I have been working at Kohl's full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The store has a great team environment, one big family. Development is non-stop and the company continually looks to promote from within.

Cons

Store hours are not condusive to a healthy work-life balance. Often times executives are expected to close late (11 p.m. or later) and turn around and be back at 6 a.m. Store Manager does not seem to put as much support into the Executive team, often times leaving them to cover SM shift when the SM leaves early. Equality among the Executive team is non-existent, often times leaving 1 executive handling 80% of the load themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more interest the how happy your team really is. Offer to handle the front lines more often so the team can focus on what needs to be done and get tasks completed efficiently. Have more consideration for work-life balance for entire team and not just themselves.

    Assistant Store Manager

    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager  in  Chicago, IL (US)
    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Chicago, IL (US)

    I have been working at Kohl's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great starting salary for twenty somethings right out of college, good start for a first career

    Cons

    Extremely late hours, have to work six days a week during the holidays, workload is extremely overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The store will fall apart if your store manager doesn't set the standards of what the assistant store managers should be doing, store managers need to be more of a leader, not a follower.
