    What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be an architect. My mom used to clean houses for a living. Much to her chagrin, I would tag along during the summer months on jobs as she cleaned rich, fancy homes.

    The path of my 15 year leadership journey with Target is a tale of two stories. The first story began with my first position as a team leader, and I was young and hungry to be successful. I worked really hard and thought that it would translate to success.

    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Target in June 2017.


    I was an internal hire but you meet with the store manager and the executive team lead for assets protection. A lot of the questions have to do with guest interactions so if you haven’t any retail experience it might be difficult. After the interview you wait about a week to be told whether you got the position or not after the hiring staff collaborates on you. If you hire internally you get lots of support from your manager.
