    It was very simple, so basic questions but I got nervous so I couldn't get the job. They ask you questions about how you work with other and previous job experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    They called me the following day for an interview. Very easy hired on the spot. Scheduled orientation on a day I told them I couldn’t work, they told me they would get me in the next round and they put a note that I couldn’t work that day. (Even though I told them in the interview) they called again for an orientation on that same day i can’t work. Very frustrating

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Target (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straightforward, if the individual is prepared or naturally articulate in communication. Your success will be judged on how well you provide an answer to the situational questions they will ask, but they are all fairly simple questions if given some thought.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you were interrupted and how you handled it.

      Tell me about a time you worked with an employee you disagreed with and how you handled it.

      Tell me about a time you were able to change a situation with your attitude.

      Tell me about yourself.

      Do you have any work experience?

      Why do you want to work at Target?

      All in all, I applied online on Friday and then received a interview call the following Saturday and was asked if I could come in on a Sunday for an interview.

      I believe the basis on which they judge you would be the situational questions they will ask you after a few introductory questions. I was asked 4 situational questions. After the situational questions, I was asked if I was willing to take on both cashier and sales associate.

      Although I stated I did not get the offer, I do not know yet if I've been officially rejected. I was told to wait for about a week for further notice. While waiting, I received 2 unclear probable rejection emails each on different days.   Answer Question
