    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I applied online and corporate called me two weeks later. First I had an interview on the phone and then another in person. They have a series of three interviews called the "round robin." They are a great company but their interview questions were worded really strange and tripped me up.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    This interview was for a summer internship with the HR department. This was a panel interview with 3 interviewers, and all three interviewers were pretty nice. The interview was pretty informal and could tell they were genuinely trying to get to know my personality, which is nice coming from a large corporation like Target. The questions they asked were nothing out of ordinary, like greatest challenge you have overcome, your greatest strength and greatest weakness, and tell about a time you dealt with adversity.

    Interview Questions

    • Give us an example of a time you faced a challenging situation and what you did overcome the challenge.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Contacted Target at a University Career fair in February 2014. I was then contacted by a recruiter a few days later to set up an initial phone interview. The phone interview was with a Human Resource Director and took about 30-45 minutes. All the questions were behavioral questions looking for STAR answers (Situation or Task, Action that you took, and Results). I was required to take an online critical thinking and reasoning test, this took about 1 1/2 hours to complete. I was then offered an on-site interview at their distribution center, where I interviewed with various Managers and the General Manager. Same behavioral type questions were asked. I was offered an internship position 2 days later. The entire process took about 1 month.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you made a mistake, and the actions you took to fix it.   Answer Question
