    Case study, then two 1 hour interviews with different types of management. I began by applying on my school's website and then was offered to come in for a case study and then interview. It was your standard interviews, but the case study was relatively easy. The case study was done and then presented to a board of management and answered questions.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    Group interview. Took turns answering the same questions. Everyone just tried one upping each other. It didn't seem like a serious interview, more like just getting to know everyone. Awkward at first, especially if you're uncomfortable talking in front of others.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    Hiring varies from store to store. My interview was in a group. Typically done. Interviewees are asked a series of questions and two or three people will answer that question then the next set will get a seperate question and so on. Typically asked why you want to work there or why you think you can work there. Keep answers directed toward the job you want. If you have experience folding clothes or using registers stick with that. The interviewing managers do not care if you know how to flip a burger or stand next to a pool as a life guard.

    High pace.
    High energy.
    Quick response time.
    Fast learner.
    Enthusiastic about customer service.

    These will get you a job incorporate it into an interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and 2 weeks later I was invited to an interview. It was a group interview with 10 people. They asked us three questions :" Name a time when you went above and beyond for a customer!" , " is the customer always right ?", " Name a situation where you had to deal with a difficult customer !"
    Very easy and laid back interview . The store manager was super nice and made you feel comfortable . She told us about the history of kohl's and we filled out paperwork . When the interview was done she called three ppl out to her office and those three were not hired . After that, she came back with more paperwork, told us that we were hired and we were given our orientation date

    Extremely easy. If you can talk and have some experience in LE or loss prevention, you're set. My interviewer surprisingly called my referrals. My interview was under 30 minutes. If you can/need to, just ask a lot of questions.
