I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target in June 2013.

Interview Details – I applied 2 weeks before receiving a phone call from the hiring department. They scheduled a phone interview for the following day. It was mostly about my hours available and different sanarios. I later got a call about a week later calling me in for an interview at the store. I went and met with someone in the HR department and then the manager. I was hired on the spot

Tampa, FL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in November 2010.

Interview Details – I had to do an application in there store after doing one online even though they called me for the interview. I waited for about half an hour before they called me in . I did an interview with a senior employee and then another employee who I believe was a team leader of some sort. When it was done they sat me back down in the waiting room. and it turns out the position was filled right before I got there.

Murrieta, CA

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in July 2009.

Interview Details – There was a Super Target going into a shopping center in Murrieta, so they were hiring somewhere to around 100 new employees. They did it in groups. I was scheduled to arrive at 2:30PM. When I got there, there was about 10 other people who were also scheduled to arrive at 2:30PM. When 2:30 came, a Target employee gave us a introduction and explained how the interview process was going to be. Next, we went into a room to watch something like a training video. Basically, it gave a summary of what the Target image was, and how Target employees are supposed to hold themselves. Then we each took a skills test based on the position that you applied for. Once I finished, I waited to have my first 1:1 interview. From there, they sent me to another room to wait for my second interview with a different interviewer. After that, they told me to wait for a phone call or an email... I got the email.

Interview Details – there are 2 interviews. the first one is with a team leader. if you did well and they liked you, they will make you wait in the break room for your second interview with an executive team lead. if they like you there, you will need to go take a drug test within 24 hours of getting hired. they will then set up orientation times once they get enough hires.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in March 2010.

Interview Details – The process included on-line psych, IQ, and skills testing. The one on one meeting was very pleasant, and each interviewer sold Target in a positive manner. Questions were very basic to the process. What would you do if this happened. Strength-weakness. When did you do something to improve your company. How do you handle disageements with supervisors. Team attitude.( Integrity level is very important.)
