Kohl's can be a fun place to work but there is very little chance for career advancement
Home Department Supervisor (Former Employee) – Wood Village, OR – September 22, 2017
I worked at the District Headquarters Kohl's in the Pacific NW for 7 years. My main goal was to enter into Management so I could move up the ladder and make more money. That never happened, Kohl's changed their policies for hiring Managers-in-Training. They used to hire from within their current employee base anyone who had the interest and experience to justify moving into Management. Now, they hire Assistant Managers directly from the list of Graduates of local colleges with degrees in either Retail Management or Merchandising. Only select colleges are eligible, so check first to make sure they have a contract with Kohl's at the college of your choice. For the rest of us, it's now just another job unless you're willing to go back to college and seek a degree in either of those disciplines. Kohl's has now become only a great "temporary" place to work while you're seeking a career elsewhere that offers better advancement opportunities.
Although most employees are part time, you can often pick up more hours by taking the shifts of other employees who have requested time off, It's like a family atmosphere and you'll make a lot of good friends working at Kohl's
Often only get a handful of hours per week of scheduled time, not enough hours to justify having open availability
