    I applied online - interviewed at Target in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with two different team leaders and was asked a lot of questions about my reactions in specific situations. Definitely a much more involved interview than I expected. Seems as though they really want to make sure they're hiring good people

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview 1st and then the next step is in store interview. Relatively difficult for whatever reason and a lot of questions. (10 to be exact). Most of the questions revolved around teamwork and the beginning questions were easy, but as the interview continued, unexpected questions arose. Also in the middle of the interview the interviewer had to randomly include the duties of the front line clerk because of Target policies. I wish I got the job but I think I did poorly in my interview.

    Interview Questions

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Braintree, MA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Target in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    You will go through two interviews with either team leads or executive team leads. It was relatively straight forward, questions about availability and a lot of hypotheticals. For me both interviews were exactly the same, the questions were just worded slightly differently. No idea if this has changed since. They however will not actually start you until they have enough people to do a group orientation, I was hired in early september but didn't actually begin until mid to late october.

    Interview Questions
    • They want vivid descriptions of "Exceptional" customer service experiences. I Have been in retail since I was 15 and honestly didn't have any so I just made one up to get through the question.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation, they offer you the position with it's standard rate of pay, you can accept or hit the road.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Target in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    They were fairly slow in their hiring process after the final interview. I had only one interview, although now I hear that they are doing phone interviews followed by an in-person final interview. You apply via a kiosk with the store itself. It was approx a week after my application that I was contacted via phone to set up an interview. 3 weeks later I had my first day. They will be asking for a urine sample to be carried out at a lab after you are tentatively hired (in my case, Quest Diagnostics).

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me about a time that I had a huge conflict with a coworker and how I resolved it. I've never had a huge conflict, so I made something up. I thought it was somewhat ridiculous to assume that everyone has had a serious conflict with a past coworker.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They didn't seem very open to pay negotiation. Then again, I don't remember asking outright.

    The interview is very simple. It is essentially a joke. The only thing anyone need worry about is making sure to get to the lab they send you to for a urine drug-screening test within 24 hours of the job offer.

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Target in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Went in early. Well dressed and fresh looking. I was told to sit on a bench by the registers for about 15 mins. After being called in I met the HR. Asked questions on leadership, scenarios for helping guests, and what could I bring to Target. Than I met the LOD of Logistic who asked the same questions. After that, I met the Back Room team lead who asked the same questions. All of them were very nice and not to forcing.

    Interview Questions
    • The most Difficult question asked was how have I been a leader before and how can I bring leadership to Target. That was the first and most biggest value Target seemed to look for.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Allow your interviewer to know that you enjoy customer service, fast pace work, and that you have leadership skills to lead others. Always respond positive and honest.
