    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received a phone call a week later from the manager. I went in for the interview the next day and it was a group interview, which was fine by me. It was about ten people altogether, each person took a turn answering a question, starting with a new person each time. They asked the usual "Why do you want to work here?" questions. After the interview they called us one by one to talk, four days later I received a letter saying I wasn't qualified to unpack clothes, stock shelves and clean the dressing rooms.

    Interview Questions
    • The difficult questions for me were the behavioral ones about previous employers and co-workers because this was my first official interview.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Kohl's in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online through Snagajob and about a week later, I was called to schedule an interview the following Monday. I showed up for my 4 PM interview around 3:50 PM and waited around with about 7 other interviewees. The interviewer came out and got us exactly at 4 and we gathered around a large table in a room near the customer service desk. We went around the table, introducing ourselves. The way the questioning works is... the interviewer asks a question and the first three people answer. Then, he/she asks a different question and the second group of three people answer. This continues until each person has answered about 3 questions. Some of the questions my interviewer asked were: How would you describe a satisfied customer? Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a coworker. What would you do if you saw a customer stealing an item? I was pretty nervous because I have never had an interview before and was not sure what to expect but apparently I did well because I got a call 8 days later to come in for orientation the next day. I took the job because I am a college student and I need a little income to pay for tuition.

    There was no negotiation because it is a seasonal part-time position. The pay is $7.57 per hour. My manager said there will be 20 people hired to continue working for Kohl's after the holidays end.
