    I have been working at Kmart full-time

    Pros

    The store team was amazing. The workload wasn't unbearable. They provided a flexible schedule. I had my own office. Varying responsibilities made the job fun.

    Cons

    The pay was terrible. No raises or incentives to improve. No chance for promotion. The epitome of a dead end job. I was forced to lay off people in my store that had worked there for decades. Hours were constantly being cut to save money.

    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

    Pros

    They give you a pay check. They have been giving discounts until now.

    Cons

    The CEO could care less about what happens to the company since he's making money no matter what! They're taking full-time people that worked somewhere 30+ years and letting them go and saying , "Well you can be part-time!" which equals to, "We don't want to have to pay for your benefits anymore!".

    Advice to Management

    Let Chick-fil-A or Hobby Lobby's CEO out buy Eddie Lampert and make things better!!!

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

    Pros

    Its a easy well paying job.

    Cons

    Not everyone is nice, and not all of other employees get along with new people. Also not of all the managers are nice.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe, you should make sure all of your employees get along with new ones. Also you should lighten up on your employees people make mistakes and people have personal lives that they have to deal with too, you should probably lighten up on the scheduling because family problems happen, also so do injuries in your employees.
