    Pros

    Company is headed in the right direction. Strong management that has outlined achievable goals for the future that will allow the company to succeed. Management is open to hearing new ideas and trying new things.

    Cons

    Disconnect between B&M and e-commerce. Need stronger communication between teams. Currently, each side doesn't understand the other's workload and this has led to frustration and feeling that associates aren't appreciated.

    I worked at Kohl's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    good place to work at, I had some awesome managers that would help you anytime you had an issue and would teach you everything needed to have a smooth day at work.

    Cons

    For part-time you very little hours and low pay. no benefits for part-time either, so this is mainly a good job for someone that needs a little cash in college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    advice for management would be to keep up the coupons and % off, that is the best way to attract customers.

    Pros

    One gets to engage with the customers and have fun getting the work done in a fast pace environment.

    Cons

    When one is working a seasonal position, he or she may not get a chance to get a part time regular position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to offer the seasonal employees regular part-time employment after the season if over.
