Executive Team Leader - Logistics Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Target in December 2014.

Interview Details

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

    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.

    First and second interview are behavioral based interview questions. It is really focused on showing leadership and how you handled situations where there was conflict, etc. Use the STAR method to answer all of the questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    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+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.
