I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Millbury, MA) in February 2015.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Target (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Since I was interviewing in a new location that has yet to be opened I had to go through a series of interviews the first interview was your standard interview asking experience related questions and asking about situations I were in previously which resulted in me getting the second interview which was a repeat of the first interview with majority of the questions from the first interview being asked over. There is also a third and final interview that I didn't get which resulted in me not getting the job

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Applied, they got back in one day. After I called them back to set up interview they set it next day. I get there and do the interview and get to the end of the process and that is when they decide to tell me it's for a minimum wage "Team Member" position, and they had no idea I wanted a leader position even though it said it ON THE FRONT OF THE APPLICATION THEY HAD FOR ME. They said they could call other stores and see if the opening was for them, I was no longer interested at that point. Incredibly unprofessional and soured my previously good opinion of Target.

    Sales Floor Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Summerville, SC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target (Summerville, SC) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I didn't even have a chance to complete the phone interview; let alone one in person. The "Hiring Personnel" from the store contacted me to confirm my skills and qualifications. Right in the middle of my response they cut me off and made it know they were was perplexed by my availability. Having optional family obligations on Sundays, I put no availability on the whim that I may still get a call back, to which I further explained to them I could potentially be open; I had just put that there to see if it could be arranged.

    I was then lectured for about five minutes about how full time employees must have completely open availability, that I am to work whenever and however many consecutive shifts as they require, employees are not permitted to hold jobs at other retail companies, and the very aspect of not having open availability on my application makes me look bad in the eyes of management and the interview process.

    I understand having even one weekend day off a week in retail is unheard of; I have worked in retail for more then eight years and already have that expectation. My gripe is, even with that clearly stated on my application, they called me anyway, and the fact that I stated it was by no means a deal breaker, they continued to lecture me on the topic of availability; instead of moving on to another topic.

    After I was given permission to speak again, I clarified some additional points with them to which they responded (irrelevant to my stated concerns) with how many applicants had already applied and if I was still interested in the job I could maybe expect a "Manager" to contact me for an in person interview

    Not only did I feel insignificant in the eyes of a potential future employer, but they never even allowed me to answer their original question posed to me: my skills and qualifications.

    I'm hope these practices are not standard of Target and this was (hopefully) just the "Hiring Personnel" merely having a bad day, however I truly have to question the culture at Target if this behavior is the norm and how this bad egg fell through the cracks. Not only did this interaction negatively impact how I feel about Target as an employer, but also how I feel as a customer that their stores are potentially ran by management who cares nothing for their employees work life balance or personal lives.

    Interview Questions

    • "Why don't you have open availability?"   Answer Question
    • "Do you want the Executive Team Lead to contact you with a in person interview?"   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Through just my limited interactions with the people in charge of the hiring process, I felt that further pursing a career with Target would inhibit my work/life balance. The phone interview was conducted so unprofessionally that I am questioning if I should continue to patronize the company as a consumer.
