    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Kohler.

    Interview Details

    I applied to a co-op position for Kohler online and received a response about two months later. Interview was scheduled about 3 weeks later. It was a panel interview over webcam with eight managers. They admitted that it was only their second holding an interview over webcam and it was obvious. There were a good amount of "could you repeat that?" phrases on both ends. I heard back from them about 3 weeks later.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kohler.

    Interview Details

    First communication at university job fair. Had on campus-interview and then a personality test followed by an on-site interview at Kohler. Overall the interview process was pretty standard. Not overly difficult questions. The visit to Kohler is an interesting one, you get to see the history, eat at one of their lodges, and see the company itself. Overall the recruiting experience was a pleasant one.

    Hospitality Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Kohler, WI
    Anonymous Employee in Kohler, WI
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Kohler in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Kohler came to our career fair. Applied online for internship position. Got interview--interviewed one-on-one with recruiter. She was extremely nice, informative, and had a great sense of humor. After the interview, she called me a couple weeks later and told me about the second round of interviews.

    Second round was onsite--I got a group tour along with a number of other candidates. After the tour, we had a 6 on 6 panel interview. Seemed intimidating at first but the Kohler workers had a great sense of humor and lightened the mood. They asked us questions about leadership, personal experience in service, why we liked Kohler, etc. The interview was fair, friendly, and very helpful.

    Got an offer from Kohler about three weeks after the second round interview--I'm sure the holiday season delayed the process by a few days to a week.

    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Kohler.

    Interview Details

    The process took quite a long time and had a number of steps. The last step was to come in for an in person interview with about five individuals. I enjoyed meeting everyone there and I think that they did a good job once you actually got to work with someone at the company. They outsource their first round interviews to a third party, be prepared to repeat yourself more than once as my recruiter had no idea what she was asking. Overall, other than the first step, the process went pretty smooth. It also helps if you have other offers as they will speed things up for you.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Kohler in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume online. Had a phone interview that consisted of basic questions. Then got a 2nd phone interview with local HR to to determine if you are a good fit for Kohler. They then determine if you are a better fit by requesting you to take an online assesment test, which you cant pass or fail it just determines if you would fit in their particular system. If you get past those few phases, you get an onsite interview. You may interview with 3 or 4 people then with typical questions about your employment history and a tour of the facility. Then the ball is in their court and you sit back and wait the results.

    Interview Questions
    • There are none. They dont ask trick questions or anything of the sort. You have either had experience about the questions they ask or you haven't. Just prepare and answer honestly.   Answer Question

    Kehler’s event is pretty awesome. They did not have the presentation, but the lunch meeting and the director’s introduction of Kehler and her career experience made me feel more engaging.
