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

    Pros

    Employees are nice, Discounts are nice, you can choose where you feel most comfortable and work in that department. You learn how to be a better shopper.

    Cons

    You have to let the difficult customers roll off your back as you leave the store to go home. Employee appreciation is lacking. There are very few opportunities for full-time positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be happy or find a new place of employment. Managers need to work for the whole store not just their department.

    I have been working at Kohl's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot and for a while I was advancing quickly. There is vacation time and other benefits.

    Cons

    Orem, Utah store management team; they don't seem to have any idea what they're doing. And there is a lot of nepotism at this store. Pays minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management to Orem store 1285! And give better raises, $0.10 every year doesn't help.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Kohl's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    An easy going part time job. The store I worked at was fairly new when I started, but there was plenty of business to keep me busy. The typical retail job all in all.

    Cons

    As mentioned above, there was plenty of business, and sometimes there weren't enough hands on duty. Nothing that was a deal breaker, and honestly something I would of encountered at any retail job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working on consistent scheduling is something I think should be of focus.
