    Pros

    You get to work in many different areas, they bring or make food, everyone is friendly and it just feels like family.

    Cons

    There are days when you will have the rudest customers and they will try to ruin your mood and bring you down with them. Don't let them, just kill them with kindness, it really makes them mad then but you feel awesome because you done your job.

    Advice to Management

    I have the best manager ever and she actually talks to all of her employees like we're all family

    Pros

    Nice place to work, good working conditions, working with the public has its positives and negatives. hourly wage was fair and employee discount was nice.

    Cons

    Management was fair, they relied solely on the training videos, no management training provided. Scheduling was horrific, one week you were scheduled every evening and the next week you had no hours, really?

    Advice to Management

    Provide the store managers with a little more manager training.

    Pros

    Co-workers are really nice,I've never had problems with anyone. And the work is easy

    Cons

    Only the department heads get full-time. And they never schedule enough people so they're always calling you in instead of just scheduling you. It's a good job for supplimentry pay.They constantly bug you about credits.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule more floor associates so customers don't complain about associate availability.

    Pros

    Kohl's has good benefits. Working in loss prevention allows you to have a flexible schedule and work in a team environment. If you want to succeed you must show passion and willing to develop others.

    Cons

    This is not directly regarding Kohl's and is toward retail in general. Retail hours are not bank hours and you will be forced to work holidays and Thanksgiving/Black Friday.
