    Pros

    You get to work with different associates and managers. Rarely a quiet moment; there's always something to do and get done (sometimes it allows time to go really quickly).

    Cons

    Poor benefits (if there are any for part-timers). Employees don't get treated very well by management nor do they get offered very much. Though in some cases, some have been favored over others. Pay is atrocious, only minimum wage in many cases (area supervisors don't get paid much more than the cashiers and sales associates). Hours are inconsistent each week and oftentimes based on your performance and whether or not you get enough credit and/or e-mail applications. Lots of rude customers getting on your case. Can't take any time off during the holiday season (November and December) and inventory periods. So no work/life balance, in other words.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and be more flexible with them. Learn how to show more respect and find ways to help them instead of harming them. A lot of good hard-working associates have moved on because of rotten treatment over the years.

    Pros

    Employee discount, Kohls empowers their employees to make their customers happy, and I had the privilege of working with some really great people.

    Cons

    Long hours on Friday and Saturday nights, often times did not get out of the store until 12am, despite only being scheduled until 11pm. If you know how to do the jobs in multiple areas of the store, you get more hours...but count on being pulled in many different directions during the day, and then being questioned about why you did not accomplish much during the day. Soliciting credit. Need I say more?

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the good old fashioned basics of having enough people in the store to service your customers.

    Pros

    Freight position was cool. Interesting people. okay manager, first to get to see new stock

    Cons

    hated the POS position: you have to sell the credit cards which I absolutely hated, my store manager was one of the worst people I've ever met, you get in trouble if you leave your register at all even when its slow but you're expected to be actively working at all times, managers want employees to apply for credit cards when they haven't met their goals which is absolutely ridiculous.
