    Pros

    They'll take anybody. If you desperately need money, apply here.

    Cons

    They'll take anybody. Interview process is insulting and meant to reduce you to being just another replaceable cog in their money machine. Pathetic pay with completely irrational and unrealistic expectations of performance. Cliques and favoritism. Open resentment and hostility from permanent, long-term, full-time employees towards temporary, part-time holiday hires. Zero training, zero communication, zero responsibility for either. Hours/days availability completely ignored by scheduler. Forced to take breaks with "your group" instead of when you actually need a break - eating your meal only 90 minutes after clocking in, then being made to stand and work (much of it consisting of lifting heavy boxes and stock) in a hot, dry store for 6 hours straight with NO water, food or restroom breaks without a manager's permission. Managers are never to be found. WAY to much stock comes in every few days and there's no place to put it - store is a perpetual mess, and It's only made worse by greedy, ungrateful, non-stop chaos-creating jerk customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Kohl's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hassle free returns, Store discounts, email discounts, senior citizen discounts once a week.

    Cons

    Selective mailing system where all the good coupons never reach my house, ever! Poor training of associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your associates should be trained on other things beyond how to use a register. They need to learn good customer service.
