Communications Intern Interview

Communications Intern
Menomonee Falls, WI

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Kohl's in October 2011.

Interview Details – Though my University career fair I was able to submit my application directly to University Relations staff and have the chance to talk one on one with a few of the current employees. Overall they were very nice and excited to be talking to all of the students. There were a few recruiters who seemed less interested, but in general all of the recruiters were very friendly.

Next I received notification of an on campus interview. The interview was with two Kohl's corporate staff. I believe one was from the OSA team and the other was from another related area of the company. The interview lasted about a half hour and consisted mainly of behavioral and get-to-know-you questions. My advice for this interview is to be very personable, relax, and really try to show who you are and why you are excited about Kohl's. They will ask you about times you failed, succeeded, lead a team, had a problem with a team and how you handled it, very simple questions. They will taylor any other questions specifically to your resume, so be honest, upbeat, and sincere.

Next I was contacted by the head of University Relations that I had been moved to the next and final round of interviews to take place at Kohl's corporate headquarters. They were very generous in setting me up in a hotel, providing transportation, and taking all of the prospective interns to dinner the night before. The day of interviews they provided bus transportation to headquarters for all of the candidates. During the day they made sure we had breakfast and lunch, gave us group tours of their amazing building, and had a couple presentations by VP level employees as well as a departmental panel discussion. There were roughly 150 other candidates that day, all together, for all of the various department internships. For the communications department specifically we were separated off during part of the day for three one-on-one interviews with managers and a VP of the department. They were very conversational in style and focused on seeing how well you would fit into the corporate culture. For this round of interviews, really relax and focus on showing how you fit into the culture that they present to you that day. They focus on being a team player, leadership, initiative, and going the extra mile on anything you do. They are not a competitive environment, and they will most likely be turned off if you give them that vibe.
