The Kmart corporation doesn't care for their employees.

I have been working at Kmart part-time for less than a year

Pros

10% discount
It's easy to get a job there.
Some of the low level employees are nice.
At my particular store there is good management.

Cons

The corporate policies are unethical. If you are sick for any reason you need a doctors note and working at Kmart means you most likely can't afford to go to the doctor.
Sears credit cards are a scam
Depending on the Kmart you work at, you could get fired for having an emergency and not being able to show up.
It's retail, you work inconvenient hours, you can plan on missing time with your families for all major holidays except Christmas.
Benefits are a joke because they will not pay you enough to get them.
They expect you to sell Sears Credit Cards which customers do not want and ask a lot of questions.

    I worked at Kmart part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    you can get paid to literally do nothing

    Cons

    no raises EVER
    minimum wage
    terrible management
    just closed 120 stores and will probably close all together one day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't talk to employees like they're crap and give out some kind of raise so we have a reason to actually want to work hard.
