    I worked at Kohl's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount, easy to trade shifts if needed, dress code isn't strict, paid vacation time, VERY lenient with the attendance policy. Many opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    MANAGERS. All promotions are based on who's the manager's friend. If you cannot (or WILL NOT) kiss butt, you will not have a career there. They let little kids (18-19) be managers and they just play with their favorites all day every day. Lazy people get away with anything if they are the manager's friend. Pay is a joke, even as a department supervisor. But again- if you kiss butt, your pay may be higher because you can get a "merit raise". Regular associates start near minimum wage and the company expects WAY too much work for that. If you're a cashier, your hours will be based on how many "credit applications" you get, meaning how many people you can manipulate into signing up for a credit card. They require each store to have a certain number of employees, which is a lot, and then they only give many of them like 4-10 hours a WEEK if they're part-time. Overtime is rare and usually punished. Even full-time associates/managers usually average around 36 hours a week. If you have a serious workplace issue and contacting corporate is your last resort, corporate will not care. You have to do pretty much anything for the customer, even when it is immoral, like returning crusty underwear, filthy shoes, or honoring their extremely-expired coupons. That is one of the main reasons I do not see a bright future for the company- too many people are abusing the return policy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the power trips. Others notice your favoritism. Show some respect for those under you.

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

    Pros

    Awesome customers and my store has an amazing staff. You meet a lot of great people and I feel like a part of a little family.

    Cons

    Very hard to move up in the company. They rarely promote from within the company, and the raises are small and offered only once a year, with no chance of furthering your self or your pay for the year.

    Advice to Management

    The management are kind of stuck with the rules they have. I belive corporate should be more willing to pay their employees based on performance and knowledge of the rest of the store.
