    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Easy going co-workers, fun and friendly atmosphere. Enjoyable. Assistance between co-workers was good but not with management.

    Cons

    When it comes to stock, there was no help when you needed assistance to get the larger boxes or crates from the top level of stock storage. When you stated the areas you need assistance in to do a better job you are mostly ignored and looked at as if you are a unproductive employee.

    Advice to Management

    Listen better to the needs of an employee when they need to address a situation.

    I worked at Kmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities for promotion and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Pay is abysmal. Stores are closing all over the United States as Sears Holding continues to die a slow death. There were absolutely no raises during the years I worked here. Paid vacation and benefits were offered. However, the health insurance was too expensive to buy. I worked 48 hours per week, including evenings and weekends. No bonuses. I lost my job after a store closing. I was called in for a phone conference, which is nothing unusual and they terminated several of us over the phone. I was out the door with no warning, although upper management all know about it. Was given a four week severance package.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees.
