Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2015.

Interview

The interview was very simple, it probably took if too much 20 minutes, I wasn't feeling nervous at all because the supervisors are so awesome. I came in 10 minutes earlier, I was called to an office and talked to one of the supervisors, her name was Mary Jane, awesome lady very friendly, she asked me about me, about my past experience with retail stores, my thoughts about what it means to give good customer service, questions about how I responded to difficult situations in the past, she asked me about my availability of course, and I noticed they like to see you open minded to be flexible, and possibly change roles or activities around the store. But in general they seem to be very stable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Baltimore, MD) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through a website. An invitation to a group interview was emailed to me a week later. Attended a group interview (we were 4 applicants) with two managers at a Kohl's store. The hiring process from application to orientation day took around 4 weeks. This is because after accepting the offer and filling out a couple of forms online, a background check was conducted and the results took 2 weeks to come in. Orientation day was very laid back. It included a computer-based introduction to the company, a visit to the store and some paperwork to fill out.

    The power was out when I arrived to my interview so the associate standing outside give me two options: Reschedule or have the interview outside. I chose to have the interview outside. We were interrupted a few times by customers asking if the store was open, which it wasn't.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's in November 2013.

    Interview

    Most important thing is to be able to pass a background check. Most people who do not get hired is because they fail the background check. One on one interview, very basic.

    Interview Questions

    • The main question asked is What is great customer service? and What's the most important thing you can do to prevent theft? Smile and say hi!!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was hired for seasonal, kind of take it or leave it.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Kohl's in November 2010.

    Interview

    Filled out an application online at Snagajob. They called back a couple of days later asking me to setup an interview. The interview was a group interview with about a dozen people in front of two assistant managers. It was a very laid back interview, and as long as you're a talker and can come up with stories, you'll pass right through. The questions were mainly "what if" or "what would you do" in certain situations. You only have to answer first once, other times someone else will be going before you, and it just goes around the circle for each person to answer the same question. All in all it lasted about an hour and was easy, fun, and friendly. A couple days later I was called and asked if I'd like to take the job, and I obviously accepted. Orientation was scheduled the following week, which was a few hours long (paid), and consisted of watching videos and going over policies/paperwork with a few other new hirees. There's even some fun get up & go activities where you get to meet other associates and ask them questions. Don't take it as something you "have" to do - just have fun with it and consider it a way to meet your new coworkers!
