the job, what type of personality I had, and what experiences I had that would help me with this job. This interview went well, they asked me to wait a few minutes, then the HR person came out and asked to speak with me in her office. She offered me the job immediately.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Target in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had to go in at 9:30 Pm and do a questionnaire on the computer. Then I was given interview which were about 7 behavioral questions. The interviewer explained to me in great detail about getting merchandise to the floor and the system that they use. So I was told that I will be getting a phone call within the next couple days. I waited and never received a phone call, so I checked my email and saw that I didn't get the job.
