    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with HR to discuss the position and my qualifications. Received a call the next week to say they weren't interested in interviewing me any further. Said the reason was they didn't believe my analysis/excel skills were what they were looking for. My prior positions were all Excel reporting, modeling, and analysis so I'm not sure what they were talking about.

    Manager In Training Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kohl's in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very negative. There were two women and one of them did not seem interested in me at all. She seemed to force my answers to be short when she would look down at her paper and start saying her next question. I did not feel comfortable during the interview and she made me just want to walk out the door. She was not a very good interviewer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kohl's (Evans, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    This was my first job interview ever, so I do not feel I was adequately prepared however all of the questions were fair. I walked in to customer service and told them I was here for an interview then the manager came and invited me to his office where he asked me a series of questions.

    Interview Questions

    • The one question that really stumped me (though I know employers ask it a lot) was "Name one time a coworker did something unethical and how did you handle it?"

      He also asked
      How do you feel about getting people to sign up for their credit card? On a scale of 1-10 how much incentive do you have?

    Store Management Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Orlando, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter and the next day I got an email to do the first interview online through HireVue. A few days later, I was scheduled for a second interview which was in person where there were two recruiters who asked fairly simple questions about yourself and Kohl's. It went well, however, one interviewer started asking irrelevant questions which I think messed it up for me in the end.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Branford, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I arrived 5 minutes before my schedule interview. I waited less than 5 minutes for the assistant manager. We went into a small room. I was basically asked about my availability and was read off questions from a paper she had. Next the manager came in and asked me more questions from another paper. Both managers were super nice and made me feel comfortable. I was told I had the job at the end of the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Canton, CT).

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy. I had an interview with the manager within a few days of applying. He asked me very basic questions about how I solve problems, and manage my time for projects. The thing I like about Kohl's is that they're more interested in your personality, and how you treat customers, opposed to how much knowledge you have in retail.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you name a time you were given a task with little, or no instruction? How did you handle it?   Answer Question

    You can apply either online or by turning in an application. I met with the manager personally, then they called me and asked me if they could schedule me for an interview.

The people who were most cheerful, open and talkative were hired within days of the initial interview.
