    Interview Details

    After getting in touch with a recruiter, she set up an interview day where I met with 3 design managers and 2 senior designers to see which department I would best fit in. It was a very casual, fun interview. You can tell that everyone who works there, loves being there which was nice to see. I chatted with all the designers and went through my portfolio with them; very laid back.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kohl's in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was connected with a recruiter and completed an online video interview. The second round of interviews was held at their corporate office outside of Milwaukee and consisted of a group dinner, tour of the offices, and presentations on the company. The interview process consisted of three 1:1 interviews as well as a group interview. I enjoyed the entire experience and was impressed with how much goes into their internship program. Our travel, hotel, and food expenses were covered. The three 1:1 interviews consisted of basic behavioral questions and felt as if the interviewers were genuinely trying to get to know me. In the group interview we were given a business situation that we had to analyze and present a solution within 20 minutes.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kohl's in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met with them at a career fair at my school and requested an interview online. I was selected for a first round interview. The questions were behavioral and pretty easy. We were given a case about 10 minutes before our interview that we had to present during the actual interview. The final round was at their headquarters in Milwaukee. They paid for our hotel, travel and food. We were given a tour and interviewed with 3 different people. After the individual interviews we worked with two other interviewees on a case for 5 minutes (the interviewers watched us work together) then we presented our ideas.

    IT Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menomonee Falls, WI
    Application Details

    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 Questions
    • 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
