Fun place to work. It was never boring.
Office Manager (Former Employee), Barberton, OHAugust 29, 2015
Pros: Supportive managment, always new things to keep you learning
Cons: Big corporate red tape.
Typical day at work would be first getting all money ready for store to open, then balancing all register bags from day before, correcting any discrepancies, bank deposits, entering any 30 day receivable payments, invoicing, and filing all paper work for all office functions. Training all new office associates. Management was very supportive and I could always trust in them. Co workers were great and we had fun but always got our work done also. Of course there was the red tape and politics when you work for a large company.

Very pleasant work environment
Office Associate (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOAugust 27, 2015
Pros: employee discounts/excellent training
Cons: work load doubled when we were short staffed/low salary
Everyday had something new that needed to be researched or resolved and documented. I learned to work quickly and efficiently on my own. The best part were the people I worked with and the hardest part was trying to find an off duty employee to resolve a discrepancy.

Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Kingsland GaAugust 27, 2015
Pros: Comfortable work environment
Cons: low pay and no raises
Working at Kmart is a challenge everyday that you go in to work either I am on the floor working the jewelry department, layaway department and the general service areas of the store. I learn something different everyday. The hardest part of my job is the constant walking back and fourth and not feeling that I am gonna get the task for the night completed. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new members everyday and helping them out.

I loved working there, felt it like a family
cashier/ trainer (Former Employee), Petoskey, MIAugust 27, 2015
Pros: employee discounts
Cons: short beaks, cold weather
I was a employee that was never late, because I was so happy to go to work. I learned so much and was excited to put those new skills in practice. While most of the people I worked with I loved my favorite was my manager, she was willing to take timeout to help me understand anything and always willing to help out if needed.The hardest part of the job was keeping up with all the people checking out when there was not enough cashiers to work the registers and the best part was always feeling like I could talk to any employee if I needed to.

kmart is one of the best jobs I've ever held.
Footwear lead (Current Employee), Glasgow kyAugust 26, 2015
Pros: opportunity to move up the ladder with hard work and perseverance
Cons: part time health care is pretty bad
Kmart is one of the best jobs i have ever held. The people I work with everyday are some of the most thoughtful people I'v ever had the pleasure of meeting. I have learned so many different things about:Integrated retail, and how to deal positively with many different personality types. I love the feeling I get when I have done a good job and our management team recognizes it. The hardest part of this job is, the amount of things that need to be done in the amount of time it takes to keep things rolling with no bumps or hick up. But somehow we manage to get it done.

I enjoy my customers
Evening Supervisor (Current Employee), Killeen, TXAugust 26, 2015
Pros: Work with and meet fun people
Cons: Short breaks
I enjoy going to work because of my customers. Not everyone is in the greatest of moods but if I could make someone day that was enough for me. Not every is perfect and you learn to accept that from customers and employees but It nice to know that people come back to see you because they enjoyed their last visit.

Customer Service (Former Employee), Tifton, GAAugust 26, 2015
The job is great within itself but the company is very hard to work for. They don't believe in higher ranking placement and management really does hold there positions.
