It does, but it is also a chance for a stellar employee to get hired permanently. During this time there is a huge change over in staff, many of the permanent staff leaving.

Could it be your computer keeps booting you off? Go for the stopping in at Target way..sounds a lot easier.

Not just Target people who need jobs have to go through so much to get a job and I was using Target as one of the examples.

No it's actually 45 minutes and they want you to ignore everything else in your life to fill out the application for 45 straight minutes. I was applying just to see if they would call me back not interested in working there and then found out you have to stay focused on the application. I was going to complete through out the day and go back to it but that's not possible.

I know how much of a pain in the butt it is. Then I had to keep reminding Target how they never called me(I know they were conducting interviews for a seasonal job...Target hires just about anybody for seasonal work) and they finally set up an interview for me...it was THREE interviews. They went by so quickly though.

I always make sure I have absolutely nothing to do for the next few hours just in case because I know how long most applications are. I was applying at CSX Railroad Transportation and they have a long assessment test too, so it's not just retail.

Job Developers build relationships with the local stores by pitching their business and then send their own people. Once those people are hired then the Job Developer has his clients fill out the online application,

They're testing for add. I swear I have it, it's almost impossible to sit for 45 minutes.

That's only if it's not overstaffed. I worked at Target as a seasonal presentation team member/planogram team member during the remodeling phase and they had to let some of us go.
