    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Simpsonville, SC).

    Interview

    There was a group interview when I went through the hiring process. It was an interesting format with having the opportunity to hear from other potential employee's points of view. The two managers taking the time to listen to each response stressed that they took the process seriously, and wanted to make the right decision for their store.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to schedule an interview a couple of days later. When I arrived for the interview, I checked in at the customer service desk and sat outside the break room until a manager called me in. The interview process was very easy and relaxed, lasted about 15 minutes. I wore business casual attire and answered all of the questions well. The interviewer seemed enthusiastic and said I did well, but ultimately I did not get an offer. I received an email the next day telling me I did not get the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Saint Louis, MO) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very casual and stress free. Not scripted questions, but a conversation that helped us
    both determine if it would be a good fit. General questions about benefits were known. I would have preferred more specifics regarding benefits, such as health care costs. The interview ended on a positive note. Kohls works through the process in a timely fashion, that is appreciated.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Stafford, VA).

    Interview

    Applied and got an interview in under an hour, two part interview, done in the same day, first with store manager second with higher level manager. Really easy, I did tell them that I was probably leaving for school at the end of the summer, they apparently forgot when it came for my orientation, because I was accused of lying that I was leaving, they were upset that I was leaving in 4 months already, had a bad feeling about the company from the start, but needed the job. I'm quitting just 2 months into my employment at this store. I do not recommend this Kohls.

    Interview

    Did not get a chance to interview. I walked in and was told by the manager in and was told that they were only hiring permanent employees and not seasonal. Complete waste of time.
