    I have been working at Kmart full-time for less than a 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!

    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
