    I worked at Kohl's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Their is nothing positive about this company.

    Cons

    Aweful; employees are rude and discriminate your age, managers are rude and sexist, and the company tries to set people up to steel. They don’t allow you to work and go to school at the same time, and you can’t move up in the company. They won’t allow you to switch departments; they don’t allow men to work the make-up department, even though you might have a degree and have work at other makeup locations. And your raise is based on how you work, the most you can get for a raise is $0.25.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, team based, some managers are awesome, ver friendly fellow staff, never too boring, great discounts at 15% off which can be attacked on any other discounts.

    Cons

    Wage starts out low. Not easy to move up to new or better positions, push for store credits on everyone even if it isnt in your job description.

    Advice to Management

    Have communication with all of your employees and treat them all fairly, try to have a relationship with all our the majority of the employees.

    Pros

    Discount
    Friendly co workers

    Cons

    Managers would shame you for not meeting the credit goal.

    The customers are always right even when they are scamming. The customers got away with everything and the managers made us look foolish in front of the customers.

    Managers would pick and choose which rules will apply and won’t apply when it came to customers, store policies, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Do not choose favorites as far as employees. Have more respect for your employees. You used to be in their shoes a short time ago. Always follow the store policies/guidelines.

    Pros

    Kohls has a lot of seasonal jobs available to pick up some extra hours.

    Pros

    Overall, I found every single employee I met and interacted with to be very pleasant (one exception) and the atmosphere was very inviting.

    Cons

    They apparently have bought into Kronos for their scheduling and that’s all one has access to manage a schedule. The problem is, IT DOES NOT WORK. It’s not broken, it doesn’t work! Clearly, the scheduling app that Kohl’s promotes in all its orientation and propaganda materials is a broken, non-functioning joke.

    Advice to Management

    Because you fully promote Kronos as the go-to app for every aspect of an employee’s scheduling needs, why not fix it? It’s a disgrace that you hand your employees a tool that does not work and then direct them to use it, exclusively, for their scheduling. Kronos is one issue. The other is that you shouldn’t hire someone and then NOT give them a schedule. Bad. Very bad.

    Pros

    The discount that you are able to stack is nice. Also you are usually able to adjust your schedule to fit your needs.

    Cons

    The benefits for full time employees are very disappointing. Vacation time is a joke with the way that they distribute it. The management expects you to do 10 things at once and still get everything done. They run on a cutthroat budget for scheduling people and management gets bonuses if there is payroll remaining so they work the least amount of people they have to death to line their own pockets.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to underpay your employees at least appreciate the work that they do and have better leadership development for those in leadership roles. If management doesn’t work with their employees to keep both parties happy and productive then nothing will work.

    Pros

    I have no pros for this company.

    Cons

    Managers are disrespectful and should stay out of the personal lives of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional and don't gossip about your employees.
