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

    Pros

    Great customers
    Decent hours in the Summer months
    Easy to use training system
    Easy going staff and management
    Pos system is user friendly

    Cons

    Seems to me that favorites were played when creating the schedule after the holidays: select few had steady hours while the rest had multiple weeks off in a row.

    Advice to Management

    Just... Keep up the good work. And try a little bit of equality in the schedule as opposed to giving the same people hours because they are your friends. This is why I quit.

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

    Pros

    Great co workers, flexibility with schedule, good with school life balancing.

    Cons

    Poor pay, HORRIBLE training, management gave me false hope that they good, very short staff, rude customers, excessive standing in one place, short breaks. Overall very unhappy with the job..

    Advice to Management

    Please be truthful when you hire someone. Do not promise a person one thing and when they are there another thing happens. Also do better on training. I was literally thrown in and I specified that I wanted extra training because I had never worked retail.

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

    Pros

    There's only part time positions. You get 15-26 hours a week. I was sales floor associate so I had more freedom to do whatever I wanted.

    Cons

    I worked there for a year & went through 3 managers. The first one had a heart attack cause the job was so stressful, the second one was racist & just stopped showing up, and the third one was alright.

    Advice to Management

    Get your stuff together...

    I worked at Kmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    I felt like I was part of a family while working there. We relied on one another to get our work done and that realization makes things run a lot smoother

    Cons

    Don't care who they hire. They hire individuals with shady backgrounds when there are many more deserving and hardworking people available.

    Advice to Management

    Have some empathy for your employees. Take time to understand their lives and how knowing them makes the whole store and team more efficient.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are so helpful
    Not every customer who comes through your line sucks the life out of you

    Cons

    Not flexible at all with hours. I could only work 12-5 and they never scheduled me for those times even after repeatedly being told I could not work outside those hours

    Manager didnt care about the way he treated the customers but you would have thought i killed her dog when i called off because i was sick

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

    Pros

    Can earn commission with getting people to sign up for a Kmart card or credit card (albeit nearly impossible)

    Cons

    Management has ego problems; super rude to workers, talks about them in front of them.

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure no one wants to be miserable at work. It would be better if the management making at least enough to support their families would ease up on the minimum wagers trying to support their families.
