    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kohl's (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    One on campus interview. Then invited to Milwaukee to interview with 3 people in a row. Interviewers varied in title but were mostly managers/leads. A nice hotel was provided and transportation was compensated (or flights were provided). All the questions were behavioral and there were never any technical. There was also dinner provided the night prior to the interviews where you could talk with current employees and other potential interns.

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

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call about a week later for a Group interview, easy questions not intimidating, relax workplace environment. The store manager came in to tell us about the company and his expectations, nothing out of the ordinary. Simply help customers, respond to backup calls, fold clothes, clean fitting rooms out and maintain sales floor.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kohl's in August 2015.

    Interview

    I had an open interview, this is probably something they do often so get there 15min early like I did so the interviewer won't be worn out! Anyway, it was very positive, though I started a bit shaky, I pulled through. The hiring manager was very nice so, just make sure you are talking 50% of the time. I didn't have any work history so if you're like me you will have a giant whole in your app and interview, so make sure you instead have some type of volunteer experience to tell her/him about. I also think you should make them laugh at least once, these people are looking for associates who they can work with and be kind to customers so come out as outgoing and energetic as possible. Last but not least this is not just a time for someone to ask you questions! Besides, this is where you'll be spending your time and labor so you should ask 3-5 questions afterwards. Don't be afraid to write them down beforehand as managers love to see that you are taking part in YOUR interview and owning it. First ask a couple personal questions like "How long have you worked here" and, "What do you love about working here" then ask some questions you might have about the job as a whole like about the hourly pay, the scheduling, and then just nod, smile, and say "I accept!"
