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

Pros

Employee discount
Paid vacation time after 1 yr

Cons

Little training given when getting cross-trained
Schedules are very unreliable. One week you will have 16 hours, the next you will have 0.
Harassing customers to sign up for charge card.
Minimum wage for working all day, past midnight or one a.m, sometimes literally cleaning up someone's poop/vomit in changing rooms.

Advice to Management

Associates are not slaves, therefore you should not treat them as such. I really dislike how the managers seem to really play the "favorites" card. If they like you, you will LOVE your job at Kohl's.
If they don't like you, they will make sure you know it and you will begin to despise your job.
