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

Pros

Many Long Term Associates. Employees very loyal.

Cons

With closures, and realignments, many store managers get shifted from one location to another. In order to survive as an organization the need to bring "new blood". You have shifted failed leaders in one location to another.
Hiring from the outside for Assistant Managers, makes me wonder why they haven't properly groomed and created a bench for people to step up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Our company has the lowest dollar per square foot spent in the maintenance and appearance in our stores. I understand that it is necessary to reduce costs, and control expenses, but the customer is telling us what they want, by shopping elsewhere. They want competitive prices, helpful service, in a clean friendly environment.
