Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target (Valencia, CA).

Interview

This was hiring event they were promoting, however the process consisted of 3 interviews. You wait in the briefing room with others who have also applied until you are called for your first interview.
Each one was with a different person, they had a couple of questions ranging from why you would like this job to what would you bring to the team.
As soon as the interviews were over, the people who got to the third interview were offered a job while the others were told to apply again next time.
They then have you take a general quiz after which entails what you need to know. This is taken with everyone in the group that is left.

    Backroom Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Daly City, CA

    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

    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.
