    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Kohl's in March 2011.

    The first interview was on campus. They asked the basic questions about personality and work ethic. The recruiter was very nice and welcoming. Then I was invited to Milwaukee for an entire day of interviews. They did a one on one interview and then a group/panel interview where we had to discuss about whether to execute on a new marketing campaign. The day was long but a great experience overall.
