    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal. The first round was with the store HR rep. I was called back that evening to schedule the second round. The Second interview was a day or so later with the store manager and then a phone interview with the district manager that same day. The questions provided on glassdoor where spot on. Very helpful

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Interview process was a total of 3 interviews consisting of 3-4 personal experience and situational questions each. They were looking for actual examples and a certain format- situation, behavior, outcome. Confidence is a must and they were looking for someone that was willing to lead the group. First interview was with HR, then STL, then the district team lead, all on different days.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the HR TL and went in for an interview. He was very nice and friendly. I felt my conversation with him went well. I was then sent in a tour with another team leader which was unexpected. When I got back i was invited back for another interview win the store team lead. This interview felt a bit awkward. I was told I would hear back the following Monday and didn't hear anything. I called and was told I would know by the end of the week. Woke up to a form email a week later saying I wasn't being offered the position with no explanation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Target in July 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process was very long and disorganized. First, you fill an application and assessment then you wait for a call back. I had to wait at least a week to get a call back from the store that was close to my home. Afterwards, they briefly explain the position over the phone and ask if your still interested then, they proceed with setting up the interview. This is where it gets very disorganized, they schedule the interview based on the management schedule and in my case, the manager was on vacation so I basically had to wait a month, to be seen. Furthermore, when it came time for my interview and I arrived at my location, there was no one waiting for me. I had to go to quest services and explains that I was there for an interview. Moreover, I had to wait over a hour for the manager to come and greet me. When I finally got to the interview, the manager basically asked generic interview questions in a packet that is supposedly the standard for target. There was no attempt to actually great to know me as a candidate, beyond the questions. In addition, my interview kept getting interrupted by store associate coming in to see the manager, without knocking. It's very uncomfortable and unprofessional. Once, the interview was done, I knew I was not going back since this process was a mess for me, I never understand why retail stores want candidates to jump over hoops for these jobs. They are low paying jobs, and they don't treat candidates with respect. I now understand why target has positions that been open for months, since they don't treat candidates well. Luckily, I was able to receive an offer from a better company. Target was just my backup and after the way I was treated, I would never apply there again.
