    Merchandise Flow Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for seasonal, and they contacted me three days later to come in for an interview. The day of the interview you have to come in and go on one of their computers before the interview happens and answer a bunch of questions -- a lot of math related questions about logistics. I already knew from someone else that at the interview they have two people talk to you at different times, which happened for me as well. I first spoke with the person in charge of the flow team, then I spoke with the HR person. It was weird because they literally asked me the same exact questions. So it was kind of pointless in that aspect. They do a lot of "tell me a time when" scenarios, and ask about your strengths, weaknesses, why you want to work in that position, why you want to work with target in general. They hired me on the spot and told me orientation was the next week. They were very nice.

    Interview Questions
    • They wanted to know like 4 strengths and weaknesses -- I usually only have about 2-3 in my head, so I had to scramble to say two more!   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation available for this unfortunately. Although I have a Bachelor's Degree I am making the same as say, a 16 year old in high school, which is kind of a downer. It's $10.50/hr until 6am then it goes to $9.50/hr

    Merchandise Flow Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mount Pleasant, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Online application. Initial interview 3 days later. 3 brief interviews with 3 different people. Watched video about working for Target. Was asked questions about the video. Was then given conditional offer of employment after 3rd interview. All in all it took about 1 hour.

    Asked lots of questions where need to give specific examples of working in team, overcoming problems and finding solutions, what are my strengths and weaknesses according to previous employers or teachers, why want to work for Target, if this this or that scenario happened while working at Target what would I do? etc. Each interviewer asked pretty much the same questions.

    Interview Questions
    • If you are working the register and someone is buying an item that rings up as $19.99 but guest says it was listed as $17.99 what would you do? After answering the question I was asked what the outcome would be.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    Start time would be 4am and that is not something I wanted to do. Advertisment had said early start time but had not been specific. Although there is a $1 per hour difference in salary for hours worked before 8am, it wasn't enough to warrant starting at that time.

    Flow Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    First I was called to come in for an in person interview. Then an hour before my interview they called and told me it was going to take place over the phone. After I passed the phone interview I was scheduled for an in person interview. Had to wait around in the back for a while because they were doing lots of interviews - people don't stay in this job for very long and I understand why.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions - all the standard questions - Why do you want to work at Target? Tell me about an experience when...? ... All generic questions read off of a stander sheet.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No room for negotiation. But they do give you an opportunity to change your availability before you accept - after that you can't change your availability for 3 months.

    Flow Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winona, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winona, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by telephone a few days after submitting my application. I ended up going in for two interviews, and was given paperwork for a drug test at the end of the second interview. After my drug test came back negative, they called me and set up my orientation.

    Interview Questions
    • They had me interview one-on-one with three different people; it was all pretty straight-forward. The most difficult question was probably "what is your biggest weakness?" This was my first job interview, so I didn't really know what to expect and that one caught me off-guard.   Answer Question

    Flow Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    A friend of mine whom works at Target told me about their job as a Logistics/Flow Team Member, and urged me to apply. On their website they specifically ask which type of job YOU would like to work (which is quite unique, and won me over off the bat; personal preference like that is never available on an application). Being that I am more of the introverted type, I chose two things; Flow Team Member, and the job where you arrange merchandise, set up displays, etc. (forgot what its called), as those job roles deal less with people. The job that ended up being available at my Target was a seasonal position for early morning Flow Team. I applied on a Sunday afternoon online, and HR called me Wednesday for an interview, which we scheduled the next day. She also went over my availability, what the job would entail, and where I needed to go for my interview.

    To my interview I wore a simple black dress shirt with a black sweater over it, khaki pants, and black slip on canvas shoes. Kept my makeup professional, and my hair was straight, neat, and styled appropriately. My interview was scheduled at 12PM, and I showed up 10 minutes early, notified Guest Services of my arrival, gave my name, and I was guided to a computer to finish another part of my application.

    The extra part of my application asked simple math questions related to truck shipments, percentages, and other very easy stuff. Once I finished, I was asked to wait until the ETL got there. The ETL arrived about 10 minutes later, took me to the STL's office, and interviewed me, asking basic questions; "tell me about yourself" "what are your greatest strengths/weaknesses", "do you have any previous retail experience", "why should we hire you", etc. The interview wasn't too taxing, only took maybe 10 minutes.

    I was then interviewed by the other HR, who asked situational and behavioral questions; "tell me about a time you and a group dealt with a problem", "how do you handle several problems at once", things of that nature. We then went over my availability once more, she and told me that instead of hiring me for seasonal, that she had decided to hire me on as a regular employee, as I was a "good fit". Needless to say, I was extremely grateful and couldn't thank her enough, given that I had no prior retail experience. She gave me paperwork with my orientation time, and a sheet to bring to a clinic for a drug test, which I took the same day.

    Both of the ladies who interviewed me were extremely nice, professional, and well versed on what Target wants in an employee.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were too hard, and it doesn't seem too difficult to obtain a job as a Target employee as long as you answer questions immediately, give well thought out and concise answers, and convey that you know what you're talking about. A lot of the questions for the Flow Team position were aimed at how you operate in team/group situations, which aren't hard to answer.   Answer Question

    Flow Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterbury, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterbury, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was offer a seasonal position. Target loves Availability !! Be open! Specially Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, also holidays. Not sure how long it took, my guess is 2 or 3 weeks it took to receive a response. First was a phone interview very unexpected, but it went well. I was schedule 2 days later for a store interview. I went a took a questionnaire on the computer by the guest service. Questions involving math. I will say adding and multiplying, for example : if XYZ did 20 retooled on Tuesday how much more did Lily did on Friday. Also questions involving team action, example: if a coworker is getting loud with you what will you do. After I answer the questions I waited for a Team Leader to take me to the back office. Where I watched about a 4 minute video about what it takes to be a Target Team Member (pay attention they will ask you what you learned about it) afterwards I went through two members (sorry don't know their title) very cool laid back ladies. First person ask me questions about behavioral situations for example when did you face a difficult task with your team and how you solved it and what your learn about it. Second person ask questions about how you provided the best guest service. Also think about your weaknesses and strengths. A weakness could be "confidence, because my thoughts are my worst enemy if I don't get a thank you, you been helpful. I haven't provided the best of my service" a strength could be"neatness I have to make sure every aisle is well organized and ready for the customers". Learn ABOUT the company they will ask you why target, say for example.you been involved in community service and I notice target has also been involve by providing 5% yearly no of their income to the community no matter what the circumstances and I will like to be part of that involvement. I was offer the job right there after 40 minutes. Lastly I spoke with the last person that went over the paper work I'm guessing is the Team leader of the Backroom Flow (Logistics). Remember open availability. Be willing to work the maximum amount of hours.

    • Most difficult question, was a time where you had to meet a deadline with your team.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    Got called by phone for a phone I terview on Wednesday. It was pretty straightforward with simple questions. After it was over they asked me to come in Friday for an in store interview. Dress business casual. First I had to watch a cheesy video on the position I applied for (pay attention they -will- ask you what the most important thing about the video was) and then back into the office for a one on one interview to answer a few questions. All in all an easy process if you answer efficiently

    I applied online – interviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted application and got called around two weeks later saying that they wanted to interview me for flow team member I went through two interviews both with specific questions on flow team situations. At the end of my second interview they asked if I was interested in any other position besides flow team member and I said I would love to be a cashier. Later an hr member came In and said I was give a conditional job offer as a cashier so I was happy they took my choice into consideration. The conditional job offer basically meant I got the job as long as the drug test came back positive. They said this would take two weeks but in three days I was called for orientation.
