I have been working at Kmart

Pros

the employee discount is about the only good thing about working for this company also the non manager associates are great to work with

Cons

management sucks, they think they are better than anyone else in the store. expectations are way to high,i mean you get what you pay for right,they treat us like they are paying us $15/hr

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. maby you should pay people that actually work a little bit more than people that stand at a regester
2. hire better managers
3. managers should have to work too,kmart is retail,the number 1 thing for any retail place is customer service.if a customer asks me a question and i don't know the answer and go to a manager for help, they are not to say"it's in your job discription to help customers" i thought customer service was in everyones job discription

    Pros

    Decent Benefits, good starting salary for managers. Depending on your store manager it is easy to get time off.

    Cons

    I have worked for Kmart for 2 years, and I must say it has been the worse 2 years of my life. Just as I was graduating from college I was approached about an assistant manager job. The salary was decent, I made more than most of my friends who were graduating with me. I read other reviews online about how bad Kmart is but the money drew me in. Kmart upper-level management has absolutley NO consideration for store level management. The store I am in has changed managers 7 times in 3 years, this should be an indicator. Also out of 4 people who started with me I am the only 1 left, and am looking to leave ASAP. I would not reccommend this company to anyone. They promise you decent work hours, every other weekend off, and bonuses. The bonus is a big joke! No one ever bonuses. Please do yourself a favor and run to Target.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to retain managers, by being more considerate. Recognize and appreciate the efforts of those managers on the "front line" in your stores.

    Pros

    Descent pay, clean store, honest living, the manager was pretty social and wasn't annoying like most and the pay was descent .

    Cons

    It wasn't that bad of a job but you had to be willing to step up and work quicker if someone called in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
