    I worked at Kohl's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Fantastic entry level experience
    -Gain a lot of responsibility early on
    -Stable and innovative company
    -Forward thinking leaders
    -Great company culture and perks!
    -Product development is very fast paced, team oriented, and always changing.
    -Coordinators mainly work on production related tasks (70% Production, 30% Brand)
    -Analytical skills are a necessity! Sales and business analysis is a key part of this job.

    Cons

    -Work life balance has decreased over the years in PD specifically.

    Advice to Management

    -Work life balance needs to be addressed in product development. Employees' stress levels have greatly increased since I joined the company three years ago.
    -Management and managers need to embrace different personality types other than their own. You don't want to lose good people.

    I worked at Kohl's (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at the Kohls e-fulfillment center and the retail store. The e-fulfillment center was a really decent place to work at. Supervisors where cool, decent pay, great benefits, hours were okay.

    Cons

    The retail store was terrible place to work for me. When I transferred to the retail store, I was never welcomed or trained at all. I was thrown on the sales floor and had to ask for help every 5 minutes to other employees because I had no idea what I was doing. Crappy Hours, Crappy Pay, Supervisors were idiots. Just a terrible place to work at. No wonder that Kohl's was one of the Kohl's to close down!! Upland South

    Advice to Management

    Your Retail Supervisors are terrible.

    Small raise with yearly review

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, easy to request time off, dental insurance provided, takes good care of the customer, gives generous employee discounts a few times a year, super generous returns (you can return anything for any reason)

    Cons

    No guarantee of hours, too aggressive on credit which can turn off some customers, overloading employees with work, expects you to cover multiple departments at one time, racks get overfilled easily , inconsistent rules depending on which manager you get, technology often doesn't work, little training
