    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Kohl's in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was dropping off my application and a manager noticed me so she asked me to come right back for an interview. She asked all the questions on the sheet she had (she was only supposed to pick 3) so it ended up being a long interview. It was very relaxed. She just asked the usual - why are you here - what are your strengths - weaknesses - etc.
