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.

They just asked me what I would do with an upset customer, why I want to work here, and a couple of situational questions with specifics. My interview was today and I got hired on the spot. Im a junior in high school and this is my first job and im super pumped! Im going to be paid $12/hr and right now im only working seasonal but im hoping to stay after the holidays are over.

Interviewed for an Executive Team Lead position after recieving an email from a recruiter. Four interviews over three weeks. Didn’t receive an offer or a personalized response just a generic email that stated it was against Target’s policy to offer feedback to external candidates.

Applied a week or so before being called into an interview. Sat down with the interviewer to discuss my life choices, who I knew in town, and how lucky I'd be to be considered for a temporary position at Target. I doubt they will call, and I'm glad to not have to endure working here.

Process was very prompt. Submitted application on a Saturday and got called on Monday for an interview that Thursday. Came in Thursday and was offered a second interview on Friday about 24 hours later. At the end of the second interview I was told I would be set up with a position and to come in for orientation Monday the following week. No drug test. Very short and overall a great hiring experience. From application to receiving the position it took 6 days.

All situational questions. Even though I had plenty of retail experience they don’t care about that. The whole interview was just read from a script. Horrible, they don’t really want to get to know you. They interview you like you are trying to be store manager or something. Name a time where you had to improve yourself and how did you do it? Name a time where you where fighting with a coworker or friend ? How did you solve the problem? You have to give specific examples. I told them what I thought I could Improve on stand they said no give me a specific situation. They were rude and actually the person during the interview just kept saying how they want to go home .
