    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went through the entire process just to be told my schedule (which they already knew my availability from day 1) didn't work. I was also kept waiting for almost 30 minutes and then told that they had to change who was doing the interview. Very disappointed with this experience.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, a few days later I got a call and we set up a phone interview for the day after that. They asked a few situational questions and then said they'd call me in about two days if I got the second interview. They called me 3 hours later that day and we set an interview up for a week after that. When I got there I had to fill out some paperwork that asked some questions but you usually have to do it on the computer. Then I had to watch a video about the position I applied for. Then I was taken back for the interview and she asked a few questions (situational). I thought I did well and she always answered back with a positive response like "excellent". I called the next morning to see when I'd get a call to see whether I got the third interview or not and the lady that answered the phone said "Elizabeth is the one who interviewed you, she must have put your application in the denied folder because I haven't gotten anything to call you" I asked her if they planned on even calling me to tell me I didn't get it and she said they typically don't do that. I don't know what was up with that lady but until I talked to her I thought everything went good. Mustve been my experience. They really want you to be all about the guests. Which I was. But they probably don't want to hire inexperienced people.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Target in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in the store on a Wednesday, received a call to set up a phone interview that following Monday. The phone interview was scheduled for the next morning on Tuesday. Call came in about 20 minutes late, though did last a little longer than the estimated time of 15 minutes, or so.

    Questions were standard, beginning with some basic experience and availability questions and then a few situational. All in all, I felt that I did pretty well. Of course I was nervous, but that's common and to be expected. Unfortunately, it likely did not go well from the interviewer's perspective. Oh well.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied at the store on the kiosk. Was a fairly simple process, given the questionnaire. Whether you are called for an interview at all depends on your results from that. Pass - maybe - fail.

    I was called for an interview about a week later (Monday_ and set up the initial screening process, or first interview over the phone for the next day (Tuesday). For that, standard questions. I should mention that when I was first called to set up the phone interview, the woman I spoke with asked me why I want to work for Target, verified that I had applied for cashier, my availability, and lastly the pay.

    Back to the phone interview, it again opened with my availability and then: "Why do you want to work for Target?" I answered that it's a pleasant environment with a friendly and positive atmosphere. Or something like that. Following that was a few situational questions like "Name a time when this happened and what did you do, etc."

    It lasted about 15 minutes and then, without being told of the next step or receiving any feedback of my process at all, I got a call on Monday to set up an in-person 1:1 interview for the following Tuesday. A week following my phone interview. Dressed up in business casual and arrived early to take another assessment on the kiosk before going in to the office. Was made to watch a short video detailing the position and such.

    Then was taken in to the back and the interview began. Again, they asked about my availability and had me sign to confirm it, this time. "Why do you want to work for Target?" They really, really pride themselves or something, for asking this three separate times. Said the same thing I did the first two times, really. Then they asked about my experience followed by more situational questions. I was nervous for the initial call, nervous over the phone interview, but not all that nervous in person. The interviewer was nice, and easy to speak to.

    Unfortunately, no on the spot offer. Was told that I'd hear back within the week if they wanted a "third" interview or not. Instead what I received was an email rejection three days later. Well... better than not letting me know at all, I suppose!

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call a few days later to schedule a phone interview. Interview went well, was asked about availability and explained what the job entails. They also asked 3 "name a time when.." questions. It was easier then I expected. I was then scheduled for a 1:1 interview a few days later.
    I arrived, completed the questionnaire on the computer and was brought to the back to watch a video about working at Target. I was then interviewed by a very friendly woman, it was very similar to the phone interview.
    She then said they would call me back for a 3rd interview and that never happened.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and it took some time. I got a call the next day inviting me to an interview in the next few days, in which i accepted. I arrived 15 min early. The manager or interviewer was a half hour late, and was not in the least enthused. (after I waited on HER mind you) the interview was terrible. She took me back to a small enclosed room, and began preforming the interview. Reading from a binder. She had no idea what she was doing, nor did she care. I knew then, I was not going to receive the job. She then let me know "we will call you" - YEAH, THANKS,

    Interview Details

    I only got through the phone call process, but I found it to be handled poorly. They call you and give you questions, but they pause after you give your answer and you do not know if it is because they want more information or because they are reading the next question, which can be disorienting.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Target in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online only and got a call 2 months later to set up a phone interview. The interviewer was very nice and patient but the questions were somewhat hard. There was a lot of "when was a time" type questions that required me to stop and think to past experiences. Overall I was very confident about the interview but I got an email 3 days later saying they weren't interested. The entire interview process only took 5 days but was a waste of time and I felt like I wasn't even considered.
