Approves of CEO

Pros

For me working freight, they have flexable work schedules. For example, if I had an exam I can fill out paperwork to NOT be scheduled during that week.

Cons

LOW PAY AND FEW HOURS !!! To get 30hrs a week, you have to know several jobs well, to be able to work the cash register, floor, and back room.

Advice to Management

$.50 a year pay increase, I recognize it is a low paid industry, but $.50 a year increase would be nice.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are good and it really is a great place to work. Associate discounts are used on everything, including clearance, which doesn't happen everywhere.

    Cons

    Out of the two stores I've worked at, I've noticed a lot of differences between them, so in the event you transfer, you'll probably have to be re-trained.

    Advice to Management

    Kohl's is a pretty well-run and organized company, although sometimes management seems to fail at communication, but that's not too hard to get around without a little bit of persistence.

    Pros

    I enjoy working with the people on my team, with the exception of Management
    Wages are above minimum wage
    Convenient Commute

    Cons

    Management is condescending to employees, esp. the HR Manager!!
    Schedules are changed with little notice to employees and there is no consistency to the way hours are scheduled -- 20 hours one week and 4 hours the next
    Big Communication gaps between Managemnt and Employees
    Managment doesn't treat it's employees with any kind of respect

    Advice to Management

    Management Training is needed for your existing managers!!
    Strive to work out fair work schedules for your existing employees rather than continuing to hire additional associates,
