Executive Team Leader Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target in May 2014.

Interview

I was contacted by a recruiter through email. I would definitely advise anyone to get a recruiters email (go on to linkedin to find a recruiter) , if you are serious about working for this company. Contacting a recruiter seems to be the best way to actually getting an interview. Once I was contacted, we set up an interview time. So the first interview was over the phone. If you prepare, you will be fine. Make sure you also prepare yourself for the easy questions like "Tell me about yourself and Why do you want to work for Target". On top of those questions, the interviewer asked about 5 questions dealing with a specific event (i.e. Tell me about a time....). After the first interview, I was contacted that same day to schedule an in person interview with 3 different managers (district manager, store manager, and human resource business partner). My second interview was scheduled within a couple of days. It was the same style as the first interview. They may ask you the same questions. Don't be afraid to repeat your same answer. After the interview, I was told that if they wanted to pursue to the next step I would be contacted. Sure enough I was contacted a few days later to schedule my final interview with the big boss (market leader). My third interview was conducted over the phone and once again its the same style. I was contacted the next day and offered the position. I told God when he blessed me with this position that I would try to help people get to where I'm going. So my advice would be to prepare as much as possible with the interview questions that is provided on this website, research on Target, ask yourself what are your strengths/weaknesses, who are you as an individual (they really want to get to know who you are), relax, pray, and be yourself. A lot of people may say they are going to work you, well all jobs will work you but target will compensate you very well. Good luck and I hope this post helps you. It is an intense interview process but its quick. Process took a little over a week........ The interviewers are really really nice. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Target (Mission Viejo, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    First a recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn, first you have to pass a phone interview with a recruiter, my advice be very warm and inviting all questions she will ask will be over background professional and personal and job experience with behavior based questions, the recruiter will let you know if you move on too the next round, if the recruiter doesn’t then most likely you was not selected, second round interview will be with a Store Team Leader or STL in the district you apply for, this interview most likely will be done in person so make sure you dress the part, once again approach the interview with as much warmth and passion possible, the STL will ask a bunch of behavioral based questions be very specific as they are looking for select answers. In my interview the STL told me immediately that I would go on to the next round but I have been told that is not common, if you left a good impression on the recruiter you can email or call them and they can give you an exact answer, the third and final interview will be with the DTL which is a District Team Leader the interview here will be a rinse and repeat of the last interview usually if you make it to this step they want you and you would have to bomb the interview not to get the job. Usually offer comes 24-48hrs later

    Phone interview was long and standard in questions. Odd pauses and forced conversations. I was not told about the exact location until the interview ended. This led to me declining the offer after the hour long phone interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    First interviewed with recruiter on campus, then interviewed with a district director. The interviews weren't that hard. Mainly talking about yourself, what you can do for Target, and why Target. After that, district director asked me to go to one of the Targets in the area to speak with the manager.

    The manager showed me around, explaining this internship to me, and we had an informal interview. Afterwards, he told me to email him and arrange a time to have a formal interview so we can proceed to the next step. I emailed him but he never emailed me back.
