Pros

if you work hard and dont cause any trouble you advance real quick. If your a full timer your guarnteed 36 hours a week. vacation, benefits all that jazz

Cons

now even though that is great. the excitement only last so long. your asked to work long hours. most of the time you close one night just to open the next, close and then open again. yes they give you exactly 8 hours in between but what kind of life is that. dont try to better yourself by going to school and trying to work at kohls ever. they say they accomidate but its a joke. if your part time and this is your only job i feel for you. becuase your only going to get 10 hours a week and make little to nothing. most of the time there only 4 people on the floor all day so be expected to do everything perfectly and leave exshausted and never get a thank you or great job. and the minute you have a suggestion or complaint consider that your resignation becuase now management is going to find a reason to fire you and get a replacement. the job sucks the people suck the company sucks

Advice to Management

get real. stop putting so much pressure on the associates. overloading them with work is not going to save you money. be grateful for what your associates do for you

    Pros

    Yes We Can philosophymeans associates don't need management approval for most things regarding customers.

    Cons

    Very hard work...not enough associates to maintain floor standards.

    Advice to Management

    Working in the stores is more hands on than you think it is. Asst Mgrs and Store Managers do most of the resets. Lack of associates on the floor means standards aren't where we know they should be. As an Asst Mgr, we have to overlook floor messes to get done projects deemed important by DMs and corporate. We either got in trouble for not doing resets in order to move manpower to clean up the store (recovery) or for resets being done and the floor is a mess. It's extremely difficult to both on allotted payroll.

    Pros

    - Die Atmosphäre ist im Vergleich zu den meisten anderen Geschäften recht ordentlich. - Die meiste Arbeit ist immer in der Damen- und der Jugendabteilung, aber es sind immer ein oder zwei Leute da. Nur die Arbeit ist nicht gerecht aufgeteilt.

    - The atmosphere is actually okay compared to most stores. - The work in the ladies and juniors dept. is always the most, but there's always one or two people there. Just the work is not fairly split up.

    Cons

    - Für Studenten sehr lange Arbeitstage. Wenn Sonderaktionen laufen, dann ist das Geschäft bis um 10:00 Uhr geöffnet und es braucht seine Zeit, bis alles wieder aufgeräumt ist.

    - For students, very long work days. When there are certian specials going on they are open till 10 and it still takes a while for everything to be cleaned up.

    Advice to Management

    Man sollte freundlicher mit den Arbeitern umgehen und auch wenn es viel zu tun gibt, sollte man sich mehr Zeit nehmen, mit den Arbeitern zu sprechen.

    Be friendlier to the workers, and even though there is a lot of work to be done, please take more time to talk to the workers.
