    Pretty Satisfied; Room for Improvement

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Santa Rosa, CA

    ProsI get a decent pay, fellow associates are friendly, management takes in opinions, the company seems to be more caring of associates than most.

    ConsHours get cut frequently (especially since they are constantly hiring), rude customers, some associates don't care about the work enough so the caring ones have to pick up the slack, management hires outsiders for upper positions more than promoting valuable/experienced long time workers, and only full-time associates get medical benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think it would be best to promote associates more, rather than hire from outside the store, because there are so many good workers already in the building. Also, don't belittle and talk down to the associates as much.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nice part-time job

    Cashier (Current Employee)
    Durham, NC

    ProsKohl's hires great employees so great relationships can be built between co-workers.
    Great discounts.
    Very flexible scheduling.

    ConsManagement changes a lot.
    Payroll depends heavily on credit and sales, which isn't always met because a lot of people don't want to apply for a Kohl's charge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more compassionate and understanding to your employees.

    Varying hours, friendly co-workers

    Customer Service Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsI love the atmosphere relating to my peers. I have no problem getting along with any of them. I also feel like the management does a decent job getting our opinions and adjusting things that need to be.

    ConsThe constant push for credit can grate on the nerves at times. The pay isn't so bad, it's more the lack of hours the company provides for part-time workers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease place your store executives in their non-typical environment for a day so they can understand the stresses of each position and stay up to date. i.e. - ad set, POS, fitting rooms, truck, merchandising.

    A lot of unloading freight. And folding clothes. Pretty much what you would expect.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Pearland, TX

    ProsLaid back most of the time.

    ConsI hated putting clothes out, and folding them. I stuck to the appliances and other items.

    Good job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are very kind and it is a nice work environment for if you enjoy fast paced and fun. No uniforms and great discount.

    ConsSometimes the customers can be difficult and annoying. Some managers are hard to get along with as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to be more understanding of the fact that sometimes not everything can be done.

    Great place but not great pay

    POS Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsKohl's was very flexible and willing to work around my school schedule. Good coworkers made work enjoyable. Great part time job.Hectic and frustrating during busy days, especially the holidays, but that's no different than working retail anywhere else.

    ConsPay could be higher and larger raises.

    I loved working for Heathar Meineke

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
    Grand Forks, ND

    ProsIt was always busy which made the days fly by.

    ConsBeing understaffed was a challenge

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease have someone monitering the fitting rooms full time to keep theft down and cleanliness and organization up.

    Great co-workers and managers, low pay and unpredictable hours

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsCo-workers and flexible hours. Management treats their employees pretty well.

    ConsPay isn't great, but it's what you would expect from retail. Hours can be unpredictable at times, in which one week you could be working more than 30 hours and others you'll work less than twelve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKohl's should offer more opportunities for advancement.
