    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    She called me about a month and a half after I applied, I had pretty much forgotten about the job by then. We set up a preliminary phone interview. She called 15 after our appointment and asked me basic questions, it seemed like it went alright but I got an email a week later that said they were pursuing other candidates. Total waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you hear about this job? She was really intent on asking about how I heard about the distribution center and this position. I had to pretty much convince her I was interested in this job. Why would I apply if I wasn't interested?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Target in September-2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very enjoyable. I was contacted by a recruiter and had my first phone interview set up 2 days later. It was just a get to know me and learn more about the company interview. After that we set up the second phone interview for a few days later. The recruiter sent an email with information about the company, the position, and a guide to prepare for the interview. I spent a few hours preparing for the phone interview by:

    1. Reviewing questions posted on glassdoor.

    2. Writing all my stories out on paper and highlighting the key points.

    If I couldn't answer a question I found with one of my stories I thought of more. After the interview she told me I would be hearing back in the next 48 hours to set up the last interview at the distribution center. We set it up for the following Wednesday and were told we would be there from 8 to 12. They gave us a tour of the facility and then had us do 2 interviews with 2 higher ups in the DC. Each asked 4 behavioral based questions. They let us know we'd hear back by the end of the week if they were going forward. I found out on Friday by noon. I spent about 15 hours preparing for this interview. I reviewed my stories a lot and felt well prepared for the two interviews. Had i not taken the prep guide seriously I wouldn't have done so well. I was able to pick a story during the question being asked and started talking as soon as the question was finished. I think they liked that I was well prepared.

    Interview

    I went to the Universities Career Fair and the representative seemed impressed with my resume. She set up an interview time and in a few days before the interview called to make sure I was prepared. They changed the interview to a phone interview, and I felt it went well. There were a few questions about past experiences from my resume and then a few Situational questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Target (Pueblo, CO (US)) in January-2015.

    Interview

    Very long, lasted 6 months overall. They only reason why I am giving a negative review is because I was actually offered the position. They told me they were on a hiring freeze and were waiting on a few Team Leaders to be transferred or let go. I waited an additional 3 months while staying in close contact with the regional recruiter for Target. Finally on the 4th month, I got an email saying I was no longer being considered for the position. I just wished I hadn't been strung along that whole time.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Met the recruiters at a college career fair, they were both very easy to talk to and nice. I had an interview on campus. Pretty basic interview, they asked you to tell them a little about yourself and then three behavior based questions (tell me about a time....). They made you feel very comfortable during the whole process. Really seems like a fun and good company to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • Not super difficult but they asked to tell them about a time you disagreed with a colleague/classmate and how you handled the situation. Use the STAR method to answer all questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Target (Galesburg, MI (US)) in September-2014.

    Interview

    Process took about one week. Applied through recruiter, was contacted via email next day after submitting application and resume. Was asked to take online assessment and would then be contacted to set up a time for a phone interview. Completed assessment and then set up phone interview. Phone interview lasted about 30 mins, a few behavioral questions and the normal "Why Target" and "Tell me a little bit about your background" etc. I felt that the interview went well. Was notified 3 days later that they were pursuing other candidates. I think my supervisory background with another company scared them, I feel that they'd rather groom younger candidates their way rather than bring in someone with experience.

    • Tell me about a time when you had to juggle multiple tasks at once and were unsuccessful at completing all of them.   Answer Question
