Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Jacksonville, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kohl's in February 2010.

Interview Details – I first applied through my college class. I applied online and got an email to set up a phone interview two days from then. The phone interview was about an hour long, I was asked mostly behavioral questions. After that I was called back for a group interview. It was with three employer of Kohl's and 5 other candidates. That was also about an hour long and they were more situational questions. After that I was put straight through that same day to have a one-on-one with the District Manager. I received a call within that week with a job offer.

Interview Question – Give an example of a time you disagreed with your boss and how you handled the situation?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You have to be relocatable, that is non-negotiable, but they do a GREAT job of getting you in the area you want to be. Depending on experience you can discuss pay.
