Getting Hired at Target: Not so Easy?

Target applicants used to have to complete 704 true/false questions about everything from politics to their sex life.

Looking for a job, either as full time as you can get, or maybe seasonal?

Sounds like if you want to work at Target it's not easy to get in.

An article by AOL suggests it's harder to get into Target than Harvard.

Here's the process at a California Target, according to the article:

"Target's hiring process for its new stores has been designed with military precision. Applicants take an on-spot assessment test, interview with two current employees, and are then escorted to the bathroom for an on-site drug test. If all goes well, they'll get a job offer, assuming their background check comes up clean."

Have you, or are you planning on applying for a position at the ? A caller to the store is told to apply online. Do you have any suggestions for getting hired?

Why does the subtitle of your article stress a hiring practice that Target no longer uses? I'm not in love with Target, but if you're going to criticize them it's only fair to do so on the basis of their current practices.

Good question Jon - The article was meant to be informational, not critical. The subtitle sometimes (hopefully) adds information that may be interesting, but not necessarily directly related to the headline.
