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

    Pros

    Best reason to work at kohls is the customers. Not all customers get what they want or appear happy but being able to get them to leave with a smile is the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Downside of working at kohls is there is no room for advancement, there are no hours available. Not a good company to work for if you're looking for a career with their limited full time opportunities available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs more communication. Corporate needs to see what really happens on a store level and not just sit in an office making changes not realizing how it doesn't work on a store level. They should look more into associate well being and not stuffy their pockets with money.

    I worked at Kohl's full-time (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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to follow federal labor law
