    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target (Midway, GA).

    Interview

    Safety is the main focus because warehouse workers mostly work with power equipment. This was for the start up of two new distribution centers. Training to operate the power equipment was taking in steps and it took up to a month for a person to certified to operate a power without a trainer.

    Interview

    they use the STAR method... like what you would do in certain situations, how you would react if someone did this or to you. Some are kinda strange questions but i guess its just to see how you answer so they get a idea who you are. If you are not sure what STAR means just look it up on the net it will give you some ideals and questions so you can prepare.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target (Stuarts Draft, VA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    This hiring and interview process was for seasonal workers who can become full time employees at the end of the 90-day period. Target states that using seasonal workers is their way of utilizing an extended interview as well as for the obvious spike in sales.

    You first have to register online, and you will need your Social Security number. They will ask you to give them all of the information that you would find on a typical resume: where you have worked, education, jobs held, etc. After completing that section they will ask that you take a behavioral test. It's very simple and they ask you questions like, “Would you ever break safety rules to get a job done?” After you have completed your online profile they will call you for a face-to-face interview.

    Once you show up (bring a photo id) you will have to take another test of approximately 15 questions. Most of the questions are math based. They will ask you to look at a graph and compute a number that would show which employee performed more work than another. Another question will be how long one shipment will take to get to a city versus another shipment. The questions aren't hard - basic math and an understanding of percentages is enough to get through it. Target states that the results will not reflect on whether you are hired or not.

    Following the test, you will be interviewed by 1-2 people. They will first show you how much per hour they pay and what the shift differential is. Then, they will show you the available shifts and you have to rank them in order of importance to you. The interviewer/s will ask you six questions and all of them are about your experiences at previous employers. “Tell me about a situation where you made a mistake at work and how did you respond?” “Tell me about a time you had difficulty with a manager/employee and how did you handle it?” “Tell us about a time you were interrupted at work?” “Did you ever stop working on something and point out a safety hazard to your supervisor?” If you have any work experience at all you should be able to answer the questions easily.

    The whole interview process, including the online registration, the test at Target and the actual interview will take about 1.5 hours.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target (Dublin, OH) in July 2011.

    Interview

    This was my first interview I applied online got called the next day for an interview. They made me take an IQ test on one of the computers when I didn't know the location of the computers I asked an employee and she was very nice and showed me where and who to talk to. The test just had some questions about averages and basic math skills. I had 2 interviews with them the first was a team leader she asked be basic questions like greatest strength, weaknesses, times you've helped others and so on. The second interview was with one of the execs and she asked the same questions pretty much just with a little different wording both were extremely nice and chatted a bit and laughed it was a fun interview.
