Pros

Friendly people, including managers. Flexible around your schedule, cross-train most employees to provide a better, well rounded employee. Great discount on their apparel.

Cons

Credit is not only their king, but it is their god, like most retail stores. They will cut your hours to less than 20 a week if you don't get credits working POS.

Advice to Management

Business is about the customer, and you do exceedingly well with that as it is, but leave credit to those who want it, because they already know if they do or don't. At this point nearly a solid 80% of all credit apps are denied because the people sign up knowing that we'll "yes we can" their sign up discount even if they get denied

    Pros

    It used to be the people, but they are leaving

    Cons

    Quite frankly, if you’re a member of the IS team at Kohl’s you better be looking for a new job. This past week, a brainless VP of eCommerce announced that Kohl’s was going to be outsourcing all QA to a company in India. They are setting a measurable objective of 85% for all QA, and at the same time a 70% objective for developers. The affected workers were given this information is a big meeting, in front of a whole group of IS workers. Oh sure, Kohl’s is offering some alternatives, but only half of the jobs will remain.

    Associates (employees) and Consultants (contract workers) are referred to as “resources”. Your manager is not your boss; instead your manager is a “Resource Manager”. Resources are expected to work day and night, without complaint. You are told, “deliver faster”, “deliver more”. All of this while moving the IT jobs from Wisconsin to India. If you support outsourcing and offshoring then Kohl’s is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    The entire IS management team needs to quit and go to Walmart
