    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I spoke with a recruiter at a career fair and expressed my interest. He told me to apply online and email him when I did. Shortly after, I was contacted for an interview and shortly after that I was contacted for another interview with the District Manager and HR Manager. The first interview consisted of 5 behavioral based questions- When have you had to provide constructive criticism, name a time where you lead a project, name a time where you were required to actively listen to someone, etc. I was also asked why Target- so please do your research! Know where the company is, where they started, how far they have come, what bad/good things have happened, what they are doing in the community etc.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very long. I went through about 5 interviews and it took almost 6 weeks from start to finish. The interviews started with STLs, then the DTL, and finally the Group Leader. Reviewing questions from this website helped a lot; I don't think I was asked a question I had not prepped for.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    To get past the first screening you have to pass a 1hr online test. The first part were a series of scenarios you might encounter as a manager. You had about six answers you could choose from, though some answers only differed by a few words. The next part was a logical portion i.e (It took John 30 mins to get to work, Sam came after john, Jill however got to work first, Who is Zack mom?) So you had 20 minutes to answer 18 of those. Make sure at least guess on all of them because you will get deducted points for not answering a question. Depending on how well you did this, you will get a phone call.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I scheduled first interview at the career fair for my university. The interview was over the phone with a recruiter. She asked situational based questions like "tell me about a time you made a big mistake and how you handled it" or "tell me about a time that you used leverage to get someone to do something you wanted them to do". I was called about a second interview about a week later. The second interview was back to back with the third - Human Resource Manager and District Manager.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Went through collegiate recruiting process. STL interview followed by Recruiter interview, followed by a store visit and shadow, followed by a drug test, followed by an interview with the DTL. The interview I had with the DTL had to be the most unprofessional interview I have ever had. I was cut off in my interview because they had to go and wasn't able to fully finish it. Also, they picked up the phone yawning and didn't seem to care at all about any of my answers.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a campus recruiter and then went through a series of phone interviews and in store interviews. The questions were mostly the same for all interviews just worded a bit differently. Try and give different examples to show yourself as a comprehensive person.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a campus recruiter and referred to a local South Florida recruiter.
    Initial phone screen to check qualifications
    Formal phone interview with behavioral and situational STAR format questions
    In-person interview with store team leader and then district team leader
    Overall interview questions are not extremely difficult, but sometimes tough to come up with a really good back story. STAR format is all about execution and results.
