  • Business casual is always best at the Corporate level.

  • dress in business casual attire, be neat and clean

  • Your best bet is business professional for any interview. This would be a suit and tie for guys and nice professional outfit for ladies. The job dress code may be business casual but for the interview over dressed is better than under.

  • It's retail, it's not always easy.

  • Depends on if you're asking for PTO or just if they allow days off in general. PTO is really only offered for full time positions. Seasoned part time people who've worked for the company a while, were offered PTO but they've cut the availability for most part time and seasonal positions. They also only allow time off for certain times in the year.

Asked to all employees at Kohl's

  • Yes, I can only answer for Corporate. You can apply for an internal position on another team, but you have to discuss it with your manager to ensure your skills are relevant to the position you are looking at. If you're desperate to move to another team, say what you have to say to get the manager to support you because there are some managers who will be petty and find things to prevent you from applying for another position on a different team.

  • Any switch in teams will be handled by the on site management team
