    Great company, but limited advancement opportunities and lower pay than some competitors

    Pros

    Fantastic work/life balance, managers take an active role in development, great company culture, great employee discounts. Great company if you want to own your current role and go home at the end of the day without carrying it with you.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities.. The company has consolidated districts twice in the two years I have been here, eliminating numerous upper-level positions. Despite showing great interest in employee development, the number of positions has drastically decreased. Pay is lower than some other companies for the same roles. .

    Pros

    Work life Balance, flexible hours, management not required to work every weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to teach and coach new employees and supervisors.

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great working environment! It's like hanging out with your friends. Every now and then you have your not so pleasant assignments but overall it's easy work and it's like being able to shop all day.

    Cons

    The workload can get a little intimidating around weekends and holidays but usually they bring in extra help. The worst part is during the slow times of the year when there is not much workload and hours are reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if there was a way to be more consistent with hours assigned to employee's. And bring back part time medical benefits.

    Pros

    As there is lot of emphasis on the eCommerce the top management is taking this channel seriously and brining in new projects. I see great potential in this company.

    Cons

    One suggestion is giving more power to eCommence unit and brining both Business and Engineering under the same roof. So that they can work seamlessly.

    Pros

    One of the best things about working at Kohl's is that they promote from within. Within the first year of me working there I was promoted to a sales specialist. Another good thing is that they really recognize you for the hard work that you do.

    Cons

    The pay is not that great, but it is just a part-time retail job. You do get a raise each year based on an evaluation of your performance.
