    I have been working at Kohl's full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company vision that all are striving for (To inspire and empower families to lead fulfilled lives). Not satisfied with just being ok...we want to be the best. Friendly Associate workforce. Wellness Center at Corporate is state of the art. Feel like I have autonomy to make decisions that help shape my job.

    Cons

    I feel like the office setting itself could be more exciting with colors, art, etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening and be transparent. We all appreciate it.

    Pros

    Hours are reasonable, I love my employees, work is usually fun.

    Cons

    Intense pressure from corporate to solicit customers for credit cards. 25% of my review is based on the customer surveys that customers fill out, which is insane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stores that cheat on measurables & have no integrity are rewarded. This is immensely unfair to non-cheating stores. Stores should be ranked on individual goals, instead of blanket corp goals which apply to every store - when not all stores have the same challenges. Give managers honest feedback on potential for advancement instead of blowing smoke.

    Create more of an opportunity for employees to move up within the company. Also, your return policy is way too lenient.
