    Interview

    I applied online and received a call the next day to set up an interview. The interview was set for a few days later. I read up on all of the interviewing tips on glassdoor and they helped A LOT. I was asked about my background and a few situation questions. You are expected to answer the situational questions in a specific format and that is STATE THE PROBLEM, STATE THE STEPS YOU TOOK TO OVERCOME THE PROBLEM, STATE THE OUTCOME. If you follow this, you will do well. The woman who interviewed me was really laid back and made me feel comfortable and confident. We went back to a small office where she interviewed me. The interview itself was only about 15 minutes but she told me right at the end that she would like me to come back for a second interview to meet with her boss. At the second interview, I felt much more comfortable. The HR ETL just asked me a few personal questions and did a bit of a follow up on the questions from my first interview. It was really easy.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretend you are out of a specific product a customer is looking for. What would you do?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time where you dealt with an angry customer.   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time where you were part of a team, what your role was, and how you succeeded.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Target (New Orleans, LA) in March 2007.

    Interview

    Had the first interview - seemed to go well. The HR Recruiter told my recruiter that they were getting the req approved and that they wanted me and would be in touch for a second interview. Second interview came and I felt it went well - just like before. On the way up to the interviewer, the HR Recruiter told me it was just a formality, that the offer should come the following week and that the start date would be around 1/5/09. This information was unsolicited. The interviewer was not feeling well but continued on the interview. He was the COO of the company. He was out all week last week - yesterday we found out that the position was now under a different HR Recruiter and that there was no word yet on the position. This info came directly to my recruiter. I followed up with a call to the hiring manager, who was the one that really wanted me. I just stated that I was very interested in the position, and wanted to see if she could provide any insight on where the hiring process was. This morning my recruiter got word from HR that they were going to go in a different direction. No explanation or feedback on the second interviews. We all were shocked and floored, as it had gone so well. The manager of the recruiter who I am working with is going to try to talk with the hiring company to get some feedback.
