    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Target (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Went through the referral hiring process. Had one get to know you interview and the second was behavioral based questions. Along with the second interview was a personality and quantitative assessment. You must pass the second interview and both assessments in order to get the last two interviews, which is an all day event at their Corporate headquarters. This consisted of a Business Analyst panel, networking with BA's and Buyers, two interviews with Buyers, and a tour. It takes up to three weeks to hear back.

    Interview

    fairly straight forward, SBO based questions. HR will do it in a three round interview style. the first round consists of general get to know your background style questions with a few SBO questions. a week later you will take a test and go through another round of mainly SBO questions. if you make it to the third round you will interview in person with 2 senior buyers and/or directors at HQ in Minneapolis. overall a pretty straightforward interview process. research the company, research SBO format, have 5-6 GREAT examples of things you experienced/did/lead and be able to apply them in multiple different ways. If you do that then you should be a great fit for an offer.

    Just one casual interview with behavioral questions. My interviewer was a nice lady that wanted to see what I knew about the company. Then she talked to me about the company and what she does and how she got there.

    Interview

    Very difficult. Situation - Behavior - Outcome questions, need to have examples prepared. Wear a suit and know about the company. I would also suggest doing mock interviews with mentors beforehand to practice.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate.

    It was a very long process. Applied on line, several weeks of waiting, HR phone screen, one on one interviews with 4 different people, people I interviewed with were very nice and questions were situation/behavioral, wondered how some of the questions even related to the position. Then several more weeks of waiting before being contacted regarding an offer.
