Former Employee - Operations Manager in New Brunswick, NJ

I worked at Kmart full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Benefits- Great People- Salary Good , Most people are decent and go out of their way to help you.

Cons

Lack of work-life balance- Paper pushing is excessive- leaving not enough time to get the actual work done- high expectations with limited resources made available to you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring on some real merchants and stop flip flopping on most issues. Reduce the amount of proceedures and documents that have to be produced. Save a Tree!!!

    The management at Kmart in Northeast Philadelphia need to learn how to treat their employees with respect including the people who actually work hard at their job,and to stop playing favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together. While in management I was expected to do it all with no payroll whatsoever. I had just enough people to 'run' the floor without getting all of the projects done that came down from corporate. District Manager did not want to hear excuses. He was probably under just as much pressure as the rest of us.

    It was a good place to work when I hired in. Now I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
