How do you feel about your work place?

I have worked retail since I was 14 and when I had my first child at 24 I chose to be a SAHM. When necessity drove me to get a part time job I thought about going back to one of my previous jobs, but the hours just weren't right for me. I then started brain storming about places I like to shop. The Edmond Kohls popped into my head and I decided to call them. They had an opening in the Ad Set team, and the hours were perfect for me. 8-12pm which would let me spend time with my kids before the go to bed at 8pm. It was a match and I started right away. I loved it, the job was great and the social interaction I got from other adults was much needed. (I know you other SAHM's know what I mean) :) But I never expected for a company to treat ME so good. For every holiday they order food, pizza, subs or Italian. If they ask people to volunteer for an extra shift they bring in food to say thanks to the employees. But to top it off yesterday on Mothers Day I went in for my shift and surprise!!! Kohls had bought every mom employee a corsage!!! What?!?! Are you kidding me? I am still shocked! I told my manager Ron that the way Kohls treats their employees was just ridiculous! In a good way of course lol! It doesn't take much to make me feel important, and Kohls has gone over and above my expectations. So I want to say a big thank you to Kohls! To all the other companies that are reading this take a page from Kohls example. A little TLC goes a long way!
