    I have been working at Kmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is nothing great about this job.

    Cons

    If you enjoy gossip, then this is the place for you. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy. The company doesn't care about their employees. Some people get certain privileges or they'er Favorited far more then others and you'er left doing everyone else's jobs and yours too. Sadly you'er not getting paid extra for doing so.

    I worked at Kmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    There aren't any pros at all, only work here if you are desperate.

    Cons

    The pay is really poor, only a 10% discount and that doesn't even apply if the item is on sale. The company as a whole needs major upgrades, still using computers from the 1990s. Management is poor and doesn't care about your needs. Loss prevention treats employees like criminals. Customers have lower respect for you than normal.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when they have a problem. Speak to supervisors about treating workers like people. Doing something about the terrible pay.
