    I worked at Kohl's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good with flexibility if you are in hs/college and working PT.
    Can see clearance items before they get onto the floor.
    15% discount; 30% during holidays.

    Cons

    As is probably the case with most retail - managers care more about making sales/credit application quotas than about associates.

    I spent several years at customer service without ever getting promoted to cs on the payroll, despite others hired as cs but working POS getting paid the CS wage.

    No loyalty to associates over customers. Have had instances where customer completely berated and insulted me in front of the manager and (despite the customer returning something that had clearly been stolen) the manager said nothing to the customer and even went out of his way to refund the item against store policy.

    Advice to Management

    Value your associates who have been there for years and do a good job otherwise you will lose them.

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

    Pros

    Discount
    Flexible hours
    stack coupons
    employee shop days

    Cons

    The management is very poor. I knew how to do more than all the managers there. The store manager is all about politics and promotes people who are way under qualified just because theyre all buddy buddy with them. The store manager knows how to do the registers and thats about it.

    Advice to Management

    Get some skills and recognize real talent.
