    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Baltimore, MD) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied roughly 2 weeks before receiving a call. I was unable to answer the call so I had a voicemail asking me to call back starting 9am the next morning. I called between 9am and 11am for the next week before I was scheduled for an interview. I was asked to come the following morning at 10:30am.

    I arrived 5 minutes early and was asked to sit in the store's Starbucks to wait. I waited for an hour before being escort allow with 2 other ppl, back to the HR offices. I sat in HR for another half hour before my interviewer arrived. She was very pleasant and easy to talk to. I was asked a few questions, four I believe, and then I was asked to review and update my availability. At the end, I was thanked and asked if I would be interested in a front end team lead position because it was more inline with past experience. I agreed and was told I would be notified in a few days of the decision.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Baltimore, MD) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Process took about 3 weeks. I applied online and called in after not receiving a call. They then scheduled me for a phone interview which was 3 days later , the phone interview included situation type questions "Tell me a time when.." after the interview I was scheduled to come in for a face to face interview the following week and was told I would be called to tell me what time to come in. Days went by and no call so I again called in and they rescheduled my interview for the following week at 3. When I got there they sent me to the back where I was told that the person who conducts interviews may not be back from vacation , after an hour and 15 minutes of waiting after my interview was initially scheduled (I should have left) they just got someone else to do it. Very Unprofessional

    Target Protection Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target (Baltimore, MD) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, they called me in about 4 days and scheduled a phone interview.

    The phone interview went well and they said I'd receive another call soon.
    An entire month went by before they called me back.

    I went in for an in person interview, it went well. We discussed the position, talked about my prior asset protection experience with another company, etc.

    Then comes the bad part, they tell me the position actually isn't even open yet, but they were expecting it to open soon (within a week) - but wanted to make me a cashier or something meanwhile. I said no thanks, and he told me it wouldn't be an entire month before I heard from them again, like before. They never called. Very irritating experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Target (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    I went in for my interview, waited about 10 minutes in the break room, then I was brought into a small meeting space and met with a sales floor team lead which asked me basic questions and then met with a person from HR. I was there for about an hour and a half and they hired me there. I did sign for a drug test and background check but never received a drug test. It was before the holidays and they were hiring a lot of people. After hired I went to an orientation which was a few days later and had a 90 probation period. Many people are fired before the 90 days, I worked for 14 months and saw a lot of people come and go.
