Distribution Operations Intern Interview

Distribution Operations Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Target in September 2012.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – 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

Distribution Operations Intern

Interviewed at Target

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – 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

Distribution Operations Intern
Woodland, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – 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

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. As an intern, wages are set to be equal among all interns.

Distribution Operations Intern Interview

Distribution Operations Intern
Stuarts Draft, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Target in October 2012.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a coworker and how you dealt with it.   Answer Question
