easy, just be confident and show off your leadership qualities. Target is looking for people that can work with a team and get results. Innovation is a plus, but be yourself, don't try and fit a mold, different types of leaders are needed for different roles, and at different times.

Tell me a time you made a mistake. 3 part answers. Situation, your part in it, outcome and what you learned. Both ETL's were new to Target and no help in drawing out from you if your were stuck. STL and DM were good at explaining what they wanted in answers and asking follow-up questions. They are looking for team players who will remain calm in high stress situations.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Target in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for a Flow Team Lead Position. The interview consisted of three 30 minute interviews with an HR representative, an Executive Team Leader (Assistant Store Manager) and the Store Manager. The interview questions were behavioral/situational based and focused heavily on leadership experience. Overall it was a good experience. The skills test took about 30-45 minutes and tested math skills as well as behavioral/situational skills. The test also sought answers relating to your personality and how you interact with others.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Target in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was a phone call from a recruiter from the company. The recruiter asked a few situational interview questions during this phone call. After those questions, they scheduled a phone interview 3 days later. The phone interview lasted 30 minutes and consisted of mostly situational questions such as "Give me an example of a time you had to coach a difficult employee and what you did to bring about a change in their behavior?" There were also questions such as "What would your boss say is something you need to work on or what would your employees say you need to work on?" Overall the questions were very typical of what you would expect in the first interview with a company.

    The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Target in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a call from HR after about a week and a half. Took the online personality and skills test and then interviewed with with 2 ETLs. Both were very pleasant and professional. Both interviews consisted almost entirely of situational questions relating to previous work experiences. Definitely recommend practicing ahead of time as recalling some events, with little time to think, gets tough. I am scheduled to interview with the store manager next week., 6 days after my first interview session. So seems pretty quick so far.

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Target in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had three, one on one interviews with the management staff who recited "situational" questions from an interview booklet. It was obvious that they had no training on what to look for in a candidate, how to respond to a candidate, etc. I know now later after being on the interviewing side that employees are entirely picked by who they "like" best.
