Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target (Capitola, CA) in July 2015.

Interview

Applied online for team leader, got denied by mail three days later. Got a call one week after that where they asked me if I was interested in another position. I was, as I REALLY need work. Went in for my interview, which started about ten minutes late (they were pretty busy), and sat in a small room. Interviewer was very nice, all smiles, and happy to do the interview. Answered about six or seven questions about myself, my skills, and a couple situational questions. My Interviewer felt I'd be a great fit with the backroom area. I love the idea as I like organizing and don't much care for customers. When we finished the questions, a lady from HR came to hand me the job offer. All in all, it was a great experience!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target (Lake Park, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Process took 3+ weeks. Contacted me to set up a phone interview a few days after I applied online. Waited a week and a half and they contacted me again and said they wanted to do an in-person interview. A few days later I received an e-mail saying they could not offer me employment at that time with no reason for their decision. Very poor application process for applicants.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The Interview process takes a few weeks. You go through three interview level and have a lot of different questions. There is a lot of different math questions and what if questions. It is one of the most detail interviews I've ever had. You do a phone interview and then you go to one lower level team leader and then to another level Leader and then to a third level leader. Some of the questions are hard like asking you if the price is wrong what would you do in that situation. It is very important call the customers guest. do not call them customers. Seasonal employees have a background that is required. That takes up to three weeks to come back. Do not get discouraged by that just wait it out. You need excellent customer service skills and must be able to approach customers without being afraid of the public. They want you to be exceptional customer service and give them an amazing experience. You do not just say how can I help you guide them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Target (Bolingbrook, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty comfortable interview process. I interviewed with the lead in charge of managing the back room team, followed by an interview with a store manager in charge of managing the whole Target store. Straightforward question and answer scenario, but it helped that the back room team lead was about my age and we were able to keep conversation casual.

    Interview Questions

    • Back Room Team Lead: more general questions like why do I want to work at Target, what my availability is, am I team player, etc. Store Manager: more hypothetical questions like: (1) if a pair of shoes are scanned incorrectly, what do I do as the cashier, (2) what is my thought process when dealing with an angry guest (at Target make sure to refer to customers as "guests"!), etc.   1 Answer
