Pros

Exciting product lines. They strive to design everything to be as efficient as possible ie fixtures, visual, reports etc. They research and test everything they roll out to death (this is a good thing they want to ensure if they bring it to the store that it works well and provides value.

Cons

Because Kohls strives to provide a nearly identical shopping experience to all customers--EVERYTHING is controlled centrally (at headquarters). So it is very difficult to change sets and customize merchandising, or inventory needs at the store level. Not unlike many other retailers directions is given with regard to how mannequins should be dressed but if a bow on a dress was not exactly like the picture you would be called on it.

Advice to Management

HR interferes way too much with basic associate issues. Just so you know prior to a corporate visit (which was a couple times a year) we would be told by DM and RVP to spend as much payroll as possible and then they would come back two-three days later and tell us we would HAVE to make payroll. This happened for EVERY visit in CA.

    Pros

    Friendly associates. We are one big family at kohl's. Managers have a group of there favorite associates. Always giving them more opportunities to work.

    Cons

    Wish the pay was a bit more. With all the customers we have to deal with. Some of them are very rude and degrade us.

    Advice to Management

    Just tell us what's happening. We are not children.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, nice coworkers and decent employee discount.

    Cons

    It's retail so the pay isn't the best and hours are all over the place.

    Advice to Management

    More accountability and communication with employees.
