    Pros

    You get to work in many different areas, they bring or make food, everyone is friendly and it just feels like family.

    Cons

    There are days when you will have the rudest customers and they will try to ruin your mood and bring you down with them. Don't let them, just kill them with kindness, it really makes them mad then but you feel awesome because you done your job.

    Advice to Management

    I have the best manager ever and she actually talks to all of her employees like we're all family

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, wonderful staffing, and a chance to prove yourself when you're working are great signs that the company is doing something right to make their employees happy.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, you only have a very select amount of hours that you can work, and it can sometimes be frustrating that you'd want more work, even if there isn't much available.

    Pros

    The potential for growth within the company.

    Cons

    The consistency within the company, and I mean this in a positive way. I think Kohl's is a fantastic company, I just feel the company is drifting further away from the foundation it was originally built on.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, performance driven promotions, potential for benefits, room for growth. Lots of fringe benefits (fantastic discount, frequent employee appreciation events, etc).

    Cons

    Huge, sometimes to the point of alienating. Communication between departments needs work.

    Advice to Management

    Better interdepartmental communication.

    Pros

    I'll be able to learn something new and enjoy pressuring myself into standing out and possibly move up into the company.

    Cons

    I may not get all the hours I would like but hopefully with my hard work you will decide to give me ,more.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

    Pros

    I like getting pains weekly and the opportunity to grow in the company. If you focus on your goal you'll have a great experience.

    Cons

    Very unorganized upper level managers. The low wage but there are rumors of the base pay increasing within the company. The hours aren't consistently scheduled.

    Pros

    World class quality merchandise, ridiculously discounted prices, multi layered couponing and cash back! The employees then get an extra 15% discount. This helps the customers, it helps the community and it definitely helps us as employees! This is a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    I would love some more hours.
