    I worked at Kmart part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great opportunity to work with different kinds of people. You form friendships that you would not have made elsewhere. It also forms skills with interacting with customers.

    Cons

    The job is minimum wage which can be expected from a first job. It is what you make of it. You can make the job fun if you make the most of it.
