Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee in Wilsonville, OR
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Wilsonville, OR) in June 2017.

Interview

The interview process was simple. It consisted of two interviews, the first asking more of your past and the second asking more of your "place" at target. After the first interview, you watch a video that goes over the basics of target. The second interview is not necessarily a quiz of that video yet asks personal question that apply.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Target (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Very nice people and many questions, overall a 2 hour interview. The HR manager was incredibly nice and helpful. I was offered the job on the spot. You basically just go in and answer a series of scenario questions, and then go over availability and start dates.

    Interview

    The interview was very scripted, as the manager was directly reading off the paper. It seemed to be systematic, since there were so many people to interview (19 when I was there).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    I went through three different interviews, with two in one day. It wasn't too bad, but I didn't understand why it had to be three...Each one was swift and sweet. The interviewers were very nice, however they seemed like they just wanted to hire anyone that wanted to work there, which showed desperation.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    A manager asked situational type questions off a paper and wrote down your answer nothing personal what so ever, they then give those papers to the manager in charge of hiring, so you never even get to speak to that manager unless youre hired. Its about as personal as what you fill out online but someone writes it down instead.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    They had us all wait in a room next to the break room to be called in one at a time. It was a bit of a long wait, but nothing I wasn't used to. Once I was called, I was brought into a room with a manager and asked pretty simple questions. Don't be afraid to make some things up, especially if this is your first job. Make sure to memorize the REDcard promotions and tell them that you are completely confident selling them to people. This is all they care about. Have a good attitude and flexible schedule.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Rocklin, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on their website, about a week or two later I received a phone call from an ETL who performed a small cursory interview and set up a time and date for a second phone interview which was about 3 days later. They asked questions with expectations of a 'situation, the behavior I exhibited, and the outcome' (the interviewer was laid back and even told me as such) on the phone interview. After that 2nd interview, which went well, they called me almost within 20 minutes to set up an in-person interview the following Monday (since the phone interview was on a Friday). That Monday was another cursory interview with another ETL who asked me more questions, and then once that was done I was taken to a small room where the first ETL I'd spoken with on the phone came in and offered me the job. From there, I had 24 hours to complete the background check by signing into their site a certain way and getting the questionnaire completed for that. After about 2 days, I got a call and an email that Wednesday about orientation on Thursday. They really look for people with bubbly personalities, cheerful optimism, and a passion for excellent customer service. Customer satisfaction is everything to Target.
