Pros

Compensation for management is better than any other job that is similar.
Some good people there. Be open minded, some have gone through ups and downs with this company.

Cons

In the past it seems as though some managers got the job by luck and who they knew. Abilities and leadership just wasn't there.

Advice to Management

Some of you who have been there before the bankruptcy need to wake up and learn that things are changing. If you don't change with it, you are just holding back your store. Learn, communicate, and get involved.

    Pros

    The rest of the employees at Kmart were extremely friendly. We were able to work numerous positions which made it fun.

    Cons

    the cleanliness of the store was terrible. Also, comparing Kmart to stores like Walmart and Target is a joke. We got limited interest

    Advice to Management

    I believe management needs to hire young talent that has th work ethic and energy to truly turn this copany around.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Kmart is a very laid back place to work, which makes it a relatively stress free environment. The tasks are easy to accomplish, and the atmosphere is welcoming. They are willing to work around personal schedules.

    Cons

    The pay is (very) low, especially in the current market. Raises are rarely given without a change in position, and the work can become somewhat monotonous. The schedules are somewhat sporadic, as well.

    Advice to Management

    Even a slight increase in wages every now and then would dramatically raise employee morale. An attempt at making the workplace more friendly, perhaps by instituting a casual day, once a month or so (even if it's just shoes) would serve to make the experience more personal.
