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

Pros

Large teams provide a support system. Benefits aren't the best I've seen, but they're pretty close (401K matching, vacation buyback, etc.) There are some very nice people who work there, and there are some people who do an exemplary job.

Cons

The environment is very intense, at times dog eat dog. Cross departmental communication is challenging and internal politics often get in the way of productivity. Very solid glass ceiling. Performance reviews aren't really tied to performance, but become more a cost of living increase.

Advice to Management

Take a second look at the culture shift over the last decade and try to stem the attrition by understanding and appreciating true associate performance.

    Pros

    Benefits for all employees, even part time. 401k and ESOP plan for all. Paid holidays. Promote from within.

    Not enough control of management in stores. Workload is exhausting.Credit goals are excessive.

    Advice to Management

    Balance quality of life in stores, as is Kohls guidelines. Enforce policies that store managers do not.

    I worked at Kohl's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    discount, team effort, communication
    actually the loss prevention team in the location where I worked was awesome. They did a great job! The store managers were a great group if I were talking about them outside the "work" environment

    Cons

    -not enough cashiers, always pulling associates off of floor in order to ring the register. fitting room control is a nightmare!!
    -customers allowed to bring the entire store in fitting room and it gets left on the floor for associates to clean up after.
    -favoritism
    -blind eye to associates poor work performance/bad behavior of those they "like" while micromanaging those that are new or less favored.
    - "folded on tables" merchandise..needs to be banned if you do not have enough associates to maintain them

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough associates to cover the work load. No one should be made to feel inferior when being sabotaged by a fellow associate to make herself look good.( making her side look great while putting returns and fitting room clothes in another area, which makes That associates work load impossible to complete)
