    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty simple although I never heard back from them afterwards. I thought that was a bit strange I feel as though companies should at least give prospective employees the courtesy of informing them if they have decided to go with someone else.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for and interview after applying online. They had forgotten that I was coming and I had to wait 45 minutes for the interview. I was interviewed by two people that asked me very similar questions. They told me they would call in 3-4 days about a hiring decision. Two weeks later I received an e-mail saying I was not going to be hired. They were very unresponsive and clearly we very uninterested in me.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received phone call and scheduled an interview date. Went to interview by speaking to front desk. I was told to wait for the interviewer to be available, so I sat down on a bench inside. I assume there were two other people before me as I had to wait 30 minutes after my scheduled time before being called in. First they have you watch a job expectations video then the interview starts. The interview was as typical as interviews get including questions like, "Tell me about yourself.", "Tell me about a challenge or conflict you've faced, and how you dealt with it." and, "Why do you want to work here?" Two weeks after the interview I received a phone call politely declining me.

    Executive Team Leader - Logistics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Albany, NY

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Target in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I'm currently separating from the United States Army and I applied online back in August 2014 for the executive team leader in training position in Albany, NY. I was finally contacted in November 2014 by a Human Resources Recruiter and conducted a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 40 minutes. The Human Resource Recruiter asked me questions about my military back ground and then provided a brief description of the leadership structure at Target and then asked me how my Military History fit into those leadership roles.

    I explained that my military experience was similar to both the Executive Team Leader position and Store Team Leader. The recruiter then asked me four behavioral based questions for the store team leader position. All the questions can be found on the reviews and I had rehearsed pretty thoroughly before the interview. The focus of the behavioral based questions is to determine if you have the ability to work in a team, lead a team and resolve conflict. You need to be able cite good examples.

    Once the phone interview was complete, g the HR stated that I would be an excellent fit for the Executive Team Leader position, but she was going to recommend to the District Manager that I be considered for the Store Team Leadership position. I was contacted 20 minutes later to schedule a second interview in person with the store team leader at a Target Store.

    I met with the Store Team Leader five days after my phone interview and she had a packet on me , with three behavioral questions. I had rehearsed all the questions before hand and blew through that interview in about 30 minutes. The first question she asked was where I see myself in 5-7 years, a time I worked on a project that produce a excellent response from a customer and when I had to build a relationship under difficult circumstances. She then said I did really well and she was recommending me to go through and meet with the district manager. I'm to be scheduled soon and will provide an upddate when that occurs.

    Interview Questions
    • Why Target and where do you see yourself in 5-7 years. The questions weren't difficult, but the Store Team Leader stated those questions have historically given candidates a hard time.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Target in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    They take HR very seriously at Target. All day, 8 interviews. About half HR, half potential business colleagues. They have decided to get very up-to-date with their business strategy and the new CEO has people very energized. Even if they ding me I should probably buy the stock.

    Interview Questions
    • They threw out the book on behavioral questions. We even joked about it. They just spent time getting to know me and my experience. Very good energy at the HQ. People seemed busy and happy. Remarkably pleasant people and a positive experience.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    The process was very easy and laid back. It was nice to have interviews that were more laid back. I felt some aspects such as, location and information regarding the job, could have been more clear. Other than that the process was smooth.

    Interview Questions
    • "Why Target?" There are so many ways to ask that question that I thought it was difficult to answer.   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Very quick to reply after sending in the application. The application itself is very detailed and long, but since it is all online, it was easy to take a few minutes to finish it or go back and finish if you did not have time to do it all at once. The first interview was done over the phone, also very quick and straightforward. The second interview is done in person.
