Distribution Operations Manager Interview

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Target (Grand Prairie, TX) in May 2017.

Interview

Applied through Target website and received e-mail within a few days to sign up for phone interview. The first interview was about 45 minutes long and was a little intimidating because of how she jumped into it. I was expecting a little more conversation before jumping right into it. Was not my best interview at all. Second interview was 1 hour later. She was a little more personable, which helped settle my nerves. Not a fan of phone interviews at all. They use the STAR method to interview.
Sent thank you email after interviews and follow up email after one week. Response to follow up email was rejection notice. I know I'm qualified for this job but just had a terrible interview. Oh well.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. The interview started off with me discussing my resume. After discussing that they asked to know my strengths and opportunities for development. The last thing they asked was what pay do I expect.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (Columbus, OH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I received an email from an HR rep stating that they would like to interview me over the phone within the next couple of days. When the phone interview was conducted, the recruiter gave me a brief overview of the position and what is normally expected. I was then asked to share a bit about myself; I was also asked a series of behavioral questions (e.g. Tell me about a time you failed to complete a project; tell me about a situation where you helped an employee who wasn't meeting expectations). I was then provided more information about the company's expectations for their employees followed by a few more behavioral questions. Once the difficult but pleasant interview was over, the recruiter informed me that there would be a follow up in about three days if I were extended a second, in-person, interview. About three days later, I received an email and phone call about attending the second set of interviews at the Regional and Food Distribution Centers. The recruiter then put me in contact with an HR rep at the RDC. I was also sent an invitation to complete a mandatory, hour long assessment which included scenarios and deductive reasoning questions. Shortly after, the RDC HR rep contacted me with date/time/location of the in-person interview (which was scheduled a couple of days out). When the day of the in-person interview(s) arrived, I was immediately impressed with the clean and relaxed atmosphere of the facility. I was met by friendly faces and given a tour (by an Operations Manager) of the RDC where I asked tons of questions and received tons of good answers. I was then brought up to a huge lobby area to meet with two senior executives. One of the pleasant employees provided me with a bottle of water while I waited. During the subsequent interview, the execs asked to hear a bit about myself and then launched a lot of behavioral questions (very nerve racking but pleasant). I was then asked to wait in the lobby again to meet two more executives. They asked me, pretty much, the same questions as during the previous interview. Both interviews lasted about an hour. I was then sent over to the Food Distribution Center for a second tour. To my surprise, I was interviewed (informally) by two more executives. Eventually, I was linked up with the FDC Logistics Manager who showed me around the impressive FDC. After the process ended, and a couple days later, I was offered a job. Overall, the experience was pleasant from start to finish and observing the people really made me very enthusiastic about the position.

They ask a series of behavioral questions. Situation, Behavior, Result. I was interviewed by three groups of two people.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Target in January 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter reaches out for initial phone screen. A few days later, a follow-up screening/interview prep is conducted by the recruiter to get you ready for the in-person interview. The in-person interview is conducted at the Distribution Facility. A tour of the facility is first given by one of the workers (30-45 minutes) followed by a short presentation on Target. Then, two separate interviews are conducted (45 minutes long). The first was with the GM of the facility and a Senior Manager. The second was with two employees from HR. Both of these were in the same format- tell us about yourself and background, go over your resume, 4 STAR (behavioral, Google if you aren't familiar) questions in each interview, and finally a chance to ask the interviewers questions. Make sure you have a lot of details and specifics in your answers to their questions and also ask them a lot of questions (they encourage this).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (Woodland, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The initial interview took about 15 minuets to do. Basic interview questions. Why do you want to work for Target? Whats your best quality? What could you improve on. After that I was pushed to the second interview, which was STAR. This takes some time. Make sure you look at other interviewees' posts for the questions, the 5 that I was given were on there. Once the was completed I was then asked to take another exam. This was mathematical, as well as situational, behavioral, and customer service related. Make sure you have a pen and paper, and a calculator, you will need it. I did not make it to the next round after that, unfortunately.
