Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales Associate

I have been working at Kohl's part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

It’s like a family, we all care about each other and it’s always fun to go into work! Everyone is happy to help everyone and rarely are there issues that can’t be fixed

Cons

There is no clear division of labor. You’re going to be asked to do a lot of different things that may not “fall under” your job discription but the more you know how to do, the more hours you’ll get.
