Average Interview

Application

The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Houston, TX) in March 2015.

Interview

Met with a campus recruiter at an on campus career fair. Obtained some info from them and left them with my resume. Was contacted about a week later to set up the initial interview, which took place on campus with a current store manager. In depth questions, they are looking for specific examples of how you have handled problems/situations in the past. From there I was contacted about 2 weeks later to let me know that I was selected for the final interview. This interview took place in a store with 2 district managers. They each interviewed the candidates 1-on-1 and took detailed notes. They are also looking for specific leadership examples related to the questions they ask. After the interviews with the district managers I was given a tour of the store. I heard back from Kohls the following week and accepted the position. I loved how excited everyone seemed about working for Kohls, they really did seem like a family. The managers who interviewed me were all very friendly.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kohl's (Atlanta, GA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    They were very friendly and welcoming. The interview went so well, I didn't want to leave. It did how ever take really long to hear back from them for the final interview process. However, I found out I did so well I skipped the second round of interviews!!! They asked me questions like "why do you want to work for Kohls?" "what do you expect from kohls?" "tell us about a time where you could not finish a task" "how do you go about getting a task done that you are not really sure about?"

    first one on one interview in the career fair of Kennesaw State University. Then got an email from corporate regarding the final interview. This interview lasted 4 hours. It was divided into 4 parts. there was a group situational interview where I was told to solve a certain situation with a customer and work with another candidate thus formiing a team and working to give good customer service. Then there were 2 interviews of 30 mins each with the district manager and university relations manager of the company. after that we had a presentation of what the company is all about. It was a different way of interview but felt really comfprtable and friendly environment

    The recruiter came to campus for initial round, the interview was pretty standard and easy. Second round was in-store and started off with a group activity, with 5 observers, followed by two interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The group activity was probably the most difficult in trying to stand out from the other applicants in analyzing several workplace issues.   Answer Question
