Sales Floor Team Leader Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Target (Canton, MI) in July 2015.
Brief. Extremely brief. I applied online for the Sales Floor Team Leader position and got a call about 5 days later, on a Friday afternoon. They asked a few questions about my background + then asked me to come in for an interview the following Monday morning. So, needless to say, I excitedly prepared for the interview by reading up on others' interviews for the same position. Monday arrives, I head to the Guest Services desk as prompted to on the phone when asked to interview, and had to answer a few questions on their job application computer/kiosk. Then, a young associate lead me up to the employee breakroom to wait for my interview. It wasn't a very long wait, fortunately, before someone came to greet me + lead me to another room to interview me. She was pleasant enough, but the first thing she asked when we had taken our seats was "you're applying for a Sales Floor position...?". Feeling instantly wary, I added that I was interviewing for the Sales Floor Team Leader position. To which she quickly -- and much to my dismay -- let me know that the Team Leader position was now unavailable, but asked if I would like to interview for a regular Sales Floor Team member position (at less pay + responsibility, obviously) instead. I promptly told her no, stood up to shake her hand, + put an end to the proceedings. Here's the thing: how about if you had me interviewing for a completely different position, you could have been courteous enough to inform me in advance so that I could prepare my questions/research based on said position (or told you outright that I wasn't interested in that lesser position on the phone)? Highly unprofessional + a waste of my time.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Target (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.
There were 4 separate interviews. They were all very friendly and easy going. They told me the interview would take 15 minutes but they ended up giving mr 2 interviews on the same day. Be prepared to be there much longer than 15 minutes! . I dressed business casual and it seemed appropriate. I didn't wear a suit however.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Target.
I applied on the 25 of November. I didn't hear anything back so I called on the 3rd of december asking about it and she took my name and said someone would call that week. The monday after I got a call and the Hiring manager asked if we could do a phone interview. I did the phone interview and she asked me stuff like strengths and weakness's, why I want to work for Target, a time I worked as a team pretty basic questions. Also asked about Availability. She also mentioned to me about another position and if i would be interested. I said it might be something i would be interested but would prefer the one I applied for. (which is probably where I went wrong and why I didnt get an offer) I got an email a few days later saying they couldn't offer me a position at this time.

I interviewed with the Store Team Leader. He was very friendly, asked to tell him about myself, why I wanted to work there, and then a few Situation based questions. After the interview he said they would be in touch.

I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Target.
Interview process is lengthy. Interviewed with ~ 7 different people. Interview is based on SAR questions. Situation, Action, Results. Ex. Tell me about a time that you had to do multiple things in a short period. The key here is to focus on the actions. Target wants to know that you know how to explore and use your resources, that you take partners and work with a sense of urgency. The other key is use a real specific example, not broad ambiguous examples. Use people, places and names.
- all very similar questions. Just be prepared with multiple different examples. Answer Question
