Executive Store Intern Interview

Application Details

I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Target in April 2010.

Interview Details

I applied online after learning about the internship opportunity at my university's job fair. I received a phone call from Target within a few weeks of meeting the Target representative from the job far. During the call, I mentioned my interest in being relocated closer to home. The man on the phone answered that he would refer me over to another district. Within a month, I received a surprise phone call from Target where I accepted the phone interview right then and there. After finishing the interview, I was offered a second interview in the city. A few weeks after, I received an offer.

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Target in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the career fair at my school. I had a first round interview at a nearby store 2 weeks later. I was asked a lot of behavioral questions based on my leadership experience. I also had to explain why I was interested in a career in retail management. After that, I had a 2nd round interview, which was relatively short, and then received an offer about 1 week later.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds of interviews. First, on campus interview. Asked three behavioral questions. Second interview was exactly the same thing, just with someone in HR.

    Inbetween interviews you have to do a situation analysis, personality test, and intelligence test. Super time consuming.

    Situation analysis shows you a video of a problem at work and then you have to choose the most effective answer (from multiple choices) and the least effective answer. You do about 20+ of these.

    Personality test is basic. Just choose the sentences that best describe you, out of a series of choices.

    Intelligence test is basically the math version of the SAT that is at least twice as long, nice.

    Interview Details

    Campus career fair, the people there were really nice and the onsite interview went great. The were full in my region, so I applied to another. One week later, got a phone call from a new HR manager and she was very inexperienced, but she was nice. She asked the questions poorly and her freshness was evident. The interview was short and dull on her end.

    University Job fair. Doing tons of questions before the interview. The 1st during the interview is do you need a sponsorship to work for Target. I said yes(as international student). Then the interviewer told me to be prepared that I will not get the position because of the sponsorship. I think i did not get the offer because of that.

    The interview process was a very good one. The interview itself was based on behavioral type questions, "Tell me about a time when..." and so forth. The person interviewing me was an actual Store Team Leader and was engaged the whole time. Sounds like there is a lot of opportunity for advancement within the company.

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Target in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Moved through fairly easy on-campus interview with two local store leads. Mostly behavioral questions, "tell me about a time when..." Next round of interviews was with a District Manager. Interview was extremely fast, again behavioral questions, but the manager seemed very disinterested like I was wasting his time.

    The hiring process started with a career fair for me where you were introduced to the area college recruiter from there you give them your resume and have a small interview. If they like you they set you up with an interview at a store. from there I had a phone interview and then another final phone interview. Long process, lasted way to long but it was worth it.
