Executive Team Leader - Logistics

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Target in November 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process is very rigorous. My suggestion would be to think about the skills that are listed on the job description and develop a story behind it. Have about 5 stories that showcase each group of skill sets so you can refer to it. Don't worry about being perfect. List also how you have changed or adjusted to your company.

Interview Question – I had to travel a lot. From Brooklyn, NY to White Plains. This was a 5 hour trip going and coming.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate.

Executive Team Leader - Logistics
Houston, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in August 2012.

Interview Details – Went through 7 interviews. Met 2 Store Team Leaders, 1 District Team and the rest all by phone from around the US.

Interview Question – All the questions were pretty basic, nothing caught me off guard. Just don't tell them you'd fire everyone who doesn't perform, it's an HR's nightmare.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You can always negotiate, but they'll, most likely, shut it down until they can see what you can do. Just make sure you know which location your going to go because this will be the key to your success. Failing facilities will kill any chance of being promoted and "trust me" there way too many things for any one person to fix (if your that person who can change the world). The cost will always out way the benefit for you personally.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in February 2014.

Interview Details – I was interviewing for an internship. They really want people who will work for them after the internship. It involved a phone interview with a local store manager and then a Skype interview with your respective district manager. The questions were Situation, Action, and Results style. When interviewing for an internship, be sure to go into it with the intentions of working for Target afterwards.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you had to turn something down.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – Process involved three interviews -- two by phone and one via video teleconference. Target's standard interview questions ask you a question and they expect a three part answer: describe the situation, explain what you did, and describe the outcome. You really need to hit all three parts to get "credit" for the answer. Each interviewer's question set is similar but not exactly the same as the previous interviewer. They all have access to what you answered previously so make sure you have different answers.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you failed   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate.

Las Vegas, NV

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Target in March 2013.

Interview Details – Went through one of Target's open house which was an invitational to prospective ETL's. From there, you got to meet General Managers from other stores and ETL's. Interview with as many as you can. Then if you pass you get another interview at their other location. Most of the questions are situational so just be prepared to answer what if scenario's.

Interview Question – This was the meet and greet at Target's open house - "What are your strengths and weaknesses?"   Answer Question

Executive Team Leader - Logistics
Wichita, KS

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in November 2010.

Interview Details – Initial communication consisted of a telephone interview with a few questions to determine experience, thought process and availability for one on one interview. Lasted about 30 minutes.

One on one interview was conducted at a store location that was 1 hour away with the Store Team Leader. Went through a quick round of introductory questions and then moved to 4 STAR type question (situation, actions, results). Lasted about 1 hour.

Next interview was with the actual STL of the store where I would be working and the District Team Leader. Again, intro questions, STAR scenarios and questions about goals, drives, etc. Lasted 1.5 hrs.

Interviews are not hard - just tedious with all the same questions. Do your self a favor, practice 6 scenarios of what you have encountered in your career and memorize them. Also, it works great when one or two of those start out with a failure - show you learned from it, regrouped and enhanced your skills.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about a time you encountered a difficult co-worker and needed them to be on board to get a task accomplished.   View Answer
  • Tell me about a time you had to meet a tight deadline and did not have enough resources to do so?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Job offer came by phone, you can tell there is a limited range for salary negotiations and I was coming off of a long period of unemployment so, guess what? I took their initial offer to be safe.

Executive Team Leader - Logistics
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Target in January 2012.

Interview Details – They are very thorough in their hiring process. I had to go to a lot of interviews, and do a lot of online testing. However, the intervies are all VERY simillar. They ask a lot of the same questions,and they are somewhat predictable. Everyone I interviewed with was very professional and polite. My suggestion is to show energy and authenticity in the interview. Also, they are looking for people who can answer the situational questions in their format (description of the situation, steps you took to solve the problem, and the outcome).

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you did not agree with your superior and how/if you handled it.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Good company but not a good fit at the time.

Executive Team Leader - Logistics
Modesto, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Target in March 2012.

Interview Details – I promised myself I would right a review for Target as soon as I finish with the Interviewing process. I just got a rejection letter with no feedback. I would suggest if you have time to waste please apply to target. It started with me applying back in November and then getting a call from hr in January. She phone screened me and then made me take an assessment. After that scheduled me for an interview with an STL. The interview was behavioral and very easy. Another week or two passed and i got scheduled for another interview with an STL at a different target location. This interview was similar to the first one. Then after another couple of weeks I interviewed with the DTL and he seemed to be in a hurry the whole time. He did not use a packet like the other two STL's did. Just asked me questions on if he were to work for me, what would I like about me as a manager and what would I not like about me. He told me there would be another interview after this one. I thought after almost a month and a half the process is finally get over. Oh no I was so wrong. After the DTL interview they called me in for a store tour after another 2 weeks. The ETL who gave me the tour went way over time (usually lasts an hour, but i was there for 2 hours). He also forgot to give me the drug packet so I had to go back in the next day to go get it. After this there was a two week delay and I was then scheduled for my final interview which happened after another 2 weeks. It was over the phone with two HR reps. It was the same questions asked in the first and second interview. They told me I would hear back in a week and so I did. After 3 months and multiple interviews, they decided to pursue more qualified candidates. I just wish they would have told me sooner that I wasn't qualified so I din't waste my time and gas to drive to different locations.
