Executive Team Leader Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target in May 2014.

Interview Details

I was contacted by a recruiter through email. I would definitely advise anyone to get a recruiters email (go on to linkedin to find a recruiter) , if you are serious about working for this company. Contacting a recruiter seems to be the best way to actually getting an interview. Once I was contacted, we set up an interview time. So the first interview was over the phone. If you prepare, you will be fine. Make sure you also prepare yourself for the easy questions like "Tell me about yourself and Why do you want to work for Target". On top of those questions, the interviewer asked about 5 questions dealing with a specific event (i.e. Tell me about a time....). After the first interview, I was contacted that same day to schedule an in person interview with 3 different managers (district manager, store manager, and human resource business partner). My second interview was scheduled within a couple of days. It was the same style as the first interview. They may ask you the same questions. Don't be afraid to repeat your same answer. After the interview, I was told that if they wanted to pursue to the next step I would be contacted. Sure enough I was contacted a few days later to schedule my final interview with the big boss (market leader). My third interview was conducted over the phone and once again its the same style. I was contacted the next day and offered the position. I told God when he blessed me with this position that I would try to help people get to where I'm going. So my advice would be to prepare as much as possible with the interview questions that is provided on this website, research on Target, ask yourself what are your strengths/weaknesses, who are you as an individual (they really want to get to know who you are), relax, pray, and be yourself. A lot of people may say they are going to work you, well all jobs will work you but target will compensate you very well. Good luck and I hope this post helps you. It is an intense interview process but its quick. Process took a little over a week........ The interviewers are really really nice. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something.

    Was promoted internally to Executive Team Leader. Interview consisted mainly of behavioral and situational scenarios. They wanted to know your thought process and wanted to see that you prepared yourself well. Come with different situations to discuss and link them to how they would be relevant at Target. Also, come with questions to ask as well.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Very structured and organized interview process where I interviewed with 8 different people. The process takes about 2-3 weeks. They have a ton of great people on their team which is why the interview process is very strict because they make sure they get the best candidates for the specific position. I believe they are picky but for a GREAT purpose because you are the face of the store and they want their executives to bring the Target image to the table.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Target in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for an ETL position. I was contacted via email 3-4 weeks later asking If I was available for a phone interview. Expect your initial interview to be with a recruiter, followed by interviews with a Store Team Leader (Store Manager), a District Team Leader and a Sr. Market Leader in Human Resources. It's a very thorough interview process. My best advice is to just be yourself, re-familiarize yourself with your resume and past career challenges, and have fun with it. Target wants outgoing personalities that will be able to relate well with co-workers and customers. Also, be prepared to answer similar questions to the ones I posted. Good Luck!

    The process was very easy and laid back. It was nice to have interviews that were more laid back. I felt some aspects such as, location and information regarding the job, could have been more clear. Other than that the process was smooth.

    Interview Details

    Interview was somewhat difficult. It was all behavioral questions. Study up on the STAR technique. It was definitely an interview that focused on questions from corporate rather than getting to know you, which can be a good or bad thing depending on the person. Overall it was a fair interview.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter for the company reached out to me. I've completed a phone interview and I have been scheduled two follow up interviews.
    Some of the key things to remember when answering these behavioral questions:
    Include stats about yourself: numbers, accomplishments.
    Make sure to emphasize the outcome of each situation.
    Always talk about yourself use "I", it's great to know you work well with a team, but this interview is all about how "you" handled this situations.
