DO NOT expect great things!

Associate (Current Employee) Mantua, NJ

ProsDecent employee discount. Nice break room.

ConsNO work life balance because the work hours are inconsistent. You will work until 11:30pm and be back to work by 7:30am. Super low pay scale with high expectations. Yearly reviews are a joke. Was given a great evauation but it had to be changed because the manager is not allowed to give out evaluations that have the highest marks. I was told there is a scale that must be followed and a lot of the evaluations had to be changed to follow company protocol. So, my evaluation was tweaked to reflect company protocol and my scores were lowered slightly.....but I wasn't supposed to tell you that. The manager told me I shouldn 't have been told about that policy but I guess it slipped out.. POOR training...basically thrown to the wolves. No communication between management and associates. If you are a mind reader you will excel. Made to take verbal abuse from customers with a smile. Whatever the customer wants they get because they say so. No support for individual departments from management. Female management goes to lunch together and leaves an associate in the manage'ssupervisor's role while they eat. Associates not all treated th same. FAVORTISM!

Advice to Senior ManagementAll management should know how each department runs in Kohl's. Hearing I don't know when I ask a question is not a good answer. If you are young and in charge remember you do not have the life experiences and work experiences to be a truly effective leader. Your department supervisors make Kohl's what it is. Stop taking responsibility for what the asociates do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to shop, not so much to work

    POS Associate (Former Employee) Madison, WI

    I worked at Kohl's part-time for less than a year

    Pros: The 15% employee discount is nice, especially since you can use it in conjunction with other offers. There was never a problem getting time… Cons: Kohl's is extremely focused on getting credit and emails. I never had a problem getting credits but, for the most part, it really was… Advice to Senior Management: Actually focus on customer service. The entire transaction felt like I was trying to sell something to people who, in most cases, were already… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
