    I applied online. I interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    Phone Interview, Interviewer stated the next step would happen when the District Manager returned. Even though I sent a follow up thank you and phone call, I never heard back. Not even a rejection letter?

    Interview Questions

    • I did not feel that any question was too difficult except for why I want to leave my current employer.
      That was difficult for me to talk about since I do not want to "bad mouth" or appear negative due to the fact that the reasons I want to leave are due to unethical and poor practices.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kohl's (Springfield, MA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Team interview, on top of two separate interviews with hiring managers. The questions were easy and the managers were very friendly. The team interview was tough because none of us knew anything about retail management or selling clothes. It was really just a case study and they wanted to see your leadership ability among the group.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you see yourself in retail in five years or in corporate management?   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview

    Phone interview was a little odd. Recruiter wanted names of others that she could recruit which didn't make sense. Online assessment included 20 math story problems that were irrelevant for the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kohl's (Athens, GA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I received the opportunity to interview with Kohl's by attending an on-campus career fair. I spoke with one of the recruiters and she offered me an interview. I thought the interview went ok considering it was my first real interview. It was very laid back and conversational. I could have answered a few questions more thoroughly, but overall, I think the interviewer was pleased with my responses. Afterward, it took about two weeks for them to send a response. i did not get another interview, but it was a good experience.
