Team Leader Interview

Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Target.

Interview Details

I was promoted from within, but if you're from the outside it's simple as putting in an application online or on the in-store kiosk. It comes down to being if you have open availability or availability to what the store wants. If you have that and they are hiring, they will call you in for an interview. I don't know the process of how they interview from outside for team leader, but from within you have to interview with store manager and district manager.

Interview Questions
  • It comes down to situations and outcomes. They'll ask questions about scenarios and want to know how you reacted and what your reaction did for the situation. You really want to answer in that format because they score you on that.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
I was promoted from within and tired to get my pay higher since I was with the company for so long before being promoted, and was told it's a standard amount and that they would be unable to make it anything higher.

    Negotiation Details
    I came from a supervisor position at another company making $40,000 per year. The human resources manager at Target told me that she couldn't offer me any more than $15.00 per hour. Due to the close proximity of the store, I accepted a salary less than my previous salary.
