    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Kohl's (Lexington, KY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    mostly behavioral questions. Lasted about 30 minutes and there are two recruiters come to interview me. They are pretty relaxed and laid back. They have a interview sheet which have 1 list of questions on there. And they asked every single question on the list.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kohl's (Plainfield, IL).

    Interview

    When I got to the interview, I realized it was going to be a group interview. First, we all filled out our applications and when we were done she called everyone back to a room to sit together at one table. We answered questions one at a time. It was pretty intimidating for me especially because most of the others had prior work experience and their answers were simply better than mine. But a good thing about a group interviews is it gives you time to think about your response to a question, unless you answer first. Just be prepared for a group interview when applying at Khols and practice what you're going to say.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kohl's (Kenosha, WI) in January 2014.

    Interview

    It seemeed legit, ntil I met the person, then I was immediately apprehensive, the way they treat new hires is so terrible, you will go to find out for yourself, but please trust me these people are worse than awful, I have 15 years experience in retail sales, the ONLY reason I ended up here is because I was desperate, it is better to be unemploted than to work for Kohl's.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiation? you are joking right, the worst people I have ever been in contact with in all of my retail experience, avoid this place at all costs.

    Interview

    Easy to complete. Quick quetion done by semi-professional people. I was very nervous as it was my first job, but I did fine. I felt over qualified for the job even though I was still in college. I feel like I could have conducted the interview. I went in personally and came back the next day to interview. Overall, very easy for high school and college kids to get a job.

    Interview

    Group setting. We were there almost an hour and a half. Was asked questions, took tour and explained process of Kohls credit card. I am usually a very nervous person during interviews. This manager and the setting was very relaxed and friendly. Know your answers before you go in. Believe it or not people still say I need a job thats why I am here. I learned my lesson with that when the interview I went to ended after I said that. Disappointed in the pay, not my 1st job. Be honest and think the questions through. Good luck.
