    Pros

    Most of my coworkers were great to work with.

    Cons

    Too much work for minimum wage. Not much room to move up, rarely give out raises, you get some real weird customers that are high or on drugs. Lack of communication between managers, not enough cashiers, almost ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation for your employees, give more feedback, improve communication.

    Pros

    It's easy good start for your carrer. And you get good customers and easy work environment. You need to do a background check. Like that you know you're working with good clean people everyone is friendly.

    Cons

    rude customers always understaffed ways. A lot of cleaning. Get paid minimum but you can get a raise later on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to employ more people

    Pros

    Team members were all great people to work with. Atmosphere in the store made it hard to be upset even if you wanted to be so it was impossible to not be upbeat and positive.

    Cons

    We were pretty much short staffed every day in the front end, long lines with only 4 to 5 registers open out of 19. Keep in mind this was a Super Kmart so it was relatively always busy for the most part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people.

    Pros

    location and friendly coworkers for the most part

    Cons

    Minimum wage. Short shifts 4-5 hour days. The company wants cashier's arrows to be green at 75% for reward customers - which is almost not possible. It gets annoying asking customers every time if they'd like to sign up for the rewards. Plus alot of the customers are mexicans and can't speak english.
