    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in September 2017 and got an e-mail to schedule an interview 3 days later. The HR rep was 10 minutes late but was very friendly and since I had no retail experience, she asked me mostly about school and where in the store I would like to work. She ignored my answer and put me in another department because that is where I was needed most. She offered me a job ($9 an hour) on the spot but told me they hire everyone for seasonal. It was a one on one interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Plaistow, NH) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online this past Friday and received an email from Kohls two hours later to schedule a interview. I was able to get a time for today. My interview was at one, I arrived ten minutes early and checked in at the service desk. My interview started at about 1:05 the first part was filling out a sheet listing my availability to work. The area supervisor was very friendly and helpful as we went through the interview questions, I am glad I googled possible questions the night before and what to expect at a Kohls interview, it definitely helped at the end of the interview I was offered the job and told that they would be sending me another email so I can set up my Orientation. Very excited.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (Redlands, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online in July and got an email to schedule an interview in September. I scheduled my interview in the next 4 days at 2pm. The later you start an interview I think the better because they always do a group interview and during 2pm there were only 5 of us and usually theres 8-9 people. It was really laid back and calming. They ask questions in a random order so always be prepared to answer. Told us to introduce ourselves and talk about our last job. I've never had a job before so i talked about volunteer work. Then they asked us about 4 questions I believe and just had to answer as best as you can. Try not to repeat what others people said because it shows unoriginality. If you do say the same thing try to add a little bit more to what they said. After the interview we filled out a form for our availability and turned it in then they said we would receive an email in the next 48 hours or so. I interviewed Tuesday and got an email Thursday offering me the position and telling me to fill out paperwork.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's in August 2017.

    Interview

    Walked into a group interview,they had us wait for a little under 30 minutes. The interview was simple and easy but there was something a little off about the interviewer. She definitely had favorites and wasn't afraid of throwing subtle comments against someone's answer. She was condescending and frankly, very rude.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (Bellingham, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email less than a week later with various times to schedule an interview. The interview was less than 30 minutes and was a group interview. This might sound scary, but it really isn't! They only ask a few questions and having other people respond gives you time to think of an answer. Everyone was friendly and it was very casual feeling. Wear business casual clothes, since that is the dress code for employees. I got an email 72 hours after the interview with a job offer.
