Pros

I felt professional and respected, even admired while I worked there. They told me that I could be kept if I worked hard enough so that motivated me to do my best. The store was clean, and the original workers took to me quickly. They hoped I had the job because they really liked me around.

Cons

They laid me off,
I unloaded the truck fast, was never late, I rode my bike to work in the rain and dense fog with semi trucks blaring by me almost sucking me into the road because there were no sidewalks... but nonetheless I still made it. I dressed professionally, black slacks, belt, and a button up collard shirt. I always took the extra shifts, and I never argued.. nothing.. I was great there. Then one day I picked up my weekly schedule and it was blank. I asked if I should come back next week and they said "probably not". I asked if they would call me if they needed a hand 2 weeks from now and this person said "sure". My heart sunk, I knew I had just been let go unprofessionally after all my effort to dress to impress.. to dress for the job.. to out perform. I got played. They got the most usage out of me with a fake carrot at the end of the stick. I felt ripped off. This job was 4 years ago. Had I been kept I could have climbed and continued to do great for Kohl's.

Advice to Management

Allow temporary/seasonal hires to replace your original workers. This will light some fire under those who have gotten "comfortable". This will also increase efficiency and performance of your employees greatly.
Regardless of my experience, I like the choices at Kohl's; I feel classy in the clothes I can get from their. I am tempted to wear my Kohl's nametag/badge and nicer clothes at a local Kohl's just to cause some trouble.. for payback :p

    Pros

    They offer great benefits and many departments allow work from home. When I worked at Kohl's I worked from home 2 days a week. Some departments just work remotely. They benefits were excellent and the discount you get shopping at Kohl's makes a huge difference!

    Cons

    Parking is tough if at working at the main corporate office. Kohl's has satellite offices that have better parking situations but not as many perks as the main corporate building offers. Kohl's is a huge company with a lot of talented people so it may be a little difficult to move up and into other departments in the company.

    Pros

    You can learn about every department and there are a lot of opportunities to move up

    Cons

    A lot is expected from one person. Thy dont understand it might take more than one person to finish a project
