Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier
Bismarck, ND

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kohl's in July 2013.

Interview Details – 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 Question – your major is accountancy, do you want try cash office in early morning?(It was really unexpected, I just planned to apply for cashier, but Bismarck stores not only Kohls are very short of employees, so they glad to give me better offer)   View Answer

Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – If I called the reference you provided, what would they say good about you and what would they say bad about you   Answer Question

Sales Associate/Cashier

Interviewed at Kohl's

Interview Details – 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.

Sales Associate/Cashier

I applied online and 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 Question – 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

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier
Staten Island, NY

I applied online and 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.
