    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Lansing, MI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Went to Customer Service Desk, checked in with an employee and mentioned I was there for an interview. I was told to sit in the Starbucks (most targets have one or a food service). Then the person interviewing me found me and introduced herself, and we walked to her office in the back of the store. There were 3 parts tot the interview. The 3rd part was meeting with the team manager, where I was offered a position.

    Electronics Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Blue Ash, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Blue Ash, OH) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied as a Cashier on Target’s website for the Blue Ash location. I received a call from HR in a little less than a week to schedule an interview. There was a very brief screening during the call about why I wanted to work for Target and why I would be a good fit.

    The first interview took place about an hour after the call. The second interview was about 10 minutes after the first. Both interviews were very similar. The first question for both was to talk about myself (interviewers paid close attention to how I presented myself). Then there were typical interview questions about how you handled certain situations.

    During the second interview, the interviewer explained that they thought I would be a better fit in Electronics based on my interests. I was hired as an Electronics Sales Associate.

    The orientation took place a few days later in time for Target to complete the background check. Orientation was about 4 hours long. Definitely not boring.

    I was clocking in the next day.

    The entire process was quick and positive. Highly recommend.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Murrieta, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Target (Murrieta, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and then my manager friend asked HR to pull my application. About 5 days later I was called to schedule a phone interview. The interview was about 8 questions. The first four were general questions like "Why do you want to work for target?" "Tell me one of your greatest strengths." Then the next four were situational questions. I was called about four days later to schedule a second in person interview. This interview was very similar with a few general questions followed by a few situational questions. I was told I would be called by the end of the day with an answer either way. However, I wasn't called until two days later. I was offered employment.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    I let the the lady at Guest Service know I was there for my interview and she had me wait at the Cafe until someone came to get me. About ten minutes later I went back to the interview office with a Team Leader and went through the questions. They were fairly easy and most all of them were situational questions. I was told to wait in the office and that I was going to get a second interview right then. A different Team Leader came in and asked me basically the same questions but worded differently. Then I was offered the job on the spot and started two days later.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    They follow the STAR interviewing method by asking a "tell me about a time" where they want to know the Situation, Task, Action, Result. They want to know details and specifics so it's best not to summarize.
