Executive Team Leader - Human Resources Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Luis Obispo, CA
Declined Offer

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Target (San Luis Obispo, CA) in June 2017.

Interview

I was told I was interviewing for an ETL-HR position. Following the completion of the first interview with the recruiter and leading into the second I was asked if I was interested in a team leader position. I politely said I didn't know and I'd look into it. During my second interview the STL pushed the team leader position on me again, saying I could move up into an ETL in 6-12 months. When I was contacted about the third interview I politely emailed back that I was uninterested in the team leader position due to a variety of reasons, one being salary, another being the fact that I have a degree. The recruiter then called me and tried to talk me into the team leader role. I ended the conversation saying I'd consider it if the money improved. During my third interview I met with the DTL. He was nice and polite but at the end of the interview told me I was being offered the team leader position because I didn't seem ready for the ETL HR position despite having a year of supervisory experience. He then cited one of my answers, when I was forced to contact a manager about an employee after speaking with her about her behavior several times to no avail, as the reason I wasn't ready. He also insinuated that I have poor work ethic despite my school and job history proving the exact opposite. He followed up by saying, concerning the team leader position, that I could move up in 12-18 + months. I declined and the interview ended. I then sent a short email to the recruiter stating that I was not interested in the team leader position, and thus concluded my experience with Target. I left feeling as if they were never even considering me for the ETL role despite selling me on it in the beginning. I will never consider a job with Target ever again thanks to this experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Evansville, IN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed over the phone with a company recruiter named Emily Boggs. She asked me to interview with the store manager and the regional manager. All 3 interviews are STAR format, but the two managers that interviewed me both asked about what I do in my spare time and then asked follow up questions regarding this I should have been more prepared to answer this question because in retrospect I feel I didn't get the job because I have children and mentioned this. The store manager even proceeded to ask me how many kids and what sports they are involved with. It seems very strange that they both jnquired about this instead of just primarily sticking to the STAR questions which I feel I answered exceptionally well.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Gainesville, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career resource center and signed up for an interview. The first interview was a 20 minute long interview with mostly behavioral questions and the most important question, "why target?" If they like you, then you move on to a second round interview with the same questions but you're in a 1-on-1 interview with a supervisor. I received my offer a week later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Normal, not hard, took 1.5 months to complete. Wish I knew what I was getting into before. Not a good job experience-think hard before accepting and taking the plunge, a paycheck is not everything.
