    Great friendly environment, very low wage and minimal hours though

    Current Employee - Cashier in Clearwater, FL (US)

    I have been working at Kohl's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People are quite happy working there, the team is really involved and management is excellent with staying on top of things and ensuring everyone knows what is going on. Help is always a few steps away and for the most part, customers are quite pleasant too!

    Cons

    Sporadic scheduling. I'll work 8 hours one week and 30 another. Very unreliable scheduling though they do work around your own flexibility. I would like to work more hours and the tiny pay is certainly nothing to smile about. I make just over minimum wage and I've been in retail/customer service for 12 years. It's a slap in the face to my skill level and accomplishments in the work field. For a multi million dollar corporation, you'd think they would at least make an attempt to pay people a competitive wage. I'm 30 and make the same amount as a 16 year old. It's insulting. Also, the 15% employee discount is usually LESS than what customers get. We get it more frequently, but I cringe giving 30% off to customers and they get better deals and perks than I do as an associate. I believe we should get 20% to be fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees based on experience, skill level and accomplishments... Not just your bare minimum. I love working at Kohls, but I'll be jumping on another job that will pay me what I deserve to make.

    I worked at Kohl's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hassle free returns, Store discounts, email discounts, senior citizen discounts once a week.

    Cons

    Selective mailing system where all the good coupons never reach my house, ever! Poor training of associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your associates should be trained on other things beyond how to use a register. They need to learn good customer service.
