Target has high expectations for its employees.
According to the retailer’s own career page, team members are often encouraged to innovate.
Glassdoor reviews confirm this value, with reviewers saying the company likes to challenge its people.
It follows, then, that inteviewers would ask some tough questions of their potentional recruits — and based on Glassdoor’s interview reviews, we can conclude that they do.
Here are some of the most difficult questions people say they have been asked while interviewing for Target:
