    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    The internship process was standard. I was first asked some behavioral questions, and then I was told about the position and what to expect. All my question were answered. Personally, I thought the answers were vague and not very helpful. The interview was brief and to the point. This was my first interview

    I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    I was called for a group interview. Because, they didn't have enough people for the interview, it was postponed by a week. We pretty much went around the room speaking on why we were the best fit for the job and our skills. We were then asked a series of questions and the person picked to answer first was totally random. We pretty much all had the same answer to the questions and added a little more to them.

    Interview Details

    This was for a new store. They had us in a group interview with about 15 people. They sat us in a room in a hotel with 2 managers I believe. They would ask a question and randomly ask one of us to answer the question. They would also present us scenarios and ask us for "a time when you exhibited" so and so. Be prepared to present a sales pitch for an in-store credit card.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Kohl's in October 2014.

    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. The video interview had 5 questions that you record yourself answering. After that you go to Milwaukee for two days of in-person interview and then they extend offers.

    Seasonal Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kohl's in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    They called me for a group interview, when I showed up there was about 11 other people there. We were taken into a room and sat on chairs in a circle facing the interviewer. (She has now been working for the company for 9 years I believe she said? and she also started off as a seasonal employee). She made all of us introduce ourselves, (when It got to my turn I mentioned things I didn't list in my resume and I also emphasized how I currently own my own online business), then she went around and asked each person a single question, (for example: "why should Kohl's pick you?" "Name a time you had conflict with an employee and resolved it.") before I went into the interview I searched reviews here on Glassdoor also on Yahoo Answers and I visited the companies website to see what they were all about and what they stood for. When the interviewer got to me she asked me, "Why do you wanna work at Kohl's?" and SINCE I had done my researched answered with something along the lines of, "I wanna work at Kohls because I believe in what the company stands for, bringing awareness to breast cancer is important because it is a growing issue here in our country and I like that Kohl's in environmentally friendly, I know that Kohl's recycles and builds energy efficient buildings." She smiled and said, "You did your homework, huh?" and I responded yes :-) Opposed to the other candidates she had asked the same question, they responded with "I am a customer here, I like the environment, blah blah blah." So in short make sure your answers stand out. Also she noticed that the shirt I was wearing was from a line of theirs and even commented on it! (: Afterwards she gave us forms to fill out and as soon as we turned them in we were allowed to leave. Also note that a background check will be performed and if you decline to a drug test they won't even bother with you. Also schedule availability/flexibility goes a long way, especially in seasonal positions! All in all I had a good experience, (this was my second interview ever, 1st one was at Chipotle and it was awful!)

    Kohls Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a call the next day. When I got there the employees were kinda giving me the eye. They seemed to be thrown off by someone wearing a vest. They sent me to the back and there were 10-25 other people sitting in this lobby like area. Allot of them looked like they came in off the street. I was surprised when they called around 15 people to come sit around a table (all for the same job).

    The interviewer didn't even make eye contact with us he spent the whole time looking down at a paper. He asked a question then one by one we had to answer the question. It felt pretty degrading to be honest. The people that turned up ranged from 18 year olds to 50 year olds. Unsurprisingly the older people made the young people look like fools. Honestly felt like we were only there to fill the seat.

    As we leave, the interviewer shakes our hands. This time he only looks at the women and doesn't make eye contact or speak to the men at all. I watched him the entire time, I was the last to leave the room.

    It is the worst interview experience I had ever had up till today. Young people and first timers, stay away especially if you're a guy. Introverts, do yourself a favor and stay away.
