Cashier & Guest Service Team Member Interview

Cashier & Guest Service Team Member
Cleveland, OH (US)

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Target in May 2014.

Interview Details I applied on Friday and received a call, which was a mini interview it seemed like. I was scheduled for an in person interview on Monday. I went in and everyone was extremely nice. I first interviewed with Sales Floor Team Leader. She was extremely nice and relatable so the interview seemed more like a conversation. She asked me to tell her about myself, why I wanted to work for Target, basic interview questions. She was really pleased with my answers and so she took me back to the break room and had someone set me up to watch a video. After the video, I had another interview with an ETL who was also extremely nice. Basically asked me the same questions along with a few behavior questions. Just watch the video and pay attention and you'll do fine. After, I was hired on the spot and went to go do my drug testing.

Interview Question – When was a time you made a mistake on a project and what did you do to correct it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate. I was offered $8.00/hr.

Executive Team Leader Interview

Executive Team Leader
Cuyahoga Falls, OH (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in November 2011.

Interview Details They are very difficult to interview with if you're not ready for STAR questions. Also, they use tactics against you to test you. One of the interviewers may be extremely rude and hard to talk with, on purpose. It's just to see how you react. Oh, and the pay is not remotely worth the stress and agony people. You make like the flashy prospect of 45k a year... but you'll be a slave. 60 hours a week or more and treated like dirt. I'm happy I turned down my offer.

Interview Question – Explain a time where you had to deal with a difficult employee.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Decided the stress and drama were not worth it.

Target Sales Associate Interview

Target Sales Associate
Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH (US)

I applied online - interviewed at Target in November 2013.

Interview Details When I arrived (half an hour early) I was taken to a kiosk to fill out an assessment. I was then instructed to wait in the snack bar until called. Half an hour after my scheduled interview time a sales person came out to tell me the manager would see me shortly, she was eating lunch! When the manager came out to speak to me it was the very same woman who had walked by me three times in the past half hour on the way to retrieve something from the snack bar.

I was taken to a room and asked to sign papers agreeing to certain work hours. That was before ANY type of description about job, pay, benefits, etc. I was then asked the standard questions. I had to inquire about the pay since that information wasn't offered to me. I was then instructed to watch a dvd and "someone" else would be in to interview me but that it might be awhile. I mentioned that I had another interview in 3/4 of an hour. (By that time I had already been there well over an hour). The manager left the room and the dvd sound went out and I was unable to finish watching the dvd. After waiting for 15-20 mins I finally tracked down someone and told them I would have to reschedule another day because I had another appointment.

Needless to say, I won't work for Target and I doubt I'll even shop there any more. The total disrespect to me and my time is inexcusable.

Interview Question – The most difficult part was getting pertinent information.   Answer Question

Electronics Team Member Interview

Electronics Team Member
Columbus, OH (US)

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details The interview process was handled very well. The application process took some time but calling in and being persistent got me through for an interview. There was only one interview for me. Split into two parts. The first part was done by a more senior sales floor team member. That second was done by higher store management. Both seemed to go over the same points. But one seemed to go over more personality based questions. The other one was more for skills. The regular stuff... "Name a time you solved a problem with another co-worker to reach a compromise" ... "When was a time that you stepped up to learn a new skill to complete a task" - And more things like this.

Interview Question – "Name a time you had to solve a problem between two guests in a retail environment"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. The job was part-time and they seemed to have a base pay for someone with the experience i possessed.
