    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Target (Allentown, PA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the job online and was called the following day to set up an interview. At the store I answered a few "scenario" questions online similar to those on the original application. I then watched a short video which outlined the basics of the job. The interviiewer was very friendly and easy to talk with. I woman and asked the sasked the same questions that others have posted here on Glassdoor. I then met with the store manager. Again, very personable woman asked me the "shoe" question. I was than asked to wait for the human resources manager. Unfortunately I was unable to begin work on the date that they offered and so could not accept the offer.

    Executive Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Allentown, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Target (Allentown, PA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I found the Target intern program through them heavily recruiting on campus. I went to basically an open house for them when they discussed more about the company. If you decide to go to one of these be prepared, they will put you on the spot (but in a good way). In a way it was a prep for if you were going to decide to move on to the interview process.

    I did my first interview on campus with two representatives. One asked questions, one wrote down my answers. It went smooth and the questions were your average behavioral questions. They want all the details. From there they called a day later to let me know I moved on to get a second interview and gave me my interviewers phone number to call and get feedback on my first interview to see how I could improve for my second.

    My second interview was at our district office with a district team leader. Some of the questions were repeats and some were not, but only had about five. However, I was asked almost the same questions in three different ways and had to give one on the fly because I didn't have enough examples. Those were all regarded situations that went wrong, and how did I fix it or how did I deal with the people etc...

    I found out a week later I got the intern positon, but they did wait until the last minute to find out my location.

    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Allentown, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Target (Allentown, PA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process involves a series of behavioral interviews. It is best that you come prepared to talk not only about your work experience, but about who you are as a person and what you are able to bring to the table. Focuses are on interpersonal relationships, team building, and ability to adapt well in new situations. Interviewer will dig deeper to learn the information that they want if you do not readily provide it. If they have to dig for too long- it will reflect poorly on you as a candidate.
