    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call about a week later setting up an interview. Showed up and was given a basic application to fill out. Interview only lasted maybe 10-15 minutes. Pretty laid back, the regional LP person interviewed me. Just described the job and the company and talked about prior experience. Was told that store manager makes final decision and, if selected, I would need to be interviewed again by the manager.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    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.

    Loss Prevention Supervisor Interview

    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Phone interview- was rather brief and to the point. Nothing out of the ordinary. Your basic questions of; "Why this company? Greatest strengths and weaknesses.." ect. As long as you are qualified, honest, and respectful...you should receive at the very least a follow-up interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary requirements not met.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kohl's (Bristol, CT) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. HR called almost immediately after I applied scheduling my interview for 3 days later. I show up at my assigned time, waited, only to have HR come out and tell that it was filled by someone coming back from a leave of absence but to keep checking the website anyway! Seriously, not even a phone call! Never again. NO compassion for applicants

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kohl's in June 2014.

    Interview

    It was simple and quick. Interviewed with the DLPM and then with the store manager, started within a week. They asked pretty "normal" interview questions. Asked about my background in the field and what experience I have. What skills I have that will relate to the job. Also, they asked how long I was planning on staying with Kohl's.

    Interview

    Basic retail interview process. Applying was a bit different when I applied however that will be changing very soon. Research company first and your location especially for an LP position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (San Diego, CA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online, was called shortly for an interview, the same week or next. I applied twice, the first time I spoke with the in store LP supervisor, went well, and interviewed with the LPDM the following week. I called to follow up a week later and never heard from anyone again. The second interview, a few months later, ended up the same way. To this day, I have never heard back even after reaching out for information numerous times.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Greensboro, NC) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was contacted less than a week later for an interview. I interviewed with the DLPM which lasted about 30 mins. I had to fill out more application stuff afterward. I then had an interview with the store manager the next day. I don't think that happens much, I was the only canadiate that they interviewed and I like to think that I made an impression. At that point I was pretty sure I had the job. I finished my interview with the manager and I was signed up for a drug test. Officially was offered the job and started a week after being contacted and a week and a half after applying.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you create professional relationships? Never got that one before. The DLPM asked how I would show how important associate awareness and training was to a manager who wasn't as enthusiastic about loss prevention? What am I motivated by in the morning when I wake up?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The DLPM called me and the salary range was $9-$12 and we negotiated based on my experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    Standard interview questions. They read down a list. Where do you see yourself in 5 years, what is your greatest strength/weakness. If they talk to you like a human, and then go, "oh yea I have to read these standard questions", it is probably going well. Be on time and know the company, ask good questions that are open ended. You want the interviewer to talk, talk, talk.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you deal with [insert difficult situation here].?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offered an amount, but since the hiring manager had already told me I was the best out of all the choices I knew I could ask for more. They had to approve it and I got the number. This is corporate they have to approve everything at a higher level. Just ask, if they can't they will tell you. Make them try, if they offer the job they probably do not have anyone else.
