    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school's career fair. Basically, if they liked you, they would ask you to sign up for an interview on the spot. If not, they would ask you to apply online. The questions were all situational questions. "Name a time when you....how did you conquer it?" I went through 3 interviews - the last one was with the District Team Leader. However, I heard that if you are scheduled with the DTL, you basically had the job in the bag already.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were all situational. Name a time when you disagreed with what your boss. What happened and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pay is negotiable to an extent. Get a feel for how much your city pays for minimum wage and how much they like you.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    There were 3 store level interviews and a 4th interview with the DTL. All of the interviews are one on one, but you have to get signed off on store level first. The DTL interview was only about 5 or 10 min. He asked about 3 questions and that was it. I found out within a few days whether or not I was signed off.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions aren't difficult. They're all situational questions, i.e. 'Tell me about a time...'   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I was promoted from within, but if you're from the outside it's simple as putting in an application online or on the in-store kiosk. It comes down to being if you have open availability or availability to what the store wants. If you have that and they are hiring, they will call you in for an interview. I don't know the process of how they interview from outside for team leader, but from within you have to interview with store manager and district manager.

    Interview Questions
    • It comes down to situations and outcomes. They'll ask questions about scenarios and want to know how you reacted and what your reaction did for the situation. You really want to answer in that format because they score you on that.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was promoted from within and tired to get my pay higher since I was with the company for so long before being promoted, and was told it's a standard amount and that they would be unable to make it anything higher.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I came from a supervisor position at another company making $40,000 per year. The human resources manager at Target told me that she couldn't offer me any more than $15.00 per hour. Due to the close proximity of the store, I accepted a salary less than my previous salary.
