    Took about two days to get interview. Minimum wage starting out. Truck unload hours were 5am-10am. Retail varied. Still waiting to hear back from them. Said she had to run background check, check references and would let me know either by phone call if they proceeded to continue further or my letter if they declined.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The day after I filled out the application, I was called in for an interview. When I got there I was asked to fill out a second application and give some additional information, then me and my group were called in to do a group interview. We were asked group questions and then given individual questions.Most were very typical of an interview (i.e. What does good customer service look like to you?) and then the interviewer invited questions about pay, raises, and scheduling, which was nice as I think many people feel uncomfortable asking about that in the initial interview.

    The pay was only 7.45 and hour and they wouldn't let me haggle for higher pay. They claimed they do raises but employees said the raises were a joke and basically just a cost-of-living adjustment.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kohl's in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through Snagjob and then was called two days later for an interview. It was a group interview and I was really nervous but the person interviewing us (head of customer service) was really nice. There were about 12 people, including myself there. During the interview we were asked about 4 questions and it was pretty relaxed. She went over our applications and let some of us go. I was the first round of people to go which I'm not sure if that's good or bad. And was told I am going to be called in a week.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    It is a group interview, so the interviewer asks one question and goes around the room to ask the same question. He does not always choose the same person to ask first, so be prepared to answer first at least once. The questions were relatively easy, mainly based on past experiences and different situations.

    Interview Questions
    • What is great customer service?   Answer Question
    • Describe an overwhelming experience and how you handled it.   Answer Question
    • Describe a time when your supervisor told you something you didn't agree with and what you did about it.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview, followed by a final round at company headquarters. Process took about a week. Group interview at final interview day seemed to carry a lot of weight. Given a case study at campus interview and then most behavioral and fit questions. Did not feel that anything was too technical they just want to get a feel for the applicants thought process.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    First there was a group interview and then we had one on one, basic retail interview questions. The one confusing part was then they hired everyone in the group interview, almost like they had planned to at the beginning but had to go through protocol, taking time away from everyone.

    There was no negotiation, they offered hourly wage at minimum wage at the time.
