Application Details

I applied online. 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.

    8-10 people are brought in and interviewed as a group. The manager asks a question, and they go around the table and each person answers. It's very awkward.

    I applied online. 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.
