Pros

- amazing benefits - organic cafeteria with endless options - very nice people - extremely interested in community and green initiatives - great compensation

Cons

- lots of middle management, while they are very nice, I feel there are too many people sometimes to get the job done in a fast and efficient manner and everything has to go through a million other hands before it gets approved- but what big corporation isn't like that - can be hard to move to a different career path as they like to set out where each employee will advance

Advice to Management

while I understand it, I feel by making it difficult to for employees to move to different career paths you are losing what could be some new great potential from someone, as it is hard to always know what you will enjoy right off the back

  1. Great place for an internship in retail !

    Former Intern - Store Management Intern in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at Kohl's as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you have never worked retail before, you will learn a lot. Hands on training and you will learn about every area of the store. You are considered part of the executive staff, so you spend time with district and regional managers.They invest a lot into their interns and how good your experience is is really based on how much you put in to it. I got to fly out of state for my orientation and they have a three day conference in Milwaukee for interns and MITs and it was really fun and they pay was competitive.

    Cons

    Your experience will differ depending on the store you are located at and if you are with other interns or not. Really big on not going over hours so they send you home and it left the store understaffed at times , and also which cuts into your learning and you can't finish tasks on time. Making credit is big too, so performance for associates based on if making goals or not. At times i felt that I was in the way and there was no time for me.

    Advice to Management

    Send interns to stores with an executive staff that is better prepared and experienced with having them so they can make the most out of their experience and time with the company.


  2. You can end up with really lovely co-workers...but some of your managers won't be so lovely

    Pros

    - Managers can be really nice sometimes - Get to interact with a lot of customers on a daily basis, so you develop customer service skills. - Develop sales skills due to credit card pushing - You'll meet lovely people in your co-workers

    Cons

    - Credit card goals are the main focus every single day...if you don't meet your goal, your managers can make you feel really terrible sometimes. - Very little hours. I worked part-time, so sometimes I just got 4 hours a week or none at all. - Raise was 15 cents...and I worked my butt off that year.

    Advice to Management

    Try to connect more with your employees... encourage and reward them, don't make them feel terrible. Push customer service, not credit card goals.
