Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Canton, GA
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kohl's (Canton, GA) in November 2012.

Interview

It was a group interview. There were probably around 20 people in the room. These interviews are honestly the worst. If you weren't asked something first, you'd often just end up repeating what the interviewee before you said. There were a lot of "yeah, pretty much everything so-and-so said" answers. Seemingly everyone attending the interview was hired despite that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kohl's (Schaumburg, IL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. The hiring manager took the three of us in and asked each of us in turn different questions relevant to our personal experience. She had to duck out for a moment to attend to a situation in the store, leaving the three of us applicants to chat, but other than that the entire interview went without a hitch.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    Group interview. Took turns answering the same questions. Everyone just tried one upping each other. It didn't seem like a serious interview, more like just getting to know everyone. Awkward at first, especially if you're uncomfortable talking in front of others.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kohl's in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was group interview. It was short and sweet and the interview lasted for 15-20 minutes. The paperwork was minimal because it's a seasonal job. I think they mostly care about the commitment of the hours you are willing to work there. Overall, don't be nervous because I was really nervous and you'll do just fine.

    Interview

    I applied for a job online, and shortly after I receive the email to schedule an interview. So week later I had my interview. The interview was pretty good they end up taking me earlier than the time I have scheduled. The hiring manager was also pretty friendly. She asked me a little about My previous job experience. Then she asked me to typical 3 questions that every interviewer in retail uses. I really thought I was going to get the job because he seem to have liked me. But the next day I end up getting a friendly email saying sorry we can't offer you a position at this time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's (Stockbridge, GA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly easy. I filled an application out online and about a week later received an email to schedule an interview. I went to the interview September 29th,2015. Like I have read on Glassdoor, this interview was a group interview with about 5 candidates including myself. The interview questions were read off of a sheet. The questions were very basic questions that each of us had to answer. The interview was about an hour and a half. After the interview was over we each received a card with the store manager and an informative card about what to do if we were to receive and offer. Friday, October 1st I received an email offering me the position.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kohl's (Lapeer, MI) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The format of the interview was a small group interview. There were only two others with me along with two Kohl's team members. One asked the same questions to all three of us while the other rated our responses. The interview was rather easy and the questions were very basic. Having achievements and responsibilities in previous positions will help you.
