    Former Employee - Department Supervisor 

    I worked at Kohl's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They encourage room to grow into higher positions Benefits for full time employees are decent Overall friendly company to work for

    Cons

    No matter your position, the job boils down to being face to face with retail which means you'll never escape rude customers and holidays in the store.

  2. "Runs like most retail stores"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Department Supervisor 

    I worked at Kohl's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Able to have a flexible schedule, can change hours whenever there was a change in schedule, easy to get more shifts depending on the season

    Cons

    Like most retail stores, can get understaffed and have customers creating a mess of the products; depending on the manager, staff feels taken care of and do their work well, otherwise the staff can feel stressed and overworked

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Kohl's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stacking discounts are the best. Easy to get hired even if you have a bad record.

    Cons

    the management thinks that you need to work harder with less help or no help, no proper help in the department, management gives too many tries to unreliable workers, Employees are not held reliable to their constant poor work ethic, management wants you to talk to you on your unpaid break about work.

    I worked at Kohl's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are NONE to mention unless you desire to be underpaid, overworked and underappreciated!

    Cons

    PAY- $9.50 per hour is slave labor rates these days. All competition (Walmart, Target, JC Penny, etc.) pays $12.00 to start with no experience. AMAZON RETURNS- this sucks. Amazon gets to reduce its labor costs from $15.00 per hour by "using" Kohl's employees who are paid $9.50 per hour. Very nice Mr. Bezos. Thank you so much Kohl's for screwing your employees by doubling their work, not giving them ANY INCENTIVES, and adding all the additional responsibilities which you do NOT LOGISTICALLY SUPPORT!!!! The work is complete crap, additional duties and double/triple duties abound, and all of this is completely unsupported by Kohls. DO NOT return your Amazon items to Kohl's as there is a 1 week delay with their trucks. Better yet, abuse Kohl's Amazon system by shopping online with Amazon for the same item you can get at Kohl's, return it to Kohl's, and get a 25% discount at Kohl's for the same item. KOHL's- it's all about the credit folks..that is why you are hassled endlessly by cashiers and have to stand in line so long for your purchases. It's because the only thing Kohl's cares about is signing you up for their credit card at 26%+ interest! DO NOT DO THIS! Customer service is non-existent as there are not enough employees in each store (UNDERSTAFFING IS RAMPANT) and logistically, the company does NOT support their staff. There are frequent shortages of supplies and equipment to do the job- so associates leave employment in droves, and go to better organizations with more pay and better working conditions. This is the absolute WORST job I've ever had, and I'm so glad I went to TARGET!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kohl's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworkers are almost always excellent people Good job for people who want to be hired easily and kill time for a year before finding something else. Everyone should experience retail

    Cons

    Awful scheduling because corporate doesn't allow stores any budget for full staffing. Management is sub-par at best. Inventory is always either overstocked or understocked; company wastes tons of resources on items that have never sold and will never sell. Sales plan that drove success has changed and this is not acknowledged by corporate, who continues to add high-ticket brand items to a store that customers only want to find deals at.

    I have been working at Kohl's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent hours, especially around the holidays

    Cons

    There’s not a lot of opportunities for advancement, and if you do move up you’ll be making significantly less than an outside hire in the same position

    Disocunts throughout the year are great, sick time, PTO, other benefits for full time.

    Cons

    Still haven't gotten PTO after a year of full time employment, management is all over at times, push a lot on credit selling, customer base is rude and demanding.
