Executive Team Leader - Logistics Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in May 2014.

Interview Details

I applied online, a few days later I got a call and we set up a phone interview for the day after that. They asked a few situational questions and then said they'd call me in about two days if I got the second interview. They called me 3 hours later that day and we set an interview up for a week after that. When I got there I had to fill out some paperwork that asked some questions but you usually have to do it on the computer. Then I had to watch a video about the position I applied for. Then I was taken back for the interview and she asked a few questions (situational). I thought I did well and she always answered back with a positive response like "excellent". I called the next morning to see when I'd get a call to see whether I got the third interview or not and the lady that answered the phone said "Elizabeth is the one who interviewed you, she must have put your application in the denied folder because I haven't gotten anything to call you" I asked her if they planned on even calling me to tell me I didn't get it and she said they typically don't do that. I don't know what was up with that lady but until I talked to her I thought everything went good. Mustve been my experience. They really want you to be all about the guests. Which I was. But they probably don't want to hire inexperienced people.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. 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 Questions
    • 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. 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.

    I applied online. 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 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.

    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.

    I applied through college or university. 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 Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you did not agree with your superior and how/if you handled it.   Answer Question
