    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Kohl's in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online through Snagajob and about a week later, I was called to schedule an interview the following Monday. I showed up for my 4 PM interview around 3:50 PM and waited around with about 7 other interviewees. The interviewer came out and got us exactly at 4 and we gathered around a large table in a room near the customer service desk. We went around the table, introducing ourselves. The way the questioning works is... the interviewer asks a question and the first three people answer. Then, he/she asks a different question and the second group of three people answer. This continues until each person has answered about 3 questions. Some of the questions my interviewer asked were: How would you describe a satisfied customer? Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a coworker. What would you do if you saw a customer stealing an item? I was pretty nervous because I have never had an interview before and was not sure what to expect but apparently I did well because I got a call 8 days later to come in for orientation the next day. I took the job because I am a college student and I need a little income to pay for tuition.

    There was no negotiation because it is a seasonal part-time position. The pay is $7.57 per hour. My manager said there will be 20 people hired to continue working for Kohl's after the holidays end.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Kohl's in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through snagajob.com within about 3 days I got a call to interview the next day at 10 am. When I got there I was given an application to fill out that basically just asked for my name and availability and previous work experience and was interviewed with 8 other people. The manager asked questions and everyone took turns answering. Its not so scary if you practice the interview questions but if someone answers what you had in mind before you, the best thing is to give an answer through experience of some sort. That's what I did I made sure not to repeat what someone else said. The interview took about 30 minutes and the manager said to expect a call in a couple of weeks. I got a call the next day asking to schedule a second interview. So the next day I scheduled the interview and it was a one-on-one with the same manager. He asked me about my availability again and told me the pay, what to expect if I get the job, and asked why he should hire me. After that he gave me paperwork to fill out so they could get my information to do a background check and all that good stuff. Within a couple of days I was told I got the job.

    Interview Details

    The questions were pretty much standard for any job. What is your background, what in your background prepares you for this job, what would you do in particular situations (like customer can't find what he/she is looking for, customer wants a discount that isn't available.) There were a few questions about dealing with difficult people and how you have resolved those kinds of situations in the past.
