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.

    Pros

    The Associates and Some of the customers.

    Cons

    the hours after a certain point, I felt as though they were giving me less and less to try and push me out to hire new people. Although I was always on top with helping customers and making sure they had a pleasant shopping experience !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop having the associates do YOUR job! Then when we (the associates) mess up, we get in trouble!
