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

Pros

Competitive pay
Above-average vacation time
Caring upper-level management (from my experience)
Great exposure opportunities for college grads

Develop your management style/techniques while working for a retailer with national notoriety. Great people with great skills reside within the organization; these people are accessible and willing to help you grow. Lots of networking opportunities, which is key in moving up in the company.

Cons

Business is profitable due to low facilities/associate payroll and high profit margins
Heavy workload
Ambiguous merchandising direction
Long, long hours

It takes a lot of extra face time to get noticed. Bad visits could really set you back, depending on how you take the criticism. There are not enough hours in a week to get everything done, which can be frustrating.

Advice to Management

More payroll, please! Stores will look better, service will be better, sales will increase, consumer/brand perception will improve. Update your technology to today's standards.
