    Flexible hours as in, you could switch shifts constantly as long as you found someone to switch shifts with and you let HR know

    You only get twenty hours a week and reduce your hours because of lack of business.

    It may only be the location I worked at but management was always willing to work around my school hours as well as those of my co-workers.

    They work with people in school, so their hours work around their school time

    Given the simple definition of "reduced or flexible hours," I can agree that Kmart does offer this to its employees. It is quite easy to request time off, to put a limit on the maximum hours one can work a week, and to change one's availability for certain days and times. That said, such high flexibility comes at the cost of being lucky to be given a worthwhile number of hours on the schedule in the first place. To comply with healthcare laws, part-time employees are not given health benefits and, therefore, can work a maximum of 29 hours a week. The reality is usually far less. Full-time workers are not supposed to work less than 32 hours a week, but often do because of payroll cuts. No overtime for working over 40 hours a week is approved anymore, and hasn't been for many years. So, yes, flexible hours are a reality at Kmart, but that's only because each employee is given so few hours to begin with.
