Approves of CEO

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

Pros

-I don't know of any other retailer that gives management every other weekend off.
-Competitive salary for college grads new to the career world
-MIT program
-Paid salary during training
-Paid relocation
-The company is very innovative, always looking for new technologies and resources to improve the day to day functions of the store

Cons

-Though work life balance is a plus with Kohl's, it's still retail. Long and inconsistent hours will always be a part of the job.

Advice to Management

The company as a whole needs to be less "conservative" with payroll.

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

    Pros

    Fun building a team of part-timers, few full-timers, different backgrounds, experience etc.
    Easy to beat credit goals, fun to beat customer service scores.

    Cons

    After having spent 10+ years at another big box retailer, was surprised and confused at the micro-managing of the DM. For example blow out a credit acquisition goal on a Saturday but get a call Monday not congratulating on performance, but asking about why PT associate (always anonymous) called DM because they had to work recovery for an hour after store closed. Completely unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    The DM was fired after I left. I can understand the DM keeping his/her finger on the pulse of their stores, but let the SM do the job you hired them to do.

    Pros

    you get a good discount, other emloyees are very friendly and helpful, part-time employees can get health care benefits

    Cons

    they over hire, virtually impossible to get even 20 hours weekly making it impossible to get the health benefits
