Kohl's Employee

"I worked for Kohls 3 years. The supervisors/managers tend to put a lot of pressure on the employees to meet unreal expectations and when they did, they were not compensated for their hard work. The best part of the job was seeing the smile of a satisfied customer, and coworker friendship."

"Pros: co-workers are awesome, flexibility, discounts.Cons: pay/non-consistent hours.After working on the registers for a while I have to say I do feel like a robot by the end of the day. Your salary is too low for everything you have to say to a customer.It's a fun environment, everyone gets along with everyone, discounts are great, but unfortunately I watch people cheat the system every day! I forgot my 30% coupon at home. I hear it all the time!"

Kohl's Employee

"I started with this company as a part time job in 2004, but it had become one of my jobs after I was downsized from my full time job in 2005.Opportunities come few and far between. After being promoted to Operations supervisor and transferring to my third store, I realized that retail is not the area I wanted to pursue and is not a match for my managerial skills"

Kohl's Employee

"This isn't a bad company to work for, but there is no management. People don't know what to do usually. Managers are hard to get a hold of and sometimes they don't even know what is going on. The store manager is never available or at the store usually. She doesn't communicate with her managers. There is just too many Indians and not enough chiefs as the saying goes."
