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

    Pros

    Never bored, you will always be doing something. People who work there are super nice and willing to help.

    Cons

    Can be overwhelming, not the type of job for someone who gets stressed easily. Not a lot of sense of accomplishment. Customers can be rude and unforgiving.

    Pros

    Very flexible, no need to work too much

    Cons

    This company is run by a business guy, rather than a tech person. For that reason, a lot of energy is put in the wrong places.

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

    Pros

    I was hired for a seasonal position, and management, as well as employees, were mostly nice and helpful when I had any questions. The store was really nice and had a large variety of items.

    Cons

    The supervisor for the particular job I had couldn't seem to care less to fully show me how to do the job, and was rather rude when I asked questions. It seems like the kind of job that you really shouldn't screw up, and I was left to try figuring things out on my own a lot, which resulted in filling some orders slowly. Another con would be scheduling for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I understand needing to be available, which I was, but I had less than eight hours between my two shifts. And I was given my meal break late on Black Friday, which gave a mark against me out of three before they would terminate me for not following policy. This was not my fault since the store was very busy, and I had reminded the leader more than once I was going to be late clocking out.

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure the supervisors of areas are properly training the new employees. Try to establish a little more order in scheduling and with employees during busy days so there are enough people to cover breaks and meals.

    Pros

    Strong leadership throughout the company. Team oriented environment. Rewards a high work ethic.

    Expectations often unrealistic. Compensation for the part timers is not always competitive. Not a good job if you get stuck with a weak store manager.

    Advice to Management
