    I worked at Kmart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers and management were excellent, plenty of hours, rarely a dull moment, and I gained valuable experience and references.

    Cons

    Store cleanliness. Especially where shelves were moved to other areas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and maybe mop the floors a bit more.
