    Grocery Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Long Beach, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I arrived about 15 min early, waited for about 30 min. I have never been employed, so it would've been my first job. She asked me questions that shouldn't have been asked since I've never been employed, and she had a nasty attitude. Told me my schedule was funky and they never hire unexperienced people... then why did you choose me for an interview. She already prejudged me and it was the worst interview I had experienced.

    The interview and hiring process took only me three days.

After that I had my interview which was fairly new do to them revamping the interview questions for that department. I did have an ETL trannie in my interview I was also asked to do an on the floor drill which was basically to sell a product. Once we can back in the room I was offered a job right away.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had applied online for a part time since I'm still in High School. A week after I applied they called me for a job interview, they had given me Tuesday morning first then they called to reschedule it to Friday morning and didn't have afternoon interviews which meant I had to miss part of school. My first interview was pretty awkward since the guy was asking me from what time to what time I can work and he wanted me to stay to close but during school days Law doesn't permit students to stay at that time he said they needed people to stay and I felt pretty bad since I knew I wasn't getting the job anymore. He told me we would just keep going with it. He asked me basic questions. After being done with that he said they would call me if anything during the week so I left and got a call from the manager she was very nice and said if I was still at target so I can have my second interview with her. She was very nice and offered me the job we worked things out with my schedule which surprised me that she gave me times I wanted and not pushing me to times I can't.
