I have been working at Kohl's part-time

Pros

15% employee discount, 15 minute breaks (instead of the legally mandated 10), many store locations to apply to, flexible hours

Cons

Horrible training - inconsistent and incomplete. Learned how to work cash register by using a pdf file (that was out of date and had many incorrect instructions) and was put on register within a day. Will get yelled at by one manager for doing something the way another manager told you to. Too much emphasis on selling credit - can do everything right, have stellar reviews from customers, and still be yelled at for not making credit. Much more work than other places require for the amount of pay.

Advice to Management

Address the cons above

    I worked at Kohl's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -good resources -knowledgable management -clean working environment -internal promotion

    Cons

    For the regular hourly employee the company doesn't train you very well. They will throw you into a new area without any training on the equipment or procedure. The management team will yell at you and write you up if you then do the work wrong. Even though I gave them a pro for internao promotion, they don't care for good workers but only wish to promote their "favorite" friends. The management team will also start cutting your hours and start giving you more work than manageable as an excuse to write you up if they don't like you.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more professional relationship with employees
