    I have been working at Kohl's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Positive company morale and recognition for job well done. Pays well for retail management position. Company allows you to take care of the customer.

    Cons

    Heavy workload and not a lot of help. Can be long hours including 6 day week during the holidays. Open on Thanksgiving day is not work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    After working at other retailers, I would highly recommend this company as one the best retail companies to work for. The work expected is realistic.

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

    Pros

    -Recognizes things you do from time to time. -Flexible business casual dress code. -Flexible scheduling for school/work.

    Cons

    -Associates driven hard for credit card sign-ups everyday regardless of your average. Sometimes guilt tripped by certain supervisors/manager if not meeting imagined quota of credit. -Dealing with all colors of attitudes and moods from customers. -Extremely low ability to get promoted at all. -Very low raises once per year.

    Advice to Management

    -Get off the backs of associates who on average get many credit cards sign-ups and sometimes don't do well given the little benefit they get and 50 cents usually from doing so.

    Pros

    Investing a lot in technology and is innovating continuously. Has a clear vision and strategy which can motivate people. Appreciates employees.

    Cons

    Too much dependency on vendors. People need to be empowered. Top Down completely.

    Advice to Management

    Build core competencies internally and reduce dependency on vendors. Truly adopt Agile.
