    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.

    Interview

    Long, unnecessary for the job, interviewers did not really want to interview me, frustrating as timeline kept changing, no room for variations, interviews done on the phone, interview questions given were not the ones used

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Three stages, met with store mgr who also had to approve the interview, seemed like a lot of interviews for a low paying position. In the end the interview was easy, but I was there for three hours total meeting with all of these different folks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I went in to Target for an interview in the morning. I was told to go to guest services and from there they escorted me to the back room. I eat and waited 15 min for someone to interview me. The questions he asked me sent exactly the same but it's what the context of it was. I'm still waiting for a call back so I'll update this when I get a response. My advice is to find out what job you want in the store, it was either back room or grocery department for me. Ask the person who escorts you to the break room what department needs more people.
