    Pros

    Great environment. Wonderful leadership and teams. Associate empowered to make decisions to address issues involving customers to make everyone's job easier.

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility due to restructuring of the executive positions. This makes any chance of moving up in the company extremely difficult if you're not able to move.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I would have to management would be to remember that as kohls associates our priority is the customer which may get in the way of our lists and tasks.

    Pros

    Excellent management that encourages you to want to be a better employee.
    Various events endorsed by Kohl's to help the community.
    Excellent co-workers with great customer service skills.

    Cons

    Hours are never really predictable, but that's generally how it is with most retailers.

    Keep up the excellent work that you do. I've never been more satisfied with a job than I am with Kohl's.

    The environment at kohl's was wonderful and they paid well for experience levels.
    They always had activities to keep employees entertained while working so that you woulnt hate your job.

    Cons

    Too much moving around on teams and departments there was one team switch that I made and I was only there for 3 weeks. Hours flex down and you never know your off days.

    Pros

    Good place to work. Very good with trying to work with your schedule. Very nice people to work for; A very supportive environment. Eligible for benefits which is unheard of as a hourly worker, an added plus.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement. Low wages. Hard work and the customers can be difficult at times, but that is true in any retail environment!

    Pros

    Great customers, great co-workers, great products, great deals, fun discount savings plans

    Cons

    part-time, limited ability to "move up", hours are "retail"

    Advice to Management

    For the District level management, don't micro manage unless it's obviously needed. If it's a great store, find out why.

    Pros

    Kohl's in Highland Heights, Ohio has a very good management team, and great employees. Everyone was respectful of one another. The schedule is very organized, which is actually uncommon at other places I have worked. Over all, a great department store to work at.

    Cons

    There really weren't any I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
