Difficult Interview

Executive Team Leader Interview

Executive Team Leader

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in May 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter through email. I would definitely advise anyone to get a recruiters email (go on to linkedin to find a recruiter) , if you are serious about working for this company. Contacting a recruiter seems to be the best way to actually getting an interview. Once I was contacted, we set up an interview time. So the first interview was over the phone. If you prepare, you will be fine. Make sure you also prepare yourself for the easy questions like "Tell me about yourself and Why do you want to work for Target". On top of those questions, the interviewer asked about 5 questions dealing with a specific event (i.e. Tell me about a time....). After the first interview, I was contacted that same day to schedule an in person interview with 3 different managers (district manager, store manager, and human resource business partner). My second interview was scheduled within a couple of days. It was the same style as the first interview. They may ask you the same questions. Don't be afraid to repeat your same answer. After the interview, I was told that if they wanted to pursue to the next step I would be contacted. Sure enough I was contacted a few days later to schedule my final interview with the big boss (market leader). My third interview was conducted over the phone and once again its the same style. I was contacted the next day and offered the position. I told God when he blessed me with this position that I would try to help people get to where I'm going. So my advice would be to prepare as much as possible with the interview questions that is provided on this website, research on Target, ask yourself what are your strengths/weaknesses, who are you as an individual (they really want to get to know who you are), relax, pray, and be yourself. A lot of people may say they are going to work you, well all jobs will work you but target will compensate you very well. Good luck and I hope this post helps you. It is an intense interview process but its quick. Process took a little over a week........ The interviewers are really really nice. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in September 2013.

Interview Details – easy, just be confident and show off your leadership qualities. Target is looking for people that can work with a team and get results. Innovation is a plus, but be yourself, don't try and fit a mold, different types of leaders are needed for different roles, and at different times.

Interview Question – situational questions   Answer Question

Flow Team Member Interview

Flow Team Member
San Antonio, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in June 2013.

Interview Details – First I applied on-line and waited for about 3 days then I called the store so that I could speak to a hiring manager. Then she set up an telephone interview with me. After my telephone interview I had a face to face interview. The interview questions were fairly easy. Then they told me all the positions they had available and I choose flow team because they were paid 8.25 and it was only 3 days a week mandatory. But I was able to cross train for cashier so I could pick up more hours

Seasonal Cashier Interview

Seasonal Cashier
Albany, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – The hiring process was fairly simple, I was placed in a room where others were waiting to be interviewed, and initially I thought that it would be a group interview. However, that was not the case. They called you back one by one and you were first interviewed by a TL or Team Member and then if they liked you, they would ask you to go back and wait to be called again for a second interview (which would be done from the Manager). After that, they will tell you if they liked you or not, and I got offered the job on the spot.

Interview Question – There wasn't any real difficult questions, they were your typical behavioral type such as: "Tell me about a time where you worked as a team to accomplish a goal" or "what are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?" "If a guest told you that the price of the item was 7.99 verses 9.99, what would you do?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate because the offering pay was $9 per hour and after seasonal, it increased to $9.25

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Minneapolis, MN

I applied in-person and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at Target in March 2014.

Interview Details – Hiring process at Target is about 3 weeks. First week you will be going through some aptitude test, verbal reasoning, logical, math and intelligence tests. Second week if you pass you will go through a panel where they will ask you mostly standard interview questions like your strengths and weaknesses, and what do you want to be after five years. And the third weeks is about contract details and meeting the staff. A good way to prepare for the interview is using career and selection books or there are some app's like (the aptitude interview) app in appstore.

Interview Question – At the second week i got a question from the panel interview and it was like sell me your dream, any dream of yours?   Answer Question
