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

Pros

Hours are flexible. Management is respectful and appreciative. Opportunities to learn different departments and functions are abundant. If you work hard, it is recognized.

Cons

Hourly rates are a bit low compared to other, comparable stores in this area. As an associate, it can be hard to get enough hours to make it worthwhile.

Advice to Management

Nothing, really. The business model seems very sound.

    I worked at Kohl's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked over the holidays this past year. The management at my store was very friendly. Our store manager always made us feel appreciated. Co-workers were always willing to help out if you needed assistance. Very good customer service philosophy, very clear expectations.

    Cons

    Often there was not enough coverage in departments, we were expected to perform multiple jobs around the store, minimum wage pay, very long store hours around the holidays, hours were very unpredictable, too much emphasis placed on getting credit cards.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay and there will be less problems with retention.

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

    Pros

    The compensation packages are very competitive and the working environment is very casual and open-minded. I have not noticed much, if any, discrimination.

    Cons

    Stress levels can be very high due to the fast-paced working environment and long hours required for some positions. The opportunities to move up in the company are very few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    I'd recommend you stop taking advantage of freelance help and start adding more full time staff to offset the high workload. Create more advancement opportunities and promote from within.
