    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kohl's in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I thought this was a joke. I applied online and was contacted within 24 hours. Went to a fairly simple sit down interview and literally up and left after I heard the starting pay was 7.55/hr.Was basically offered a job by simply applying.

     I was looking for a little part-time gig for the holidays. I don't expect to get rich in a retail job, but minimum wage for a experience and a degree is pathetic. I answered some generic questions and when we got to the part on salary I literally laughed and said thank you, that'll be all and walked out.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Tell me a time you gave great customer service... all the generic questions. For minimum wage, i dont know why they even bother   View Answer

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a current employee of Kohl's. I received an email from the recruiter with a link to a video interview. You have 7 days to complete the interview.

    Interview Details

    Very simple process. I was an internal candidate so there was an interview with the District Manager and then a corporate visual director via phone. It was very straight forward and helped that I was familiar with the District Manager as well as having a great relationship with my Store Manager who shared nothing but praise for my work. Make friends with your managers and gain their support.
