Department store that likes to underpay workers. Starting them out at $6.50 an hour. Giving them a 25 cent raise after 90 days and a small yearly raise. The management at Kohls are not on the same page and things never get done correctly to anothers liking. Idiots work here, people who decide to put a combination lock on the dock door that reaches a truck, but never bother to tell another person the combination. The manager decides to try and call the store manager, only to yell at the dock workers for just standing around. The reason, they have nothing to do is because she won't let them break the lock off. Slave drivers, who make there employees steal palletes from other stores and go outside in the cold while they are nice and warm. The managers mostly eat, put on makeup, do their nails, and fix their hair. The managers are all women, because the store is sexist. A place where they make you stay past 12 midnight.
The managers always doing there nails and making up stupid rules like they just read the handbook today. I bet you went shopping at Kohls today.

A low-end clothing store trying to pass itself off as a high-end fashion boutique where customers are harassed by cashiers to sign up for the awful Kohl's credit card. The cashiers themselves are harassed by managers to harass the customers, with hour cuts and even job termination if the cashiers don't beg, argue, and hound the customers to ruin their credit score by applying for an unwanted credit card. Essentially the cashiers are rewarded or punished for the luck of the draw on customers who will or won't apply when they check out. Kohls is known for having extreme mark-ups that they call "sales"' such as marking a k-cup pack as 17 dollars (when every other store sells them for 10) and then putting it on sale at 13 which is still 3 dollars more than the original price. And the managers are so incompetent that even when another employee tells them that you can't enter a gift card as a coupon on a post-sale adjustement they do it anyway and end up shorting the customer 5 dollars. Also when their shitty medical coverage wont pass the new Affordable Care Act they cancel all health insurance for non-managers and send their employees a nice letter saying "tough luck you don't have medical coverage, hope you can find a way to be insured". Also the store never has ac so be prepared to sweat your butt off in the dressing rooms and see cashiers fanning themselves with credit applications and gulping water from dasani bottles to stay cool.
James: Hey I thought you were getting some clothes from Kohl's?
Ellie: After I kept telling them over and over I didn't want a Kohl's charge and they kept asking me even after i said no like three times I threw my stuff on the counter and left. Lets go to JCP instead.

A department store that sells clothing, shoes, housewares, bath, toys, and bedding. Although a nice store that sometimes has great prices during sales, they only care about opening new charge cards could care less about ruining peoples' credit scores. You'll get great deals if you're responsible with your charge card, but have ridiculous exclusions that don't include "prestige brands" such as Nike, which is something that no athlete wants to hear.

As an employee, you'll have to put up with inconsistent hours, managers with little to no people skills, and impossible deadlines to get things done. One week, you'll get 30+hours and less than 5 the next week. The managers scold you and make demands instead of talking to you like you're a human being (probably because they don't have a life or any friends outside of Kohls). When you're in a bind, they will state the obvious and do nothing to help you, yet obliviously continue to make demands. The managers will also push you very hard to get things done in a very short period of time.
Person 1: Let's go to Kohls!
Person 2: Okay! Kohls is a department store that sells clothing, shoes, housewares, bath, toys, and bedding.

A code word for having a bowel movement. Originated from a coworker going to the Kohls store each day to have his bowel movement. Thus, going to "Kohls" was coined.
Going to "Kohls", John said. Hope everything comes out OK, Jack replied.
