    Pros

    Great place to work. Loved the people! Management was firm but supportive, and it was just a fun place to work!

    Cons

    Working overnight for Black Friday was not fun, but they are a retail store so it makes sense.

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

    Pros

    I've worked at Kohl's for two Christmas seasons and have loved every minute of it. The managers at my location will not ask anyone to do anything that they aren't willing to pitch in and help with (even the store manager). The associates are all extremely friendly and helpful, which makes training new associates easy and fun (and less stressful for them). Even working over Black Friday/Thanksgiving, we are asked to volunteer for shifts so that there is no complaints about scheduling over the holidays. It's a great situation.

    Cons

    The starting pay is not great, but you do get periodic reviews and possible increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees some on-the-clock training to improve their knowledge instead of making them do the computer training on breaks and lunch hours. Maybe even a 3 or 4-hour shift per month just for this purpose.

    Pros

    This company is a great company to get into. Associates work as a team to help bring Kohl's values to the floor. A very family oriented store!

    Cons

    This is retail, so the most issues that will arise will be dealing with the customers. From angry to messy, you will have all types of customers!
