    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Northridge, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (Northridge, CA).

    Interview

    They asked me to arrive the typical 10 minutes before the interview to fill out some basic paperwork. Once I arrived there, the interviewer asked me if I have finish the paperwork and I explained how I just arrived before the time requested and started the paperwork. Once I finished all the paperwork, we went to the back to her office and she asked me a couple of questions. She asked me if I was going to school three times, even though I told her no. While I was answering one of her questions, she filled out her paperwork without listening to me and asked if I had any questions. I asked her one question as if I was hired, what would be my typical day here. She answered my question while she showed me all her notes and I saw that I was not getting the job and she really did not care about my answers, since she left some spots blank. Overall, I repeated myself multiple times with her repetitive questions and did not have a good experience.

    Interview

    I applied online to Kohl's and received and email the next day scheduling my interview for the next week. I arrived 10 minutes early to my interview and the floor supervisor took me back first. she was super nice and wanted me to be comfortable. She mainly asked me about my previous job and why I wanted to work for Kohl's. She asked some situational questions too like what I would do if I needed to help two customers at a time. She really liked me, so she told me to wait for the assistant store manager to interview me as well. The assistant store manager was super nice too and pretty much asked me the same questions as the supervisor. I got my offer letter the next day offering me the job.

    Interview

    It took around 20 minutes and was a one-on-one interview. My interviewer was very kind and laid back. Maybe too much because she burped during the interview lol. She was very apologetic about it though. she was good at dealing with me being awkward and quiet at times.

    Interview

    Thanks for wasting my time! I waited 2 weeks for the unprofessional interview. I got there ON TIME only to have to wait 20 minutes for a dumb idiot man to come from the back and read interview questions off a piece of paper. He was rude and acted like he didn't even know what to do. None of the other employees were friendly or helpful. I will never shop or apply to work at this unprofessional kohls again!!!!
