    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lancaster, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Lancaster, PA).

    Interview

    Brutal! This was for a group of recently minted MBAs. We were brought in as a group of six. They made the environment highly "passive aggressive" and competitive. I've been an athlete all my life but was very uncomfortable in this experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't recall many questions but all I could think about was getting out of there quickly. The culture was terrible. My sister worked at Wal Mart corporate and treated her like a queen.   Answer Question

    Barista - Starbucks Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Target (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in the morning and about 2 hours later, they called me to set up an interview. Unfortunately though, I missed it and they didn't bother to leave a voicemail which was kind of annoying and it took me 3 days of calling back everyday to finally set up a time and date.
    Anyways, it was pretty hard. Almost all of the questions were behavioral (the "tell me about a time when you..." kind of questions) and it didn't end up being something I can elaborate too much on since I'm a college freshman with no work experience and the scenarios I provided from my years in highschool weren't anything substantial to really impress my interviewer. So yeah, make sure you have some sort of experience in anything that you can actually expand on.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chambersburg, PA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Chambersburg, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter and a group of Operations Managers during a recruiting event on campus. I spoke with multiple different managers and was approached by the recruiter afterwards to have an interview right then and there. I couldn't because of a previous engagement, but then started the process via email and online. I was offered an in person interview, but had to fill out an application first. This process was standard, but then I also had to complete a logic and personality test as well. From there, I received the official interview offer, and went to the distribution center in Chambersburg. Once there, I toured the facility and then had two rounds of interviews, each 45 minutes long. They followed the STAR method and you were asked to have 8 scenarios prepared. Following the interviews, I received a verbal offer within a few days, and then following a drug screening, received an official offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Target (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I put in the application online and they got back to me two months later, which was somewhat convenient because I just quit my other job. They left me waiting for an hour and a half for my interview, and one of the applicants just got up and left because she got there a half hour before me. There were only two people interviewing. They told me to be there at 12:30 pm, I showed up at 12:15 pm and they told me 6 minutes. I didnt get interviewed until about 1:50 pm.The interview was only 15 minutes and somewhat simple, it was for me since I prepared for it. But, if youre not good at coming up with something on the spot, this interview might be difficult
