I applied online. Then I went in to check on the status of my application within that week. An HR employee told me they accepted my application and would contact me soon. I got a call a month later from the same HR employee asking me if I was still interested. I came in for my interview at 11:30 AM. They had me wait in the employee lounge, which was connected their store leaders' offices and the interviewing room. I had two interviews with different people (One right after the other) then a different person from HR came in and offered me a "conditional hire". This basically means that after my background check goes through, I got the job.

I had two interviews, one with the department manager and one with a store manager. They asked questions about the position I applied for specifically (Apparel and Accessories) and why I wanted to work there. The second interview I did, she told me she could tell I was nervous and I didn’t answer thoroughly enough, but she offered me a job anyway.

I saw that they were hiring and looking for seasonal team members so I decided to apply online, after a week or so I hadn’t heard anything so instead I called them to ask about the status of my application, from there I talked to the hiring manager about coming in for an interview the next day.
it was a pretty standard interview maybe 10-15 min long, the interviewer asked me about my availability, why I couldn’t work on certain days, and then asked my scenario based questions.
I felt like the interview went well, I liked my interviewer and I felt that she like me as well, after the interview she told me that they were reviewing a lot of applications and that I would be getting a email in the next few day stating whether I should come in for a second interview or if they decided to go with someone else.

Applied online, got called about a week after to do an interview. Went to the interview, got about 3-5 minutes. He asked me to tell about myself, to write down my availability and hours that i could work per week. Then he asked scenerio type questions, but i felt they werent that like work related or idk. For example, to tell a time in which i had to work with a team in a situation to get a task done in a deadline. Other, was like telling a time in which i had to work with a coworker or just another person in which there was a disagreement. After that he was just like “okay, so we have other interviews so we’ll let you know”. I said thank you and then he walked with me outside of the area.

Since i know that most of the people who get the job get a second interview that day, should i just disregard the fact that I’ll be hired or do you think that there’s a chance that I’ll be called back?

I just finished an interview with them and I was so nervous, but the questions were basic. They first ask for your availability, you have to say you’re open or else you won’t get the position. “Tell me about a time where you...” Those type of questions stumped me, but my HR was patient and allowed me to think, even though I must of said some crazy stuff. “Tell me about yourself..” yknow. After the nightmare of an interview you;you go to another interview- not really, it was basically just a review of your availability and I when you should arrive for your orientation. I actually got the job! I’m happy and surprised. I was a mess but I guess they saw through that. You also have to do a background check before your orientation.

For me, there was a job fair. I went through a introduction with my interviewer, clarified my information, then he proceeded to ask me questions about myself, which I answered quite flawlessly. Then he asked me about situational questions which was not work related surprisingly. It was more of what I have I done to influence a situation in my life. I was hired on the spot and he praised me for being the most enthusiastic interviewee he's ever had. I'm a senior in high school, still a minor, but I'm ecstatic to work at Target.
