Interview

Application was done online. The interviews were straightforward. One phone interview and one in-person interview. Had to do an employee assessment test in the store. I called about a week after I submitted my application to see if they had reviewed it yet, which was when they offered to set up my first phone interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Leominster, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was applying for a 90 day seasonal position while I looked for a full-time career. The interview was pretty short. Basically, after completing the online application, you are given a call within 3-4 days. Once you get the call, you are called in for the face to face interview. (If you are applying around September or November and get a call, you pretty much have the job.)

    Once called in, I had to fill out another questionnaire on one of their computers. There, it asks you a series of situational questions. Such as, "A customer comes to you to ask a question while you are helping another guest with their question, what do you NOT do?"

    After completing that part, you will have the face to face with an ETL. I would recommend not over dressing or under dressing. I wore a dress shirt with dress pants, no tie.There you will be asked basic questions, so do not be nervous.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were basic. I would say the only tough one that always gets me is, "What is something you could improve on?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no real negotiation. They basically offered me 50 cents above minimum wage and I accepted. You then have to get a drug test done at a hospital.

    The one interviewing you will be an LOD or leader on duty. Give examples and experiece on how you will handle a disgruntled customer or to solve an issue.

Mention how you will also try to get a customer to add onto their purchase as they always try to reach sale expectance everyday.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (Saint Petersburg, FL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I applied on a Friday and got a call the following Monday to set up an interview. On the phone they asked me a couple questions like why I wanted to work at Target, do I like working as part of a team etc.

    The in person interview had two parts- one with a Team Leader and the other with the H.R. person. They were both pretty straight forwards, the TL asked a series of questions like "name a time you had to work as part of a team", "describe a time that something didn't go as planned and how did you deal with it", "what would you do if you were helping a guest and you didn't know the answer to their question."

    The interview with the H.R. person was easier, just a couple more basic questions that were easy to answer on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was "Describe a time when something didn't go as planned"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiating, they said they start everyone at $7.75/ hr

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target (La Plata, MD) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Super easy to me. Hr called and asked me to come in for an interview and i choose a time they had open. When i got their I had to take 2 online test again then waited about 30 mins be ready to wait target is slow. All i remember is i had to interviews they wanted me for hardlines but I talked them into letting me cashier. The big question is why do you want to work for target and like 3 hour questions both in the same interview so nothing to hard. you know you got the job if you have to take a pee test but you only have 24 hours.
