    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Houston, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Met with a campus recruiter at an on campus career fair. Obtained some info from them and left them with my resume. Was contacted about a week later to set up the initial interview, which took place on campus with a current store manager. In depth questions, they are looking for specific examples of how you have handled problems/situations in the past. From there I was contacted about 2 weeks later to let me know that I was selected for the final interview. This interview took place in a store with 2 district managers. They each interviewed the candidates 1-on-1 and took detailed notes. They are also looking for specific leadership examples related to the questions they ask. After the interviews with the district managers I was given a tour of the store. I heard back from Kohls the following week and accepted the position. I loved how excited everyone seemed about working for Kohls, they really did seem like a family. The managers who interviewed me were all very friendly.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kohl's (Houston, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview last for about 30 minutes, with about 6-7 general questions. Most of them are "what did you do" type of questions. These questions are very easy, but it will show your personality and managerial behaviors. I was expecting to be asked some questions related to Kohl's or any experiences related to retail management, but most of them asking about failures and mistakes in the past.

    Store Management Trainee (MIT) Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Kohl's (Houston, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I originally found out about the Store Management Trainee (MIT) Program at my university's career fair. I was not impressed by the on-campus recruiters working at their booth. They seemed bored and gave off the impression they didn't want to be there. However, I was able to find out some information about the program and was able to sign up for an interview for following week after giving them my resume. After rescheduling the interview several times do to problems with our schedules I was able to have a phone interview that lasted about 30 minutes. The woman who did my interview was very nice and very apologetic for having to reschedule and seemed very friendly overall. Throughout the interview, the phone call was dropped several times causing me to repeat the answer to several of her questions. At the end of the interview she allowed me to ask any questions and then said to check my email for a link to apply for the position through their website. After several days passed and I still hadn't received an email I called and left a voicemail followed by another voicemail a week later. Neither call was returned and I have yet to hear from my interviewer and don't expect to at this point.

    AA Area Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Houston, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I worked for Kohls for a little over 2 years before applying for a management position. The interview process was fairly easy. I was interviewed by my store manager, the AA assistant manager, and the district manager. The district manager interviewed me by phone after my first interview. It was very relaxed. It was a lengthy process. I didn't here back from them for over a month. That part of the process was the most annoying. Although I kind of knew I had the job (hints), they are advised not to speak of it. Some of the applicants were told during their first interview that they weren't fit for this specific position and they could apply for another position of it became available. The other ones that had a chance were left hanging until the right candidate was chosen. The big reveal happens during a huddle. In my opinion they should have been told ahead of time.
