Target recruitment process

1) Find the Right Opportunity for You

Read our available job postings online and conduct a bit of research by reading some of the information posted on our website to ensure that you find an opportunity that is well-suited to you.

2) Apply

Send in your cover letter, resume, and other supporting documents (if requested in the job posting) to our Careers Inbox. Please remember to quote the appropriate reference number on your application.

3) Telephone, Email, or In-Person Screening Interview

Once we receive applications, we will shortlist and screen qualified candidates. We usually ask a few questions about your experience and what you are looking for, but nothing too in-depth or technical. This is usually a short and friendly conversation with someone in Human Resources (or an email pre-screening questionnaire) - just a chance for us to get to learn a little more about you.

4) Job Assessments (when applicable)

Depending on the position and skills required, you may be asked to do an assessment in order for us to evaluate your abilities. Examples include: writing a sample proposal, completing a drafting test, or testing your computer skills.

5) Interview

Once candidates are passed through the screening and job assessment when applicable, they move on to the final interview. Interviews are usually conducted with the incumbent's supervisor(s) and sometimes also someone from Human Resources. Here they will ask you questions relating specifically to the skills, knowledge, abilities, attributes and experience necessary for the job and determine if there is a fit with Target.
