    I have been working at Kmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Part time, you can dictate what hours and when you are available for work. Easy work, team environment, some paid holidays.

    Cons

    You are required to work at least 4 hours every holiday such as thanksgiving, black Friday, Christmas, new years days. Also it is a short term employment opportunity with little chance of promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees more job opportunities for advancement. Have consistent and competitive wages available.Perhaps create a job board and allow employees to bid on higher paying jobs.

    I have been working at Kmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    This store has a number of long time customers who are some of the best in the world. It also has a lot of awesome employees, hard-working, loyal people, who are shell-shocked from dealing with the demands of some of the worst of the Hardin County customer base. They rally, support each other, and dig in day after day to achieve superior results.

    Cons

    There are a number of customers whom this Kmart could do without. They are entitled, belligerent, and believe that the more loud, vulgar and rude they are, the more merchandise they can walk out of the store with. They have been so indulged and appeased over the last couple of years that they are confident in walking into the store and making life miserable for the people they expect to serve them.

    Advice to Management

    The new Manager of this location needs to take control and enforce the existing Kmart policy against tolerating rude, aggressive and threatening customers and start banning some people. These employees need to be empowered so that they can be happy and thrive in a safe work environment. Only then can this store survive instead of being controlled by the foul moods, threats and entitlement of some of its customers.
