I have been working at Kmart

Pros

Compensation for management is better than any other job that is similar.
Some good people there. Be open minded, some have gone through ups and downs with this company.

Cons

In the past it seems as though some managers got the job by luck and who they knew. Abilities and leadership just wasn't there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of you who have been there before the bankruptcy need to wake up and learn that things are changing. If you don't change with it, you are just holding back your store. Learn, communicate, and get involved.

    I have been working at Kmart

    Pros

    Kmart is a very laid back place to work, which makes it a relatively stress free environment. The tasks are easy to accomplish, and the atmosphere is welcoming. They are willing to work around personal schedules.

    Cons

    The pay is (very) low, especially in the current market. Raises are rarely given without a change in position, and the work can become somewhat monotonous. The schedules are somewhat sporadic, as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even a slight increase in wages every now and then would dramatically raise employee morale. An attempt at making the workplace more friendly, perhaps by instituting a casual day, once a month or so (even if it's just shoes) would serve to make the experience more personal.

    I have been working at Kmart

    Pros

    Great people to work with and also a customer-oriented environment. Also, the store I work with has well experienced management, with the store manager having over 25+ years under the belt working at Kmart.

    Cons

    Sometimes the traffic flow of customers can be slow, often leading to employees becoming careless and lazy. Also, if you do not enjoy doing repititious tasks, this job may not be best suited for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership of Kmart is full of well experienced associates. I attended an internship conference recently and had the opportunity to meet with the CEO as well as many of the Senior Vice Presidents. Their sound attitude and leadership skills gives me assurance that SHC will continue to succeed as one of the most reputable retailers in America.
