Kohls Dept Stores Gets rid of Whistle Blowers and Ethical Employess, Kohls dept stores Covers up terminations of Star employees. Hired by Kohls Dept Stores as a Store level Loss Prevention Associate, Quickly promoted to new higher producing store, Shortly after promoted to Higher volume store and make a 200% increase in shoplifter apprehensions, Kohls terminated District Loss Prevention Manager (B.G.), and promoted DLPM Cesar Cruz from upstate region.
Upon the arrival of Cesar Cruz,His racist and Sexual comments begain. Also his comments begain about lack of productivity in the 7 Kohls Stores in the district. Even when Store 417 Massapequa had a 200 % increase in apprehensions with only 1 store security associate , vs last years 3 associates managing an embarrasing 33 cases for a 12 month period. After being injured on a work related injury, ( recovering Kohls Merchandise from a Professional shoplifter), I informed the dlpm that I would be needing to attend Physical Therpy and doctors apointments, Mr, Cesar Cruz became very upset and said " What good are you to me"?, He then begain to make my job very difficult often yelling and berating me infront of other Associates, My calls and complaints to Corporate went un investigated, Mr. Cruz had also begain doing similiar to other Lp Associates who did not "go alonge with his routine", I was then informed that if I was going to go on workers comp my employment would be terminated.
I was then terminated by DLPM Cesar Cruz, and LPM Danny larossa who is now with Saks 5th ave in the Long Island District Managers Position. After my termination 5 other Lp Associates have left for several reasons, Leaving the one time Highest Producing LP Dept in the entire company, Shorthanded and useless. The following suffolk county Stores have been unstaffed due to the fact of the practices Kohls have demonstrated as well as their illegal and unethical practices.

I guess Kohls can afford to have a untrained or no staff in the following stores going into the holiday season. I have emplored the others who have met with similiar situations to file rip off reports as well and will be posted shortly after this one. Kohls Fitting room and other "special Apprehensions" border on illegal as well, and I have had serveal law suits in this region in the past 2 years which have been "settled out of courts"!!!! I have worked for several retailers in the past and rate KOHLS the # 1 Worst!!!,
Kohls Dept Stores unethical , Sneaky and employees Management who are clueless!!!,
WORK PLACE BULLIES!!!!!!
