Difficult Interview

Pharmacist Interview

Pharmacist
Cleveland, OH

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in March 2013.

Interview Details – Phone interview with HR. Asked several specific questions right away. I honestly was not prepared since this was the first step into the interview process. I suggest anyone looking into Target for a pharmacist position to be extremely prepared. Target pharmacy is one of the most difficult companies to obtain a position in retail pharmacy.

Interview Question – Please tell me a time when you had to deal with a controversy and what did you do about it?   Answer Question

Executive Team Leader Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Target in December 2012.

Interview Details – I interviewed through an on-campus interview and thought it went well but not the greatest. I really clicked with one interviewer but the other was cold. I then was interviewed two more times. Both were very interested in me and told me I would be starting within two weeks and it was mine. I then had to interview with a District Leader who asked me the same questions but could not answer any of my questions as he was new. I was then offered a job for less than half the pay of the Executive Team Leader. This was a total slap in the face and waste of time. I'm not sure why the district leader did not like me. He said I wasn't able to answer the questions to his level. I was really rubbed the wrong way, not because I didn't get the job but because I was told it was mine and then turned down for not answering how he thought I should. I found it contradictory as I asked him three job specific questions and he couldn't answer any.

Interview Question – None, I was prepared for all the questions and did my homework.   View Answer

Executive Team Leader Interview

Executive Team Leader
Cleveland, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – I found out about this position at my college Career Fair. The people at the booth were friendly and I was offered an interview after talking with them after about 5 minutes at my college campus the next week. The interview was simple and they tell you how they want you to answer questions; use the STAR method. Questions like tell me about a time you had to lead a team, or a time you worked with someone who was difficult i.e. behavior questions. After that I was offered a second interview at the district office. Besides the fact that the interview was almost an hour late it was pleasant and they asked more of the same questions. There is one guy asking you questions and the other writing things down.

Overall basic pleasant interview experience.

Interview Question – Relate a time when you motivated someone to do better and accomplish something.   Answer Question

Group Leader Interview

Group Leader
Columbus, OH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – Lengthy Interview. Be prepared to spend the whole day. Scenario based questions. Tell me about a time.... Seemed like they weren't interested in someone who could think outside the box, but rather just do the job as described. Will need to be a motivated team player. Received a response that was not selected within less than a day. Disappointing because it seemed like a positive interview.

Interview Question – Nothing was super difficult or unexpected.   View Answer

Target Back Room Team Member Interview

Anonymous Employee
Huber Heights, OH

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Target in September 2012.

Interview Details – I was called the day after I submitted my online application and resume. I went in for an interview, completed some computer psychological tests, interviewed with the GSTL and ETL back to back, answering some of the same questions. Both had "interview booklets" they were writing in while I was speaking. After the interview with the ETL a young HR rep came into the room with a handful of papers and very mater-of-factly informed me that I was being offered a position as a team member, front end, at $7.75/hour and gave me the information about when and where to obtain my mandatory drug test. I left feeling very confused, not certain about what job I had been offered exactly (we had discussed more than one) and when and where I would be training and working.

Interview Question – Why Target? Not a hard one for me to answer, just unexpected.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was none. I was offered $7.75/hour, part-time. My first pay check indicated that I was making $8/hour. Never questioned it. After my 90-day-probation my rate went to $8.25/hr. almost automatically. Again I never questioned it and no one offered any explaination.
