Seasonal Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee in Albany, OR
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Target (Albany, OR).

Interview

The hiring process was fairly simple, I was placed in a room where others were waiting to be interviewed, and initially I thought that it would be a group interview. However, that was not the case. They called you back one by one and you were first interviewed by a TL or Team Member and then if they liked you, they would ask you to go back and wait to be called again for a second interview (which would be done from the Manager). After that, they will tell you if they liked you or not, and I got offered the job on the spot.

Interview Questions

  • There wasn't any real difficult questions, they were your typical behavioral type such as: "Tell me about a time where you worked as a team to accomplish a goal" or "what are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?" "If a guest told you that the price of the item was 7.99 verses 9.99, what would you do?"   Answer Question

Negotiation

I didn't negotiate because the offering pay was $9 per hour and after seasonal, it increased to $9.25

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Target (Sparks, NV) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Went through the interview questions thoroughly in September. I answered each one honestly and positively. Have experience in retail and felt I had a good chance at getting a position. Did not hear from them until December and was told in email that they were unable to offer a position at this time. Went into store that day and found they were still hiring for seasonal help. Very confused about the whole process.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview

    Went in, and had to wait in a waiting room for about 15 minutes before I had my first interview. Lasted about 45 minutes. Very nice manager, asked basic interview questions. Got a second interview, and had to go back to the waiting room for another 15 minutes then I was taken to another room to watch a video. After that, I talked to the second manager for about 20 minutes, who pretty much just asked me about my availability.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview

    I used all of the other reviews to make sure I was prepared for my interviews. The first interview was over the phone and that took place on a Wednesday morning. She told me she was recommending me for a second interview and to expect to be called that same day or the next day. I called on Monday because I still hadn't received a call and the individual explained they wanted me to come back for a second interview and that she was very busy. I had the second interview yesterday, Wednesday, so the process has taken about a week.

    Make sure you are prepared for your interview by taking in all of the advice given here. Before the second interview I was required to watch a video about the job I was applying for, make sure you use things stated in that video during your interview.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation they let me know what the starting pay was and I agreed to the amount.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Target (Vista, CA).

    Interview

    I had my target interview at 9:00am , I got there at 8:45am . Once I got there I went to guest services and told them that I had an interview, he then took me to a computer to fill out a questionnaire (like the one on the application where you're put in a certain situation and have to chose the best /worst answer)that took about 10-15minutes , I then went to guest services again to let them know I was done with the questionnaire, he then told me to go wait at the Starbucks that's inside target . I sat there for about 5 minutes, then a lady came to get me (she was really nice amd made me feel more relaxed ) . We then went into an office and she started interviewing me ,like I said before she made me feel like I could relax and just have a conversation with her . We went over my application , she then started going over my work experience. After that she went over the seasonal cashier position and hours I was willing to work , if I could have a flexible schedule or not and that it pays $10/hr. The first question she asked was "if I were to ask a previous supervisor/teacher what would they say your strengths and weaknesses are ?". Then she asked "why do you want to work at target" . These next questions are out of order but this is what they asked , "tell me about a time when you worked in a group to accomplish a task, and how did it turn out " , " tell me about a time when you made a mistake and how did you resolve that mistake " , " tell my about a time when you had a lot of different tasks you had to accomplish by a certain time and how did you choose which one you were gonna do first " . That was the first interview , then another lady came in and asked the same questions about work experience , experience that can be useful to the Job you're applying for and why you want to work at target and strengths/weaknesses . She then started asking the scenario questions ,"what would you do if you scanned an item and it was 19.99 but the customer said the price tag 17.99" , " A costumer is looking for shoes for her 3 year old son but can't find the specific size . What would you do ? " and the last question was " tell me about a time when you over exceeded someone's expectations , what did you do ? And what was the out come ?". She then had me sign some papers stating that I can leave target at any time before the 90days or target can let you go before the 90 days,and papers about getting a background check . She then told me that I got the job.Now I'm just waiting to get scheduled for orientation. Good luck to those of you that are going in for interviews . Some tips are , don't think about your answers for too long , SMILE , be friendly , and be confident.
    BTW I applied online,I then got a call about a week later on 11/11/14 ,missed that call called back on 11/12/14 scheduled an interview for Thursday 11/13/14 and got hired that same day .

    Interview

    I applied online and they called me the next week and did a screening (kinda unexpected, i was caught off guard) The lady asked why i wanted to work at target and what my availability was like. Then she set me up with a phone interview for the next day. The phone interview was about 10-15 min long, your typical strength & weakness, situational questions. Then he set me up with an in store interview for the next day. I went and had to answer more questions at their computer kiosks. Then was directed to the back room to watch a video and had the interview after that. He just asked questions similar to the phone interview and offered me the job on the spot. I have orientation next week. & i have 2 years exp cashiering in a restaurant if that helps.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    The process for the interview is a little bit different than other retail employers. I had to interview with a total of 3 different people. My initial interview was at 10:00am, then I had another interview at 10:15, and the last one around 10:45am. All of the interviewers asked the same question just in a different way. It was very interesting but I believe the interviewers wanted to see if the potential employee was going to change their answers during the interviews. There was also a personality assessment that you can take at the store or online before you come. After my three interviews I was offered the job and started my training for the position the following week.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewing process is the most difficult but not hard because of the similarity of questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked was the pay negotiable but it was not due to the position being seasonal.
