    I have been working at Kohl's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Positive company morale and recognition for job well done. Pays well for retail management position. Company allows you to take care of the customer.

    Cons

    Heavy workload and not a lot of help. Can be long hours including 6 day week during the holidays. Open on Thanksgiving day is not work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    After working at other retailers, I would highly recommend this company as one the best retail companies to work for. The work expected is realistic.

    Pros

    Management helps, listens and is really focused on making things better for the associates. Lots of engaging activities.

    Cons

    Coordinators are not trained. A lot of the time employees are training their new boss.

    Advice to Management

    Train your coordinators better. Communicate.

    Pros

    There is clinic inside of the call center that is free for employees and their dependents. There is also a café onsite. 401K, they match up to 6%.

    Cons

    It is a flexible position so you can be flexed down to 32 hours weekly during slow periods and during peak periods you can be flexed up to 45 hours.

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule. They understand that you have a life outside of work and as a college student I appreciate how they really fit to my needs and changing times with my schedule to fit both work and school.

    Cons

    Don't give very many hours and hard to move forward in the company .

    Advice to Management

    If someone comes asking for more time it would be nice to have it done especially if this is there only job.

    I worked at Kohl's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Started off as a seasonal Customer Service Retail Rep ended as a Permanent Credit Card Advocate, as soon as you pass the phone interview and skills test you have an in person interview, right from the start the management are very welcoming and so is the whole vibe of the place. Its a nice atmosphere I feel we are treated very well as employees which in return helps us treat our customers well. kohls truly believes in valuing their customers and I have learned a lot in my time with the company. Indoor cafe, Computer Room for personal breaks, Xbox room, friendly upbeat environment

    Cons

    None! :) except that I had to leave due to Relocation

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Kohl's part-time

    Pros

    It's a flexible schedule. They work around the schedule you give them

    Cons

    This job isn't for someone who is trying to pay bills, it's good for a part-time job just have money.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have flexible hours and can work well with your schedule if you are in school or have two jobs. The job is not overly demanding.

    Cons

    There never seem to be enough employees working for the amount of business the store has. This is especially true in the summer. You do have to deal with frequent policy changes causing customers to be less than pleasant.

    Pros

    It's really fast pace which may sound more like a con, but you find out it's actually a pro when your 6hour shift feels like it lasted for only an hour! The employees are nice and helpful! The management is overall understanding and nice (except for that Adam...I just get bad vibes from that guy!).

    Cons

    You have to push credit like crazy and it becomes a bit repetitive. But that's just corporate stuff!

    Advice to Management

    A little less on pushing credit would be nice and uh.....find out what's wrong with that Adam...okay bye :)

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Flexible scheduling. Easy to take days off. Understanding managers. Great job to have while in school. Loved working here

    Cons

    Poor communication between managers. Customers can be rude and demanding. Little to no room for advancement. No guaranteed hours and low wages.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to work their scheduled shifts. Improve communication between managers, specifically regarding coupon acceptance policies. Always back up your cashiers/customer service associates when dealing with rude customers.
