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

    Pros

    Decent pay and good work schedule even for retail. Associate discount is an added benefit, get great discounts. Sweet deals.

    Cons

    Minimal training given. Management can suck sometimes, also turnover is pretty high so lots of time is spent training new people only to have them leave the next week.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time showing your appreciation to your associates

    Pros

    I enjoy my co-workers and my boss treats me fairly. 401K match plan for full time employees. On going training.

    Cons

    Low wages and if you are not full time the hours seem to be way under 20. Holidays seems to be the best time to work for part timers.

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

    Pros

    The management is willing to listen to help adjust schedules, and the discounts on clothing is outstanding!

    Cons

    Some of the young steff hired have no work ethic or sense of responsibility. They will either call in sick or just not show up leaving the store way understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Better compensation for the employees with longevity.

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

    Pros

    Most of my fellow associates are very pleasant and fun to be around. Management is very flexible with my weird schedule which I appreciate very much. There's usually someone always willing to help you which was good for me when I first started because it was my first real job.

    Cons

    Have been with the company for about 3 years now and make $1.50 more an hour than I did when I started. Working at the customer service desk can be a nightmare especially due to Kohl's not having much of a return policy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, the pay problem is out of their control. From what I know it is more corporate than management.
