I have been working at Kmart part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

If you're new to retail, you learn the basics of sales as merchandising.

Cons

Not enough hours, expensive benefits, and no challenge or opportunity for advancement for a seasoned worker.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tackle sales goals in more efficient ways so each store has a bigger budget for payroll. This direction of the company is unclear and there is no sense of the future.

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

    Pros

    good employees, decent work level, flexible schedule.

    Cons

    almost zero percent chance of ever getting a raise, only good for extra income, cannot make a career out of it, a lot of pressure on getting credit card applications (even when the customer says no- keep asking).

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

    Pros

    Work is routine and easy.

    Cons

    Management belittles you and does not help, rampant associate misconduct on floor, unprofessional environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you are called to customer service, layaway, etc... please have a sense of urgency and come right away or let us know you are on your way. Customers should not have to wait 20 minutes to speak to management. Also, recognition is key to keep employees! Take time out recognize professional behavior and great work ethic, not only when something is wrong.
