    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Very structured and organized interview process where I interviewed with 8 different people. The process takes about 2-3 weeks. They have a ton of great people on their team which is why the interview process is very strict because they make sure they get the best candidates for the specific position. I believe they are picky but for a GREAT purpose because you are the face of the store and they want their executives to bring the Target image to the table.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Target in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    They take HR very seriously at Target. All day, 8 interviews. About half HR, half potential business colleagues. They have decided to get very up-to-date with their business strategy and the new CEO has people very energized. Even if they ding me I should probably buy the stock.

    Interview Questions
    • They threw out the book on behavioral questions. We even joked about it. They just spent time getting to know me and my experience. Very good energy at the HQ. People seemed busy and happy. Remarkably pleasant people and a positive experience.   Answer Question

    Executive Team Leader - Logistics Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Target in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I'm currently separating from the United States Army and I applied online back in August 2014 for the executive team leader in training position in Albany, NY. I was finally contacted in November 2014 by a Human Resources Recruiter and conducted a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 40 minutes. The Human Resource Recruiter asked me questions about my military back ground and then provided a brief description of the leadership structure at Target and then asked me how my Military History fit into those leadership roles.

    I explained that my military experience was similar to both the Executive Team Leader position and Store Team Leader. The recruiter then asked me four behavioral based questions for the store team leader position. All the questions can be found on the reviews and I had rehearsed pretty thoroughly before the interview. The focus of the behavioral based questions is to determine if you have the ability to work in a team, lead a team and resolve conflict. You need to be able cite good examples.

    Once the phone interview was complete, g the HR stated that I would be an excellent fit for the Executive Team Leader position, but she was going to recommend to the District Manager that I be considered for the Store Team Leadership position. I was contacted 20 minutes later to schedule a second interview in person with the store team leader at a Target Store.

    I met with the Store Team Leader five days after my phone interview and she had a packet on me , with three behavioral questions. I had rehearsed all the questions before hand and blew through that interview in about 30 minutes. The first question she asked was where I see myself in 5-7 years, a time I worked on a project that produce a excellent response from a customer and when I had to build a relationship under difficult circumstances. She then said I did really well and she was recommending me to go through and meet with the district manager. I'm to be scheduled soon and will provide an upddate when that occurs.

    Interview Questions
    • Why Target and where do you see yourself in 5-7 years. The questions weren't difficult, but the Store Team Leader stated those questions have historically given candidates a hard time.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Was called in for two interviews; one with an HR representative and one with the Pharmacy Manager. Both presented a series of scenarios and asked what I would do in the situations. Scenarios ran the gamut from what you would do if you had an issue with a co-worker to how you would handle a customer who was livid over not receiving a prescription. Overall, very easy process as long as you have any idea about what good customer service is.

    The process was very easy and laid back. It was nice to have interviews that were more laid back. I felt some aspects such as, location and information regarding the job, could have been more clear. Other than that the process was smooth.

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Very quick to reply after sending in the application. The application itself is very detailed and long, but since it is all online, it was easy to take a few minutes to finish it or go back and finish if you did not have time to do it all at once. The first interview was done over the phone, also very quick and straightforward. The second interview is done in person.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Interview was somewhat difficult. It was all behavioral questions. Study up on the STAR technique. It was definitely an interview that focused on questions from corporate rather than getting to know you, which can be a good or bad thing depending on the person. Overall it was a fair interview.
