    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.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, family oriented, vacation time

    Cons

    Hours, Black Friday hours especially, store managers that aren't held accountable and have no clue yet were expected to follow them (they have no vision!!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More associates need to be present on the floor. The associates are stressed. Great things would happen if more associates were available to engage with 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.

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

    I worked at Kohl's

    Pros

    The best part of my job were the people I worked with and the friendships that have lasted over the years.

    Cons

    I worked here for 4 years as a cashier and always seem to be going through the transition of a manager. Probably had 9 different managers over the course of my time there.

    I have been working at Kohl's full-time

    Pros

    We are asked to do our best....if you do it...no worries. We know our schedule 2 weeks out so it makes it easy to schedule around your personal life. Very friendly environment, something a little different happens everyday. Employee discount is a great benefit.

    Cons

    I do feel that corporate does not allow enough hours for certain stores for heavier sales days/truck days. There is not any room in the schedule for someone to call out. So if that happens it does make it difficult to complete all task for that day. However, management does know this and just ask everyone to pull together and help. Again, the job is what you make it. Starting salary is way to low to obtain & retain quality part time help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding with the seasoned employees an their needs. They have been the ones that have stuck it out and been there through all the new hires and watched them come and go. Celebrate them sometime with a special pick your perfect schedule week. If done in advance this could be worked out....and what a motivator!!!!
