I have been working at Kohl's full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The store has a great team environment, one big family. Development is non-stop and the company continually looks to promote from within.

Cons

Store hours are not condusive to a healthy work-life balance. Often times executives are expected to close late (11 p.m. or later) and turn around and be back at 6 a.m. Store Manager does not seem to put as much support into the Executive team, often times leaving them to cover SM shift when the SM leaves early. Equality among the Executive team is non-existent, often times leaving 1 executive handling 80% of the load themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more interest the how happy your team really is. Offer to handle the front lines more often so the team can focus on what needs to be done and get tasks completed efficiently. Have more consideration for work-life balance for entire team and not just themselves.

    Pros

    The people really what made the drudgery of everyday work worth it.

    Cons

    You're hired for the purposes of payroll under one title then cross trained so that you can literally do everything in the store, but your pay never shows that you are a cashier/customer service/merchandiser/ad set associate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know every individual department and work on learning how it all comes together.

    Pros

    Discounts are ok and some of the people you work with are amazing at their job

    Cons

    If you are good at your job you wont get a promotion. They give it to the people that they want to keep in one spot.
