Distribution Operations Intern InterviewAccepted Offer
I met with a campus recruiter and was contacted a week later about the position. I was contacted by email, and an initial interview was set-up. The initial interview was about 20 minutes long and consisted of four questions. The questions were situational, I was asked what I did in a certain situation, and the outcome of the situation.
- Most of the question weren't too unexpected, the most difficult question that was asked was "what is my weakness," because it was followed with "what am I doing to improve this weakness," which I was not prepared for. Answer Question

They first emailed me saying that they would be interested in speaking with me through phone. During the phone interview, they asked me basic behavioral questions and why I wanted to work in the Distribution Operations field.

One phone interview that was like a screening process and then two in person interviews about half an hour each with four managers. All behavior questions.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Woodland, CA).
Great experience. This is a behavioral based interview, like so many companies use these days. The recruiter helped me ace it! The recruiter also gave me information about the position, gave me hints and ideas to consider when interviewing, and genuinely cared about whether or not I received the position in the end. I still have a relationship with the recruiter even though the internship experience is over.
- Nothing was unexpected. A simple google search for "behavior interview questions" will give you a list of things you can expect to be asked during the interview. Answer Question
I did not negotiate. As an intern, wages are set to be equal among all interns.

I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Target (Stuarts Draft, VA) in October 2012.
They first picked me up at the Virginia Tech career fair. I spoke with a really nice recruiter, and she took my resume and said they may call me for an interview. About a week later I got called to have an interview on campus. I had the interview and they asked me about 5 behavior based questions (ex: tell me about a time you were leading a group and an unforeseen hurdle came up). After that I heard from them about a week later asking me to take a personality test. The test consisted of about 75 personality questions (Ex: my friends come to me for advice. Strongly disagree, strongly agree, etc.). The second part of the test was rather hard - it consisted of a bunch of logic questions involving number sequences, scheduling problems, etc. 2 days after taking that test I received an email asking me to come to the distribution center in Stuarts Draft, VA for a tour of the facility and 2 more interviews. There they gave us papers to take a drug test and we had our interviews following the tours. The interviews were the same thing as before: all behavioral based/situation questions. BE PREPARED FOR THIS. A week later I received an email saying they were pursuing other candidates and that it is against their policy to provide feedback.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Target in September 2012.
Met with Target at a career fair. Spoke with a couple recruiters for about 20 minutes. The next day I received an e-mail invitation for an on-campus interview.I interviewed on campus. Then was called a few months later for a second interview. Every person I met from Target was friendly and inviting. I was nervous prior to the interviews but once the interview started it felt very natural like a conversation.
- All the questions are behavioral. Therefore, they were all pretty challenging. Most, if not all, the questions asked to describe a situation, the task involved, the action I took and the results obtained. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (DeKalb, IL) in March 2011.
Started out with internship fair at college. Progressed to 2 on 1 interview. All behavioral questions. The interview was held at the college. Received an email informing me that I had to take an online test. It tested math questions as well as personality questions. Lots of managerial questions. There were no behavioral questions or fill in the blanks/short essay answers. Then a group interview at the Distribution center. Met with 8 team leaders. Interviewed with 6 of them in groups of two interviewers. Each group asked 3-5 behavioral questions. Took 4 hours. Overall they are looking for upbeat people that are team oriented. Good luck!
