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

Pros

co workers and customers make for a great feeling in this store at times. easy position overall though poor focus from management, short shifts so you never have to spend very long at work

Cons

this store suffers from poor store management never really seems to know what is going on. company tends to push for odd things as the primary focus (credit cards, reward cards, service plans, surveys) without proper staffing for cashiers or anywhere in the store for that matter. store manager is self centered without thanking anyone else for any results

Advice to Management

all your competitors seem to be able to get staffing at the checkouts you need to obsesrve some of these companies to get a better handle on what can be fixed in your stores outdated appearance it isnt a bad thing to refresh the look from time to time

    I worked at Kmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work, good job for a high-schooler, my store was very well kept, got to deal with great repeat customers.

    Cons

    Pay raises almost non-existent, store management was like a dictatorship and used harsh favoritism, schedule was always changing, holiday time is a nightmare to work. You get the sense your very disposable. Very limited room for advancement, you have to be favored to get offered decent positions. Store HR is very considerate and flexible however.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what employee care is, encourage advancement to get entry-level workers something to strive for. Get with the changing times, it's not 1991 anymore!

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

    Pros

    I loved all my co workers and all of my managers were really awesome. It was a fun place to work at for my first job. I was a softlines merchandiser always work to do every single day on the floor. The people who worked in hardlines seemed to walk around all the time doing nothing! I envied them just walking around the store having nothing to do while the girls on the floor were so busy!

    Cons

    the intimates department was a mess i swear none of the girls in softlines ever did intimates it was a wreck. Whenever a girl was appointed that position to work on it would never get done. That was just at my store thought don't really know which spots are the worst ones.
