    I applied online. I interviewed at Target.

    It was a two, step process but might be more for others, depending on job. You spoke with an initial interviewer(s) and if they were impressed and wanted to bring on board. You were passed on to someone else for a follow-up interview. If offered the job, they explain the pay, hours and benefits.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    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.
