    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hingham, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kohl's (Hingham, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It took about a week to get an interview. I applied on Tuesday and called the following Tuesday to see how the progress was going. Was told to come in Thursday for a group interview, but never given a time. Had to call the next day and ask for the time. I arrived 30 minutes prior to the interview, just incase I had to fill out anything (which I didn't.) When I got there, I was surprised that it was just a one on one interview because the manager told me she liked doing group interviews. The lady was super friendly and basically asked a lot of the same questions that are already on Glassdoor and about my past experience. After the interview she told me she would give me a call that night, the next day because she still had other applicants to interview (Which i believed her because there was someone waiting outside when I was finished) I still haven't heard from her, so I don't know if they're still looking things over or if they already hired someone. Which I don't mind because I have other places to apply too.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kohl's (Lapeer, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview had a very friendly atmosphere and you were able to joke around while giving out your replies. It was a group interview, so the two interviewers would go around the room and pick people to answer some questions. I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be, and I felt like I could be myself.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Kohl's (Rockford, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through snagajob.com and they called me about two days later and offered me an interview. They did tell me it was a group interview and I was fine with that. There was only three of us including myself so that eased the nervousness a little. But they gave easy questions but I think they were really focusing on availability for the position you wanted and your availability.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Kohl's (Kissimmee, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was supposed to be a group interview but none of the other applicants showed up. He just asked me questions about my availability, instead of asking typical questions like what are my strengths and weaknesses he just stated different situations and how would I handle it. Interview was about an hour

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Kohl's (Kansas City, MO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on the first of the month, and then got a call for an interview roughly a week and a half later. I had to wait to interview because the store manager was out of town. Because I used Snagajob, I had to fill out a paper application once I got to the store. My recommendation would be to apply on paper in the first place. Overall, the interview was really quick and painless. I had a 1 on 1 interview with simple questions. It seemed like the person interviewing me was rating me on a form as I answered the questions. After that, I had to sign some paperwork for a background check and drug test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kohl's (Bakersfield, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied via snagajob on Friday & got a call for an interview on Sunday. Went in on Monday and anwsered questions about customer service. The manager asked if I was interested in working the fitting rooms & I said yes. Availability is a very important factor too, you need to be available. I filled out some paperwork & was told I would get a call back for orientation once eveyone who had applied passed their drug test and background check. If not I would be expecting a letter in the mail if I was not hired. I've been waiting for a week & a half now, almost two. I've called two times to keep in touch. I hope to get called in soon!!! It was a very easy interview.
