Interview Details – I applied for a seasonal position (it was a month before Thanksgiving and the store has hiring sign when i visited) and got a called for my interview the day after. It was a phone interview during day time. The interviewer called me about half hour after the designated time and we had an interview for about half an hour. The questions were the basic interview questions. Then they talk about the timing and schedule. Email is sent to notify me that I did not get the job.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Target in November 2010.
Interview Details – I received a message on the phone then did a round robin of interviews. Then I went for a drug test. After that came back clean I was given an offer. The process seemed somewhat unorganized and there was not a sense of calm professionalism but rather a rushed and stressful demeanor of the interviewers.

Negotiation Details – There wasn't one. I was in bad straits and took what I could get.

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Target.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target in March 2013.
Interview Details – Target has a ridiculously long interview process. I had one phone pre-screen with an HR recruiter from corporate (Minnesota). Then, I had to complete a 2-hour, online test with personality, logic and math questions. Next, I had a separate phone interview with same HR recruiter, followed by in-person interview with district pharmacy manager. Finally, I had a phone interview with the district store leader (not a pharmacist).
Interview Question – None. If you prepare for situational/behavioral questions using the STAR method and keep your answers specific and concise, you will likely do well. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They gave me more money than I had asked for, so I did not need to negotiate.

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Target in October 2013.
Interview Details – I did an interview on campus initially. Later on I was selected to move on to the second round of interviews! That interview was at a Target district office with a district manager. The first interview I thought had more behavioral questions, whereas the second I thought was more situational.
Interview Question – I can't really remember any crazy out of the box questions, but in terms of the format of the answer they wanted that proved a bit difficult for me. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate the timeline that I had to accept or deny the internship, I was not really able to negotiate salary but they were very generous.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target in February 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online, and was contacted via email by a recruiter within a few days. She conducted a phone interview, which I thought went very well. She then set me up for 2 more interviews, one with a Store Team Leader (essentially a General Manager) and one with a District Team Leader. Both interviews went very well in my opinion. Questions are very situational and range from asking about your leadership capability to your specific performance, strengths and weaknesses. They use a STAR interview style, so make sure to look it up if you don't know what it is.
Anyways, as a Supervisor at Best Buy, I was more than equipped to answer most leadership-related situational questions, and as I said, the interviews seemed to go very well.
In addition to the interview, you will be required to take an online aptitude test. This thing is no joke. It's full questions that intentionally try to trip you up and often presents you with several correct answers, requiring you to choose the most correct. It will take you an hour or more.
In the end, I received a generic email rejection, along with another email stating a job opportunity matching my qualifications had just been opened at Target. It was the exact job I had applied for. This was most upsetting because I am qualified for the job and had pretty good interviews. It would be easier if someone had beat me out for the job, but for them to have a qualified candidate go through the entire interview process just to reject is kind of messed up. Will not be applying for Target again anytime soon.
Interview Question – The District Team Leader asked to explain a time when I failed at something or messed up. What did I do to make it right and what was the result. View Answer
