    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was emailed to set up an interview time. It was a group interview, but we didn't answer any questions. Just filled out paperwork of our availability. Then the hiring manager took us aside and confirmed with us one on one about our availability and went over the pay rate we would be hired at. A few days later I got an email with some more forms to fill out involving background check and drug test consent forms. I never heard back from them after sending in the forms.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (Franklin, IN) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was exactly on time. But then I was kept waiting until two other potential new hires arrived for a group interview. It was FIFTEEN MINUTES before the manager started the interview. Before it started, a different manager approached me and started to sell me a credit card. What? She knew I was there for an interview but kept shoving the credit card down my throat. What a turn off! I wasn't interested, I politely let her know, but she kept pushing it.

    Only one of the other two people bothered to show up for the interview. I decided to be honest: I did not want to work nights and I didn't mind Saturday and the occasional Sunday. The manager stated that she had morning openings. I didn't think it was a big deal--I was applying for part-time work.

    Even though I nailed the interview, I guess she didn't like that I would prefer not to work in the middle of the night when they are open 24 hours before Christmas. TWENTY FOUR HOURS. Who the heck needs to shop at Kohl's in the middle of the night?

    No one.

    From being bombarded with credit card info to the wait before the interview to being told they could use someone with my hours and then apparently NOT needing morning people (I have great past experience), I would not recommend applying here. If this is the way they treat someone applying, what do they do to people who actually work there?!?!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Menomonee Falls, WI).

    Interview

    Multiple group Interviews with managers and directors. Process went fairly quickly and the response was within a week as to the next steps. It was a little intimidating going to the corporate offices as there are over 4500 people there, but the entire process went smoothly.
