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

Pros

The job isn't that difficult, my coworkers are amazing, and it is possible to have another job.

Cons

Credit is emphasized over customer service and despite what they say this company does not emphasis a work-life balance.

Advice to Management

Management should realize that the pay is low so most employees have another source of income and are not available to be called in on short notice. Raises would also be nice. After a year and a half of working here I still make less than $8 an hour despite stellar performance reviews.

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ~ Very flexible hours to accommodate life events / work.
    ~ Nice discount and many generous discounts throughout the year.
    ~ Great teamwork when needed.
    ~ Nice place to work if you enjoy working independantly. Expect to be a self-starter.
    ~ Ability to be cross-trained in all areas.
    ~ Volunteer events to help raise money in the community.
    ~ Company has many 'green' aspects.
    ~ Does offer benefits and 401k.

    Cons

    ~ Favoritism
    ~ Pay is above minimum wage, but not competitive.
    ~ Small raises
    ~ Hours are very sporatic during the week
    ~ If you are part-time, amount of hours you are scheduled for depend on sales. Especially during the beginning months of the year.
    ~ Not much training, you have to learn on your own.
    ~ Promotions are based on favoritism rather than skills, knowledge, or seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Lower management needs to be trained and more knowledgable than regular employees. Listen to employees about ideas.

    I worked at Kohl's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    none, there is no positives to working at this store.

    Cons

    Everybody who works there is rude to one another, EVERYBODY. I was treated with such disrespect that I had to quit my job here. Very unprofessional way of handling things, the way it is run is terribly unorganized. The managers are inconsiderate, and treat you like garbage. I even had a racial slur thrown at me. I can't believe how they have so many people working there for more than a month.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with dignity and respect. Organize your schedule and your store.
