    Interview Details

    Three steps, first met with a campus manager at a career fair, then scheduled an interview with some store managers, and then had a final interview with some district managers at a store. All interviews were complex, they took good notes and really were looking to find the right person for the job. They aren't joking around!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got called the same day to schedule an interview. I scheduled an interview for the following Thursday. It was a group interview (all college students, me being the only one with no work experience) with a manager leading the interview and another taking notes on our responses. Overall the interview was fairly easy. The interviewer asked simple questions and it went well. Now I'm just waiting to hear if I got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    I applied Nov 10th 2014 and was called to set up an interview two days later. Although it was a seasonal position this interview was surprisingly solo and not group. It was probably the easiest interview I've ever been to.
    Also, to my surprise it was only one interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    The interview was with a group of 9 or so people. The interviewer asked each person a question. Lasted about an hour and a half. The interview was a bit awkward as I was the only person under the age of 20. Interviewer asked questions about how is being positive important in the workplace and kind of showed favoritism toward one person.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a called about a week later from a lady who told me my interview time and date. Showed up and there was 4 other applicants also. It was a group interview, he sat us at a table with a pen and paper for each of us asking our availability. He just went around the table asking questions and he did most of the talking. Store manager was really nice, interview was easy. When he was finished talking he called each of us to his office one by one to hand him our paper and to ask personal questions. So far the best interview experience I've had.
