    I worked at Kmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job that pays with good hours while at school.

    Cons

    Was told after I came back from winter break I was being moved to the floor to work. When I got back they had already hired someone else because it was such a long break. Which would have been fine except for the fact no one told me anything and I had to find out they hired someone by asking a co-worker.

    Advice to Management

    If you say you are moving someone, move them, or at least tell explain to them why you can't.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Kmart (Norridge, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Got called back after 6 days. The interview was really short. The lady that interviewed me was so nice! It only took 5 minutes or so. She actually only asked "Tell me about yourself" and then she asked for my availability, past jobs which I had none because this would be my first job. After all that, she hired me on the spot!

Attention Kmart shoppers: Kmart is the #3 discount retailer in the US, behind Wal-Mart and Target. It sells name-brand and private-label goods (including its Joe Boxer and Jaclyn Smith labels), mostly to low- and mid-income families.

About 270 Kmart stores sell home appliances (including Sears' Kenmore brand) and some 980 locations house in-store pharmacies. Poor sales have forced its parent, Sears Holdings Corp., to close 100 to 120 Kmart and ... More
