    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Took about 3 days after submitting an application to get called in for an interview. Had to do another questionnaire at the store on one of the computers then went in for the interview. I had two interviews, the first was with a lead sales floor member and the second was with a hiring manager, they ask basic interview questions and it isn't a long interview. They told me I would hear back within the next 7 days so hoping it went as well as I feel it did.

    They are three interviews you have to go through before getting the job. First one is Behavioral interview by HR, second interview by the team leader where they ask you work scenarios and last interview is the General Manager. When you go through the third interview that means that the team leader and HR like you and you got the job.

    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Target in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a response fairly quick after I submitted my resume. I spent 28 years in the Air Force in leadership positions as a CMSgt (E-9), leading over 1,400 airmen, both in peacetime and wartime and I was told after the first interview that I didn't have enough leadership experience. I guess their idea of experience is subjective.

    Interview Questions
    • There were none, typical canned interview questions; "what was the most stressful situation you were in", how would you handle a situation if....", "tell us about yourself", etc   Answer Question

    It was a very short and easy hiring process - 2 weeks. I went through two rounds of interviews with mid level associates to the exec of the team i was applying to. They asked me very short and simple questions and then I had a brief and easy writing test.
