    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with a recruiter at a career fair and expressed my interest. He told me to apply online and email him when I did. Shortly after, I was contacted for an interview and shortly after that I was contacted for another interview with the District Manager and HR Manager. The first interview consisted of 5 behavioral based questions- When have you had to provide constructive criticism, name a time where you lead a project, name a time where you were required to actively listen to someone, etc. I was also asked why Target- so please do your research! Know where the company is, where they started, how far they have come, what bad/good things have happened, what they are doing in the community etc.

    Interview Details

    Scripted interview where they ask you a lot of "tell me about a time" questions. They rate your responses on a 1-5 scale. 1 being a bad response and 5 being a great response. Afterwards they tally your points to consider whether you should go on to the second interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions where not too difficult, you just have to remember to answer the question in how everything affects the "big picture." Like how did it affect sales, or how did your response to something affected the rest of the team.   Answer Question

    Executive Team Leader - GE/Softlines Interview

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very long. I went through about 5 interviews and it took almost 6 weeks from start to finish. The interviews started with STLs, then the DTL, and finally the Group Leader. Reviewing questions from this website helped a lot; I don't think I was asked a question I had not prepped for.

    Very easy interview process, first and second interview with team leaders and ETLs. Most people who work at Target are very amiable and make sure you know what you're doing in the position.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I went in to the store applied, and interviewed on the same day. Got a call a couple days later that they wanted to hire me. Came back in to sign some papers and then had to go do a drug test.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked lots of situational questions like "Name a time you helped somebody even though they didn't ask for help" or "Tell me about a time you had to work with a team." Fairly simple questions but you have to come up with scenarios quick.   Answer Question

    Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for Target about two months ago and got the job. It was pretty straight-forward: Glassdoor helped me a lot to prepare me for all the questions. Basically just practice what you're going to say with all the questions you find on here and you'll be set! Also, be prepared for a longer interview process. You first apply to the job, get a phone interview (mine wasn't really an interview, just a "why did you apply to Target?" and then set up the actual interview), the actual interview and then the second interview where they will tell you if you got the job or not. Finally, don't be afraid to call them to check in on the hiring process. They forgot to schedule me for my second interview so I had to call and remind them: and now I have the job!

    Interview Questions
    • 1. What is the most difficult obstacle you had to overcome with a group?
      2. Tell me an instance where you made sure to give great customer service?
      3. What do you do if a customer argues that an item is 17.99 when it rings up as 19.99?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone call asking basic questions, then went to the district office for my official interview which consisted of two people asking you 3 situationally based questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were not difficult. The only hard part was trying to think of the situation on the spot. It is hard to come prepared with a situation because you do not know what the situation is going to be.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Paid $17.50 which was a great summer internship wage
