    Cashier Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Pleasant Pr, WI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I apply for target and a day later I called a call for a interview. I went in on Friday and had two interviews. Both interviews went great and they both acted like I was going to get the job. We even laughed and I enjoyed myself. After the second interview she said they would call for on Monday so I could sign some papers. I never heard from them I called wondering what was going on and they told me to to watch out for a call or email. After four weeks of waiting I got an email saying they could not offer me a job at this time. What is strange is they acted like I got the job and I do have experience as a cashier. I do shop at that target often, and I notice they had some new cashiers, and they were so rude. I could't believe that they didn't hire me and they gave me false hope. They are not people of their word they told me they would call me Monday and I heard from them four weeks later! I got another job where people keep their word.

    Executive Team LeaderGuest Experience Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I was recruited at my university's career fair for the summer internship. After the career fair, I was contacted by a corporate recruiter about 2 days later. She explained the role and asked for a first interview. The first interview was over the phone with her. Very simple questions, mostly about my background/experience and what I wanted to do after college. I was contacted a day or 2 later for a second round interview. This time it was with a Store Team Lead (STL). It was on my college's campus and it lasted about 30 minutes. It was a bit more difficult of an interview, the STL spoke about the company and the position but also dug deeper into my future goals. A few days after that interview I was contacted for a third round interview, this time with the Distrcit Team Leader (DTL). This one was more intense, it was back to back behavioral questions. The DTL was a little intimidating and hard to read. I did A LOT of research on him beforehand and had a list of questions to ask him. I was offered the position the next day. I completed the internship successfully and was offered a full-time ETL role after graduation; which I accepted bc the salary is great for a recent-grad! They did not interview me again for the ETL position.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (Melrose Park, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I showed up early for my interview and was asked to wait in the food court. 20 minutes after my scheduled time the team leader for that department came and got me. She interviewed me for about 15 minutes and we kind of just had a normal conversation between the questions. She said she like me and would go get the manager to see if I could do my 2nd interview that day as well. I waited and a few minutes later the manger came in and interviewed me, with a new set of questions, for another 15 minutes. She approved of me as well and took me over to the HR office and I spoke with HR for about 5 minutes and was offered the position. They even gave me the per hour pay I asked for, that was above their average pay for the position, without trying to talk me down. The entire process took about 45 minutes and we very light and conversation driven.
