    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Target.

    Interview

    The entire process took 3-4 months with 7 separate interviews and over 10 interviewers. It was a long process but not really difficult. Mostly getting to know you type questions for culture fit and then many behavioral questions, i.e. Tell me about a time when... Mid-way through the process included a case study and mock 'coaching' meeting with a direct report over the phone. Through out the process a recruiter stays in touch to support and answer any questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Target in October 2014.

    Interview

    So there were two rounds. First round consisted of a telephone interview. Once you passed that you were given a coaching call where the hr manager essentially coached you on how to effectively prepare for the interview. Use this opportunity to ask as many questions as possible to ensure that you will be prepared for the 1:1 interview. Second round consisted of a 30 minute interview with four-five behavioral questions which asked how you prioritized your time, how effectively you worked in a team, so essentially the standard questions. They really wanted you to use the S.T.A.R. approach.

    Interview

    I arrived at a hotel where i was greeted by people who were working for Target. They were very friendly and led me to the waiting room. I was then called for my first interview, and it went well. They introduced themselves and then asked me to do the same. They asked me questions in english and french. He was a very friendly guy and I thought the interview went well. I was then called for a second interview and this process was not as great as the first. He didn't seem as friendly and wasn't as enthusiastic. If i didn't get the job, it was probably because of my second interview.
