No opinion of CEO

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)

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great, but a lot of paperwork to get one thing done.

    Cons

    Very departmentalized, dress code is ridiculous. Hard to communicate on a personal level as everything is done through email & there is much miscommunication.

    Advice to Management

    Let people cross train & be involved.
