    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Called in for an interview within a week or two of applying for the position. Went through two interviews, took about 10-20 minutes each. Usually offered a position at the time of interview or within 1-2 days.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Asked to provide examples of adversity or difficulty, etc. The questions are fairly basic about previous employment and scheduling. Provide more than just yes/no answers-providing specific examples is important to succeed through the interview   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They typically offer you a set pay. Could try to negotiate based on experience or education but oftentimes you will be given what you are offered.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a few positions, which included filling out some questionnaires, before hearing back a couple days later via phone. They confirmed I was still interested and set up a phone interview the next day. The phone interview went well enough and I was invited for a second interview in the store, scheduled a day or two later. During that interview I watched a couple of videos describing some of the positions I was interested in. I was then asked to select the one I was most interested in and best suited for and answered a few more questions before concluding the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any really unexpected or difficult questions. Mainly a lot of open ended, free response sort of things. Probably the most unsettling question resulted in me trying to convey what I would consider my weakness in the related environment to be. Though, as far as I'm aware, that's pretty standard fare.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was pleasant, I was offered a higher hourly wage than I asked for.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Interviews begin with a phone interview by a team leader. Then if you pass that you will receive a second interview face to face with an executive team leader. Interview questions are situational. They are looking for a situation: set up the situation, a behavior: give specific examples of what you did to improve the problem or situation (give high quality examples that show your ability to admit mistakes, include others, communicate/collaborate, and delegate), an outcome: explain how the situation worked out in the end (include if you were recognized, you were promoted, you learned from the mistake, you created a routine).

    Interview Questions
    • During the second interview the executive will ask scenario questions. Make sure you always answer with the guest (customer) best interest. Target prides itself on providing exceptional guest service which means making it right for the guest. Just remember that fast, fun, and friendly is the motto! Also questions about integrity, just have some please if you want to work anywhere.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation depends on the position you are applying for. Salesfloor or fresh to Target can expect minimum wage. Leaders may be negotiable depending on experience and "time in."

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call a week later. I was asked five standard STAR questions, so prepare yourself for such inquiry. A day later, I got a call from the HM about tax accreditation. Talked to the automated machine and received my confirmation code. She invited me to an interview the next day at 2 PM. I got there early to snatch a kiosk and punch my confirmation code in, but neither kiosk was operating. Was sent to the break room and waited about fifteen minutes to be called in for the interview itself with the SM. More standard STAR and scenario questions ensued, and I was enthusiastic about the whole process. This particular store has an incredibly nice work force and a great atmosphere. She directed me to talk to another Team Leader (she was filling in for the HM, who was out today), and I was offered the job as a cashier about fifteen minutes from the initial first in person interview.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were difficult, they were more personal and common-sense oriented.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The pay was set - twenty-five cents above the minimum wage.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I filled out the application online. It consisted of the typical forms and one of those long surveys about ethics. I received an email saying they weren't hiring, then the next day I received a phone call about interviewing.

    I was interviewed by a Team Lead (I'm unsure of the equivalents but I'd guess this is a dept supervisor?), and since it was summer, an intern was there to observe and she asked a couple of questions, herself. Then, I was interviewed by an Executive Team Lead (assistant manager?) and he offered me a job and gave me a choice of departments to work in. I had to get a drug test within 24 hours of the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • There were actually no out-of-the-ordinary questions. Everything was what you'd typically expect in an interview.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by phone for an interview about 1 or 2 weeks later. The interview was scheduled for Thursday at 1PM, which was 5 days from then. However, I got another call on Wednesday saying that interviews has been rescheduled to Monday, but the times are the same. I arrived at Target around 10 minutes early and was directed to an employee room. They gave me a packet with a questionnaire that asked what would be the best and worst things to do in various situations. I had to complete the questions in the break room and wait until I was called for the first interview. There were about four other people in the break room who were also waiting. After waiting for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, I finally was called for my first interview. The guy who interviewed me seemed like a rookie and a bit indifferent. He first confirmed my availability, past work experience, and position I was applying for. Then he read a series of questions from a packet that required you to explain the situation, what you did in the situation, and the outcome. There was barely any eye contact during the interview because he took a long time writing down my answers. After that, I was sent back to the break room to and had to wait about 15 minutes for my second interview. The second interview was exactly the same as the first except with a couple of different questions with a different interviewer. They said that they would e-mail or call me about their decision since they still had more people to interview. I got an e-mail a couple of days later saying that they were "unable to offer you a position at this time."
