Loss Prevention Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Federal Way, WA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Federal Way, WA).

Interview

Typical retail application process.

Received a phone screen (informal phone interview) asking about experience.

A month later, received another phone interview with the district manager.

Turns out Loss Prevention Supervisors don't actually "supervise" anything, and are grunts in the field like a regular agent. He made sure I understood that.

I think he sensed my disappointment because I received a rejection notification 10 minutes later.

Advertise your job better next time. You're looking for an Agent, not a supervisor. Been there, done that. Not doing it again.

He also drilled me about my military obligations. Military discrimination is illegal. Tisk tisk.

  • We are a little different. Our supervisors don't actually supervise, they are in the field and do the same work as other Agents. That sounds like it might be a problem for you. Is it?   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Louisville, KY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very short, and sweet. Just had to wait on drug test and background to clear. I sent my resume in and was called for an interview a couple days after submitting it. Met at the store and was not asked a specific set of questions. DLPM did the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call about a week later setting up an interview. Showed up and was given a basic application to fill out. Interview only lasted maybe 10-15 minutes. Pretty laid back, the regional LP person interviewed me. Just described the job and the company and talked about prior experience. Was told that store manager makes final decision and, if selected, I would need to be interviewed again by the manager.

    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Phone interview- was rather brief and to the point. Nothing out of the ordinary. Your basic questions of; "Why this company? Greatest strengths and weaknesses.." ect. As long as you are qualified, honest, and respectful...you should receive at the very least a follow-up interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary requirements not met.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kohl's (Bristol, CT) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. HR called almost immediately after I applied scheduling my interview for 3 days later. I show up at my assigned time, waited, only to have HR come out and tell that it was filled by someone coming back from a leave of absence but to keep checking the website anyway! Seriously, not even a phone call! Never again. NO compassion for applicants

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kohl's (San Francisco, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Basic retail interview process. Applying was a bit different when I applied however that will be changing very soon. Research company first and your location especially for an LP position.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a difficult task. What policies did you use? Who did you involve and why? What was the outcome? What if anything would you do differently next time?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Standard interview questions. They read down a list. Where do you see yourself in 5 years, what is your greatest strength/weakness. If they talk to you like a human, and then go, "oh yea I have to read these standard questions", it is probably going well. Be on time and know the company, ask good questions that are open ended. You want the interviewer to talk, talk, talk.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you deal with [insert difficult situation here].?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offered an amount, but since the hiring manager had already told me I was the best out of all the choices I knew I could ask for more. They had to approve it and I got the number. This is corporate they have to approve everything at a higher level. Just ask, if they can't they will tell you. Make them try, if they offer the job they probably do not have anyone else.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kohl's in November 2012.

    Interview

    I had about six months of loss prevention experience and a year and a half of supervisory experience. I was hired two weeks before Black Friday, and I believe that this is the only reason I got the job. My boss, the district loss prevention manager, had me do a phone interview that lasted about five minutes long. All he asked me was about my previous work experience and if I knew how to do exception reports and investigate internals. He hired me right on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. He seemed to be in a rush and just needed someone to start ASAP for the holidays.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I am not good at negotiating, so I didn't even try. I know I probably could have gotten a higher pay rate if I tried, so I would say just ask.
