Is our economy really that screwed that not only is this mess of a company STILL one of the Fortune 500, but it's among the top 200? How is that even possible? The only way I can explain it is volume, certainly not the strategy, vision, or management... — read more
Store lps are being cut in the new wave of layoffs! Sad to see some of them go! News hadn’t reported it yet!
I'm getting more and more worried. If our sales continue to be this low, I'd be surprised if we remain open for more than a month, two at the max. Is this specific to my location or is this happening throughout the entire company? I knew things were... — read more
The arrival of Sephora at Kohl’s, what do you think about it? What good can this bring to this company? I was honestly really surprised when I found out about it, at first I thought it was just a rumor that will never be realized.
Former Kohl’s LP executive who is still in the know has mentioned to expect more LP cuts. The last around impacted regional LP and and some district level. This round will be more significant impacting district LP along PNW, CA, Southwest.
Despite the huge loss that Kohl’s had last year, the CEO is “extremely confident” in the company’s outlook. As an ordinary employee, I am not so confident when I read that full year net sales are down 20%. I'm not sure if there is room for... — read more
Is there any truth to them?
Will companies choose to rehire laid-off employees or hire new ones? the indications are that it will offer loans or other assistance to companies to rehire workers who have been furloughed or laid off over the last nine... — read more
Thoughts? Any Kohls Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Last round of layoffs doesn’t seem to have improved anything. Would think there will be another round of layoffs early 2021 if not sooner. The increase in credit events is very telling of the desperation. Being a non-essential retailer in a... — read more
These are sad days for me personally and for the company. I've been laid off together with hundreds of coworkers. Most are left without a steady financial means to support their families, pay their bills, put food on the table... I’m sure some of us... — read more
Kohl’s has way too many high level people commanding large salaries making cost cutting decisions to save their own bonuses. I’ve seen the president and her marketing minions completely redecorate their corporate offices to the tune of hundreds of... — read more
I am not shocked by Kohl's layoffs. This has been coming at them like a train. When the pandemic hit, they closed their stores temporarily and lost tons of money...so much that they took out a gigantic line of credit to try to stay afloat. Their... — read more
Is anybody else surprised to see major media coverage of these layoffs?
It seems like layoffs are done for now, but it would be nice to get confirmation. My heart goes out to those impacted, especially during this pandemic-caused economic crisis. I truly wish for each and every one of you to find better employment much... — read more
I am from Milpitas, CA digital office. We know many people impacted Tech Manager/Project Manager and Release teams.
Heard there is another round of layoffs at Kohls HQ that started this morning. Don’t know details yet
I just read an article with some interesting observations why consumers skipped the shopping malls and shopped at our off-mall competitors instead during the lockdown. Even before the global health crisis we could see that trend. I wonder if we can... — read more
Been hearing of more folks being let go. Nothing has been published but I know of a couple, for sure. Does anyone know the extent of this new round?

How much cash do we have? A month or two? Six?
A furlough is not the same as a layoff. You are still an employee and until they fire you, you will still be called back to work.
I know we are all still reeling from the news, but I'm not worried. It might take a month or two, but we'll be back at work and this will be behind us. In the meantime, there are plenty of options to help us get through this financially. Just make... — read more
What a shock... It happened so quickly. Out of nowhere.
In 2019, Michelle Gass salary was over $12.2 million which is almost 850X what the average Kohl's employee is paid at $9 per hour or about $12,000 per year. The average sales manager makes $29,000 per year or about $13 per hour . She is not taking a... — read more
Due to Coronavirus, all contractors are being let go.
What can you share? Is it hard?
Any opinions? Discuss it here?
Severance is based on years of service, but they just changed the policy on it a few months ago, so now those laid off are getting less severance.

Emails starting to go out to teams impacted
