    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I received a call from Kohl's about 2 weeks after applying online. They told me to come in for an interview. I thought it was going to be a group interview after reading all the reviews on GlassDoor. However, my interview was 1-on-1. As I walked in, the manager asked for my availability and asked a few questions including: Tell me about your retail experience, What skills should a sales associate possess, and Is it ever acceptable to be late. I was offered the position on the spot.

    I applied online and two weeks later they called me for an interview. It was a group interview of 6 and I believe 4 out of 6 were hired. The questions were all pretty basic.. and two days later I received an offer.

    *you must consent to drug test*

    Interview Questions: Do you agree with the statement "the customer is always right?" How do you feel about being late to work and/or is it acceptable? Tell me about a time you worked for a stressful job and what did you do to help? Have you ever had an employee not follow the rules and if so what did you do to stop it? ... i'm not sure what the others were but I know one was like what do you do to keep structure in the workplace.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    About a month process - Got invited for an interview, two weeks later, interview process went great. Got asked to come in for a final interview, which was about two weeks after the first interview. Had to complete an assessment that included behavioral assessment about yourself and some statistic problems. Had a great time at the final interview, which included a case study as a group interview that was pretty easy to solve and had to present it to regional VP and district managers. Had one-on-one interview with the regional VP and one of the district managers and I can not stress enough how nice these ladies were. They were amazing ladies.

    Interview was a big group interview. They were clearly desperate because everybody was hired, even people that did not come dressed up. Very little training, basically put you to work soon after.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview, asked about four questions and one of them was 'who is your idol.' It was easy, I felt confident. She called me by my name the whole time.

    I left after being the first one called back. She said she would contact me. I waited a week, nothing yet. So I called them. Turns out they told me if they didn't let me stay, I wasn't hired, but they'd 'keep me on file.'

    What a bunch of bull, right?
