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

    Pros

    No micromanaging, can take the initiative, respects and appreciates employees, active in local communities/causes, encourages self improvement and development. Also, they are big on hiring veterans and older workers. I had a veteran coworker become an assistant manager in just a couple of months (his first day on the floor, customers thought he was the store manager!).

    Cons

    Low pay, hours changed for receiving on truck days from 6 am to 4 am. Some problems in management turnover that I was not accustomed to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate, please raise the pay as the workers are so diligent and loyal, and with the increase in living expenses, it makes it so hard to keep people that want to stay.

    I worked at Kohl's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is great. The break room was huge with plenty of microwaves and refrigerators and vending machines along with a designated outdoor smoke area and plenty of eating space. The work is very simple and training is comprehensive.

    Cons

    During seasonal employment they hired a lot of people who lacked common sense and that had a propensity for accidents and fights. Also these same people spent more time on their phones than doing their jobs. The supervisors and problem solvers had attitudes consistently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better people.
