    Pros

    Great discount. Able to combine coupons for extra savings.

    Cons

    Just about everyone is part time so it is hard to get hours.

    Pros

    Has dental, eye care and 401 k benefits, friendly fellow employees, great volunteer opportunities for local groups. Can learn different floor positions.

    Cons

    Schedules and hours per week can vary greatly. I worked at the Vallejo store and not a lot of training given to new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Train and support new employees and they will stay longer. Put more staff on shifts for beginning and ending sales and coupons and busy days. Give more support to new specialists.

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. You never know what to expect.

    Cons

    There is limited room for growth and I was a high potential candidate that went to all sort of development days. There is a lack of communication between the different levels at Kohls. With the drive to cut cost there is less and less payroll available so as an assistant store manager rather than leading you find yourself completing tasks that use to be completed by associates.

    Advice to Management

    customer service is driven by having associates available when 1 person is covering an entire floor there isn't much customer service to be given.

    Pros

    Stable. Work-life balance. Community involved employer. Milwaukee based company. Willing to try new things in stores.

    Cons

    Most managers/leaders are one position over where they should be. Poor development. Value knowledge over leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at how you are leading your business. What worked in the past will not work going forward.


  10. A lot of drama and immature managers who egg the drama on. They all talk bad about their employees

    Pros

    The actual job was great and I loved it!!!! You meet so many great people and it's not a hard job, sometimes I found myself bored without anything to do.

    Cons

    The older women make up a lot of rumors. Almost everyone that works there dreads going and hates management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking so bad about who works for you.

    Pros

    The Associate discount is pretty fair, ample opportunities to move from department to department

    Cons

    not very organized, almost like busy work, you are not appreciated for your efforts, will work you to death without any consideration, you have to be at the beck and call of the job

    Advice to Management

    You need to evaluate what you have in your hands first, then try to adhere to company policies
