Executive Team Leader Interview

Executive Team Leader

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details Target came to my school, to which I attended an information session. Then, I applied online and had a phone interview (screening). After I had a meet-and-greet mingle with other district managers and candidates. The day after I had my interview. It was about twenty minutes long and 2 district managers interviewed me.

Interview Question – They are all behavioural questions. Prep as much as you can. I googled questions online.   Answer Question

Human Resources Team Leader Interview

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target in April 2012.

Interview Details I interviewed at Target, recent grad no experience really. Still got hired. They look more for the way you present your self and your personality rather than you actual experience. The focus is on FFF (fast, fun and friendly).
Questions:
why do you want to work for target?
Strengths/weaknesses
experience related to this area
and then behavioural questions

Smile and be friendly, emphasis on the quest is always right and the focus is to please them.

Cashierr Interview

Interviewed at Target

Interview Details 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.

Interview Question – Name one mistake and how you fixed it   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details It was a mass interview at a hotel. When I arrived, I was seated in a waiting room with 6-8 other people who were also waiting for interviews. I was then called to the big room next door where there were several tables and other individual interviews occurring. The person who interviewed me had 2 pages of questions where she would ask me a question and wrote down my answer. It took probably 5-7 minutes. I was then seated back in the waiting room for 15 minutes and then had a second interview with a different person, which took much longer (10-15 minutes) because the questions required more lengthy answers. The first interview focused more on what I have done in the past whereas the second interview focused more on what I can bring to Target and what I would do in a certain situation. The answer they seemed to look for was an emphasis on customer service. My interview was 3 days ago and I am waiting to hear back from them.

Interview Question – What will you bring to Target if you were employed?   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Target.

Interview Details Applied online, got an email the next day to setup an appointment for an interview.
The worst experience ever. Had to wait an hour before I was called in for my interview... People walked-in after me and went in to interview before me (job fair). Did not even ask for my resume (I gave it to them in the middle of one of my interviews), did not even ask for references. Nobody else was as professionally dressed as me (everyone was wearing normal clothes). Three interview process, all in one day and were offering jobs on the stop.
