Interview was easy, basic interview questions such as what are you strengths and weaknesses, what you would do if an item rang up as a different price than what the customer said was posted (you take the customer's word for it), when was a time where you made a mistake and what did you do, and so on.

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied to one specific location, but a different location got my info and called me to come to their job fair. I went there thinking they had my application, but I had to fill one out by hand. The first interview was more into how you are as a person. The interviewer asked me questions about myself and what I do in my free time. I made it to the second interview with 2 managers each asking me more formal "experience" questions. I made the mistake of not being specific in my answers because I felt like I was being rushed. I think they score you in each question from 1-10 and if you score high enough, you'll get hired.

    You start off watching a little video and doing a survey. Just the basic questionaire to see if you're not totally insane then they'll process that and wait. Someone comes and gives you an interview. The questions are really basic, anything you can find online. But my tip is to refer some of your answers to the short video they make you watch.

    Interview Details

    Interview process begins with a phone interview and than if you pass an onsite interview will take place. Sometimes a third interview will occur with the HR manager. Follow up on your application by calling the store, however if you applied at multiple stores than you interview won't go to the 2nd or 3rd choice until after the 1st choice turns you down. Many applicants think the application will go to all stores, however it goes in a specific order.

    I applied online - interviewed at Target in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on the target . Com and about 2 days later I received a call for a job interview. It went to my voicemail. I called back and the operator scheduled me for an interview time. I went on the date and time. I had to fill out another forum of questions in regards to situations. After I waited for the first interviewer. She came and took me into an office. She asked me some questions. I answered. After she asked me to wait back in the waiting area. I went back and maybe 5 minutes later another lady came out and I went into her office a Second interview. She asked me more questions and she offered me a contingent job offer. All in all it was a smooth interview process. One of the smoothest I have ever had especially in retail.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    The process was very fast. I submitted my application online, which is quite lengthy. After about an hour someone, who was very kind and helpful, called to do a basic preliminary phone interview. I was then instructed to call a number for information related to tax credits or something, asking if I was getting government assistance. I was to call that number before my more detailed phone interview, which was set up for the following morning. That interview was easy, 5 or so behavioral/scenario questions and a basic rundown of the skills needed for the job. I was then asked to come in the next day for a second in-person interview. I arrived on time for it, but was told the manager (LoD) was on lunch, which I thought was unprofessional. I was asked if I had filled out the online questionnaire; I said I had filled out a 50-question test as part of my application. I was told this was a different one, and they sat me down and told me to log in and fill it out and when I finished, the manager should be back from lunch, and then I was left alone. I logged on and the computer told me I had already completed the test, so I waited for twenty minutes and then had my interview. It was very basic, some "what would you do in this situation?" questions as well as greatest strength, greatest weakness, have I ever gone above and beyond for a customer and explain. After that my paperwork was handed over to HR who told me to get a drug test in 24 hours and when orientation would be. It was very easy and quick, although I left to go take the drug test and when I did I got a call from HR saying I needed to fill out the computer questionnaire. I explained that the computer told me I had, but she said it was an error. So I went back and filled out a 75 question test on pencil and paper, where the first 50 questions were the same as my application. But, after that I was done.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online - They require you to choose 3 positions you might be interested it. In addition to the standard personal info section, they have a long questionnaire section asking about your personality and about what would you do in certain scenarios, such as how to deal with angry customers and so on.

    3 days later they called and conducted a phone interview. They wanted to know which of the three positions that I had chosen was the one I actually wanted. This flustered me a bit, because I thought all three were okay and hadn't thought about which one was my favorite. I had to awkwardly take a moment to think about it in the middle of the phone interview and that was probably detrimental to how they thought of me. I randomly chose a position and said that's the one I wanted, even though I wasn't sure. Surprisingly, despite what went wrong, they scheduled the in-store interview for me the next day.

    The next day, only 6 hours prior to the scheduled interview, they called and said they had to re-schedule it for tomorrow. I agreed. But, having had time to think about which position I wanted, I suggested the one I wanted, which was the cashier position; but they told me that I was not qualified for that because they wanted "super friendly" people who can chat with the customers and they told me I wasn't chatty enough with them on the phone. I don't remember any store cashier ever saying anything other than "Hi, how are you?" and "Thank you, have a nice day" to me, so I don't know how hard that's supposed to be...

    The next day after that, when I went to the store for the interview, the service desk worker told me I had to complete some sort of questionnaire on one of the kiosks in the store. But I checked all the kiosks and the monitors were all off and I couldn't find any way to turn them on. I reported this to the service desk and they told me to go ahead and enter the employee area. When I got there, even though I had arrived right on the scheduled time, I had to sit and wait more than 10 minutes.

    When the interviewer arrived, I asked him about the kiosks and he had to take a couple minutes to go check if he was allowed to continue with the interview or if I needed to do the kiosk thing first. He finally decided the kiosk wasn't important and went ahead with the interview. But it took until the middle of the interview for him to realize that he had been interviewing me for the wrong position, not the one I had chosen. So he had to exit the room to go check something for several minutes before returning and continuing the interview.

    The interview mostly consisted of asking standard interview questions, such as "Describe a challenge you overcame" or "Describe a mistake you fixed" and so on. Aside from those standard questions though, they also asked some questions that seemed like they were asking me about their own store policy, even though I had never been given a chance to learn about that. For example, what would you do if a customer disputes a price? I'm not supposed to make decisions like that on my own, am I? I assumed they would have some sort of store policy for situations like that. After the interview, the interviewer actually said "I look forward to working with you" before correcting himself and adding "...if you get hired;" so I thought it had gone well.

    2 days later, however, I received an email that said "We are unable to offer you a position at this time."

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very easy I thought. As long as you prepare for a few basic interview questions, you will be fine. They start out by interviewing you with a Team Leader and if he/she likes you, then they pass you on to a quick questionnaire. Then after completing that you will go into a second interview with a Manager and he/she will ask you a few more questions. From there, if they like you, they will give you a conditional job offer and you will have to take a mandatory drug test with in 24 hours of the offer. If you pass, you will be contacted and scheduled for orientation.
