Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Orlando, FL).

Interview

I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn and he sent me the link to apply. About a week after a phone screen with the recruiter I was contacted by the store manager for an interview. He scheduled 3 interviews for the same day. One with him, with an hr manager and an ETL. He told me that the next day I would have the final interview with an HR business partner. The same day of my last interview I heard from the store team and was offered the position.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (El Paso, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Mainly a very laid back experience, I was asked general interview questions by the Store Team Leader. He was a very nice and friendly person to have interviewing me so it made the process a lot more informal.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    I applied online for a position that the website said was available. A HR team member called me and told me that I would be perfect for the position and went on to explain some details, THEN told me that the position actually wasn't open and that it started at $12.25 an hour. I have 8 years of retail experience and 4 years of management experience, so I asked if the hourly rate varied with experience and she said, "No. Everyone starts at that rate." This hasn't been the first time target has called me and stated that they no longer had the position open that I had applied for, but asked if I was interested in general sales positions. Don't waste your time with them.

    Interview

    Interviews/ online assessment. Pretty typical for Target. Try to be personable because they really like that. They are all about Fast, Fun, and Friendly. Make sure you know a little about the "culture" of Target so you can prepare to answer the "Why do you want to work at Target" question.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online at the company website. Received an e-mail a few days later to schedule a phone interview with a recruiter within the week. Had the phone interview last week and it went okay. I prepared for the interview, but I was just a bit nervous and eager on the phone. It really wasn't bad though. It was short, seemed informal, and a more of a "get to know who you are" type of phone call. The recruiter asked about my work experience, why I want to work at Target, what I was most proud of at my previous work, which locations I would prefer to work at, what positions I was leaning towards and I think that's it. Whole phone conversation lasted about 7-10 minutes. At the end of the phone conversation the recruiter told me she will have someone call me the following week to schedule an interview. it's been over a week and still haven't heard anything.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work at Target? - Not a difficult question. Do you have any questions for me? I just asked to describe and clarify the different managerial positions and responsibilities.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview

    First you talk to a recruiter or apply online. I met with a recruiter through my school. Then I was set up with an on-campus interview. (Make sure you are minimum 15 min early). After this they decide if you will move forward which I did. I then was contacted from someone at Target headquarters to take an online assessment which was very very difficult. After that I was set up with an on-site interview. The onsite interview first consisted of a tour of the distribution center and an explanation of how the place was run. Then you go watch a HR video and are placed in 2 face to face interviews. Both of them interviews had a two person team asking you questions. They then say they may or may not contact you to tell you if you will be offered a job or not. I was sent a email saying I was not offered a job. There was also 3 other guys there getting interviewed as well. I exchanged emails with one of the guys and he was not offered a job either.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online at Indeed.com and got a call from Human Resources within a week and a half. I had a short phone interview which ended with her saying she would call me when she had her interview schedule. I was finally able to get in touch with her, after 10 days (she is very busy) and she told me she had called me on her way the door on the first day we spoke. Apparently, my phone didn't realize I was receiving a call! Anyway, she opened the interview book and got me set up for the next day. When I arrived, I was directed to the computer kiosk, where I took a quick test which included personality-type questions as well as some math questions. Then I met with her and she was VERY nice. She then wanted me to meet with the Hardlines Team Lead, so I had a short interview with him. He asked a few "tell me about a time" questions, which were very easy to answer. He asked me what I expected to be paid, so I gave him my range, based on previous experience. After collaboration, they wanted me to interview with the Store Team Leader, who also was very nice. She asked me a couple of the "tell me about a time" questions, as well, but she also asked me a series of "can you do this and that" questions, which was just to see what my physical capabilities are. My final question to HER was "When can I expect to hear from you?" (because I DO feel I did rather well in the interview process). She said "tomorrow (Friday) or at the very least, early next week. It will be prompt."
