ETL Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Kansas City, KS

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in October 2013.

Interview Details – I was emailed about next day interviews at my campus. The first interview was simply answering PAR (Problem, Action, Result) based questions about 6 questions. After I passed the first interview I was emailed a questionnaire that has many situations and asks you what you would do. It takes about 2 hrs. The second interview lasted 30 mins and had 6-7 questions like the first. Third interview was the same as the second. Last interview was a phone interview with the area coordinator big shot that lasted 30 mins long, with 5-6 questions. The last interview they ask about your GPA. I was emailed two days later with a generic email saying I did not get the job.

Interview Question – When was a time that you made a mistake and how did you go about fixing it?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very little room to negotiate, but doesn't hurt to try.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – Over the phone screening. Asked about job experiences, strengths, weakness, etc. The typical things that you get asked during a preliminary screening. The most difficult question is finding your faults and making them not sound horrible.Simply didnt have the experience for the job or to properly answer the recruiter's questions. Make sure you are properly prepared and truly believe that you are right for the job.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – Total of 3 interviews, although I've heard that it could be out of 4. First one was phone interview with HR asking basic questions like "why do you want to work at Target", "Tell me about a time when displayed leadership skills" etc. Second interview was with an STL at a Target location asking the same basic questions, but with the addition of 5 behavioral questions like the ones on this site. Third was with HR. Waiting for their response.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when somebody in your group was not pulling their own weight.   Answer Question
