    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target in May 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter through email. I would definitely advise anyone to get a recruiters email (go on to linkedin to find a recruiter) , if you are serious about working for this company. Contacting a recruiter seems to be the best way to actually getting an interview. Once I was contacted, we set up an interview time. So the first interview was over the phone. If you prepare, you will be fine. Make sure you also prepare yourself for the easy questions like "Tell me about yourself and Why do you want to work for Target". On top of those questions, the interviewer asked about 5 questions dealing with a specific event (i.e. Tell me about a time....). After the first interview, I was contacted that same day to schedule an in person interview with 3 different managers (district manager, store manager, and human resource business partner). My second interview was scheduled within a couple of days. It was the same style as the first interview. They may ask you the same questions. Don't be afraid to repeat your same answer. After the interview, I was told that if they wanted to pursue to the next step I would be contacted. Sure enough I was contacted a few days later to schedule my final interview with the big boss (market leader). My third interview was conducted over the phone and once again its the same style. I was contacted the next day and offered the position. I told God when he blessed me with this position that I would try to help people get to where I'm going. So my advice would be to prepare as much as possible with the interview questions that is provided on this website, research on Target, ask yourself what are your strengths/weaknesses, who are you as an individual (they really want to get to know who you are), relax, pray, and be yourself. A lot of people may say they are going to work you, well all jobs will work you but target will compensate you very well. Good luck and I hope this post helps you. It is an intense interview process but its quick. Process took a little over a week........ The interviewers are really really nice. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    I showed up ten minutes early and got kind of pushed to the side. The questions were repetitive and bland, they seemed eager to get my interview over with. They never contacted me after, not even to say I did not get the job.

    Interview

    The interview process was ultimately pointless. The interviewer seemed lost and confused - and didn't seem to have an understanding of his own role at the company. Although the interview itself went smoothly, it did not leave me confident or optimistic about a position at Target going forward.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Waconia, MN).

    Interview

    I was ten minutes early and a half hour later the interviewer showed up. She was 20 minutes late and quickly gave an interview like she didn't have time for it. I called twice and left her a message for a follow up and she never returned my call and I never got a letter. Target needs to do better with their hiring process.

    I was coming from a job as Team Leader of Publix and after they read my resume and interviewed me I was offered four different jobs. The first being "GSA" (Guest Service Ambassador) which is running the front, counting cash office, telling people when they can have break/meal, calling for back up assistance, telling people what register they are on or if they are watching self checkout etc.. that pays 10.75/hr. The second job was "Market" where you stock and zone food products for $10.75/hr. The third job was a "Hardlines" position which is "if its not clothing or food its hardlines" where you'd just be "stocking and zoning"- making sure the shelves are full and pretty for 10.00/hr. The fourth was "Softlines" which is clothing/fitting room where you just stock and zone clothing all day and if you are at the fitting room you will also be answering the main phone line for 10.00/hr.
