Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Minneapolis, MN

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Target in April 2010.

Interview Details – Target uses a pretty formal interview process. They started with a phone screening with HR where they asked me to walk through my work history and my strengths and weaknesses (or as Target calls them - opportunities). When I came back in for the in person interviews I met with three different managers including the hiring manager. All three of the people asked me five situational questions like, "Tell me about a time where you had to deal with conflict. What was the situation and what was the outcome?"

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about a time you had to work with someone you didn't really like. What did you do and what was the outcome?   Answer Question
  • Tell me about a time when you had to make a decision without all of the information. What did you do and what was the outcome?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I asked for more money and was told Target doesn't usually negotiate, but they wanted me to be happy with my offer so they gave me more money. My advice is: negotiate!

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

The process took 5 days - interviewed at Target in January 2011.

Interview Details – The hiring process is well organized. Target kept me up to date in a timely manner. Interview questions were all narrative based focusing on soft skills used in past negative situations, my reaction to those situations, and the outcome of the interaction. Questions were predetermined by HR, so none of the people I interviewed with had a chance to ask questions they had prepared. There was very little opportunity to talk about past project successes. There were five minutes allotted for me to ask each interviewee questions.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to deliver bad news to decision makers.   Answer Question
