    Freight Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    So, the job post was for the freight Associate (early morning) position. Typically if you see a post like that, that's exactly what you think they'd require of you. But nope, not this job. It took about a couple weeks before I got the interview email to come in for an interview. I was excited and nerve wrecked all at once. Arranged for my son to be watched, made sure I was at the interview early and ready to go. They had me Sign all the papers about my personal info and Availability that I ALREADY completed electronically when I applied for the job. Finally, I got called in by a manager I'm guessing. She sits down and looks at my paperwork and her face immediately shift. I knew something was wrong. She then says to me, " So, are these the only hours you're available?" And I told her it was (it was all early morning shifts I put as my Availability). She says, "Well the freight truck only comes about once or twice a week, if at all. We require all our employees to work a 6:30pm-11pm shift as well." I was PISSED!! Their job posting is EXTREMELY misleading. I wouldn't have wasted my time applying if the primary position they applied for wasn't the actual position I'd get. What's the point in having a freight position available if there hardly is a freight job to do?! That's so stupid!!! Moral of my review: Call them and confirm what position they are hiring for and what hours they require before you waste your time like I did.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Check in at customer service. Walk back to office for interview. 15 min maybe.

    I didn't get the job in beauty, they use that as bait to get more cashiers and will choose favorites for the preferred jobs.

    I had to accept the job in customer service.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Joint interview. No work related questions, more about how we run our daily lives to understand how we work with others in public. Asked about our reasoning for wanting to work retail but no questions that were expected in a normal interview. It was like a friendly dinner with a stranger.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a group interview with about 6 other candidates. They just went in a circle asking the same questions to each person. Very informal and a bit unprofessional. Most people just answered "I agree to what the last person said."
