"I was hired as a jewelry associate as holiday help in 2014. I worked very hard, showed up when I was scheduled and did my job. I was 1 of 10 kept after the holidays. Kohl's is a very good place to work if you simply need a little extra income but have a full time job elsewhere. I work on the average of 15 hours per week now after the holidays which is great for me. The Kohl's I work at has training videos but you don't get to use them because they by law have to pay you while you are training and they only have barely enough people to cover shifts on the floor so no extra time to train. I have talked to people that have been there for two years or more that do not know how to do anything but ring up a customer. you will be shown how to use a register and be shown things that you have to know as you go along but it is sketchy at best. This is a corporate problem but an understandable one as well. All in all, Kohl's is a great place to work for extra income but you have to be quick on picking things up because the training time just isn't there. I love working there and am trying to learn as I go."
"Poor management, employees hate working there. Get no breaks, and ask no questions. The employees make it confusing, blamed it on the newbies. The store manager acts so fake it's kind of strange. They hire and fire you in a week. $8.00/hour for slave labor. They'll try you out for a few days and then say fire you when it's not what they want that second.They wanted all my ideas on how to do things better, then suck all the info out of me and threw me out. Used me for the info. Your relationship with your supervisor, horrible. The relationship you have with your co-workers, back stabbing. Hope they're not that bad off."
"Worst place to work possible."
"I've worked at Kohl's department store in an overnight position for over five years. This position is a very good second job for the hours and pay, but I would not recommend it for a person's sole job."
"I enjoyed working for Kohl's Department Store. It was a great experience. I learned a lot of valuable things that I applied to everyday life."
"As a former employee of Kohl's, I enjoyed working at the Seal Beach location as well as the people I worked with. The staff is friendly and the customers are nice."
"I have worked for Kohl's since 2010. I believe it to be a very strong company with a strong emphasis on service and being the very best in the industry, and I enjoy being a part of that."
"I worked for Kohl's Distribution Center for 3 months in a temporary position within their RFID and RED departments. The top managers were practically unknown to me but my direct supervisor was very nice, knowledgeable and approachable."
"I have worked here for 5 years and it has been difficult to move up."
"The interview process and actually working at Kohl's corporate are very different. like a recruiter from the army and then actually working in the army. The actual culture is very 'mean girls' related. There is no support for anything that would involve conduct. And if you are below management position, you have no voice.There is no respect or consideration for how you feel. Demeaning feedback is supposed to make you feel empowered and fulfilled! Good company but everyone I know has left because of how they were treated."
"I only worked for Kohl's for a couple of months, but do not believe I was given enough training to do the job to the customer's satisfaction. I reported a problem I was having with a phone used by customers and employees and was told they would check into it. The problem was still not corrected by the time I left."
"Overall, not a bad place to work. They need to get rid of so much red tape... it really prevents anyone from moving quickly."
"So, to start out, the training is next to nothing, you get tossed on the floor not knowing anything and looking stupid because you constantly have to tell customers you don't know how to answer their questions. Half the managers don't seem to care and I've only seen the store manager maybe 4 times, he only comes out to crack the whip if we have a visit coming. We are severely understaffed and I ran around doing the work of 2-3 people with no support for horrible pay. Too much clearance!"
"The Kohls in Florence SC is awful. Mostly because of management. They could care less about their employees, bad communication and just overall not a good place to work if you want any respect. The store manager that's there now treats her employees like they are dogs, telling them to do something NOW and just speaking to them with no respect. I have heard her say that the difference between her and her employees is that the employees have to work, she on the other hand doesn't."
"One of the worst companies to work for. Worked with them for seven years, five different managers. The assistant manager is very rude. Manager doesn't say hello to staff, 7 years, 4 hours per week, it only started since this new crew of 4 took over."
