I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in May 2013.

Interview Details Applied online, was called 4 days later and scheduled a phone interview for the next day. Phone interview was basic questions about past work experience and how I handle customer service. Scheduled an in person interview for the next day. Consisted of a short interview with the same questions from the phone interview with a manager then watched an employee video. Had a second interview with another manager and was asked what intrigued me most about the video and about working at Target. She told me I would receive a phone call if I am hired and an email if not.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you implemented a change in a group and what were the results?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Target in July 2013.

Interview Details Just a few days after filling out Target's lengthy online application, a representative of the store called me to schedule an interview. They only ask a few questions, at least for the more basic positions, but the interviewer was visibly displeased when I mentioned that I only had a single semester of school left before graduating. I doubt that they would be too eager to hire someone that was unlikely to stick around after graduation.

have the available hours they were looking for during the longtemporary holiday season.I was very disappointed. If I should apply again, I will be sure to have more flexibilty with my hours so as to be screened.

Interview Question – The most difficult question is how to handle an angry customer.   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Target in November 2013.

Interview Details The interview process was a nightmare. After getting the run around for a week, they got me in for a second interview, which was face to face. The initial interview was done over the phone. Most of the questions asked during the face to face were "what if" questions. Although I didn't get a job offer, I was kind of relieved. Actually, I know that I was overqualified! The interview process seemed really unorganized and I couldn't even imagine what it would have been like if I got hired. The manager interviewing me mentioned that they had several team members leave so, they were looking to add more cashiers for the upcoming holidays. Hmm, I wonder why!?

Interview Question – I thought the interview were pretty straightforward!   Answer Question

I applied in-person - interviewed at Target in October 2013.

Interview Details I had a phone interview and then asked to wait for a call from HR to schedule 1 on 1 interview. HR called and we set up date for interview in a couple days. Was told to come in and finish assessment before I went in for interview. Showed up 30 min early to do assessment before interview. Went in and talked to lady at front desk who took me to a room to watch a video that was about 6-10 min long. After the video I went into a different room and talked to the store team leader.
