    I have been working at Kohl's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits, including medical, vision, etc. Adoption assistance, tuition reimbursement, employee assistance program, gym membership discounts, discount program for entertainment (concert/movie tickets, theme park admissions). Can also purchase goods like furniture, electronics, etc. through payroll deduction. Also, the employee discount.

    Cons

    Advancement is difficult unless you're willing to transfer. It's also a high school like atmosphere, with definite cliques and a very active (generally inaccurate) rumor mill. Work life is much easier if you're popular. Unless you excel at soliciting credit, you receive very few kudos. Payroll is tied to whether daily store sales goals are met. It's more common to be short on payroll, which means some will be asked to take a day off, leaving the remaining employees with a heavier workload. There's a lot of flexibility in the enforcement of rules, especially if the rule bender is a favorite of management (meaning they get a lot of credit applications). Some managers demonstrate little professionalism, i.e. being consistently late, reprimanding employees on the sales floor with others as witnesses, and gossiping about other employees, to name a few. Boundaries between management and floor associates are inconsistent;
