    Flow Team Member Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Target (Stow, OH) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was quick. If you're looking for a job around August or the holiday season they are always desperate for help. The first interview is usually with the person that is going to be your direct supervisor. Dress business attire. This is your time to shine. If they call you back for a second interview then you most likely have the job. Many of the questions are of the format, "Tell me a time when..." They want to hear about the process that you took to accomplish something not just the end result.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question that I was asked was, "Tell me about a time where you did something wrong at work and how you corrected for it."   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't any negotiation for pay. It was simply do you want the job yes or no?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Target (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    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.

    Group Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Target (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Target (Cleveland, OH) in March 2013.

    Interview

    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.
