Pros

-Negotiable if you tell them your experience as far as pay is concerned
- alright benefits
associate discounts
you can look up your check instead of guesswork
First dibs on new clothes or whatever's on clearance.

Cons

Catty, unprofessional management.
bad pay
People expect you to do assignments alone when it requires 2-3 people to do it efficiently!
no way to advance
terrible hours
 gossipy unfriendly coworkers
unreliable scheduling
"Yes we can" policy extremely easy to abuse.

Advice to Management

Hire managers to grow from their positions instead of letting them sit for years on end, to only become stale. Get rid of the "yes we can" policy. Customers can lie through their teeth and take advantage of this causing the company to ultimately lose money. Show employees some respect!

    Pros

    great as a part-time job or temp job
    flexible hours for part-times employees
    good discounts, employee shopping days
    friendly employees
    a pizza party a couple times a year
    great volunteer for kids projects

    Cons

    low pay , I have worked there for nine years and receive around 3.00 over basic pay
    perform many job functions (Sometimes, I feel like a ping pong ball bouncing around from my department to another department to customer service counter to registers to ad set to jewerly counter to unloading a truck and working freight to price changes)
    not enough people working the store at one time because of payroll allotments
    hard push on credit and emails alot
    no sick leave
    they're open late, so you work late and get up in the morning to go in early because they are open early
    high turnover
    the air in the building is set too high in the summer, you sweat in the summer form running around so much, put your hair up.
    no company picnic, and xmas party poor, no gifts

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting so many demands on your full-time employees. How about making the part-time employee more responsible. Better scheduling. Stop telling the the full-time employee that you can hire two part-timers to take the place of your job.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Some of the sales associates are down to earth and some managers are nice. Kohl's offers some quality products and will give you time off if you request it.

    Cons

    Too much pressure for the pay. They pay me about minimum wage and some of the managers are degrading. They expect your department to be perfect, even on holidays and weekends. Personally, I prefer Macy's, Dillard's, or Belk to Kohl's.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and get to know them.e
