    Pros

    The main reason I like going into Kohl's is because of some of the relationships I have with my co-workers.

    Cons

    The downside to why I don't like working at this particular Kohl's is management is a little shaky and I feel they play favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Really take time out to make your workers feel like they are apart of the culture. Don't play favoritism to people you like. Don't talk bad about workers to other workers, that's unprofessional.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and helpful. There is always something to do and employees get great discounts.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible! There are plenty of managers but not enough associates on the floor during high volume hours. Having daily Credit Card application quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Increase associate pay to a more reasonable level.

    Pros

    Teaches you how to respect others, how to accomplish plenty of tasks in one day, and how to work by yourself and with a team.

    Cons

    They don't pay their associates enough because there are always 100+ employees working at one department store.

    Advice to Management

    Hire within your store so associates want to stay and have something to grow and look forward to.

    Pros

    This position is very different than any other position within the store. A lot of autonomy. Ability to make own schedule. Management is very big on personal development & work-life balance.

    Cons

    Sitting in a windowless room for most of the day can get boring. Pressure to catch a certain amount of shoplifters.

    Advice to Management

    Be less sneaky in terms of what's happening behind the scenes with the team

    Pros

    All in all Kohl's is a great place to work. It can be very hectic at times when new coupons come out, especially as a fitting room attendant. Hours are relatively flexible, they will work around your needs as much as possible. Time off is accommodated most of the time when it is an option.

    Cons

    Keeping up with fitting rooms during credit sales can be overwhelming if management misjudges the amount of people needed on the floor. We are not allowed to limit the number of items taken into the fitting rooms so watching for theft can be tricky as well. It's also very tough on busy days being a back up cashier and maintaining the cleanliness of your fitting rooms.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees right away how to look up inventory using an RF as well as the main frame. Being able to utilize the mainframe without nagging customer service employees I fee,l is crucial to a floor associate to be able to do their job. I also do not think that when there are credit sales that we should have to honor the coupon prior to the valid period. Example, a customer comes in the day before the sale actually starts and they want to use their coupon, as a cashier I would ask an E3. Most E3's will instruct us to honor it even though its valid dates do not start until the next day.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, always had fun contests, fast paced environment, great discount, loved gaining all of the customer service experience

    Cons

    Very tedious job, hated soliciting credit, poor pay, no opportunities for advancement, often had to deal with horrible customers

    Advice to Management

    It would be wise to offer more opportunities for advancement and pay your employees a livable wage. You are losing valuable employees because of this.

    Pros

    Friendly people to work with. A good team environment. If you start as a sales associate you have the opportunity to apply for a department lead or work in a variety of areas in the store.

    Cons

    Be ready to work weekends, nights, and holidays. November through January is very busy with shopping between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
