Executive Team Leader Interview

Executive Team Leader
Houston, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – The interview process consists of four interviews. It's a long process of several weeks and the questions at each interview are all behavioral question. I have a very positive experience, the recruiter gave me feedback to improve my interview skills by being concise, keep the answers to their questions for at most 2.5 minutes. Make sure you give them the situation, your behavior, and then the outcome.

Interview Question – Unexpected behavioral question: explain a time when your long-term goal changed something you did every day. I used a personal example and that was fine. It does not all have to be professional.   Answer Question

I applied online - interviewed at Target in May 2010.

Interview Details – Standard interview. Straightforward questioning, more about how you think you'd fit in with a team-environment and working shifts at various times. No second round interview, was offered the job on the spot. Follow up was necessary to get the interview in the first place.

Merchandise Flow Team Member Interview

Merchandise Flow Team Member
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in April 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online to 3 different positions. A few days later I received a call regarding one of those positions (flow team, overnight)—asking if I was still interested and what pay rate I would like, as well as confirming when I could work. My phone interview was scheduled for 11:30pm the next day, so I had about 36 hours to prepare. They called 15 minutes early, and the phone interview only lasted about 15 minutes as well. I had researched behavioral interview questions and was probably TOO prepared, but that's (more than) okay. They scheduled me to come in the following day at 11pm for my in-person interview with the ETL as well as watching a video and taking an assessment. This second interview was also brief and easy, but the assessment was more challenging for me because I've never worked retail. There were scenarios like what would you be most likely and least likely to do when you're helping one person and another person shows up, if you caught a co-worker stealing, etc. The second half of the assessment was all math specific to logistics, such as knowing how to read basic data tables and line graphs as well as how to work with percentages. Most of the stuff revolved around comparing three flow team members' productivity in a given week or comparing shipment size. Nothing tough if I'd had a scratch sheet of paper, but doing it all in my head really slowed me down. I then came in three days later to talk with the head of HR and an HR team member. They explained the position some more, asked if I wanted to accept it, told me to take the drug test within 24 hours, and told me training would happen two weeks from now. Took the drug test so now I wait.

Interview Question – Something along the lines of: Talk about a time that you were in a leadership position and what you could've done better.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. The HR manager told me starting salary was $8.50 and that employees working the night shift get paid an additional dollar an hour.

Interview Question – All the questions are, Tell me about a time... They want a very specific event with details including the situation, circumstance, and resolution. Target hires bubbly cheerleader types most often. They are also suckers for key words and business lingo; manage execution, I championed blah, spear head, on board, development, culture   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Target in April 2011.

Interview Details – Interviews took place on the same day. First with a team leader who asked fairly standard questions and then with the HR rep which was pretty much a formality.

Negotiation Details – Was offered $8 ($7.25 is state minimum) because I was going to electronics.
