Business Analyst Intern Interview

Business Analyst Intern
Menomonee Falls, WI

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kohl's in October 2012.

Interview Details – Had an initial phone interview that had very basic questions inquiring about my background and experiences. Then about a week later recieved a call requesting that I travel to Menomonee (at their expense), to interview in person. Had 3 one-on-one interviews that were about 15-20 minutes each and very informal. Then had a group interview with 4 other candidates. The group interview was not challenging at all, and once again very informal. You can tell they are looking for the "fit" with the culture, as opposed to the smartest person in the room which certainly helps the social culture of the headquarters be that much better.

Interview Question – Tell me about the time when you were most disappointed in yourself.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable, but very competitive offer.

IT Intern Interview

IT Intern
Menomonee Falls, WI

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Kohl's in November 2013.

Interview Details – There are three 30 minute interviews with the IT department. The interview process was very easy they ask you about 18 situational questions. The questions all revolve around your experiences and how well you work in teams. They are looking for people who work well in teams and are able to work with people they may not get along with. They do not ask any technical questions and they will tell you that up front.

I was shocked at how quickly they got back to me with an offer. I interviewed on Monday and Tuesday morning I received a call with the offer.

Interview Question – Make sure you have lots of examples of how you worked in groups. The question I was not prepared for was " Give a situation in which you used a theory to develop a solution and then how did they situation turn out."   View Answer

Web Merchandise Presentation Specialist Interview

Web Merchandise Presentation Specialist
Menomonee Falls, WI

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Kohl's.

Interview Details – I got hired on as a temp through a staffing agency for a 3 month contract. The interview process was very fast. I got a call to do a phone screening on a Wednesday, got asked to come in for in-person interviews on that Friday and was offered the position on Saturday via phone call. I interviewed with three people from the team for around 20 minutes each. I started the next week. I am sure the rapidity of the process was because it was for a temp position. Many associates at the corporate office start as temps before they become permanent.

Interview Question – What are you looking for in this temp position?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – For a temp position there wasn't any negotiation. I did get contacted by two different staffing agencies for the same position and one paid a dollar more and hour than the other so of course I went with the higher amount.
