Personally, I thought the answers were vague and not very helpful. The interview was brief and to the point. This was my first interview

    After getting in touch with a recruiter, she set up an interview day where I met with 3 design managers and 2 senior designers to see which department I would best fit in. It was a very casual, fun interview. You can tell that everyone who works there, loves being there which was nice to see. I chatted with all the designers and went through my portfolio with them; very laid back.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Kohl's in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview with about 6-8 other associates. They would go around the circle and ask three people the same question and then ask the next three a different question. they would ask the question, you would give your response, then they would ask the same question to the next two people. Make sure you can sit where they ask you first, otherwise you will repeat what others have said before you. they will ask if you feel comfortable soliciting credit from customers. As a POS associate they will really want you to be comfortable I'm asking customers for a Kohls credit card.
