Anonymous Interview Candidate

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Target.

Interview

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.

Interview Questions

I didn't negotiate, I was happy with the offer.

    Recruiter at career fair was easy to talk to which lead to an initial interview. Went well, was offered a second interview. Questions intensified and the Store Manager must have believed I wasn't prepared for this position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Target (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Target (Costa Mesa, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I filled out the application in the store at one of their computers by guest service. A week later I got called by HR to set up a phone interview. The following week I had a phone interview with a recruiter that lasted about 20 mins. Most of the questions were based of my resume. I then got asked to come in a week later and interview with a district manager of Asset protection. I was then asked to come back later in the week to interview with the Group market manager of Asset protection, Group HR, and A Market Manager of Stores. This interview was panel style where each of them asked me a set of questions. The majority of the questions were situational. The following week I was offered the position.

    Interview

    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.
