    I have been working at Kohl's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lenient schedules. You get paid vacation even if you are part time. Very easy going environment. There are many different jobs you can do so you never get bored of one task.

    Cons

    Some managers don't pay attention to the "little guys" meaning that regular sales associates and pos employees are treated differently, giving the advantage to employees that are higher up on the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Part time associates are just as equal as full time employees. Years established does not automatically make you a well informed employee and everyone has the right to advance themselves at kohl's

    I worked at Kohl's

    Pros

    The manager and coworkers were really nice and friendly we all had a chemistry so we all worked well together. The discounts are really good. They try to give a lot of hours I used to easily get at least 30 hours a week but sometimes it would be more or less just depends. They have a lot of great benefits and like to praise their employees for doing good. They also like to cross train you in different areas of the store so you have more experience

    Cons

    Kohls have a lot of entitled customers that think they deserve discounts even when we don't have them. The pay is very bad it's minimum wage and yearly you can only get a won cent raise at the most. The management is always pushing for a lot of credit and rewards.

    I worked at Kohl's

    Pros

    Able to move with fairly quickly. I started off part time and within three years I was already management and on my way to store management level. People are great and policies allow you to have room to make your own decisions within your work environment.

    Cons

    Because I did take the MIT route I was passed over several times for assissant management positions to people who had been there for less than a year, they have their MIT training a backwards!

    I have been working at Kohl's

    Pros

    I like the flexibility of my working hours which I can change for life events along to have a life-work balance. Having promotions that are available frequently is very beneficial, I simple love the opportunities that Kohl's has to offer. Having the ability to continuously work with co-workers and customers has improved my charisma as well as self confidence and even has helped me understand many qualities about other individuals in an amazing way.

    Cons

    The compensation is not what it should be along with the physical work that you do. Kohl's is a very popular and busy place that drives a high level of business, at least in my location, with that being said we are constantly playing catch-up with our duties which is very stressful at times. Another con would be the lack of quality training and the duration of training. Black Friday is a huge con, no one should have to be forced to work on that day let along on Thanksgiving!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time training new and existing associates and ensure that they really do understand, meaning put them in practice scenario's so you get the right outcome. Customers are important which means you want the associates to be knowledgeable and helpful for our important customers.
