    Interview

    It was a very short and easy hiring process - 2 weeks. I went through two rounds of interviews with mid level associates to the exec of the team i was applying to. They asked me very short and simple questions and then I had a brief and easy writing test.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Target in January 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting my application, I had a phone interview with a recruiter. About 2 weeks later, I had an in-person interview with a store manager. After another two weeks, I had another in-person interview with the district manager. A week later, I was offered the position.
    Be sure to prepare a few sentences to respond to "Tell me about yourself" describing your education, past leadership experiences, community/ campus involvement and how that ties into Target. Research "STAR Method Interview Questions" because those are the types of interview questions that Target uses.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I believe target has a 3-5 round interview session. They also have an online evaluation test. The test is quite difficult and long. My advice would be to come very prepared. Make sure you study the star method and know an answer for most of the common behavioral interview questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview

    There were a total of three interviews, one phone interview which lasted about 5-10 minutes, another at a target store with a store team leader, and finally with a district manager. The phone interview was very short and consisted of basic questions such as tell me about yourself and tell me about a time you made a mistake. They mainly ask behavioral based questions and use the star method (situation, task, analysis, result). Be sure to hit every one of these points and be clear and organized in your answers.

    They are looking for people with leadership qualities and someone who can work/communicate well with others. Show them you are a team player.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Went to a career fair where I talked to one of the HR people. Was offered an opportunity to interview with them the next morning. The overall interview was a little different then what I'm use to, they will write while you sit there and talk and not actually look at you in the process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus for the Business Analyst role. One round only. Had dinner prior to interview which thought flowed well. All behavioral questions - one case study relative to stocking Target in college town. Make sure you are able to elaborate on your resume points and have questions ready for the interviewer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Iowa City, IA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Most of the questions were behavioral. Clearly they evaluated on the STAR scale. They repeat questions in each interview so be sure to know how you answered the questions before. They write down your answers. Mingle with the interns that are in the waiting room with you. Pretty sure they ask them if you were personable. Have to really show that you're Target's #1 fan.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target (Newton, NC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a phone call from a recruiter the next day. We scheduled a phone interview but before that I had to take a math test online which was pretty hard and some other questions. After my low stress phone interview I was brought in for a plant tour and had two separate interviews after that.
