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the checkouts you need to obsesrve some of these companies to get a better handle on what can be fixed in your stores outdated appearance it isnt a bad thing to refresh the look from time to time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

    Pros

    If you are a terrible employee you will never have to worry about being fired once you make it past your 90 days.

    Cons

    Kmart sets impossible goals for it's employees and fails to hold anybody accountable for incompetence and failure. If you're looking for a place to succeed when you are a failure Kmart is your place to go.

    Advice to Management

    A failure to give raises to employees for the past 4 years has provided new employees with no incentive to acheive above and beyond or grow. Terrible employees are kept on because the Kmart mantra is "well who is going to replace them". My advice for Kmart management is to stop paying minimum wage to all employees. Start out at least $8.00 an hour so we aren't getting the very bottom of the barrel employee wise. Stop spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on stupid culture meetings and instead give your employees a raise. A positive review with no monetary compensation means nothing and is essentially a slap in the face that kills all motivation.
