I have been working at Kohl's as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Easy; not very challenging. Coworkers are generally pleasant and easy to interact with.

Cons

No opportunity for advancement unless you're in management. Low pay, no benefits for contractors. Keep temps on for either very short or extended periods versus hiring qualified workers. Constant IT issues that slow productivity.

Advice to Management

Offer benefits for long-term contractors.

    Pros

    Flexibility in my work schedule.

    Cons

    Nights and Weekends are a must as are most holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Trying to get more done with less associates isn't feasible. Technology improves processes, but there are still customers coming in to the stores. Online shopping has increased returns, yet customer service is understaffed. How can you expect a store to get a satisfactory grade oh "associate readily available" when it calls for only one person to be scheduled for 3 departments?


  2. "I enjoy working for this company, but that being said the lean staff to accomplish projects can make it frustrating."

    Pros

    They have great benefits and do a good job focusing on their Associates to understand what they want and need.

    Cons

    It can be very emotionally and physically draining when teams operate with such a lean staff both in store and at corporate.

    Advice to Management

    The company is constantly changing which a great company does, however, remember that change doesn't happen overnight and constant change upon change creates Associates that are unclear on priorities, processes and goals.
