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

Pros

Not really many great things to say, but I did like getting a paycheck...

Cons

So much STRESS. This company is going out of business because they spend everything on jets for CEO's and bonus for their corporate employees, but dirt and stress for the front lines people. Their cashiers get treated like garbage. They will only pay new employees min wage if you are a cashier, and so much is expected of you. They have no budget to hire employees because they spend too much money on too much product in the store. There is never enough room for all the crap they have on the floor. This company will not be around for long, because they can not figure out how to treat people. GET A CLUE, your front lines are the face of your company, top level management should get paid way less then they do, spend the money on the front lines not the 2 year CEO's that sit around and do nothing but flush company money down the drain on the way to their next job, because who wants to work for Kmart- ME?? HELL NO!

Advice to Management
