    Apparel Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hacienda Heights, Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Target (Hacienda Heights, Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to be an Apparel Team member online at home. They asked me for all the usual background things and after that I took a what would you "describe yourself better personality" test. After I got a call a week later asking what times I would be able to come in for an in person interview. I came into the interview pretty nervous (my first in person interview) and spoke with someone who wasn't the original person I had arrangements with. Luckily she was really approachable and made me feel much better going into the interview. Unfortunately, the HR rep wasn't in so I wasn't able to proceed with the second interview on the spot but was told I'd come back in to finish it off in a few days.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (Savannah, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was first given a tour of the facility. I was then interviewed by 4 people that were in groups of 2. It was primarily behavioral based questions. The whole process that day took about 4 hours. DC operations are round the clock. You will either work Friday-Sunday 12 hour shift, or Monday-Thursday 10 hour shifts, however, I was also told I would have to come in earlier and stay later in order to be a team player so really, you'll be working more then 10 hour shifts. Majority of your time will be spent on the floor with your team of material handlers.

    Three stages, each with a different level of senior management. All of the interviews were based on 4-5 situation based questions, typically with something like "Tell me about a time when..." or "When did you last..."

    They are looking for Situation, your behaviors, and the outcome. How concise, coherent, and closely relevant the answers you give are all scored to give them a pass/fail rating.

    You get to do at least 2 of the 3 interviews regardless of how you fare. The final one only comes if you pass the first two.
