    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.

    Pros

    The overall work environment is really nice. Kohl’s differs from other retail stores in that a lot of the employees are a little older so my coworkers were more mature and there wasn’t a lot of “workplace drama”. Additionally, the store gives really good discounts to employees and they can be used in conjunction with other discounts so you can definitely get really good deals.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement.
    The holiday season can be stressful and tiring.
