    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Silverdale, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Silverdale, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    I applied online about a month later I applied again by accident. I got a call about a week later stating that they were holding interviews at 1 pm that next day. I dressed buisness casual and showed about 20 mins early. It was a group interview. We all went in and sat at a table. The lady was extremely nice and she asked us maybe 5 questions and we each had to answer them. They weren't hard at all. And then she through a "Kohls" question at us at the end. After we answered the questions she left the room and had a man come in, he asked us to tell him about our selves. I stated a couple facts about myself and why I wanted to work in retail. I'm a shy girl and I told him I know I may seem shy but I'm actually pretty outgoing. He said that's what he likes. So even though I seemed shy I made sure he knew I could be out going. After we talked to him he left and the hiring manager came back and said she was gonna call us back to talk to us one on one in order of the applications she asked on girl to go back, about 5 minutes later she came back and said "Were offering you a job at kohls!". I assume they brought the girl back to let her down in private. We filled out paperwork, got told that we would get called after the background check went through. Then I'll start the orientation process.

    Interview Details

    This will more than likely be a group interview where you will have to tell stories about how proud you were when you accomplished something great and explain why you think you will be a good fit. For this position most of your competitors will be pretty mundane and unless someone gives a really horrible answer or fails the drug test most of you will get the job.
