Sales Floor Team Leader Interview

Sales Floor Team Leader

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in April 2009.

Interview Details – Interview vas very corporate like. Had to pass 3 interviews. Initial screening one, with direct supervisor; Executive Team Leader and Store Team Leader, store manager. Questions are mostly situational questions; what would you or what did you do in so and so situation. Of course, mostly geared toward customer service.

Interview Question – As always, i think the most difficult question of an interview is; tell me 2 or 3 things about yourself that need improvement.   Answer Question

Sales Floor Team Leader Interview

Sales Floor Team Leader
Greenville, SC

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Target in April 2013.

Interview Details – Went through a short phone interview and was asked to come in for a face to face interview. Had two face to face interviews on day 1 with two different ETL's. Was asked to come back in for second set of interviews. Because I was an external hire applying for a TL position, I was told I had a longer interview process. Came back on the second day and had two more interviews with a total of 3 ETL's and the Store Manager. Many of the questions were the same in all 4 interviews. Scenario type questions. Name a time when..... What did you do.....who was involved....what was the outcome. Felt like I really nailed the interviews. Was told that I would be called in a day or two after everyone met together to discuss my interviews. Never received a phone call...just got a form email rejection saying I was not being offered the position. Called to see if I could get an explanation and no one would give me one.

Interview Question – As long as you have experiences, the questions are not difficult. Some of the experiences did not fit my experiences though so I honestly had to make something up since there was no other option.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Target.

Interview Details – I attended a carrer ffair at U of M and gave one of the recruiters my resume. I was contacted a few hours later by the HR manager and scheduled for an interview. The process consisted of four interviews with a Sales Floor Team Leader, Executive Team Leader, HR Manager, and finally the Store Team Leader. Two days later I was contacted by HR to come in for a final interview with the District Manager. All interviewers were very pleasant.

Pasadena, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in April 2010.

Tell me a time when you had a difficult team member and how you dealt with that.

Interview Question – Questions focused on managing teams and persuading people to your opinion. They ask for concrete examples. "Tell me a time..."   Answer Question

Sales Floor Team Leader Interview

Sales Floor Team Leader
Warren, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Target in June 2011.

Interview Details – Very lengthy. I feel they miss out on great people just due to excessive interviewing. I had 3 in-person interviews and 3 phone interviews. Way too much. If someone is meant to work out at Target, you won't see it until you get on the floor. Performing interviews has further reinforced my belief in this. Depends on the people you interview with. If they like you, they will push you through. Also, in my experience, HR was slow moving with getting back to me in between interviews.

Interview Question – No difficult questions, just need scenarios to fit and highlight your experience that transfers to a leadership position.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I negotiated pay. Don't let them low-ball you. Benefits are good and fair.

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Target in October 2010.

Interview Details – Applied online like everyone else. A few days later they contacted me for an in person interview. The interview as a little lengthy and I had to really go into detail.
