    Retail is Retail

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEasy to schedule around your personal life - not required to work 12 or 13 hour days which is nice for retail. Lot's of great people to work with and stable environment. You don't feel that you could be "let go" at any time for any reason. Pretty secure.

    ConsNot enough associates to handle the work load and to meet the high expectation for 100% satisfaction on customer surveys. It is hard work - non stop.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within. There are some very talented, dedicated individuals that have been in it for the long haul and know it inside and out. Quit hiring from outside to fill executive spots. Some of us have worked hard and will give you our all - a little hope for a future would be nice.

    Nice place to work, helpful people

    Sales Floor Associate (Former Employee) Hillsboro, OR

    Pros-When I was working there, they were paying slightly more than minimum wage for the sales associate position, so that was nice.
    -My coworkers were generally helpful and friendly
    -I didn't run into too many rude customers at all

    Cons-They often called asking me to come into work 'cause someone else didn't show, which is understandable but a bit annoying
    -They're always updating one system or another, it seemed. It's nice once you get the hang of it, but can be stressful when starting

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your employees feel comfortable doing whatever they're assigned, and have an upbeat and positive attitude; it REALLY helps! Also try to be understanding and patient (some of us get easily stressed-out/anxious!)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Really good company with great people!

    District Loss Prevention Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe people in the company are great to work with and always take the time to help others out. The leadership in the company will always take the time to support their leaders working in the stores.

    ConsThere really are no issues at the company that I am aware off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is a conservative company that is all about placing things on reports. Know excel and know operations because if it happens at Kohl's it is on a report some place. Be ready to talk to your information and you will do great at this company.
