Getting a Job 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, part-time or seasonal? 

Sounds like if you want to work at 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?

The fact that A.O.L has compared target to Harvard is utterly ridiculous. Target just doesn't hire any dead beat off the street with bad credit and a wrap sheet. I'm sure the ones that don't get hired, will be accepted with open arms at McDonald's or Walmart. The world will always need ditch diggers.
