    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in person and a couple of current employees put in a good word for me. Someone from HR called me a couple of days later and invited me for an onsite interview with two managers. The interview process was a pleasant experience. Simple behavioral questions were asked; such as what would you do in this specific situation, and at the end of the interview I received an offer on the spot.

Had a second interview the same day with someone else, and then spoke with the my direct supervisor (who was supposed to interview me in the first place.
