    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Sacramento, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call the very next day. Beyond the original interview, it took quite some time to arrange the second interview. Lots of calls to the HR TL. Got to know her very well. The Sales floor ETL brought me in for a 1:1. Asked me many questions that I later learned were very directed by day to day business at Target. The Store Manager basically did not do a third interview. She just talked to me about what the job would entail, and soon I had a job offer.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call the same day to come in for an interview the following week. I was supposed to have an interview with the ETL first, but she was busy. I interviewed with the Store Team Leader. He was very friendly, asked to tell him about myself, why I wanted to work there, and then a few Situation based questions. After the interview he said they would be in touch.

    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

    Anonymous Employee in Harrisonburg, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target in July 2014.

    Interview

    Went through three interviews and received a generic "thank you for applying, but" letter. After three interviews, I think that you should receive an actual phone call from the store manager that you interviewed with.

    Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Santa Fe Springs, Los Angeles, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Since I was recruited from a University, I had two interviews with a Store Team Leader and a District Team Leader. Each interview had basically the same questions-- all were situation based. Tip: the Guest always comes first, not your project. Each interview took about 20-30 minutes. After passing the group interview with the District Team Leader and Store Team Leader, I had to do a drug screening test (which they don't do anymore). After the drug test, the HR team for the store that I was placed at called me for an orientation date. I went into the store, had two more interviews with the Executive Team Leader- HR and Store Team Leader. The only issue that I had with the interview process was (1) lack of follow up on application process and drug test, (2) no preparation email for orientation; what to wear, what information to bring, etc., and (3) job offer was through a team member and not through a higher up- and there wasn't a conversation about pay or anything.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Why do you want to work for Target?
      2. If you in the middle of a project and a guest interrupts you to ask you for help, what do you do?
      3. How did you complete a task with a coworker or partner that you may have disagreed with?   Answer Question
