    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kohl's.

    Interview Details

    I did a lot of networking with kohl's such as a sophomore shadow day and networking events/career fair, and was given an interview after applying through my campus recruitment website. The interview room at my university was packed with people waiting for their interviews as Kohl's did all of theirs on the same day. The questions were very conversational, going over your experience and just seeing if you fit into their culture. It was a very pleasant experience. I interviewed for 2 internship positions and was invited to the second round for the Purchasing Intership position. They take you to their headquarters in milwaukee where you and others selected stay at a very nice hotel and have a networking dinner, then do a tour of their campus the next day, along with interviewing a couple people. Overall a very personal, get-to-know-you kind of process.
