It is retail - I happened to have a female manager, so that was great.

The hours are good, but the company's work from home policy can be non-existent, depending on the team. If there is no option to work from home from time to time, it becomes prohibitive for women to raise families.
Maybe. The work life balance exists at the company and is a great place in that regard for working mothers. However, even with a company that is majority female, the executive level continues to be majority male.

Mobility is key if you are starting at the store level. If you are in HQ, make sure to build a solid network of leaders that you can depend on. Like all businesses, there is some politicking, so networking is key for success.

the Kohl's workplace culture encourages and promotes job flexibility. at the store level, part-time employees have some really great optional benefits, such as vision and dental benefits, and flex accounts for child care and medical needs.

October 2016

I worked in Cosmetics as a counter manager and a beauty stylist and got up 8 weeks of 60% paid maternity leave, which was great. Since the environment is commission based, it was difficult to be a breastfeeding/pumping mother when I came back, as time away from the floor was looked down on. Sales floor was very competitive, as jobs are constantly threatened if goals are not met. Rarely were people actually fired though--it is used more as a scare tactic. Gay men were given preference in every area, as the general assumption was that women would purchase more from them.
