    Pros

    My position at kohl's in part time. I needed part time when I moved back to Indiana. Now I am available for a full time position. I have and associates degree in Business Administration.

    Cons

    This position is not a full time position. My hourly rate is not what I would prefer. My current position can sometimes be very stressful if you have a unhappy customer.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have better communication with employees. Pay raises need to be based on each employee, not on the whole store.

    Pros

    My coworkers at my store are very friendly and fun to work with. The break room is comfortable, and the sales floor is usually well organized. Schedules can be very flexible and easy to work around.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be very difficult to get a lot of hours. Management sometimes bends the rules in order to please the customers, making it confusing for the associates.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that they all communicate more and get on the same page, because we often get different bits of information, depending on who is on duty.

    Pros

    Unbeatable Benefits & Perks. Culture is shifting toward being a much more engaging place to work. Opportunities to work on exciting technology and projects in IT are the best in the area.

    Cons

    Politics. Silos. Management hierarchy is very deep - layer upon layer of management . These things make weeding through the roadblocks on projects to get anything done a challenge. But, again, things are starting to change with that .

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the progress toward making Kohl's teams more functional. The Greatness Agenda is a good start - let's keep the momentum going.

    Pros

    The company rolled out its new "Greatness Agenda" a year ago and it has made a very obvious positive impact at the corporate building. People feel very empowered about their work, happier with their leadership, and dedicated to providing great product to the customer.

    Cons

    Corporate is a bit gossipy. A lot of "he-said-she-said conversations".

    Advice to Management
