Interview Details

Group Interview. It was very general questions which produced very general answers. Wasn't areas where you could stand out in the interview. Pay is non negotiable at 7.45 an hour. I thought that the interview was not a big hit because you couldn't get to know the person nor show the manager what you could bring to the table.

Interview Questions
  • The questions were general such as: when was a time you went above and beyond for a customer or when was a time when you had a difficult customer and how did you handle it. The questions didn't really get to be tailored to a specific person so they just kept it general.   Answer Question
Reasons for Declining

the pay rate was ridiculously low from what I was asking and was told that it wouldn't be an issue to meet my requirements.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Kohl's in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was brief, then a walk about around the store. Two day's later, just put on a register with a book to learn from. The book was not very helpful. You just pretty much had to learn on the job.

    I handed in my application in store, and after three or four days i got a call from HR to schedule an interview with me. I got there 10 mins earlier than agreed upon time. There already were a few people waiting outside the office to interview. My interview just lasted 6 mins, normal question like where are you from, why you choose this position, how do you feel like Kohls, what is your major, what is your available schedule, can you do early openning, etc.

    Interview Details

    They were very flexible with the interview time (i had to reschedule). They were prompt and did not keep me waiting when I showed up for the interview. They asked me what my prior experience was and how I would use that knowledge to help customers. I was offered the job on the spot. Dress business casual, do not over dress for it.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    Applied via snagajob and was contacted about 2 days later for a group interview. I prepared for the group interview by reading all of these reviews and found it to be quite helpful. After the group interview, I filled out paperwork and met with the store manager a few days later for a 2nd interview. I haven't heard the outcome yet, but it seemed like they were pretty desperate for help.

    I was interviewed on the spot and was asked minimal questions. I did not know much at the time of hire and they were well aware it was my first job and they still hired me as a student fresh out of high school. The same day I was interviewed I was hired and came back the following day for training.

    I applied online - interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview, I think there was about six of us sitting in a circle and there was two managers. They would ask a question and each person would have to give their answer after one another.

    Interview Questions
    • The only question I can remember is a very common one: "Tell us a time when you had to go above and beyond to help out a customer or co-worker."   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Kohl's in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a group interview in the later part of last year at Kohl's that I ended up missing by going the wrong day, so when I reapplied, I was surprised to get a call for another group interview. The interview day was February 23rd. I ended up being the only female in a group of 6 people. We started off with our names, how old we are, what we applied for, and a little something about ourselves. Then some basic questions were tossed out and anyone was allowed to answer them. Stuff like: "What do you know about Kohl's?" "Where was the first store opened?" "What do you consider good customer service when you are shopping?"
    I was nervous because I have only had 3 interviews in the past, and I felt like I didn't stand out as much as the very talkative guys in my group, so I was surprised to have received a call about an hour later with an offer.
    Yesterday, February 27th was orientation. We took a tour of the store, stock rooms, security office, watched some videos, and filled out some paperwork.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Offer was $8.05 an hour.
