The people that I work with are always happy to help and work together as a team. We have the bare minimum which when we are busy can become quite hectic. Sometimes it can be satisfying but most of the time it’s not - especially when we have call... — read more

I haven't heard any rumors about more layoffs or closing, but I was curious how Kohl's handles severance? Who is eligible and how much is the payout? Are there any other benefits included or is it just the severance itself? I'm just trying to stay... — read more
“In 2021, we delivered all-time record earnings per share, significantly ahead of our expectations. Our operating margin of 8.6% exceeded our 2023 goal two years ahead of plan, a direct result of our efforts to restructure the business to be more... — read more
Any idea how the offer the activist hedge fund Starboard Value made would affect us? I heard that whenever activist investors get involved, cost cuts follow. In this case, that would most likely mean more store closings and more layoffs. Am I right... — read more
That is, how many stores could be closed due to the likely acquisition? Ah, I should have left earlier.
What they be? Ohio specifically if ya know
My New Year's resolution is to find a workplace where I won't have to get yelled at by rude customers all day long. It wasn't like this before but things have changed so much, especially the customers, and now I have to take verbal - bordering on... — read more
Target is paying its employees an extra $2 per hour during the peak holiday season. It's also making sure to give more hours to its employees rather than hire as many seasonal workers. What are the chances Kohl's will do something like that? I'm... — 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
This place is he-l! Work/life balance simply doesn't exist. The management keeps taking and taking from you until you're ready to break and then they decide to get rid of you for whatever reason they can think of (usually pure bu-----t!) Anything is... — read more
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?
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
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
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
Is anybody else surprised to see major media coverage of these layoffs?
She is the best thing that has happened to Kohls in a looooong time! Let's hope the Midwest Mentality doesn't hold her back!
Heard there is another round of layoffs at Kohls HQ that started this morning. Don’t know details yet
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?
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
Any opinions? Discuss it here?
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
How much cash do we have? A month or two? Six?
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
Today, we restructured parts of our organization to create a more customer-centric focus and position Kohl's for long-term success. This reorganization in our business will empower decision-making, reduce management layers, streamline communications... — read more
What can you share? Is it hard?
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.
Due to Coronavirus, all contractors are being let go.
Kohl's is removing about 250 jobs and reorganizing some of its senior management, according to Women’s Wear Daily. Executive VP of Product Development Michael Gilbert and Senior VP Design and Trend Chris Kolbe are said to be two of the departing... — read more
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.
What do you think?
