Operations Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target in October 2018.

Interview

The process began with a phone interview with a recruiter, which consisted of a few behavioral based questions and questions concerning experience. Next was a internet conference at a local Target store with leadership from the DC that I had applied with. Very awkward. Rejected by a form rejection letter email. Very impersonal process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Stuarts Draft, VA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted through Indeed by the a recruiter. I agreed to speak with her over the phone. The first phone call we had was a screening phone call. She asked basic questions about myself and my history. At the end of the call she asked if I had any questions and stated that the next step would be to submit an application online and then wait for an email regarding a second phone call. I received the email a couple days later and scheduled my next interview.
    When she called me for the second interview she didn't waste anytime on beginning the questioning. She reminded me that the questions should be answered using the STAR method. I did some research on the method before the phone call and thought I had a good idea of the things that I needed to say. Unfortunately I did not give myself enough time to practice and I do not feel like I answered that questions to the best of my ability. She must have agreed because she ended the call be saying that she had a few more interviews to complete and I would know something by the end of the week 'either way.'
    Today I got an email from HR stating that I was not chosen to move on in the process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Rialto, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    2 interviews with the recruiter. One interview with senior management. Nothing above average. As long as you spit out lean management, six sigma, process improvement, you should be good to go. They are very basic but dont expect much career development from them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a phone call from a recruiter (first interview), then went on site for a tour and follow up interviews.

    Pros: They were really fast about their call backs. Even for the rejection call. The recruiter was friendly and helpful. Listen to their feedback and guidance if they give you any.

    Cons: In the end, I didn't get any feedback as to why I did not get the job or what I could have done better. They also follow the STAR methodology very closely. They ask you about 9 STAR questions and have a sheet in front of them taking notes for each category.
