Current Employee - Store Manager Intern in Scottsdale, AZ

I have been working at Kohl's full-time (less than an year)

Pros

As as intern, we were thrown on the floor to learn how to manage associates, on a daily basis. We were assigned at least 4 hours of manager on duty. This gave interns a lot of experience. The internship that i was in, i learned a lot, and was not treated as an extra associate, meaning that I wasn't put on the cashier all day. I was given a manager duties. We unloaded trucks as well, to learn about that aspect of the company.

Cons

Other interns, depending on which store you are in, were given the task to be cashiers all day. That is not part of the program.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let interns know what they should do when they have free time.

    Pros

    Big discount a few times a year

    Cons

    low pay, not enough hours, no recognition of good work ethic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees longer shifts than 4 hours, give better wages, and give more recognition to those who work hard.

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Flexible-ish Hours
    -Minimal Health Benefits (meager)
    -Discount plans for merchandise and services outside of company
    -Diligent workers can expect 40 hour weeks, pending on availability.

    Cons

    -Closing Shifts usually involve staying 1-3 hours past schedule
    -High expectations from management despite low pay.
    -Only 15% discount on merchandise (35% on select days of the year)
    -Customer service policy not clearly defined, yet rigorously enforced
    -Corporate Office expects all stores to operate the same despite clear difference in resources from store to store (especially for older stores)
    -Occasionally will be expected to work 40 hour weeks, only to be punished for working over 36 hours from corporate (part timers).
    -No overtime (except on VERY rare occasions)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (Corporate) Reduce effect merchandise returns to stores have on distributing payroll. Stores applying "yes we can" to returns are effectually being punished for following a directive which maintains customers.
     Better clarify how to implement customer service policy beyond sloganism. Too many unwritten and/if/or/buts which lose customers expecting some form of consistency.

    (General Management) Keep a more prudent eye on supervisors/department leads. Company resources are far too thin to allow junior management/supervisor positions to only delegate orders but not physically contribute to completing tasks.
