    Great First Job

    Sales Floor Associate (Current Employee)
    Succasunna, NJ

    ProsEveryone is SO friendly - employees AND customers. The vast majority of people (at least at my store) are very nice. Coworkers and supervisors are very reasonable. They ask if I take my breaks and how I'm doing, if I need anything, etc. Very clean environment, everyone is pretty amicable and easy to work with. Expectations are realistic; just do what they hired you to do. Every single time I work, I am greeted by at least one person and am told "good night" or "have a good one" by at least one person. Very good flexibility with scheduling. I was able to keep my job even while in school. My availability was accommodated no problem. I feel valued and appreciated, not to mention safe and welcomed. Overall a great place to work.

    ConsIt can be very overwhelming to be the only person in a department, if it's a busy day. The floor can be a mess, the dressing rooms overflowing, recovery full, and then freight to go out, and you're still expected to Smile and Say Hi, and attend to customers' needs. But, that happens in pretty much every retail job, so you just have to keep a good attitude and try to bear with it.

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

    Great company if you want to work in retail

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat associates, worked my way up.

    ConsToo many bosses, less people on the floor

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to the people on the floor, get yourself out of the office and work with the associates. Unload a truck, keep the floor clean, then you will see how hard most associates work

    Great, but need improvment

    POS Associate (Current Employee)
    Westland, MI

    ProsI have the opportunity to work with really great and entertaining individuals. I'm lucky enough that my manager is very help and paitent. There are many opportunities to advance in the company as long as you're a good and relaible employee.

    ConsWhile you can advance in the company it takes much more time to do so than it would in a smaller corporation. Also for a large department store the pay is quite lack luster. While many store will start at $7.60 or more Kohl's only starts at $7.45 so beware if you are looking for a job with more money

    Thanks for the Experiences

    Merchandise Analyst (Former Employee)
    Menomonee Falls, WI

    ProsPay, benefits and corporate environment were a huge plus when looking to establish roots. The 2 years here were well spent.

    ConsA lot of moving parts and sometimes you can get lost? I left a month ago because I found another place with better growth. About the same compensation. I would have stayed if there was better advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI had fun!

    Kohls Corp

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOffice culture in my specific office was outstanding but I heard of bad experiences in different buying offices. I had a boss that genuinely cared about my well being at work and personally. Many benefits available.

    ConsFelt as though growth potential was talked about greatly in the interview but realistically it was minimal from specialist position

    Pleasant, yet highly frustrating

    POS (Current Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsGreat way to meet wonderful people and great discounts. Constantly changing and offering challenges.

    ConsToo many people in charge and conflicting situations. Poor way of evaluating job performance for reviews. Poor training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstall a more detailed complete training procedure with consistent procedures. Less emphasis on aggressive recruiting of credit apps. While being a card holder is a great advantage for the customer, applying for one should not be so aggressively put upon the customer.

    Management Intern

    Internship (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe jobs allowed for a great opportunity to learn all aspects of retail management. It was a well structured internship, and the company invests good money to ensure the program is beneficial.

    ConsThe internship is a full time internship (could be a pro or con depending on your willingness to work). It is 40 hours per week and the schedule changes weekly. It requires some weekend work.
