Calm atmosphere
Cashier (Former Employee), Oregon, OHJanuary 23, 2015
It was always a good day at work. Smiling faces, nice co-workers. I didnt learn much since it was just a temp job. The hardest part was all the prompts and cart pushing. Overall its a good job.

it was okay
Customer Service/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Scranton, PAJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: no management, no set lunch schedule, rude customers, rude employees
I worked at Kmart seasonal as a service desk associate and then a checkout supervisor. I liked it at first, until they mass hired and there was way too many chiefs and not emough Indians. With that being said, everyone thought they were the boss because there was no clear line of authority. The actual managers were never anywhere to be found, so the person with the highest seniority generally tried to take control and that sparked a chain reaction.

Productive and interesting
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Roanoke, VAJanuary 23, 2015
A typical day at work varies, meaning everyday is not the same. One day you can come in and have your normal routine, such as merchandising, helping customers and so on. Other days it can be busy, you can be short staffed and have to pick up where ever need be. Working for this company has brought me a lot of patience, and has taught me how to properly deal with the public. My management is wonderful, couldn't ask for better. The hardest part about my job would be exceeding my expectations. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping those rare customers that make your day exciting.

Just a Job
Overnight Stock Crew Member (Former Employee), Elmwood Park, NJJanuary 23, 2015
Hard work for little pay. Management isn't helpful, co-workers are just workers with little aspirations. The hardest part about working there was seeing your check after all the work you have done.

Stock Porter/Cashier (Former Employee), 2801 West State Street, Olean, NY 14760January 23, 2015
A typical day at work, would consist of me starting with small jobs, or unloading truck depending on the day of the week. Also i par take in assisting customers with carry outs and carry ins. I learn how to interact greatly on a 1 on 1 with customer. The team was for the most part up beat and positive. the hardest part of the job was being new to assisting with unloading directly from the truck. The overall exp of it all was enjoyable.

Pros: flexible work schedule

Productive and experienced lead
Jewelry Lead (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: full time, benefits, being responsible for my own area, great customers
Cons: having to be back up cashier sometimes
A typical day at work includes greeting customer in my area and asking if they want to look at any fine jewelry. I show jewelry and make announcements over the intercom about the great sales for the week. I merchandise my area and straighten any area that needs attention. I help cover the service desk for breaks and answer the phones. I process transactions when the front end gets busy. I work with receiving to get my merchandise received. I also work with claims to send out any damages. I audit high priced jewelry twice a week. I delegate tasks to my employees. The hardest part of the job is the audits if something comes up missing having to work with loss prevention to find it. The most enjoyable part of the job is making a customer happy whether they purchase something or not.

Job is great for high school students
Cashier and Stocker (Current Employee), Palatka, FLJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: great job for a high school student
Cons: little hours
This job is great if you are a high school student and looking for some pocket change... This is not a company you would like to make a career with. There are not to many full time opening within the company most of the jobs are part time with little benefits.

Loss Prevention Associate (Former Employee), Zion, ILJanuary 22, 2015
I was able to get some certifications in investigation and be able to do learn how to handle and loved internal investigations. Being able to catch an employee stealing is so much more intense and I enjoyed that so much more than catching external.

Hardlines Merchandiser (Current Employee), Clarksville, TNJanuary 21, 2015
As a merchandiser who works in the Hardlines department, the work is difficult, which is expected for an employee charged with most of the heavy labor involved in organizing the store's merchandise, yet it tends to be fullfilling in the manners of completing a hard day's work. I have enjoyed working with the other employees at Kmart. As I have been trying to learn as quickly as possible, they have not hesitated to give me assisstance when I ask for it. Many of the older employees have actually been great teachers to me. They have also helped me learn how to properly handle customers with more aggressive personifications. This has taught me how to communicate withothers more successfully.
