    I have been working at Kmart full-time

    Pros

    Great team with support, associates are really dedicated to providing great customer service. Pushing to get better with integrated retail is nice.

    Cons

    Company is in a weird place and a lot of changes are going on both in store and at corporate level; not a whole lot of communication to the stores about these changes so you can't accurately answer the associates/members questions

    Advice to Management

    Added communication to the store teams about what is going on at the corporate level so that associate concerns can be addressed with accurate information.
