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 Jobs 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 Cupertino Target? What was the hardest job application process you've been through?

I actually applied there one year and the test was pretty weird. There were political questions that had nothing to do with the job description. Sex life questions yes, I felt like I was sending a story to Penthouse at times. But it's not just Target it's the whole online application process. Every online application has anywhere between 50-100 questions. I filled out 8 applications one day and you could imagine what my brain became. The way these tests are set up and designed for even Jesus couldn't get hired! I miss in store applications or simply walking into a store and talking to a manager and getting hired after a quick talk. Online makes it easier to ignore applicants. How do you know anyone reads it?

Is it even legal to ask somebody about their political views or sex life in job applications?
