    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was an internal hire but you meet with the store manager and the executive team lead for assets protection. A lot of the questions have to do with guest interactions so if you haven’t any retail experience it might be difficult. After the interview you wait about a week to be told whether you got the position or not after the hiring staff collaborates on you. If you hire internally you get lots of support from your manager.

    Pretty easy. They ask a lot of softball questions about your life. They will also talk forever about target rewards. Just be relaxed and answer the questions. Piece of cake.

    Things did not go very well. Of course, part of that must have been my fault. I don't know. Maybe. It could have gone better. But what can I say about Target that hasn't already been said.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    The interviewer was not very inviting. The questions were incredibly long-winded and complicated. Much of the questions regarded very specific, detailed scenarios. They were difficult to follow and answer effectively.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your five year plan? (This one's a good one, and also very common, so always be prepared for it!)   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Target (Dallas, TX) in July 2020.

    Interview

    They ask you a series of questions from their list. The interview was very redundant with their questions which made it hard to give fresh answers. They want specific scenarios over and over.
