    Pros

    Great place to work. Loved the people! Management was firm but supportive, and it was just a fun place to work!

    Cons

    Working overnight for Black Friday was not fun, but they are a retail store so it makes sense.

    Pros

    Good training, good benefits. Management is willing to help out. Does have a big turn over due to low hours for employees at times.

    Cons

    Low hours. Hard working with the public during holidays. Not a lot of room to move up. Starting pay is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more room for advancement and give employees more hours so they want to stay.

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I've worked at Kohl's for two Christmas seasons and have loved every minute of it. The managers at my location will not ask anyone to do anything that they aren't willing to pitch in and help with (even the store manager). The associates are all extremely friendly and helpful, which makes training new associates easy and fun (and less stressful for them). Even working over Black Friday/Thanksgiving, we are asked to volunteer for shifts so that there is no complaints about scheduling over the holidays. It's a great situation.

    Cons

    The starting pay is not great, but you do get periodic reviews and possible increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees some on-the-clock training to improve their knowledge instead of making them do the computer training on breaks and lunch hours. Maybe even a 3 or 4-hour shift per month just for this purpose.

    Pros

    Fantastic group of people. Great overall business strategy and merchandise line.

    Cons

    If your supervisor doesn't like you, your career will end before it begins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't set expectations on customer service feedback to high to obtain.
