During the interview he explained what kind of job you would be doing, dress code, and what the next steps would be. The group was small about 6(7 if you include me) and it seemd laid back.

    User Experience Lab Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kohl's (Milpitas, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with one of the recruiters. He was very nice; he told me about the company and asked me about my background. I had a great interview overall, but as all the other corporate interview posts below me will tell you, I never received a call back. I was told that I would hear back from them about the position after the recruiter said I was a great fit for the role...but....crickets. I sent a follow-up email but didn't hear back.

    Granted, it's a large company and I'm pretty sure small roles like this get thrown under the table until they are really, really needed, but come on Kohls...don't waste my time. It's incredibly unprofessional to keep disappearing on candidates. At least send an automated message/email saying that you've decided to discontinue the position or you've found another candidate or whatever the case may be....not cool. Not cool.

    Group interview. Asks a lot of scenario based questions. They start by walking the group from the front of the store to the back to see if anyone naturally talks to customers, if they talk a lot, etc.
    A lot of paperwork is completed during the interview. Sometimes, you have to talk over other interviewees to get to answer any questions. Some questions are directed to the group, and some to individuals.

    The interview was very simple, it probably took if too much 20 minutes, I wasn't feeling nervous at all because the supervisors are so awesome. I came in 10 minutes earlier, I was called to an office and talked to one of the supervisors, her name was Mary Jane, awesome lady very friendly, she asked me about me, about my past experience with retail stores, my thoughts about what it means to give good customer service, questions about how I responded to difficult situations in the past, she asked me about my availability of course, and I noticed they like to see you open minded to be flexible, and possibly change roles or activities around the store. But in general they seem to be very stable.
