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

Pros

The work (though repetitious) is extremely easy no matter which department you are assigned to. The pay is decent, and the employee discounts are fantastic! They maintain a clean, well maintained work environment.

Cons

While working for this company I have noticed that quite a few upper management personnel, aside from any supervisor I have come in contact with on the main floor, are quick to undermine people. This mainly pertaining to the floor operations personnel. I realize that they must deal with complications involving people who are not always capable of understanding or following the rules. However, they fail to take into consideration that not every employee there has the mentality of a two year old, and thus shouldn't be treated as such. I have come into contact with several people from upper management who were extremely rude and quick to play the part of a prison warden. I believe that when correcting someone, it should be addressed in a respectful, and more private manner. Especially when they are fully aware that new people aren't often the most knowledgeable of their surroundings.

There is also Insufficient lack of training and information with this company.

Advice to Management

Please treat your employees with respect.

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

    Pros

    They'll take anybody. If you desperately need money, apply here.

    Cons

    They'll take anybody. Interview process is insulting and meant to reduce you to being just another replaceable cog in their money machine. Pathetic pay with completely irrational and unrealistic expectations of performance. Cliques and favoritism. Open resentment and hostility from permanent, long-term, full-time employees towards temporary, part-time holiday hires. Zero training, zero communication, zero responsibility for either. Hours/days availability completely ignored by scheduler. Forced to take breaks with "your group" instead of when you actually need a break - eating your meal only 90 minutes after clocking in, then being made to stand and work (much of it consisting of lifting heavy boxes and stock) in a hot, dry store for 6 hours straight with NO water, food or restroom breaks without a manager's permission. Managers are never to be found. WAY to much stock comes in every few days and there's no place to put it - store is a perpetual mess, and It's only made worse by greedy, ungrateful, non-stop chaos-creating jerk customers.

    Advice to Management

    What management? It's a heartless, clueless plutocracy.
