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

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.

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.

Sales Floor Team Leader Interview

Sales Floor Team Leader
Albuquerque, NM

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

Interview Details – Fast, fun and friendly ;) I began working at Target as part time in the photo lab. Within the first month I was asked to attend a panel interview called " Meet the Talent". 2 weeks later I was offered a GSA position and took it right away, I was so excited that my hard work was paying off :) a GSA is a guest service associate, front lanes manager. By this time out store was under going remodel for the new "p-fresh" grocery section. About 3 weeks prior to our grand opening I was asked if I would consider taking on the "PA" role,ummm yes!! It is a perishables assistant, in other words I kinda run the area as well as order all the food 3 times a week! I was so excited!! I went through 3 interviews... 1 with the hard lines ETL, 1 with the Connsummables CTL and then 1 with my GSTL. I was given the position right away. I have been doing that now for about 5 months. I was recently offered a TL position for hard lines and am waiting for my final interview with the DTL, it will be a phone interview. I have already interviewed with my Hardlines ETL, HR & STL and am just waiting for the DTL to sign me off and I will be ready to start :) loves this company!!!

Sales Floor Team Leader Interview

Sales Floor Team Leader
Shakopee, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Target in November 2011.

Interview Details – I met with an Executive Team Leader and then the Store Team Leader. They asked questions in the STAR format and wanted 10% situation, 80% Action, and 10% Result. Have stories ready so you sound like you know what you're talking about. They usually interview at least 10 people for every Team leader position, so make sure you shine.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you didn't meet expectations on the job or on a project.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They offered me the job on the spot but told me that they had to speak with their supervisors to find out what wage they could give me. Because of my Bachelor's degree and 2 years of General Manager experience, they wanted to give me more than the standard $14 an hour. When they got back to me, they offered me $15 an hour and I took it.
