    Pros

    -Negotiable if you tell them your experience as far as pay is concerned
    - alright benefits
    associate discounts
    you can look up your check instead of guesswork
    First dibs on new clothes or whatever's on clearance.

    Cons

    Catty, unprofessional management.
    bad pay
    People expect you to do assignments alone when it requires 2-3 people to do it efficiently!
    no way to advance
    terrible hours
     gossipy unfriendly coworkers
    unreliable scheduling
    "Yes we can" policy extremely easy to abuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers to grow from their positions instead of letting them sit for years on end, to only become stale. Get rid of the "yes we can" policy. Customers can lie through their teeth and take advantage of this causing the company to ultimately lose money. Show employees some respect!

    Pros

    Unlike most retailers, Kohl's will tries very hard to accommodate each and every employee when creating the next week's shift schedule.

    Cons

    Regardless of the task, they are constantly understaffed. The amount of work assigned to each employee per shift is far beyond what would be possible to complete, especially if you deliver the exceptional level of customer service to each customer that Kohl's is known for. There is immense pressure to push the Kohl's credit card for next to no incentive to you as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doubling the number of floor associates would allow the stores to be clean, organized, and meet all the customer service levels. Simply put, increasing floor staff would increase sales. Also, managers should have to abide by the same Kohl's card signup requirements as non-managers.
