    Former Employee - Textile Designer in Milwaukee, WI

    I worked at Kohl's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My manager was fantastic, and the team I worked on was tight-knit and hard-working. Everybody in Art and Design really cared about having great product. Overall - good experience, with lots of perks (cafeterias, starbucks, profit sharing, vacation buy options, half-days off around holidays, fairly flexible work schedules, jeans any day, etc).

    Cons

    There were issues with communication across departments (Buyer to designer, etc) and sometimes lack of even acknowledgement across departments, but I think that these things are probably common in any workplace. There have been a lot of changes going on in PD over the last year (leadership changes, new titles, changing teams), and some people got kind of shafted when the new positions rolled out. But if you're coming in now you're probably much better off.
