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

    Pros

    It is hard work as the flow of customers in customer service is constant. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and helping the customers.

    Cons

    I did five jobs in one and the pay was low. It wasn't just customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Change your pay scale for that position.

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time

    Pros

    Supportive of the fact that you are new and encourage questions.

    15% employee discount that can stack with pretty much any other dollar off/per cent discount.

    Managers seem to care about the store and employees.

    Cons

    1 15 minute break for 5 hour shift.

    Only got a quick "tour" of the store, and for someone that works at the cash register, it means you never really get to know where everything is unless you walk around on your own time.

    Advice to Management

    Just remember that employee morale is important for everyone to work at their best for the costumers.

    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.
