    I received a call the next day and was asked pretty standard retail interview questions. I was then scheduled for an in person interview for the following day and asked almost the next exact same type of question.

    I was given a conditional offer pending a background check and was told to report for orientation the following Monday.

    Backroom Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Daly City, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Daly City, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to the target at Daly City, CA online at 11:00am yesterday (09/08/16) and at 2:00pm of the same day they called me. I didn't even expect it to be that fast considering almost everyone else on here got a call a few days/weeks after submitting the application.

    We scheduled for an interview for Friday (09/09/16) at 10:00am. I went to target about ten minutes before the scheduled interview and waited in the waiting room for about 15 minutes till they called me.

    This was my first interview so I was a bit nervous and my palms were sweating a bit but the interviewer was really chill and really positive so that made my confidence boost up. Also when putting my elbows on the table and placing my arms in a professional way made me feel less nervous than just placing my arms below and fidgeting my hands around.

    The questions were not too difficult, they were just questions about myself and a couple scenarios.Since I had no other job experience, I answered with my High school and Volunteer experiences to answer the questions. It was weird that the interviewer didn't ask me any scenario questions about the store like "If a customer is angry at you, what do you do in that situation". So I guessed that the 2nd Interviewer was going to tell me about it.

    After the 1st Interview, I was sat down back at the break room for 10 minutes until the 2nd Interviewer comes in.

    The 2nd Interviewer was really chill like the first one but instead of sitting at a small table with regular metal chairs, It was at an office with office chairs. This guy was really nice and laid back. He didn't make me feel nervous.

    The questions he asked was like the first one. He asked "Tell me about you" and scenario questions but they still weren't about specific employee at Target situations but generic one. But at the end, The interview lasted about 15 minutes and had a really nice interview experience.

    Edit: I am typing this right after I've had the interview so I am checking "No I didn't get the job" unless told otherwise

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Target (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    It was about 15 minutes with 2 people interviewing. Basically ask situational questions. Nothing difficult. I think they kind of needed people, so no matter how you answer the question you would get hired anyway. I didn't accept the offer because i didn't want to work at night.

    Backroom Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kapolei, HI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Kapolei, HI) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and called 3 days later to follow up on the application. Received a call 5 days later asking if I was still interested, and why I wanted to work for Target. HR set up an appointment for me to be interviewed 3 days after that. I came in 10 min early, but ended up having to wait an extra 30 min sitting in the office as they were busy. My interviewer came in and brought me to a room with a table and 3 chairs, sat me down and said he'd be right back. He brought another team member to sit with us through the interview. She didn't say anything until the end when I asked them questions, not sure why she was there but it didn't put me off or anything. I answered everything honestly and the questions were easy -- mostly situational questions. I think the interview went very well, but at the end my interviewer told me they have a few other applicants to get through so HR will be giving me a call if I got the job. Waited 3 days and woke up this morning to an email saying they appreciate my interest but could not offer me a position at this time.

    Interview Questions

    • -Why do you want to work at Target, and not Kmart or Walmart?
      -What experience do you have that qualifies you for the position you're applying for?
      Then the situational-type questions:
      -Tell us about a time that you had a conflict with another employee or management, and how did you solve it?
      -Tell us about a time you were interrupted, and how did you get around it?
      -Tell us about a time that you required help from someone more experienced than you.
      -Tell us about a time that you had to motivate others around you to do well?
