    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in September 2017 and got an e-mail to schedule an interview 3 days later. The HR rep was 10 minutes late but was very friendly and since I had no retail experience, she asked me mostly about school and where in the store I would like to work. She ignored my answer and put me in another department because that is where I was needed most. She offered me a job ($9 an hour) on the spot but told me they hire everyone for seasonal. It was a one on one interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Plaistow, NH) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online this past Friday and received an email from Kohls two hours later to schedule a interview. I was able to get a time for today. My interview was at one, I arrived ten minutes early and checked in at the service desk. My interview started at about 1:05 the first part was filling out a sheet listing my availability to work. The area supervisor was very friendly and helpful as we went through the interview questions, I am glad I googled possible questions the night before and what to expect at a Kohls interview, it definitely helped at the end of the interview I was offered the job and told that they would be sending me another email so I can set up my Orientation. Very excited.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kohl's in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email a couple days later instructing me to schedule an interview. Was a group interview - about 7 other people in the group with me. The store manager talked to us, explained what they were looking for, gave each of us an availability sheet to fill out, then went one by one asking questions. The interview lasted an hour, and each of us were only asked 3 questions. I received an email a day later saying I got the job.

    It was an easy interview overall, very laid back. I'm normally a nervous wreck at interviews, however I felt comfortable at this one.
