    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target (Harrisonburg, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    General questions, such as what was your hardest time and how did you overcome it? or How did you use your leverage in previous working place? Seems like they ask same questions to everyone and select anyone most fitting. I don't think they are considering interns as real employees

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Target in February 2016.

    Interview

    I met recruiters at my university's career fair and applied online through my university. About two weeks later I was notified that I had been selected to interview for the internship in weeks. I was asked to complete 3 tests online (Reasoning, Personality, Situational) before the interview. The day before the interview there was a meet and greet where you got to meet the recruiters and others interviewing. This was more to help you relax and have any questions answered about the internship, the company, and the interview. The next day I had an interview with a director of the department I applied for (Business Analyst Intern - Merchandise Planning). Nothing too hard, all behavioral and 1 business situation question so practice, practice, practice. I personally don't think I killed the interview, but I connected with the recruiter, asked good meaningful questions (VERY IMPORTANT), and answered the most important ones like 'Why Target?' and 'Tell me about yourself." very well. My advice is to make sure to show them your personality and not sound like a robot with rehearsed answers, show them that you really want to work for Target, and most important SMILE. The following week I got my offer. No pay negotiations.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Tell me about yourself.
      2. Why Target?
      3. Tell me about a time you made a great impact.
      4. Tell me about a time you worked in a team.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target in October 2015.

    Interview

    I signed up for an interview at the career fair at my university. It was a one on one interview with a lady who worked in HR. She asked me to tell her a little bit about myself and what I'm interested in doing. She then asked me a few (3 or 4) standard interview questions. At then end she asked why I was interested in Target and if I had any questions for her. Pretty basic interview..
