    Group Leader - DC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I had a 15 minute interview with a member of human resources. The questions weren't all that difficult when you know what they are asking. Why target? Tell me about yourself? What was an accomplishment that you had at your last job? From the time I applied, had the interview, and got rejected the process took about a month. The interview went well. Unfortunately, they just decided to go another route. I applied again. I am confident I can do this job with one hand tied behind my back.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    For those preparing for the phone interview, it is really simple. Expect "tell me a little about yourself", 3 behavioral questions, followed by a time for you to ask your own questions. The recruiter was extremely nice and will give you advice on how you sounded over the phone. Be prepared for follow up questions after you answer the original behavioral question.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Met the recruiters at a college career fair, they were both very easy to talk to and nice. I had an interview on campus. Pretty basic interview, they asked you to tell them a little about yourself and then three behavior based questions (tell me about a time....). They made you feel very comfortable during the whole process. Really seems like a fun and good company to work for.

    Interview Questions
    • Not super difficult but they asked to tell them about a time you disagreed with a colleague/classmate and how you handled the situation. Use the STAR method to answer all questions.   Answer Question

    Operational Group Leader Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview. Very friendly staff, made the process enjoyable. Allowed me to give my pitch in the beginning, then asked me a series of behavioral questions. The best way to prepare for this is to have answers to 5-10 different behavioral questions, and fit and size them as needed during the interview.

    Group Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Galesburg, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Galesburg, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process took about one week. Applied through recruiter, was contacted via email next day after submitting application and resume. Was asked to take online assessment and would then be contacted to set up a time for a phone interview. Completed assessment and then set up phone interview. Phone interview lasted about 30 mins, a few behavioral questions and the normal "Why Target" and "Tell me a little bit about your background" etc. I felt that the interview went well. Was notified 3 days later that they were pursuing other candidates. I think my supervisory background with another company scared them, I feel that they'd rather groom younger candidates their way rather than bring in someone with experience.

    Group Leader- Distribution Center Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tifton, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tifton, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    applied online, got an email to set up a phone interview. A HR rep called at the time I had set up for the interview. She started by talking about herself... a lot. Then she asked me about my college experiences which was odd because I graduated from college 2 years ago. Other than that it was questions using the STAR system which she quickly explained (not in detail) and simple questions. The interview was done within 10 mins. I asked the interviewer a few simple questions having to do with the questions she asked me. ex: She asked if I would consider a position in a different geographic location. I asked her if their were any opening in different geographic locations. To which she replied." well no that's just something I have to ask, I'm just looking for candidates for the Tifton location." After I asked a few more questions that she didnt really have answers for she told me she sent me an email for an assessment I needed to complete and that I would hear about the position within a week. I took the assessment and 4 days later I get an email saying I am no longer being considered.

    Interview Questions
    • asked about my on campus experiences. I guess this was just to create a conversational tone to the interview but it was weird because I've been out of college for 2 years and had more recent experience that would have been better to speak about in the interview but when I tried to change the subject to my work experience, she seemed dissatisfied with my answers.   Answer Question
