    It was a group interview. It went really great and for seasonal you have to work for holidays if they ask you. Good thing most seasonal jobs lead to a permanent position offer. The hiring process goes by email so will have to check email to see if position was given or not.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (Trussville, AL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The day after I filled out the application online, i received an email asking me to set up an interview. I chose the date for my interview and then later received an email confirming what I chose. It said to arrive 5 minutes before the scheduled interview time which was 5pm. I got there about 15 minutes before 5pm and went to the customer service counter. I was told to have a seat and wait for the others to arrive and someone would come out to get us. A few other showed up and it made a total of 5 of us. About 10 minutes after 5pm, the store manager called us back to the room and she told us to just find a chair and sit around in a half circle. She started off by having us fill out an availability sheet and told us to be honest about what we could work. After we filled those out, she went over them with us. She told us the pay would be $9 per hour and told us a little about the store. She asked us if we had any questions so we asked questions and she answered. It was a really laid back interview. She asked one question and said she would ask everyone to answer but only ended up asking two people to answer. I wasn't even asked the question. I did make sure that I was vocal and asked a few questions. We were told at the end that if our availability sheet looked good, that we would hear something back. I received an email the next day offering me the job.

    Interview

    Group Interview, with a small group 4-10 people. The Manger that interviewed my group didn't really ask any questions was more so asking if we had any questions and talked about himself a lot.. He asked one to two questions the last five minutes of the hour long interview. Manger made an off handed remark when I was filling out another forum for my time I'm able to work; As a person with essential tremor a neurological disorder that was discloused -

    Interview Questions

    • I felt that it was out of place and rude to make an off hand remark. As once more for the questions there was hardly any asked. Possible at the most two questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Ocala, FL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    To apply, you have to fill out an application on snagajob. I received a call to come in for a group interview. 4 of us sat with the store manager answering a variety of questions. We each took turns answering the same questions, which I found to be redundant because for the most part, everyone answered the same as the first who answered. After passing this interview, you meet with the Assistant Manager, in a private interview, with similar questions. If they feel you're a potential, your references will be called. A few days later, they invite you in for an Orientation, which is considered your first day. There you will fill out paperwork, watch a video and have a quick run thru of the store.

    Interview Questions

    • What should be the result of an employee who steals from the store?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There's no negotiation... Only take the position if you're willing to work minimum hours for a very low pay.
