Barista Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison Heights, MI
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Madison Heights, MI) in July 2017.

Interview

My interview was at 9:30am but I was not seen until 10:45am. Then after speaking with one interviewer, I was told that I had to wait about 15 minutes to speak with another one. Needless to say that 15 minutes turned into 30 and when I was finally seen by the second person she asked me the exact same questions as the first person so it was really a massive waste of time altogether. Not to mention the waiting room they had me in was kind of dirty.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Myrtle Beach, SC) in December 2014.

    Interview

    This interview was quite an odd duck. I applied online and I had two years of starbucks experince. First I got a call from who I was lead to believe was the HR manager and that I would have an interview with her. When I showed up for the interview I first had to take an assessment test. I than was interview by the manager of the Starbucks area. After I passed that interview I was than lead away by an Assistant manager to watch a view about working at target. After him and I watched the video he interviewed (the 2nd interview). I was told I would be called in less than a week if I made it to the next phase. After about three weeks I received a call from the HR manager (as it turns out the first woman that called me was not the HR like I was lead to think) and we set up a time for a meet and greet with her, the store manager, and I. I was told this was NOT AN INTERVIEW. When I arrived I was greeted by the actual HR manager this time and was lead to store manager's office and meet the store manager. After we started talking he started asking me INTERVIEW questions. I felt this phase was very misleading because I would told it wasn't an interview. After a few days I was informed I didn't get the job.

    NOTE: I rated this interview as very difficult. Yes I know this interview isn't the hardest. I gave the interview this rating consider the fact I was going for a entry level barista position. If the I it was for a higher level position I would of giving it a lower difficultly rating.
