    I have been working at Kohl's part-time

    Pros

    They have a decent employee discount and special days when it is double or more. They are flexible on scheduling. You list when you can work and when your not available.

    Cons

    The pay is average and customers can be rude and abusive. It also can be difficult to get a break if the store is busy. Also there was really no training it OJT.

    Advice to Management

    Training should be done with a buddy system for the first week the employee is scheduled and not 2 hours in Shoes and 3 hours on a register by yourself. It can be stressful and overwhelming that way.

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

    Pros

    The top management at my location was great. The work is easy and the discount goes on top of the sales which is wonderful.

    Cons

    The lower level managers are lazy and not willing to take responsibility for their jobs, nor the employees they supposed to be helping. The pay is low and you aren't scheduled for many hours at all.

    Pros

    Management is willing to help you understand, and everyone is very patient with new employees. They also make sure you get your breaks.

    Cons

    Not very good when it comes to changing your schedule after you initially give one to them. They also scheduled me for the wrong time a few times, so I ended up coming in at 6 am when I didn't need to.

    Advice to Management

    Take scheduling more seriously. As a college student, I couldn't just be at work at unreasonable hours.
