    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Met with recruiters the first time at my university's career fair (be very friendly, attentive and outgoing, they decide who they're going to interview from the campus based off of how you communicate with them). First interview was on campus with two ETL's. Second round of interviews was a Face-time call then phone call with two different people, but this round can be in person if you are close enough to the district they want you to be in. Be very prepared for STAR questions, all three interviews will be made up of those. It was very helpful to have scenarios ready with a beginning, middle, and end. If you do not give them the outcome in your answer, they will ask for it. Be as prepared as you can be but no matter what go into the interview with a positive attitude and mindset!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Target does a thorough job in interviewing leaders for stores. You are sent through a phone screen first, then to an in-person series of "round robin interviews" with groups of people with behavioral interview questions. The process takes about half a day if you do well and typically meet with one of the senior leaders if they are thinking of offering.

    Executive Team Leader (ETL) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Target (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Signed up for initial interview at career fair. Target provided some optional interview prep which I found beneficial. First interview was w/STL and ETL. Starts with small talk and your elevator speech. Then STAR questions come from a printed packet. At this point interviewers will begin to take heavy notes. I interviewed for about 30 min - after I was brought back in and told I'd be moving forward. Next interview I had the option (implied) of 1:1 or Skype interview. Tip: if you have the time/option, go meet in person. This gesture goes a long way with employers and allows you to show off many of your professional formalities (handshake, attire, eye contact, posture, non-verbals, etc.). This interview was with a District Manager. I loved the interview process with Target. They were friendly and most importantly professional, great experience.

    Tips: (1) show up early and scan the store. From this develop some questions that let the interviewer know you got here early to analyze store operations. (2) Always dress for the position you want! They advertise "business professional" so make sure your looking 100. (3) Take 5-10 secs after STAR questions are asked to formulate your answer, this will save you from rambling on or skipping a step in the process. If you don't have an answer ask to come back to the question at the end. (4) Research the company and ask questions the interviewer didn't see coming, this shows interest. (5) Bring copy of resume on resume paper.

    Highly refered by current employee in which I worked closely with with former employer. felt that I would be a GREAT asset to company from personal experiance. Was currently relocating to market recruiter knew this and still scheduled a assessment test in which I had a VERY short time to complete. Then had a 30 year retail professional interview with a 3 year(retail person) Store Manager( who admetted in the interview that TARGET wasnt his FIRST choice for Employeement). Didnt really understand why this happened. But as you enter the stores and see the way the employees act thier is a reason that they are always hiring.
