I worked at Kmart part-time for less than a year

Pros

Nice break room, co workers easy going. the work was not that hard and it was a good start for a resume. Could wear mostly casual clothes to work

Cons

no pay increases, job was tedious and sometimes stressful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Walmart is tearing you apart, you either have to offer better prices or better publicity

    I worked at Kmart full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Friendly staff (not managers)
    - 10% employee discount

    Cons

    - In my 2+ years of experience I received plaques and certificates verifying that I had good sales and customer service skills, but never received a raise.
    - The company downsized and within a week got rid of half their employees, showing that we were more of an expendable resource for them.
    - There is no communication between members of management.
    - Seniority ranks higher than skill or knowledge, with the managers taking thirty to forty minutes to help a customer when called for, and more often then not simply dismissed the customer's concerns or complaints.
    - No room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get new management, people who can do the job

    Pros

    None, nothing at all bad!

    Cons

    Everything, this company expects so much, but they don't know how to treat their associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of u need to get fired and go back to school on how to handle customer service, and most of all how to treat ur associates.
