    Guest Advocate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Target (South Setauket, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online and offered an interview two days later via email. Brief interview - maybe twenty minutes at most with who I'm assuming was a manager. I'm aware Target typically conducts several interviews but this was my only one as they were urgently hiring seasonal employees.

    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (New York, NY (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Referred by a current store director. Great phone interview with the recruiter. Set up for an interview with a different store director quickly. Clearly gave me a courtesy interview of 3 questions, but she told me I’d hear from the DM that week.
    Next morning I received a rejection email from the recruiter. I appreciated the opportunity to interview, but the mixed messages did not leave a good impression with someone whose entire family are dedicated customers.

    ETL Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Long and they had me driving all over the city. The last interview took me over an hour to get to. Not only that the Lady the interviewed me was late and you could tell did not want to be there. We went into a room she throw her bag on the flow then got frustrated that she needed to grab the folder out of it that had my information in it. Not even two questions in you could tell she just was not paying attention. I interviewed with three other people prior to this that all said they would love for me to join their team and then this lady didn't even want to spend a minute to do her job. Major waste of my time and effort. Move one, they are not worth it. After the interview I had a chance to talk to some people that actually work there. Now I am actually happy I didn't get the job, they had nothing nice to say about the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email about one week later to set up a phone interview with someone in recruitment. After my phone interview I was asked to come in for a tour and three separate in-person interviews with two technical designers and the hiring manager. Interviews were very average and highly revolved around Target's four desired behaviors: be accountable, be bold, be creative, and be one team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    STAR based questions (situational, task, action, result). They really wanted to know how you would handle certain situations with guests, because the whole role is basically assisting guests in clothing options. On the other hand you do a lot of refilling tables and putting merchandise on the floor.
