Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2017.

Interview

It was about a ten minute phone interview with a very nice lady. She told me her backstory and how she eventually ended up where she was as a human resources manager. She mainly asked me about my past education/experience, strengths/weaknesses, and how flexible my schedule was. The questions were very general and it seemed that she wanted to talk for as long as I possibly could.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (North Chicago, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Was emailed by HR and set up a in person interview, was ushered to a room and interviewed (grilled) by 3 managers who seemed to take pleasure in making me uncomfortable with their questions. Very rapid fire and back to back with questions, sometimes one rewording same question right after the other. I am experienced and have been through other group interviews and never felt that they were trying to make you uncomfortable before.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target (Miami, FL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for the Assistant Manager Trainee Program at Target through my university. A week after handing in my resume at a career fair, I received an email stating that I was a potential candidate. I was asked to fill out the application online, and complete a 94 question online assesment thereafter. The assesment was a bit difficult. It contined analytical, behavioral, and math based questions. Throughout the process, I received an email requesting a phone interview. The interviewer was extremely polite, and very nice. The first question was to tell him about myself, then he asked me why I wanted to work at Target. The third question was why I would be a good fit for the company, then he asked what were my career goals and where I saw myself in 5 years. The next series of questions were behavioral based like" Can you think of a time where you had to make a difficult decision at work? Can you think of a school or work project that you recently worked on and what was the outcome? Did you ever have a problem with anyone at work and how did you handle the situation? Can you tell me about a situation at work or school were you had to help one of your peers with a work/school conflict? Lastly, he asked me if I had ever made a mistake or a wrong decision at work and what I learned from it. Then of course he asked me if I had any questions! The interview was about 20-30 mins. The next step is to wait to see if I hear from them in the next couple of days. I hope my review is helpful! : )

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (San Bernardino, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Started with a phone Interview
    Next step was another phone interview
    Then I met with the District Manager.

    Everyone was nice. In the end I didn't get an offer but I would rate the experience as positive. Every question is "Tell me about a time when..."

    I didn't hear back for a while so when I emailed my recruiter I was responded to with a cut copy paste rejection letter.
