    Very good experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEnjoy working with the people and culture. The work is fast paced but also very rewarding. The people make the challenges fun.

    ConsFor a well established company, there can be an immaturity in processes which slows down the decision making process.

    Fabulous training, even better experiences

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsI was supported every step of the way when it came to my career with Kohl's. The leadership invested time to develop me based on my strengths as well as my passion's.

    ConsI excelled in Stores and wanted to move to a corporate position. All positions have to go through your store manager and they rarely give you a chance to even interview for positions that would be a step down for you and you are over qualified for. After training you store side they want to keep you store side at least until you hit Store Manager level.

    I like working at Kohl's because of the people i work with and the products we provide as well as the friendly customers

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsWhat i like about working here is the people I work with. They are friendly and genuinely care about you and they encourage you to grow. We have great products and I really like the special discounts they give staff and the bonuses we receive for signing up new credit card members.

    ConsSome of the challenges we face at times is a shortage of staff to cover the floor which means that those that are on the registers or floor have to cover multiple areas. This shortage sometimes reflects negatively when a customer is trying to find something in a department and the person they need has been called to a register to help with checkout.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are several people I work with that have kohl's as a second income because their main job doesn't pay enough to cover bills. I feel that if kohl's were to change the base rate of pay it would retain more of the loyal employees and they wouldn't have as large of a turn over and shortage of staff as they do.

    Working at Kohs as an Area Supervisor or Executive

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat pay (area supervisors and executives), always opportunities to advance, they never lay people off due to company restructuring, very easy to get promoted as long as you are a dedicated and hard worker, mainly promote from within

    ConsManagement works as hard as floor associates, very long process to term difficult associates that are hurting the company
