    District Facilities Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frisco, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frisco, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Target in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I recieved a call from a Target recruiter in Feb. askingme standard questions regarding my current employment and to schedule a phone interview with an Executive Recruiter.

    The phone interview was basically a review of my resume and what I did at each job previously. Then I was asked a series of situational questions and was given the opportunities to ask questions regarding the position. At the end of the interview, the recrutier was very helpful in explaining the remainder ofthe process and coached me on things I could do better in the next round of interviews (told me to be more outgoing as I'm a little monotone on the phone). His critic was much appreciated.

    I interviewed about 2 weeks later with the Group Facilities Manager and 2 DTL, each having an opening for a DFM in their district. The first interview was with one DTL and the GFM at the same time. The DTL asked the questions and the GFM just wrote everything down. Same format as the phone interview. The DTL was very high energy, ra-ra type. The GFM was kinda quiet and exibited much less energy.

    This may have been the strangest interview I have ever been a part of. The DTL read every question directly from a page, I would give an answer with a situation, how I addressed it and the solution. Then the GFM would write it down. It was rinse and repeat. There was little conversation back and forth and the enitre vibe of the leadership felt very impersonal. The DTL's cell phone even went off during the interview.

    After that, I went next door and interviewed with another DTL and it was the same thing. Pretty impersonable, no real discussion regarding management sytles or the company. The whole thing had a realy Pavlog's dog tone to it. Very procedural.

    Anyways, I was told at the end I would receive word with in a week and did via email that they were going with another canidate.

    In the end, the position seemed more coordinating of contractors than facilities management. There were zero tecnical questions.in the interview.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interview was a standard "star-type" interview. The HR person had no idea what I was talking about due to the fact that it was out of here scope of work. The direct manager was efficient and just went through the motions because he already knew he wanted to hire me.

    Facilities Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Target in October 2007.

    Interview Details

    I was originally contacted by a Target recruiter who had seen my resume posted on a website. We did a telephone interview that took about 30 minutes and then there were numerous follow up phone calls. I then spoke to my potential boss for a few time over the phone then I flew out for the interview. I was contacted a few days later with a job offer. All questions were behavioral based with the exception of about four technical based questions.

    Facilities Management Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for this position (regardless of employee referrals everyone needs to fill out an online application to be considered/added to the system). Within 1-2 weeks I received an email from HR asking to set up an initial phone interview/screening. Call lasted about 30 min. Questions were behavioral based (tell me about a time when...) and I was also asked to run through my resume, discuss the responsibilities/skills, and then give an example of a challenge/acomplishment for each (it's important to prepare - make sure your experience stories relate to skills and qualities that they are looking for in the position for which you applied). So keep it relevant. Try to use examples that have a positive outcome - if you have not had an experience for a question asked say what you would do if you were in that situation or discuss a similar experience. Be concise, positive, and honest. The next step is a in person interview (which I am preparing for) and then hopefully an offer!
