Sales Associate Interview
I applied in-person – interviewed at Kohl's.
Interview process was very easy, it was during a job fair so after we passed the background check we were basically hired immediately. Hired as seasonal during November then was kept for part time sales associate.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Kohl's (Woodbury, MN) in May 2015.
I went to the customer service desk, and they told me where to wait for the interview. It was a group interview with 5 other girls. The assistant manager had us fill out a packet of forms before we started the interview. He first had us say our names and why we chose Kohl's. Then he asked us several more questions that I had been prepared for because of this site! We went around the table taking turns answering the same questions, but he started first with different people so it was fair. After that he called me back first to talk one on one with him. He just basically asked if I had any questions, what department I would like to work in and why, and if I would be able to handle the business of weekends. I would say dress up business. I kept smiling and made eye contact with the interviewer and with whoever was talking. This was my first interview ever, but it went really well because I was prepared, well dressed, and appeared confident and professional during the interview.

I applied through other source. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Kohl's (Roseville, MN) in March 2015.
Multiple applicants were interviewed simultaneously. Very casual, joking atmosphere. Interviewees wore a range of outfits from casual jeans and t-shirts to business casual to business formal. Interviewed with the sales manager. One interview and then received a phone call asking if still interested in the position. Told to come to orientation. At the interview was asked about availability but at the time of accepting the position neither the number of hours or approximate schedule were discussed. Upon arriving at the orientation was handed a schedule starting the next day to work 8 out of the 10 next days. Had to go back in later to work out the schedule around previous commitments made before there was a job offer.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Kohl's (Atlanta, GA) in February 2015.
I had an interview with the store manager. At the end of the interview he told me that he was doing interviews so he can find a replacement for the seasonals and he was doing interviews that whole week. I never heard from Kohls after that. I know he was telling the truth because he had an interview before and after me.

I applied in-person – interviewed at Kohl's in November 2014.
I applied on an online job board, submitted my resume and application. The next day, my local Kohls called me to set up a time for a interview. Attended the group interview, which went well, and we were told they would do a background check and then call us to let us know. In about a week's time, I received the call back and was offered a position and set up a time to come in for orientation!

very quick and friendy, no pressure at all. My question were like...why do you think you can be a good sale associate, what does a good sale associate should have? Did you shopping at Kohl's before

I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's.
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.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Kohl's in October 2014.
Got an initial phone call to schedule interview. The day of the interview, I was surprised it was a small group interview with me and another person. We sat with the Supervisor and the Assistant Manager and the Assistant Manager asked us questions like why we wanted to work here and behavioral questions to get a gauge of our work ethic.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Kohl's (Hamilton, NJ) in October 2014.
I did an application and then probably two weeks later they called me in for a group interview. The guy was very nice, told us all about the company. Then we went around the room and introduced ourselve. After he asked everyone three situation questions. Basically everyone's answers were similar. And after the questions we asked him a few questions that we wanted to know. At the end we filled out some paper work. About a week later then called me with an offer and I have orientation in a week.
