Application Details

I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at Kohl's.

Interview Details

Phone interview was a little odd. Recruiter wanted names of others that she could recruit which didn't make sense. Online assessment included 20 math story problems that were irrelevant for the job.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kohl's in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    What would your Present boss say about you? They questioned all about financials like volume of previous stores, number of employees, number of assistant managers, sales numbers for day after Thanksgiving. Also wanted to know if you can handle non-performance problems with associates and managers. They asked mostly situational questions like what would you do if you ran out of an advertised item.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Kohl's in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I received the opportunity to interview with Kohl's by attending an on-campus career fair. I spoke with one of the recruiters and she offered me an interview. I thought the interview went ok considering it was my first real interview. It was very laid back and conversational. I could have answered a few questions more thoroughly, but overall, I think the interviewer was pleased with my responses. Afterward, it took about two weeks for them to send a response. i did not get another interview, but it was a good experience.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kohl's in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the recruiter to set up an interview. It was a three step interview process that included two phone interviews with HR recruiters and one DM interview with general behavioral based questions. I knew going in to the interview that they didn't have immediate openings available but I have heard great things about the company from employees so I wanted to get the experience to meet with them. Everyone that I have dealt with was pleasant and it seems like a great place to work. Growth however is minimal until they expand further in our area.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted and screened via telephone. Once that was completed I was set up for a one on noe intervirew with an HR rep that was doing interviews in my area at a local hotel. The interviewer was over one hour late. He seemed bored and not very personal. He suggested that I apply at other retailers. a total turn off due to how unprofessional the interview went. a total waste of time
