    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Coral Springs, FL) in September 2017.

    The interview was fairly easy. They asked easy questions about your previous work history and you experience in the area you applied to. I did both interviews on the same day which took a few about 2 hours. The interviewers were really nice and seemed very interested in what I was saying.

    Backroom Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cockeysville, MD

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Cockeysville, MD) in February 2014.

    Interview

    It's a pretty laid back interview that briefly goes over work history and education but will give you job if you make good enough of an impression. They want you to fit position but aren't looking for anything too amazing.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target in March 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter I worked with was incredibly friendly and I meet her before my interview at a career fair which made the process a lot more comfortable. Interview was more intense than I expected, all behavior based and they make a lot of marks/comments when you are talking. Told me I could take a second if I needed to answer a question but did make a small mark on her paper when I did. Overall great conversation though and the interview flowed well.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target in September 2017.

    Interview

    I've always wanted to work for Target and was recruited by a current team member. I applied online, and got a call back a few days later to schedule an interview. I had my first interview with one of the managers and then directly after that I had my second interview with the HR manager. After the interview she basically said she wanted me on the team and presented me with a job offer. A few days later I was called to come into orientation the following day. Honestly just be super friendly and if you don't know the answer to one of the situational questions just say something like "in a situation like that it's important to be..." and so on. If you're thinking about applying make sure you have a very open schedule because, especially in the holiday season, they're going to want you to work a lot. Also it's okay if you answer the same thing for the questions in different interviews.

    • Describe a time when you were interrupted in the middle of a task.   Answer Question
    • If I called one of your managers what would they say is an area of strength for you?   Answer Question
