Kohl's is great for a part-time job, but don't make "Sales Associate" your life's career.

I have been working at Kohl's

Pros

Good pay- 8.76/hr
Friendly, helpful, and patient co-workers
Modest employee discount- 15%
"Yes We Can" Policy-- We don't have to bother management every time we need price adjustments or whatever. That also counts towards forgotten coupons... We can take the percent or dollar total off without needing a coupon. I'm surprised people don't abuse this more.

Cons

Management has sexist attitude towards customers- It's all about HER, yet I see a considerable amount of men shopping here too.
Poor training- I went thru two hours of computer training, and thirty minutes of buddy POS training. the next day, metaphorically speaking, they thru me into the lake and expected me to teach myself how to swim.
Poor communication- No one gave me an ID number, or helped me set up a POS password until I started incessantly bugging them about it. They don't post the schedule until the last possible minute, and no one is ever in the office.
The stockrooms are a hideous mess. It's so hard to find anything because everything is everywhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate better
Post schedules a week (not a day) before.

    Pros

    Very organized program! It also helped that my store manager was on top of things as far as the experience goes. Just sad that I just missed it when they started flying out interns to the corporate office =/ so the program is even better now I hear.

    Cons

    I've heard mixed things about the program and it was mainly b/c of the store manager. Just be assertive so if they go away from the program, so remind them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job. Just be weary about getting too anxious, acting like chickens with your head cut off when there's a store walk through, because it rubs off on everyone else and freaks them out, keeping them from focusing on their job
