Store Manager Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Target in July 2017.

Interview

This was the initial phone interview. The set up was friendly and easy. The call was expected to last thirty minutes. Disappointed when the interviewer asked if the store location was within a commute. Thought the interviewer would have researched this prior to selecting me for the phone interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Moscow, ID) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The lady I interviewed with was very nice, didn't talk down to me, and was eager to be interviewing me. She asked a lot of your average interview questions like ,"tell me about yourself", and "why would you like to work at Target?" Just make sure your prepared to explain how you would deal with a number of retail scenarios. For example, how you would deal with customers, inventory issues, etc.

    Interview

    Position required one interview. The interviewer was pleasant and laid back but the questions were not easy. A lot of situational questions were required of me. Most the questions started with a phrase like "tell me a bout a time when" or "if given this situation, how would you respond"? Make sure to know why you want to work for the company because that will be a question.

    Interview

    After on-campus recruiting, hiring process involved an on-line test and an in-person series of interviews, focused around a scripted and structured behavioral interview.

    The online exam included two overall series of questions: one quantitatively assessing past experiences (e.g., how many formal leadership positions have you held) and another testing mathematical competency. The behavioral interview, meanwhile, was standard.

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing particularly surprising or difficult about the interview process. The intense structure to the behavioral interview came off as slightly surprising, however, but it mostly added instead a sense of disconnection with candidates; I did not enjoy the interview, and I could tell I was simply being screened rather than conversed with.

      Preparation for behavioral components will be to a candidate's advantage for the interview. Definitely review your answers to basic interview questions, and prepare by researching the company in-depth. Still, expect extreme structure to your interview and do not look forward to an ongoing discussion with your potential employer.   Answer Question
