Sales Floor Team Member Interview

Sales Floor Team Member
San Angelo, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in June 2014.

Interview Details – I recieved a call a few days after applying to set up a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 20 minutes and was about 7 questions, which were all very standard and situational questions. I ended up stuttering a bit a few times out of nervousness, but was scheduled for an in-store interview. When I got there, I first had to fill out a 50-question survey on a computer, which included some math problems and personality profiling. After, I was brought upstairs and watched about 15 minutes worth if video, then the interview began. I was asked basically the same questions as the phone interview, and at the end, the interviewer said she would discuss with the phone interviewer about my answers. I never received a call back, disappointingly, and I suspect its because of my occasional stuttering and/or having less experience than others. (4 months of retail)

Interview Question – What would you do if a customer says the price of an item is $15, but it rung up as $20?   Answer Question

Interview Details – They came to my campus and I gave them my resume at a career fair. The recruiters were very nice and personable. The interview was a week later in person and and on my campus.

LOGISTICS FLOW TEAM MEMBER Interview

LOGISTICS FLOW TEAM MEMBER

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Target in April 2010.

Interview Details – I had two interviews for a part time, over night position. The questions are focused on real life scenarios. Often times I wondered the relevance and how it pertains to the position I was actually interviewing for. When I was hired my training was moved around amongst various people. You basiecally have 2 weeks of training and then your off on your own. There is a 90 waiting period before you can take time off or accrue vacation.

Interview Question – There were often quesitons about how you helped a customer, but the position I applied to was overnight where I would not engage with any customers. I guess they were gauging if I was a friendly/helpful person.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. I needed a job at the time as I was in a transitional phase.

Multiple Departments Interview

Multiple Departments

I interviewed at Target in August 2011.

Interview Details – You fill out an application at an kiosk. The test that they give you are very drawn out and boring. It would be nice if they made them a bit more to the point. Then you go in and two people interview you in a windowless closet of a room. It's very quick.

Interview Question – None. The questions were very simple   Answer Question
