Freight Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Cedar Rapids, IA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kohl's (Cedar Rapids, IA) in May 2015.

Interview

The interview process was very quick and didn't seem to be an actual interview. I was asked to introduce myself and talk about my work experience and my availability. Next I filled out an in-store application and the interview was basically over. Overall I wasn't happy with the interview, or the starting salary that I learned at the end of the interview, so in the end I was offered a position but turned it down.

Reasons for Declining

The interview process didn't feel right to me and the starting pay was 7.45/hour which was way less than what I was looking for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Kohl's (Capitola, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and a few days later got called for a interview. Figured that it would be a group interview and it was. This was actually my first group interview and i thought it went well. A person went around asking people questions and then writing down scores it appears. She explained that this was for a seasonal job.

    Sadly I ended up getting a rejection letter. I did however like them doing this instead of leaving me hanging with no response.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kohl's (Monrovia, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Apply online and just give them a call a few days later. During holiday hiring they have hundreds of potential interviews. You will start in a group interview and they will ask you the basic questions you've been asked before, such as; "What is great customer service to you?". Best advice here is just try to stand out, they want someone outgoing. After that they could give you a second interview right away or they will call you a bit later. The second interview pertains more to where they want to put you so it'll be questions about lifting things or sellings cards. If you can do what they want and have decent availability then you're golden.

    Interview Questions

    • Alot of personality questions in the group interview so be ready to be vague.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Kohl's (Bedford, NH) in January 2012.

    Interview

    My group interview consisted of about 8 applicants. The store manager would randomly pick an applicant to answer a question and then have the rest of the group answer one by one. They asked typical questions such as "is the customer always right."

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was offered a job a few days later. There was no negotiating the pay rate. When I showed up for orientation, they already had me scheduled for the rest of that week, so be clear as to when you can start work after your initial orientation.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Kohl's (South Lebanon, OH) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Today I went to my first ever job interview at Kohl's and it wasnt all that bad. When I first went in I went to customer service and told them Im here for a job interview, they then handed me a employment application and I had to fill that out while a couple others came and also filled out an application. Since there were a 2 other filling them out with me I then knew it was going to be a group interview, I hoped for an individual interview though.

    Well after we were done we waited a few minutes and then went into a room with a table where we were seated at and this is where the group interview began. The interviewer then asked us questions one by one randomly, so he would start with someone first and then the other person would be first for the next question and so on. The very first question we were asked was our name and also a little bit about ourselves and why we wanted to work at Kohl's.

    After about 6 to 8 questions were asked we then filled out 3 forms which consisted of what are some references, your authorization for a drug test, and also for criminal background check. So after everything was filled out we were free to leave. Overall it wasn't that bad but I would have much preferred a 1:1 interview since you are able to tell more about yourself personally.

    Interview

    Group interview. Asks a lot of scenario based questions. They start by walking the group from the front of the store to the back to see if anyone naturally talks to customers, if they talk a lot, etc.
    A lot of paperwork is completed during the interview. Sometimes, you have to talk over other interviewees to get to answer any questions. Some questions are directed to the group, and some to individuals.
