    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.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Target in February 2017.

    Interview

    Don't expect an answer back, terrible recruiting failure, people are nice until you leave the door. This was two rounds, and even if you send them a follow up email, they don't respond. Very disappointed and honestly recommend to apply to a different program.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Drab.
    Cold.
    Unexpected.

    When I arrived in Amsterdam, NY, my reaction was "well this place makes Detroit look like Kokomo". The distribution center was a blue collar workplace. Ill-fitting jeans, hooded sweatshirts, and a general lack of ambition permeated every inch if the 1-billion square-foot space.

    Target failed to inform me that other candidates had interviews during the same session. This translated to waiting for each candidate to receive an interview before me.

    After a 3-hour wait, I saw the interview as an opportunity to have the worst interview of my life.

    Distribution Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH

    Positive Experience
    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.
