    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview

    I applied on the 25 of November. I didn't hear anything back so I called on the 3rd of december asking about it and she took my name and said someone would call that week. The monday after I got a call and the Hiring manager asked if we could do a phone interview. I did the phone interview and she asked me stuff like strengths and weakness's, why I want to work for Target, a time I worked as a team pretty basic questions. Also asked about Availability. She also mentioned to me about another position and if i would be interested. I said it might be something i would be interested but would prefer the one I applied for. (which is probably where I went wrong and why I didnt get an offer) I got an email a few days later saying they couldn't offer me a position at this time.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time you went above what was asked of you. (this isn't the exact question but it was basically what it asked) I had prepared with others reviews on glassdoor which helped alot.   Answer Question

I interviewed with the Store Team Leader. He was very friendly, asked to tell him about myself, why I wanted to work there, and then a few Situation based questions. After the interview he said they would be in touch.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Interview process is lengthy. Interviewed with ~ 7 different people. Interview is based on SAR questions. Situation, Action, Results. Ex. Tell me about a time that you had to do multiple things in a short period. The key here is to focus on the actions. Target wants to know that you know how to explore and use your resources, that you take partners and work with a sense of urgency. The other key is use a real specific example, not broad ambiguous examples. Use people, places and names.

    Interview Questions

    • all very similar questions. Just be prepared with multiple different examples.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Target (Harrisonburg, VA).

    Interview

    Interview process is structural. You interview with the department (or Executive TL) manager first and then with Store TL (or Store Manager). I believe the new hiring process after 2012 also has you interview with the District Manager as well. Be prepared because they do grill you on facts of the company mission and sales for the department youre interviewing for.

    Interview Questions

    • None. A lot of the questions are retail based and if you have enough experience in retail, most of it should be logical.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They don't negotiate salary but give you an upfront hourly rate. But I had not much experience when I had interviewed. I'm sure its based on experience as well when they are willing to negotiate with you.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target in July 2014.

    Interview

    Went through three interviews and received a generic "thank you for applying, but" letter. After three interviews, I think that you should receive an actual phone call from the store manager that you interviewed with.

    Interview Questions

    • Generic, situation questions. Nothing to out of the ordinary.   Answer Question
