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

Pros

Great place for having great co-workers, lots of volunteer work for the community.

Cons

Low pay, also having so many different managers caused communication issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't over hire and let those people go based on attendance... A lot of people who didn't do anything stayed and people who care had to go....

    I worked at Kohl's

    Pros

    The discount was really the only benefit. I can't think of a single other pro, except that it was a job when I needed one.

    Cons

    -Eliminate positions and make you take on the work of two positions for the same pay
    -Always trying to reinvent the wheel
    -horrible HR
    -micromanagement
    -work/life balance was horrible
    -dealines unrealistic
    -pay average-low
    -backstabbing management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your corporate/field employees like human beings. Don't allow upper management to treat employees like scum. Eliminating jobs and then forcing your other employees to pick up the slack for the same amount of pay is just ridiculous. Shame on you.

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy helping customers, and I'm thankful to Kohl's for hiring me as it is my first job. I don't have any other pros.

    Cons

    Store manager is setting us up for complete failure. Out of control store and management. Mangers WILL intimidate and pressure you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been with Kohl's for about a year, I have never seen so many corrupt things go on behind the scenes. I love Kohl's as a corporation but the store I work for is ridiculous. So many things go on that corporate should know about, I feel like a slave working at this store and we are treated like crap. They control us with intimidation all day every day. I'm sure my store will have lawsuits soon.
