I worked at Kohl's part-time for less than a year

Pros

- Kohl's offers a decent employee discount
- The company is fairly flexible with scheduling for part-time employees. Some people who wanted as many hours as possible worked close to 40 hours a week, while others who just wanted a few hours only worked 1-2 days.

Cons

- Constant pressure to solicit Kohl's charge applications
- Company panders to customers by accepting all returns (even of items that are years old or did not originally come from Kohl's)
- Long hours--expect to stay well past midnight cleaning up the store during closing shifts
- Little to no overtime--managers will send employees who are approaching overtime for the pay period home in order to avoid paying them extra

    I worked at Kohl's full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    pay, part time hours for those employees that want them. Hires for seasonal jobs to help people with Christmas spending money. Not a heck of a lot of good about this company

    Cons

    Does not follow labor law, inconsistent scheduling of employees, schedules constantly changing, no consideration for family life balance, continually expanding hours especially on holidays with no consideration of people's personal life and are threatened with either work it or not get any hours next schedule, only focus is on credit acquisition. Employee moral is horrible and management does not care.

    I worked at Kohl's for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of room for improvement. Free chewsticks. No charge for using toilets. Get paid while you poop. Poop while you get paid (it was so good I had to say it twice).

    Cons

    Management stifles creativity and work ethic of younger energetic employees. Can smell like farts. Loss Prevention Troll gets angry if you don't pay his toll; he'll leave his cave and hunt out Shoe Knights enjoying a brief moment of merriment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back Alan Foster. Bring back Kohlkemon promotion. Do not hire employees under 4 feet unless they come equipped with stilts.
