Senior Team Lead Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Target in June 2014.

Interview Details

I had my first interview with etl HR. Then I assumed I passed that interview. I was called in for an interview with the STL. I believe it went well. However, the store was undergoing a lot of head count cuts and even though I was more than qualified they decided to promote from within.

    Interview Details

    Honestly it's a joke to be honest it's really lame. To be honest just tell the interviewer what they want to here and you will have no problem. The process is simple not difficult at all except if they do not like the way you or talk they will turn you down just for that so, FYI go to interview dress properly and speak with proper etiquette

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Target in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is pretty standard situation based questions. Specific answers revolving around a previous experience. Generally you should have 4-6 scenarios for low/middle level positions, and 8-12 for higher level positions. At the Executive Team Leader position and below you will interview with 3-4 people. Team Members will interview in store with team leaders and and ETL. Team Leaders and ETLs interview with HR, one or two Store Team Leaders, and the District Team Leader. At the ETL level you interview with the one or two STLs, the DTL, and the Group Leader.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Target in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was recruited from outside. Did phone interview with a store HR ETl. Then an interview with a different store manager. Then a phone interview with district manager and then finally an interview with the store team lead and the ETL that I'd work with. It took 3-4 weeks and they were very forgetful. Had to call and follow up. They wanted me just had turnover in upper levels that affected their process.

    Interview Questions
    • None were unexpected. All pretty easy and common. They use a set formula for every single interview   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    Several interviews with Executive Team Leads within the store followed by and interview with the Store Team Lead and the District Team Lead. Interviews are fast and take about 10 minutes each.

    I was promoted from within the company so I'm not sure about the process for someone new to Target.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly situational questions such as "As you are working on a task, you see a guest with a small child and a birthday cake in the cart. She stops and asks you where your birthday hats are. What do you do?"   View Answer
