    I have been working at Kohl's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Kohl's has recognized and enhanced the skills and knowledge that I brought to the company. I really appreciate the teamwork mentality, understanding that each leader does not need to be the expert on every aspect of the business.

    I am given the opportunity to work on projects that play to my strengths and that I truly enjoy. I am frequently given the creative license to run with my ideas and when things do not go according to plan, the feedback I am given is always constructive.

    As a manager, I truly care about the success of my Associates and I feel the same from my management team.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance may vary by manager.

    I worked at Kohl's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot about the business and information services. Got ample of opportunities to expand my IT skills with every couple of years taking on different roles.

    Cons

    Normal office politics. To excel, got to have enough people in the right place to fight for you. Could have done a better job at training to keep individual's knowledge relevant to emerging technologies.

    Advice to Management

    As other organization, keep employees engaged and growing with relevancy.

    I have been working at Kohl's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Nice corporate campus with new expanded cafeteria.

    Cons

    Your experience can vary greatly depending on the department you work in. I've worked in a few. One was great, one was okay, and one is the most toxic environments I've ever experienced. Terrible corporate politics and favoritism. Shockingly in this day and age, gender discrimination is still happening. Very frustrating to be treated like less than because of gender and personality.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce middle managers. Stop empire building. Promote based on work history rather than who brown noses the most. Train leaders how to manage. Train leaders to discourage harassment rather than allow it to run rampant. Enforce HR policies instead of just posting them on the intranet and never following them.

    My management team genuinely cares about me. The company cares about the community as well.

    Cons

    While working on being one team, departments aren't always on the same page...yet.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and nice employees,

    Cons

    Very stressful when you're the only one available in 3 departments which happens often, sometimes put into departments you know nothing about, have to answer questions a customer has about a product that you know nothing about, low pay for much of the work that has to be done on the daily

    Advice to Management

    Put more people in department because listening for 3 departments and cleaning out the fitting rooms is very stressful. Also, increase the pay.
