    I worked at Kmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy job, great hours, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Increasing work load each year, low budget leading to no help on the sales floor, low pay, unrealistic expectations for such little help

    Advice to Management

    The budget is ridiculous. Cutting the help and being cheap leads to unhappy customers when they're looking for help but there's only one person in the area and that person is running from one place to the next.

    Pros

    Have always loved coming into work at Kmart for the customers and co-workers

    Cons

    Management, no advancement whatsoever no matter how hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    Need to stop gossiping behind people's backs about issues and tell accociates the issue up front. HR need to follow their own policy about employee privacy
