    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews. All questions were situation based. What would you do if....? A third grader could pass their interviews. Take your time and be detailed in your answers. Tell them what you did, and then tell them what you learned in that particular situation.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult answers. They were silly questions that did nothing to weed out poor performers.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They dont really negotiate. They have a base and want to start you there.

    Interview Details

    In 2006, the initial application is held within each store if one decides to fill out an application at the location of interest. If you meet the requirements, you are instantly requested for an interview. If you are successful with the initial interview, you are then welcomed to a second interview following the initial one.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with 2 executive team leaders, the store team leader, and the district team leader for a total of 4 interviews. All interviews start with the basics like what are your strengths/opportunities, why you want to work for Target/this position. Then you go into "tell me about a time" questions as well as "what would you do in this situation" questions that give an example of something that involves dealing with guests/managing team members. It's all standardized questions read directly from a pre-printed packet created by Target headquarters.

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Got the initial interview through my college campus recruiting. Had the first phone interview which lasted around 20 minutes. All the questions were related to your experience as a group leader. Second round of interviews was in person at the office. I was supposed to meet with two people and only met with one. She was about 30 minutes late and the interview only lasted 10 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Target in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    First I had to complete the online application. I subsequently interviewed three times with different people on the same day and was offered the position.

    Negotiation Details
    They started their offer low and acted like it would be a big executive decision to get me what I was asking for and then the store manager came in and gave a big speech about what they would expect of me if they gave me the amount I asked for and that it was highly unusual.
