    I worked at Kmart

    Pros

    Flexible hours, straight forward job, paid time off, position switch, easy job, good environment, great for a teenager looking to start working

    Cons

    Minimum wage, the credit card Rapids are little to none, they put stress and pressure on you to get people to sign up for rewards and credit cards, hard to get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax with the rewards card and credit cards. If they don't want one they don't want one

    Former Employee - Customer Service Associate in Fairfax, VA

    I worked at Kmart

    Pros

    The company was very flexible around my school schedule which was a necessity since I began working for them back in HS and my first semester of college. They increased hourly pay for Customer Service employees from minimum wage ($7.25) to $9.50 an hour as an incentive for the hard work.

    Cons

    Management was really lazy and expected way too much from the cashier's. It was necessary to have at least two Sears credit card signups daily (with this economy, no one wants a new CC) and over 10 rewards cards a day - that was just a unrealistic goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We understand the need to have good numbers but think realistically about what can be achieved currently.
