Pros

The pro was that it was a good first job to be able to find out that retail was not for me.

Cons

I had a really awful time at kohl's as did my coworkers who didn't mind letting me know how awful a time they were having on a daily basis.

Advice to Management

Don't just throw your new employees out on the sales floor. I was told I would be training with someone for a week, but no one ever came so I had to figure out everything on my own.

    Pros

    Large teams provide a support system. Benefits aren't the best I've seen, but they're pretty close (401K matching, vacation buyback, etc.) There are some very nice people who work there, and there are some people who do an exemplary job.

    Cons

    The environment is very intense, at times dog eat dog. Cross departmental communication is challenging and internal politics often get in the way of productivity. Very solid glass ceiling. Performance reviews aren't really tied to performance, but become more a cost of living increase.

    Advice to Management

    Take a second look at the culture shift over the last decade and try to stem the attrition by understanding and appreciating true associate performance.

    Pros

    First pickins in the clearance sections was always a bonus.
    Also, the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Working in customer service, I was obligated to take peoples dirty, used things, because of the "Yes we can" policy. Health be damned, it was a disgusting and thankless environment.

    Advice to Management

    Try to see your little worker bees as people, instead of machines. Try helping out with the load instead of sitting in the back office and gossiping.
