Store Team Leader Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2016.

Interview

Started with a Recruiter, then went through a few interviews with Recruiters then an assessment test that was very simple. Next interview was with a District Team Leader who used basic questions. Then a one day job shadow, then a FaceTime interview with a Group Team leader and an HR Rep. I meet all the qualifications and thought I would get an offer. They only hire a small percentage from outside and although I have years of leading large organizations I have no retail experience and that hurt.

Interview Questions

  • All basic questions tell me about a time when ------? Nothing that is any different. All answers were to be in the STAR format and you want to think big and strategic.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Target in November 2015.

    Interview

    I got recruited though email on indeed, started with a phone interview. Simple questions tell me about yourself? Job related experience to this position? Tell me about a situation that was difficult I'm your last position?. Once you passed that you go to the store for a interview with HR executive, she basically asks the same questions as she/he did on the phone. Immediately after you interview with the store manager. Depending on which position you apply for they have a criteria of questions they ask. You want to be able to tell them situations that relate to the position your apply for. Also if your going for management they are looking to see if you are a experienced manager. Tell me a time it was difficult working with a employee, and what did you do? For me they told me right there that I was moving on to the district manager interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Target (Orlando, FL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    A lot of SMART questions, meaning questions about specific situations you've been in. They also asked me how much I would want as a salary and relocation questions so be prepared for those. They have three rounds of interviews but I was only given one round.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Target (Dublin, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Passed the first interview, but declined the second round. My career goals simply are not with those of target at this point in my life. Typical type of interview process with a bunch of behavioral type questions. I was unimpressed with where the interview took place(in the backroom of a target store) which seemed to me as just being another number on there corporate spreadsheet.

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Target.

    Interview

    The hiring process can be quite lengthy with multiple interviews with various leaders. Behavior based interview questions are typically used. Mainly focused on driving results, motivating teams, performance management, team development, strategic thinking, and managing execution. Relocation is a must for higher level positions.

    Application

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

    Interview

    After applying online, received an email from HR Talent Acquisition. 1st phone interview to get to know my background and experience. 2nd phone interview was Behavioral style questions. I was told my info was being forwarded to a District Team Leader next. 2 weeks later, I received a "other candidates are being considered" email. There was no immediate need for STLs in my region. I also took the online personality test. Entire process was fairly straight forward with lots of waiting.

    3rd interview. Expected answers to be only 2-3 minutes. 1st interview I have had where you felt that much pressure to keep it short and sweet. Because you are so focused on speed, you may fail to hit on key facts.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Target in June 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter interview - to see if I was a viable candidate. Very open about the long process (4-6 weeks).
    Online assessment - real world cases and "what would you do" type questions.
    In-person interview with the DM.
    Next steps - video interview with Regional then VP or higher.

    The recruiter had posted for a position that the DM did not know about. Shortly after the interview the posting was taken down for the area. I was pleased with the opportunity for an interview even though there were no openings in the area. Very professional.
