    Pros

    Pay and benefits are ok. Four weeks vacation from hire date. Profitable growing company 15 percent discount that you can combine with other promotions.

    Cons

    Way to many tables of apparel to fold payroll is very tight. Credit push is annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic with payroll and standards will improve.

    Pros

    15% discount, ability to combine multiple discounts, relatively easy work, good working environment, if you work hard, you get hours.

    Cons

    some of the managers suck, you have to PUSH Kohl's cards on people, the more Kohl's Card apps you get the more hours you get, understaffed, annoying customers who are just out to save a buck.

    Pros

    Decent hours if you want to come in, cool coworkers, lots of freedom when working alone or with coworkers.

    Cons

    boring, the shifts drag on and sometimes they don't schedule enough people to close and you get out late

    Advice to Management

    get more people to close on the nights you know are going to be busy. They are making tons of money already

    Pros

    Good discount, insurance options and PTO were decent for full-time employees, laid back environment, flexible schedule, and a good opportunity to learn customer service, sales, and cash handling.

    Cons

    Excessive workload: there it basically no way you can accomplish all given tasks with the payroll corporate allots to each store. Upward Communication: Managers are willing to listen to your complaints but don't have the power to do anything to change the cause of those complaints. Advancement: Consistently hired from outside the company and corporate has cut several promotion opportunities in the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time in employee training to maximize effectiveness of insufficient payroll

    Pros

    They have a really flexible schedule and work around what you need. They also have a really great team of people there.

    Cons

    There is hardly any support from your superiors and their ways to motivate people could be a lot better. They also don't have a lot of chances to move up.
