    I worked at Kmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive wages, great co-workers, opportunities to learn

    Cons

    It's been a corporation on the downside of the mountain since it merged with Sears in 2005. Not enough attention was paid to the infrastructure.

    Advice to Management

    While I believe this is comment comes much to late to be of any use, management needed to realize its greatest resource was the people working for it but primarily the relationship it had with its customers.

    The management is terrible and you are expected to do too much with how much they are paying you.
