Executive Team Leader Interview

Anonymous Employee in Macomb, MI

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Macomb, MI) in January 2017.

Interview

I initially came in contact with a recruiter during a Target presentation in one of my lectures. I applied and interviewed for (MI, OH, IN) region with Target over the holiday, in total the process took 3 weeks but would have been shorter if Christmas and New Years didn't fall in between the interview dates. The interview process was split into four parts: three interviews and one online assessment. The first and second interview took place over the phone and the the third interview was with the district manager of the district I would be assigned to. All three interviews utilize STAR/Behavior type questions that are prepared by HQ. One piece of advice I can give is, speak to results. You really want to describe the situation and be as specific as you possibly can, if not they will ask a follow question to try and get you to go deeper. It also helps to gather common STAR based questions and come up with a few scenarios prior to the interview, so when you finally get to your interview you can adapt and think quickly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target in January 2017.

    Interview

    I heard that I had been selected for an interview about two and a half weeks after applying -- my first interview was with a lady from HR headquarters. I was advanced to the next round with a district and store team lead at the end of that first interview. About a week later, I had a FaceTime interview with the district team leader and then the next day an over-the-phone interview with a store team leader. 4 days later I heard back that I had been selected.
    I don't want to be too overdone about this, but I really don't think you could ask more from an interview process -- the HR person that I got to work with was incredibly kind and helpful as a resource during the process. The district team leader that I spoke with was personable and friendly and so was the store team leader. As an additional plus, as you can see from the above description, the process moved very quickly. One other component -- right before my last two interviews, there's an assessment you have to take. You'll only have 48 hours to complete it from the time they email you -- they say an hour, but it's more like 90 minutes I would say (parts are timed, but parts are not so that's why it can get a little longer if you take a while to think). In general, I'm really appreciative for the people i got to interview with and the process in general -- it was much better in almost every regard than any other position for which I interviewed.

    Interview Questions

    • I can give you the specific questions they gave me, but I know another person who was interviewing at the same time and they obviously vary questions -- however, if you know all the questions on Glassdoor here -- you'll be totally good. I prepared for all of them and it was really useful -- of the 15 "tell me about a time when" questions I fielded over the three interviews, none of them surprised me. So, if you're really serious about this position, make the time and practice your responses or at least have an example ready to go for each question that folks have listed in their reviews. I'll mention a few below, but they're repeats from others that are on here --
      -Tell me about a time you had to give something up due to a work commitment.
      -Tell me about a time you coached someone at work.
      -Tell me about a time you collaborated with others when making a decision that would affect team members (at work) -- I can't remember the exact phrasing.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target (Las Vegas, NV) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process is long and it takes awhile for Target to get back to you. The interview process was hard to prepare for but typical STAR format question and answers will get you through it

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Target (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The process look about 6 weeks, and I had 3 phone interviews and 1 in person interview at a Target Store. After the first phone interview, there was an hour-long online test that tested your problem solving and personality. It was actually quote difficult. After the 4th interview, they lead you to believe that you had a really strong chance, and then simply sent an email saying I didn't get the job, and that I could not find out more information why, or even contact any of the recruiters back again. It was strange and frustrating.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for a first round phone interview with someone from HR. I skipped class ( was still in college at the time ) so I could have the interview. Waited, and waited, and waited, and no one even called. When I reached out to the HR recruiter who scheduled the interview, I was told "something hectic" occurred at one of the stores and therefore they were unable to attend to the interview.
