    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Clearwater, FL).

    Interview

    I received a phone call asking if I was available for an interview. They were very flexible with working with me. My first interview was amazing, there were two people and they both gave their background and had a real conversation. They like for you to use the STAR method when answering their questions. I was offered a second interview.
    For the second interview the executive lead was 25 minutes late saying that she thought the interview was at a different time and then asked me a few questions, some the same as the first interview. This lasted 5 minutes, the quickest interview I ever had. She said she had more interviews and wished me a great day.
