    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.

    There was an initial phone screen with HR which explained the TLP followed by asking about some of the internship experience on my resume and my comfortability with different programming languages.

    They ask typical interview questions to gauge your experience in working with customers and being a team player. You are interviewed and asked questions by two different managers. They are very friendly and the questions are very typical of what you would expect an interviewer to ask for customer service type jobs.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I went in to Target for an interview in the morning. I was told to go to guest services and from there they escorted me to the back room. I eat and waited 15 min for someone to interview me. The questions he asked me sent exactly the same but it's what the context of it was. I'm still waiting for a call back so I'll update this when I get a response. My advice is to find out what job you want in the store, it was either back room or grocery department for me. Ask the person who escorts you to the break room what department needs more people.

Pros: “Depending on how many redcards you get, they give you some rewards like a giftcard, free movie, food. Easy people to get along with. Just scan things and make sure prices align. Not too bad.”“Depending on how many redcards you get, they give you some rewards like a giftcard, free movie, food. Easy people to get along with. Just scan things and make sure prices align.
