Executive Team Leader - Assets Protection Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Target.

Interview Details

3 different panel interviews. All situation/behavior/outcome based interview guides used. Make sure you go prepared with power stories that you want to share. Leadership is a super important quality. Don't be surprised if the process doesn't go very fast, there are a lot of schedules that need to be arranged when it comes to interviews.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Target in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I began with a phone interview, then had to do an online assessment, after completing an online assessment I got a phone call that my interview was moved up within the next 24 hours. It was scheduled for the following week. At the interview I had four back to back interviews with a ETL, STL, DTL, and a HR recruiter. The final interview is with group management (a VP) over the phone.

    I applied online in July; I got a response via email from HR in mid-September (following with a phone call); completed phone and in-person interviews within two weeks of receiving the initial email.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Target in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at Target is incredibly long and drawn-out. Multiple interviews over many weeks, then weeks spent waiting on a decision, a drug test, and a background check. Make no mistake, by the time they hire you, they have a rough plan for the first 18 - 24 months of your career with them.

    Interview Questions
    • Target uses behavior-based interviews, so the difficulty of the questions will be directly related to your ability to find examples from your job history of the situations presented and to give a satisfying account of the situations.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. The HR Representative made an offer, including salary and benefits, and I had an opportunity either to accept it or not.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Target in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I first applied to this position in July on this year. I received an e-mail after, stating that all positions were filled and that I would receive a notice when a new position became available. Surprisingly, I did receive this e-mail in late September asking me to conduct a phone interview. The next week, the phone interview took place - in which I was asked three questions: 1) Why are you interested in Target? 2) Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years? 3) Give me an example of your leadership experience.

    The next day I received a call to schedule an in-person interview with a store manager. 2 weeks later, this was conducted. I passed this and am now on to the final interview with the District Team Leader.

    Interview Details

    Met the APBP in my college job fair and had a interview back a school just a few days after that. Was contacted shortly after that interview and was scheduled to meet with the APBP and the District Manager at the Home office about a week later. The meeting consisted of two interviews, first with the APBP himself and the Human Resources Business Partner where they ask grueling questions, NOT....Basically just gonna run through your resume and tell you that they once played sports too, which by telling about the way they look, they werent very good. Next interview is with the APBP again and also the District manager this time. Same set of questions, pretty much a meet and great, whoopty do. After this 2 hours process I was sent home. I recieved a phone call a few days later to go to White Stone somewhere I have no clue.....and meet the the vice president of human resources which was pretty much a hi and bye. Job offer was made the next day. Gladly accepted.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Target in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a call back a month later from a campus recruiter. Set up a phone interview, took online assessment and the recruiter never called. I emailed her, and set up another in which I talked to her for 45 minutes. She asked me 5 behavioral based questions. Then, received another email from another recruiter who told me she passed my information along to another recruiter. Waited 3 weeks, and was contacted by another recruiter who set up my in-person interview for 1-3 days after i received her email. I also had to take another online assessment. I have the in-person interview in a few days.

    Interview Details

    Lots of interviews, situational type, group interviews. They required a 2-3 day interview marathon where they put a lot of us up in hotels and had information sessions and group outings. It was fun but most people who I know that took the job left shortly after.

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was for a promotional opportunity. I had been developing for the next step and had interviews set up. I went through a lot of prep (not really needed, but I agreed to it to keep the boss happy). Then the District Team Leader set up interviews with different Group leaders. My interview was with two of them.

    It was the standard 4 questions where I had to give the situation, my actions, and the result. Your success almost depends more on how you answer the question than the situation you give. I made it through and was told that I was placed on the "bench" for ETL-AP a week later. It took 5 months to have a position open up before I could take it.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They tried to just slide an offer in where I would accept it. I had target experience and I was moving, so I used that to push my salary up another 3-4k. Make sure they give you a number and you give a number. They will contact you saying "okay, you will be an ETL for (city) with compensation of $(k), do you accept?" Say no and hit them back, especially when dealing with recruiters, who don't really care if you get it or not. But, if they blow it, the people that want you in their store will be upset, so they will consider your offer and counteroffer. Push it to the max. They won't withdraw an offer of a position just because you ask for more.

    Target puts A LOT of people through interviews before they pick the people they really want. If they want you, they will negotiate. This was the same for my first position at Target in Investigations and now my second. I was able to negotiate more each time.
