    Sales Floor Team Leader Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Selected by management to be "put through interview process". Had several days of preparation with leaders in my store. Prepped me by telling me some of the questions I would be asked. Did mock interviews. Interview was with district manager. Interview itself was formulaic and consisted of preselected questions based on situational experience. Many questions appeared to serve the sole purpose of giving the district manager "dirt" on leaders in my store by asking who the weakest leaders are. To pass the interview I was required to use Target "jargon/buzz words" to show commitment to company brand.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Interview process is lengthy. Interviewed with ~ 7 different people. Interview is based on SAR questions. Situation, Action, Results. Ex. Tell me about a time that you had to do multiple things in a short period. The key here is to focus on the actions. Target wants to know that you know how to explore and use your resources, that you take partners and work with a sense of urgency. The other key is use a real specific example, not broad ambiguous examples. Use people, places and names.

    Interview Questions

    • all very similar questions. Just be prepared with multiple different examples.   Answer Question

    Sales Floor Team Leader Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Target (Harrisonburg, VA).

    Interview

    Interview process is structural. You interview with the department (or Executive TL) manager first and then with Store TL (or Store Manager). I believe the new hiring process after 2012 also has you interview with the District Manager as well. Be prepared because they do grill you on facts of the company mission and sales for the department youre interviewing for.

    Interview Questions

    • None. A lot of the questions are retail based and if you have enough experience in retail, most of it should be logical.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They don't negotiate salary but give you an upfront hourly rate. But I had not much experience when I had interviewed. I'm sure its based on experience as well when they are willing to negotiate with you.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    Had an interview with three store managers separately and had my last and fourth interview with the district manager and district human resources manager. I was extremely surprise that they would require such an extensive interview process for such a low level position within a store. All interviews as behavioral based questions so if you've never experienced this type of setting then you'll want to brush up. Brag as much as possible!

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation for an hourly position. I found out and accepted a week after my last interview was complete.
