    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    After applying for the position I received an email that said I was selected to speak with a Target representative. I scheduled a time for the call through their website which requires you to make an account before you apply. The phone call was with an HR rep and I was asked why I wanted to work for Target. After answering that question, the HR rep then informed me I was going to receive an email from someone that was going to help me schedule an in-person interview and that I also had to complete an online assessment before the interview. My interview was with 2 Store Team Leaders. When I arrived at the interview, I was told that the other STL could not make it and that I would interview with him via phone. The interview consisted of personal background and situation/behavioral based questions. Both STLs seemed easy-going and informative which made the interview simple.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and within a few days was contacted via phone call. This was a typical screening call, nothing out of the ordinary. After the phone call, I was emailed and told that I was scheduled for an interview with a store leader. This happened twice, both from different stores than the one I had applied for. After both of these interviews, I was scheduled with the district team leader, and then with the regional team leader.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Target (West Albany, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I'm currently separating from the United States Army and I applied online back in August 2014 for the executive team leader in training position in Albany, NY. I was finally contacted in November 2014 by a Human Resources Recruiter and conducted a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 40 minutes. The Human Resource Recruiter asked me questions about my military back ground and then provided a brief description of the leadership structure at Target and then asked me how my Military History fit into those leadership roles.

    I explained that my military experience was similar to both the Executive Team Leader position and Store Team Leader. The recruiter then asked me four behavioral based questions for the store team leader position. All the questions can be found on the reviews and I had rehearsed pretty thoroughly before the interview. The focus of the behavioral based questions is to determine if you have the ability to work in a team, lead a team and resolve conflict. You need to be able cite good examples.

    Once the phone interview was complete, g the HR stated that I would be an excellent fit for the Executive Team Leader position, but she was going to recommend to the District Manager that I be considered for the Store Team Leadership position. I was contacted 20 minutes later to schedule a second interview in person with the store team leader at a Target Store.

    I met with the Store Team Leader five days after my phone interview and she had a packet on me , with three behavioral questions. I had rehearsed all the questions before hand and blew through that interview in about 30 minutes. The first question she asked was where I see myself in 5-7 years, a time I worked on a project that produce a excellent response from a customer and when I had to build a relationship under difficult circumstances. She then said I did really well and she was recommending me to go through and meet with the district manager. I'm to be scheduled soon and will provide an upddate when that occurs.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Target and where do you see yourself in 5-7 years. The questions weren't difficult, but the Store Team Leader stated those questions have historically given candidates a hard time.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Referred to a recruiter and was contacted within a week. Established an interview time with the recruiter. Interview process was explained as a couple of phone interviews before an on site interview phase. Interview performance was mediocre on my part - just didn't click with the interviewer. Highly scripted interview process which is indicative of a highly structured corporate environment - they are not seeking creative thinkers, but rather efficient doers for this entry level management position.
