Interview

It was a two-interview process. On my second interview the next manager forgot about my interview and had already left for the day. Very unprofessional. Needless to say I left, told them to call me to reschedule, which they did not. Then I received an email from Target saying I did not get the job! Nobody even apologized to me.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Colorado Springs, CO).

    Interview

    I applied online and they called me in a couple weeks later for an interview. When i did the interview they said they will call me back about scheduling since they still had to figure out which positions were available and talk to their boss. They emailed me a week later saying that they were sorry but all positions had been filled. I was mad that they even bothered to interview me.

    Straight to the point behavioral questions to see if you can handle a whole department alone and generate revenue. Good position to have before starting your first semester of college

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Hudson, WI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Lady over the phone clearly didn't care about my availability, position applied for or even my preferred first name (opting to go with my Legal one instead). Tried to tell me Sales Associates have to have open availability but tried to push me towards a cashier position which I was not really fond of. Then offered an overnight position where I could make the "Big Bucks" via a shift differential (She said $10 was the pay for overnight, meaning $8 was regular pay). After an in person interview was scheduled the next day I called and declined the interview. I am unsure as to who I spoke with, if it was their HR or a manager, but she burned any interest I had in this company with her negligence of my application.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Our Sales associates require open availability, but front-end cashier positions allow for more flexibility, was that something you were interested in?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (Brookhurst, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call about a week later to schedule interview, had a 2 part interview.

    Dress sorta formal/casual. Went with formal just to be safe but had black buttoned down dress shirt tucked in with skinny sorta reddish/purplish pants. Was gonna wear red pants cuz it fits with the color of the company being red but it was too bright so didn't seem appropriate.

    1st interview was more of an ice breaker, them trying to get to know you. Few scenario questions and past experiences, hobbies, etc. 2nd interview was a bit more serious, more scenario base questions and some past experiences.
