    I have been working at Kohl's

    Pros

    I've had the good fortune of a challenging 14 year career with several different roles and promotions. I'm always learning something new and always rewarded for hard work. I feel like my opinion matters and my leaders help develop my skills. Being a member of Management team provides good benefits, bonus and decent salary.

    Cons

    Hourly Sales Associates could benefit from higher wages and more payroll hours. Feels like they often get dissatisfied quickly and leave.... those providing valuable service to our customers should be a higher priority!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and change! The company is always evolving and those resistant to change or incapable of managing through it often don't provide the right level of Customer or Associate engagement.

    I worked at Kohl's

    Pros

    They are very hands-on with training and constantly checking in to make sure you have everything you need. I really loved my coworkers. I worked here for 3 years and loved it!

    Cons

    Nothing really to say other than, as with any retail job, you HAVE to work Black Friday. Which I found to be fun and exhilarating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
