Intern Interview

Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Kohl's in February 2014.

Interview Details – Met recruiter at college career fair and was offered an interview for only a few days later. Interviewers were very nice and easy to converse with. Questions were read from a sheet of paper. Questions were expected, except all had a little twist than what I had prepared, therefore it was just slightly more difficult than expected.

Interview Question – Name a time you did not step up to become a leader.   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern
Athens, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Kohl's in September 2013.

Interview Details – I met them at a career fair at my school, passed on my resume, and then waited. Within about a week I got a call and an email asking me to interview. It was two rounds of interviews, with the first being strictly behavioral, and the second interview being half behavioral and then being more of a "how would you handle this situation" style.

Interview Question – My most difficult question came when they asked me to describe a time that I had failed and what I learned from it - not because I'd never failed, but because I hadn't had anything major that I'd failed at outside of school.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiating for internship offers.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Kohl's.

Interview Details – Went to a campus recruiting event on a whim and met a few alumni who now worked for Kohl's. They were nice enough and after networking for awhile, I was asked to interview at the campus career center the next day. Several other students were picked as well and we were interviewed one-on-one in 30 minute intervals. The recruiter was pleasant and it definitely felt like a conversation, which was helpful. During the interview and despite my polished answers, it seemed as though they could tell I didn't really care much for retail or the job. We actually had an open and frank discussion towards the end about my career goals and all that jazz. He was very understanding and actually directed me to recruiters and contacts in other companies I was more interested in! Having passed the behavioral interview decently - I think if I had really wanted the job, I probably would have gotten it.

Interview Question – The most difficult question was "Why do you want to work in the retail industry?"   View Answer

Interviewed at Kohl's

Interview Details – Process is a three part process - step one is a one-on-one with a recruiter or campus liaison. The questions are functional (pretty simple) and it should only take about 30 min. Be prepared and bring your resume - even though they have it, it helps to look ready.

Interview Question – When did you make a mistake that had a large cost and how did you learn from it?   Answer Question
