I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target in February 2011.
Interview Details – Online application process that took the good part of 45 minutes, general questions that have been asked on countless other online job application processes. Several weeks later they contacted myself to ask for a 1:1 interview where they read off of predetermined questions.
Interview Question – How did you accomplish a goal with a team? Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at Target in January 2011.
Interview Details – I applied online which involved an hour long personality test with questions about how you like working with other people, how you deal with stress, etc. I was emailed a few weeks later to schedule an interview for the following week. During the interview I met with 2 separate people, each of whom conducted half of the interview. They each asked me questions like "describe a time when you were challenged in the work place, how you responded, any leadership you exhibited and were you successful in your response". The questions were pre-formated and printed out and they both wrote notes and graded my response on the paper. In between each interview I waited in the break room. At the end I waited again, and they called me back in and offered me a job on site. This was for a seasonal position.
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, they already have a set wage.
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in May 2010.
Interview Details – Interviewed by two people, one on one, in separate sessions - one was the Human Resources Executive. Asked generic questions - tell me about a time when you ..., Have you ever been in a situation where X happened and what did you do, how would you react if X happened. No true real answers to the questions - just trying to gauge whether or not you handled or accomplished whatever in an appropriate, normal manner.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you when above and beyond to complete a task in a previous job - or words to that effect. View Answer
Negotiation Details – None - accept the offered salary or not. Was asked if I preferred to work overnight for $1 more per hour, on the cashier lanes, on the floor, etc.
Very Easy Interview

Interview Question – Why do you want to work at target? View Answer
Negotiation Details – You aren't able to negotiate. You get a flat rate for whatever pay is set for target team members in your zip code.
The process took 5 days - interviewed at Target in August 2009.
Interview Details – Sent in an application. The Human Resources was very quick to respond. The Interview asked about some of my experience but mainly focused on my schedule. They seemed more concerned with me showing to work than finding out if I was actually a solid employee. I had been at much harder interviews before so I was completely prepared. They also asked a few questions where you have to pick the best response.
Interview Question – This is not exactly how it was phrased but you get the idea: How would you handle a situation where one of your fellow team members received a promotion that you had been trying for and you feel they did not deserve? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Nothing. Pretty strait forward.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in June 2009.
Interview Details –
i applied online and got a call at my house about a week later to schedule an interview. well i wasn't home when the call came in and a message was left for me to call carol(not real name) at human resourse. i got home about two hours after the call and decided to call back right away since it was basically still early in the day. i placed the call and was told that carol had gone to lunch and could i please leave my name and number and she will return my call as soon as she gets back. there was no call from carol three hours later and i'm thinking there is no way lunch could be that long!! so i call back and i was told carol had left for the day!!! i couldn't believe it. but you know this was just a prelude of what was to be a one week run around i have ever seen!! for one week after the initial call, everytime i called, carol hadn't come in yet, carol was at lunch, it was carol's day off, or carol was in a meeting, it was one excuse after after another. i even went to the store to talk to carol in person or another human resourse personel, but i was again told that carol wasn't in that day and guess what, she was the only one i could talk to about the interview. imagine my fustration!! i had all but given up on the whole thing when i finally got a call asking me to come in for an interview on a scheduled date.
on the day of the interview, i had to take a personality test. after which i was then invited to the human resourse office for the interview. the interview was two seperate interviews with different interviewers. the first interview was about ten questions like ' why did you apply here?" , "why should we hire you for this job?", " when was the last time you work on a team and what was your role?", " tell me about the time you went out of your way to help someone?".. just basic stuff like that. once done with the first interview, i was told to wait in the room and someone else would be with me shortly. let's say it was about thirty minutes later before the next interviewer came in. another set of ten or so questions were ask like" tell me about a major change in your life and did you like this change or not, if not why and what did you do about it?"." tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult co-worker and how did you handle it?", " what do you think this store expectation should be of their employee?" and now the question that totally got me stumped!!!!" if you are hire what are your expectations of this your employer?" my mind literally went blank and i think i must have stumble around for an answer for about a minute before saying somthing reasonable inttelligent!!!! i couldn't wait to high tail it out of there. i got the standard " we sare still interviewing people so we will give you a call next week whether or not you are hire". it has been three weeks since then and guess what, i haven't had any calls yet. i did call two weeks after the interiview and was told the same "we are still interviewing but we will give you a call". i mean seriously!! how long does it take to interview and hire someone for a food service team member job?!!!!!! well carol if you are out there, i'm still waiting for that call!!

Interview Details –
Went in expecting a lot of hard questions after reading other reviews. All the questions that are already posted are correct. Tell me a time you worked in a group to achieve a goal, what was the outcome....tell me a time you went above and beyond for someone...I interviewed first with a really nice girl she made it easy. And then the second interview, she was also really young and was a lot nicer and easier to talk to.
She told me that they were going to bring me on no matter what but that she felt I would be better in the Starbucks. So she had the Starbucks supervisor come and meet me, she told her that all the questions and things she wrote didn't matter. So as long as you answer with a situation...what you did...And then outcome format, you'll be fine. Because even the manager was saying it doesn't matter, its just whether they like you and feel You'll fit. That's why they put me in the Starbucks because I do really well in a fast paced environment. I used to work in a hospital so they know I can multitask. Ultimately, I got offered the only full time position while they were only looking for seasonal hires.
