    I have been working at Kohl's part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great working environment! It's like hanging out with your friends. Every now and then you have your not so pleasant assignments but overall it's easy work and it's like being able to shop all day.

    Cons

    The workload can get a little intimidating around weekends and holidays but usually they bring in extra help. The worst part is during the slow times of the year when there is not much workload and hours are reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if there was a way to be more consistent with hours assigned to employee's. And bring back part time medical benefits.

    Pros

    As there is lot of emphasis on the eCommerce the top management is taking this channel seriously and brining in new projects. I see great potential in this company.

    Cons

    One suggestion is giving more power to eCommence unit and brining both Business and Engineering under the same roof. So that they can work seamlessly.

    Pros

    One of the best things about working at Kohl's is that they promote from within. Within the first year of me working there I was promoted to a sales specialist. Another good thing is that they really recognize you for the hard work that you do.

    Cons

    The pay is not that great, but it is just a part-time retail job. You do get a raise each year based on an evaluation of your performance.

    I have been working at Kohl's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent salary for experienced executives, great time off benefits. Relatively easy environment to work in if you are able to multitask.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are lackluster. The company is doing everything they can to squeeze every cent out of the stores. Year after year payroll budgets have decreased while comp sales are flat or increasing. Do a lot more with a lot less!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the lavish Store Manager meetings. Been to two, not the best use of resources. Spend the money on the hourly associates who kill themselves to make this company great. Giving a yearly raise of twenty cents is rather embarrassing.
