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

    Pros

    Friendly Co-Works, Commission on Rewards cards, Good pay, Good job for part time.

    Cons

    Being yelled at for not selling cards, Doesn't work around your schedule, Long hours, On your feet a lot, 15 minute break that gets you from the cash register, to the grocery area, and to checkout.

    Advice to Management

    STOP CARING SO MUCH ABOUT SEARS SOLUTIONS!!!! You guys would be fine if you stopped trying to shove those down everyone's throats. I had customers verbally abuse me for asking them. I sold a decent amount of Smart Plans and made tons of comission, but I got called in and talked about how I'm a disappointment because I had not gotten someone to get a credit card. Disgusting. Also, hire more floor associates. Can't tell you how many times I had to wait in line for 10+ minutes on one customer, waiting for the floor associates to call me for a price check.

    I have been working at Kmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Responsible for many aspects of store sales and operations

    Cons

    Work load is overwhelming. New layouts, freight, restocking, maintenance of departments. Fix one problem, twelve more are waiting for you around the corner. Scheduled 48 hours per week but have to work 60-70 hours per week just to finish the required work. I work days off, vacation days, stay late come in early to stay on top of it. Why, because you get blamed if it's not done.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs. Give hourly associates raises. They deserve it.
