Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Seasonal Sales Associate
San Jose, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Kohl's in October 2013.

Interview Details – The questions were pretty much standard for any job. What is your background, what in your background prepares you for this job, what would you do in particular situations (like customer can't find what he/she is looking for, customer wants a discount that isn't available.) There were a few questions about dealing with difficult people and how you have resolved those kinds of situations in the past.

Richmond, VA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kohl's in September 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online at snagajob. The first time I failed the personality test but I just applied again and said that I loved working in teams or whatever and got through. They called me in for an interview. It was a group interview and we all went around the circle and answered in turn. Fortunately I had read glass door before I came in and had prepared answers in advance. I tried to always add something- never just say I think the same as what she said when last in line.

Interview Question – Tell about a time you gave great customer service.   View Answer
