    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with about 6-7 other people. Basic retail questions were asked, mostly about hypothetical situations while on the job. I tried to relate to what other people said as well. I quickly realized that if I could form a complete sentence I would get the job.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    It was very laid back, we all took turns answering the same questions. Sometimes the answers were repeated a few times but that didnt seem to matter to the interviewers. I interviewed on a Monday and got a job offer by phone the next day.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    It was an easy process. Initial contact was made at a career fair at Cal State Fullerton. They invited me to an interview with two Kohl's recruiters. They ask basic interview questions (nothing tricky). Then was invited to an interview with a regional manager. This was a very laid back interview once again which may be attributed to the personality type of the interviewer. Then I received a phone call within two weeks with an offer. Overall, they want to see if you are driven and willing to pursue a potential career with Kohl's.
