    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Target (Shakopee, MN) in November 2011.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you didn't meet expectations on the job or on a project.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target (Kailua Kona, HI) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Was scheduled for an interview in the employee commons area of the store. It was done in three parts with three different managers of varying sections of the staff. The process is normally scheduled for a two day interview process but they were able to squeeze me in within the first day. They were thorough and asked very similar questions until the last manager. This person changed it up a little and asked about disciplining and reviewing staff and possible termination procedures I would follow. This is where I lost my chance I believe due to my inexperience in the termination of employees. I'm sure it happens more often than I expect but I never had to terminate an employee in my management experience. They gave the job I found out to the other gentleman that was interviewing that same day.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle terminating an employee for consistent late arrivals?   1 Answer
