    Sales Floor/Softlines Team Member Interview

    Interview Details

    I got hired right before the holidays for a seasonal position. They needed a lot of help at this location so they interviewed a lot of people and the process went by fairly quickly. I applied online through the Target website and received a call within a week later. The person who called was someone from HR who gave a quick screening, asking questions about my availability and why I wanted to work at Target. We then scheduled an on-site interview within that week. I got interviewed by my team lead and then by her boss. I got hired on the spot. The whole process that day took about 1.5 hours since there were other interviews going on that day.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter via email, did an initial phone interview, was asked to complete a profile account and take assessment test. Then, I was scheduled an interview with a store manager. The process is quite lengthy, prepare well. All of the questions in here were very very useful. If you had leadership and retail experience you will do well.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Applied online the day the job was posted and received email from HR saying I have been selected for the next phase in the interview process. Had a brief phone interview where HR went over the position, asked why I want to work for Target, salary requirements etc. At the end of the this phone interview, she wanted to set up another phone interview the next day where behavioral questions would be asked. Again, after this phone interview she wanted me to come in for a face-to-face interview with the District Manager. The interview I felt went well and again behavioral questions were asked. Some questions were the same or very similar to the ones asked in the phone interview. Some questions asked in phone interview and/or face-to face interview: Tell me about a time you had to leverage a team to get a task done? Explain a time it was difficult to communicate with a team member? Think about a time you used effective communication? Tell me about a time you made a mistake and what did you do to fix the mistake? Practice behavioral/STAR type questions and a lot of the questions asked in the interview were on this website as well. I didn't end up getting the position, but their interview process definitely was a good learning experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    After applying for the position I received an email that said I was selected to speak with a Target representative. I scheduled a time for the call through their website which requires you to make an account before you apply. The phone call was with an HR rep and I was asked why I wanted to work for Target. After answering that question, the HR rep then informed me I was going to receive an email from someone that was going to help me schedule an in-person interview and that I also had to complete an online assessment before the interview. My interview was with 2 Store Team Leaders. When I arrived at the interview, I was told that the other STL could not make it and that I would interview with him via phone. The interview consisted of personal background and situation/behavioral based questions. Both STLs seemed easy-going and informative which made the interview simple.
