I worked at Kohl's full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Fast pace, decent benefits for a retailer. Provides every other weekend off for management. Stores are fairly clean and do provide a safe working enviorment.

Cons

Not enough hours to staff floor. Customers can wait for up to fifteen mins to find any help. Checkout too long. Again, not enough staff. I'm sure this isn't true in all stores but in the one i was at the store managers expected the supervisors to do their jobs as well. Which put us behind. You have to lead by example, not from behind a desk or in an office. Not in retail.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead by example. Set the standard for the store. Don't ask your staff to do what you yourself aren't willing to do. This earns respect, which is what will keep people dedicated to you and the store. Believe me its not the pay that keeps them there.

    I have been working at Kohl's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    are allowed to do anything to help a customer. good pay for management

    Cons

    Higher pay for outside talent, continuous added workload without any extra resources.constant new programs with little direction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take your time in growing company, growing too fast and can not be monitored. Leadership rarely in stores now compared to earlier days. Too many markdowns learn how to distribute merchandise better to stores no need to have hundreds of the same items that are not selling and not enough of things that do. Can not start locating merchandise without controlling what comes into stores.
