Current Employee - Retail Management Intern in Toledo, OH
Current Employee - Retail Management Intern in Toledo, OH

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

Pros

-Meaningful experience for those interested in retail or business
-You receive the same training (although condensed) as an assistant manager trainee
-High performers are give an opportunity to join the company as an assistant manager-in-training at the end of the internship. The job offer is extended for up to 1 year so you can finish your schooling
-All expenses paid trip to Hoffman Estates, IL for an internship conference. You get to tour headquarters and meet the senior leadership team
-Kmart is in the midst of a transformation... Great time to be working for SHC!
-YOU OWN YOUR INTERNSHIP!! Get out and let your managers know what you want to do with it!
-$15 per hour!

Cons

-Senior leadership is horribly out of touch with the stores... They MUST get out and see what is broken to help fix what it is wrong!
-Company is focused on web experience, but customers want better stores!
-Training for hourly associates is horrible and hourly staff is a revolving door
-The project seemed more like "busy work" and not something they genuinely cared about (The project is handled by corporate, not the store staff)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Get out to your stores and remodel them! Your core customers could care less about the internet... Obliviously, if your customers are in your store then they did want not to buy something on-line!

    Pros

    Friendly co workers, the job itself is quite easy.

    Cons

    Most hours you can expect in a week are less than 20. Don't expect a raise ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge the work and effort us cashiers put into selling their store. Raises would do wonders!
