    Interview Details

    very child like, didn't even ask for my resume.
    I filled out application and turned into store. Next day got a date for an interview. Went into the interview, I was smarter than the interviewer who is the store manager. Didn't ask pertinent questions.
    Didn't offer anything about the store, the type of employee for the type of job being hired for. Hired and told to wait for Orientation date, which was 2 weeks later.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    Initial interviews here are like corralling cattle. After working here for a time I realized they did this several times a week because they couldn't hang on to their employees. I went through 2 rounds of interviews - on initial and then a return interview for my specific supervisory position. This is a big company and everything they do is formulated.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kohl's in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I completed an application online and was contacted for an interview about a week later. I was not involved in a group interview, which I'm seeing is what most people experience. I was asked the basics: Do you have retail experience? Do you have a problem soliciting credit? Tell me about a bad customer experience and how you turned it around. Do you have issues being on time?

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They state the starting pay, which was above minimum wage. This was part-time for me, so I was fine with it.

    It was a basic cattle call...... they just were looking for bodies for Christmas. No real interview... just filled out papers and you were hired...... very weird They decided where to put you and then told you when to start. Seems like its a no brainer to get hired at Kohls

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    First we had to fill out a basic job application. Then we had the group interview of about 7 people. We sat around a large table with the hiring manager who asked questions starting with a different person each time. It was a fun upbeat atmosphere. A couple of questions were about our personal Kohls experience- did we have a Kohls Card and did we have a Rewards Card. It seemed like he was trying to somewhat sell the people who didn't have a charge card on why they should get one. Other questions were I think trying to figure out our personality types - what type of tree would you be and why, for example. At the end he selected 2 of us to select team members from the group. Then each team had to "sell" something random from a group of objects on the table. Overall it wasn't a bad experience. There were several group interviews that day and I see the ad for positions at that particular store is still up, so I don't know how many people they need for one store, so it seems like they might be selecting maybe a few out the groups.

    Interview Questions
    • What type of tree would you be and why?   Answer Question
    • Tell me a little about yourself including if you have a Kohls card or Rewards card, a situation when you dealt with conflict and what you did to resolve it, and what position you would be most interested in at Kohls.   Answer Question
