    Great employees. Horrible management.

    I have been working at Kmart full-time (more than an year)


    As a general rule the employees that I work with make the workplace a fun and enjoyable workplace.
    Plus catching shoplifters and dishonest employees is a rewarding job.


    Not sure if this can be generalized to the company as a whole. But at this particular location, store management has failed.
    To sum it up management is more focused on making small goals instead of fixing the the overall broken processes. So much so that management will over look the company's own policy & procedure and/or company directed playbook. Basically cutting corners.
    The company pays it's hourly associates and hourly supervisors slightly above minimum wage, yet (at least at this location) the demands expected of these employees far exceeds the compensation. When expectations are not met then corrective action is taken. Yet the corrective action taken is more akin to bullying and threats instead of actual coaching. Basically poor human resource management. This is illustrated best by how the topic of conversation for a vast majority of the employee (including ASMs) is how poor the store is being managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This advice would go to cooperate level management (regional or higher level). First off Numbers do not tell the whole story so there should be more store visits. And second. When visits occur they should be completely unannounced. Or if they do a visit, they should check payroll for the previous couple of days prior to the visit to see how much manpower was used to make the store "visit ready'. This is what would really tell them how the store is doing.
