    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target (Bengaluru) in February 2018.


    I had applied through campus placements. It was a one day process.

    First round - Technical aptitude. 11 questions out of which 10 were MCQs related to expected output of given code snippet. 1 coding question

    Second Round - A total of 16 students were shortlisted after first round. We were sent for 1st technical round. Questions were asked mainly based on what was written in resume. I had mentioned about SQL, Java, Android and Git. I was asked a lot of questions based on those.

    All 16 shortlisted students were sent to 2nd Technical round as well. The panel was different this time. They already had reviews from the panel who has taken my first Technical interview. They asked me more questions on Java, projects listed in resume and code snippets of those. They asked some general questions as well.
