    You get to work in many different areas, they bring or make food, everyone is friendly and it just feels like family.


    There are days when you will have the rudest customers and they will try to ruin your mood and bring you down with them. Don't let them, just kill them with kindness, it really makes them mad then but you feel awesome because you done your job.

    I applied online – interviewed at Kohl's.


    I applied for the jobs on online. Part (2) was the personality test. A few days later I called in for a interview. I was advised they had other applicants and I would hear from the Hiring Manager at a later time. Two days later I was called with a job offer.
