I have been working at Kmart part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Employees/coworkers are great and the managers in my store work very hard to help you.

Cons

Only one manager during the holiday times does not work , you cannot expect to have only one manager answering all complaints and doing over rides at this time of year.
Also customers swearing at you and telling you they will have your job because there is only one manager being pulled in 20 different directions and it takes them a few minutes to answer the next person.

Advice to Management

I think it is ridiculous to only have one manager and only one service desk associate during the holiday season per shift in a semi high volume store. When employees get fired or call out their shift should get covered by calling people in, instead of trying to run the shift with only one or two cashiers.The returns and phone call volume is horrible for service desk right now and we cannot and should not be expected to ring people up right now on the refund registers, because there are not enough cashiers.

    Don't give raises knowing that you deserve one.
