    Interview

    I got called in the same I day submitted my application. They scheduled me for the first and it wasn't too bad. Look out for situational questions. The second interview will go by faster.

    Interview

    Overall not the worst. It was basically a giant hiring fair for just my new store. I was at the site for 4 hours unfortunately, and had 3 interviews with 3 different people and then was immediately hired and asked to do my drug test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and after a week passed I called to confirm they received my resume since I never got a confirmation email or call. After another 2 weeks I got a call and they did a phone interview. The person on the phone then said I would receive another call of they decided to proceed with hiring me. Two days later I got a email saying that they will not be hiring me at this time.

    Overall it was time consuming and stressful.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Target (Rocklin, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was brought in to see 3 different managers for 3 separate interviews covering different topics of the interview packet. The separation allowed for more thought between questions and really helped when answering the longer questions further in the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Target in July 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process took about 1 week. I applied to 3 target locations on a Monday or Tuesday and was called at 1pm the following Tuesday to set up an interview for one of the target locations. They did not interview me on the phone; they only asked if I was still interested and what position I was looking for. The HR on the phone set up an interview date for me that was on that Thursday at 9:45am. When I arrived at the guest service area, a lady kindly told me to go to the back door and check in there. Then I waited for a couple minutes and was called by someone that came out and lead me to a room. She was so incredibly sweet and comforting and made the interview feel more like a conversation between friends than an interrogation. I was going there very nervous but I became relaxed right away with her and she gave me advice about work and told me since they get a lot of people that get the job and don't show up on time, as long as you show up and do the best you can and try to sell the Redcards, you'll be fine and that's all they ask for. I then finished with her and waited outside for 1 minute before I met with another woman who unfortunately gave me the news that my shift has to be open everyday from 7am to 12am for them to choose which time I work and that most likely on weekends I need to be there at 7am as a cashier because they are the busiest on those days especially Sunday. I had to reject because I have church and also because I don't want to wake up 6 in the morning everyday. If I had accepted, I would've had a second interview with a couple other questions. But overall it was a pleasant experience and they were very kind and comfortable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Target (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I went on the website and filled an out an application for the position I was interested in. The application was really quick and the questions were straight forward. After I was done I called to talk to one of the assistants in HR to set up an interview for the very next day. I came in like 10 minutes before my actual interview and guest services told me to sit in the eating area. They were actually late on the interview by almost 10 minutes but I didn't mind. I had my first interview with the assistant, she asked really general questions like availability, why would you like to work for us, what does great guest (customer) service look like to you. After that she sent me to interview with the hiring manager, that was a little more tense. He told me he still had other interviews up front was hiring what he felt were the best candidates. He asked a lot of behavioral type questions and took more notes, a lot of what if questions. I was very detailed and kept eye contact to show interest. By the end of my interview he told me he had already decided to hire me just by going by what his assistant said. I had a really pleasant experience at that location at least.
