    Executive Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Target (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    First interviewed with recruiter on campus, then interviewed with a district director. The interviews weren't that hard. Mainly talking about yourself, what you can do for Target, and why Target. After that, district director asked me to go to one of the Targets in the area to speak with the manager.

    The manager showed me around, explaining this internship to me, and we had an informal interview. Afterwards, he told me to email him and arrange a time to have a formal interview so we can proceed to the next step. I emailed him but he never emailed me back.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Target (Morgantown, WV) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was approx. 10 min. early for a 12:00 appt. I was told to tell the associate at customer service that I was there for an interview. The young lady at customer service said she would let him know I was there, just have a seat and he would be out soon. I looked around for a place to sit...she laughed and said go into the Starbucks and he will meet you in there. I sat inside the Starbucks for approx 15 min. I wondered if she meant the bench at the entrance to the Starbucks so I moved there for another 10 minutes...by this time it is 12:20 and I have another appt. at 1:00 so I tell the girl at customer service that I have to go and to let him know that I couldn’t wait any longer...she just stood there and looked shocked and said nothing as I waited so I left.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Target in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call for an interview a day later. Granted this is the holiday season so they are busy and need people, but it was still nice to be gotten back to in such a timely manner. I went in for my interview a few days later expecting to be told this is just seasonal and don't get your hopes up for more than that. However, I came out with the job and the promise that if you do well and show up, you can keep working. As a recent grad who hasn't been able to get a job in my field, I was slightly sad to be applying to a part-time retail job. After my interview I felt a lot better, as the 3 people I talked to all assured me that after talking to me they could tell I would move up the ladder fast, and even described positions they could see me in in the future. Definitely made me feel better and excited to start work!
