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

Pros

I liked working for Kmart because it had a family atmosphere. Everyone seemed to be concerned for each other and always tried to work out scheduling conflicts with school students.

Cons

There was not enough hours to properly train the staff and often mistakes were made because of it. Also when mistakes are made second chances should be given.

Advice to Management

If you know that there is a probability that something will recur on about the same date every year, warn your staff. It could save you from losing a lot of employees. i.e. alcohol stings, inspections.

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

    Pros

    I entered their store manager in training program and was placed under a great SM and DM for my training

    Cons

    when my training was over, I was transferred away from the store I was initially promised, and into a store with a completely different store manager. The store manager would hardly show up to work and had no concept of MANAGEMENT skills

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

    Pros

    The only semi good thing about this company was you got a lot of hours. But that goes into the cons, because you got paid minimum wage with no chance for a raise, and you weren't thanked for anything you did.

    Cons

    - Pay
    - Not appreciated as an employee
    - Too many things to do and not enough time in which to do it
    - Awful work environment
    - Employee discount

    Advice to Management

    Give raises, thank your employees for their work.
