    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Target (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with HR. Then I was invited back to me with three other people from the team. I also had to do an online test which consisted of an IQ and personality test. The test was hard and many people that I spoke with agreed that the test was tricky and they didn't think they would be hired.

    The hiring manager gave me a call with some attitude like they were doing me a favor, however scheduled me for an interview. They made me what up to an hour of the scheduled interview time and to make matters once, I took initiative to find a manager to tell them I was waiting only to be met with disdain.

    Overnight Backroom Team Member Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Target (Mundelein, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for a seasonal overnight backroom position online on a Wednesday night (took about 30 minutes to complete - no resumé needed), and got a call the next day asking to come in for an interview on Friday. The whole process was very easy (this was my first REAL interview, as the only other job I've had wasn't obtained with a formal interview). I wore nicer-ish street clothes and walked up to guest services and told them I was there for an interview, they retrieved the person set to give it, and that person walked me to a back office. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and my first interviewer made small talk before beginning. It starts with the generic "tell me about yourself" then goes into situational questions. These can vary from interview to interview, but if you spend 20 minutes reading others' questions on Glassdoor and rehearse answers, you'll be fine. Basically, as long as you can sound confident, through, and immediate, they'll probably like whatever you have to say. Then the first interviewer left and a second came in, and the process was basically repeated (with different questions). I was then walked to a supervisor and my interviewer asked her to write me a job offer right there. That person talked to me for a few minutes, we set up an orientation date, and i was all set to go! A job in 3 days time.

    Interview Questions

    • Read what other posters have put as everything you could be asked is on Glassdoor, but be prepared to say what you gained or what the result of each situation you describe is, as I was asked multiple times at the end of my answers/stories to expound on this.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview

    Spoke with 3 interviewers. Very casual and friendly. Easy to ask questions and negotiate schedule. Even asked opinion which position is best fit for me. Hourly is set and non-negotiable. Early morning shift gets differential pay increasing pay from $8 (or $8.25) to $8.75 so I was told.

    Negotiation

    Schedule was negotiable, and they were somewhat flexible. Though certain blocks of time are non-negotiable. Pay was not negotiable. But I was offered my choice of 3 similar positions, and I decided based on schedule. I needed early mornings.

You sign some papers and they send you to take a drug test which has to be done within 24 hours. After that you wait for drug and background check to clear. Was called for orientation two weeks after interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The only reason the questions were difficult was because they are all situation-based questions. So you have to think of circumstances that relate to the questions quickly.   Answer Question
