Pros: Room for advancement and managers acknowledged hard work
Cons: Had to leave for College
K-Mart was one of my first jobs out of high school. I started as a regular cashier for part-time, but soon after my 3 month probation I was moved to the electronics department. I handled regular purchases and electronics merchandise, money counts and balances as well.
On our Thanksgiving Day sale, my manager left me responsible for the whole department and 5 employees. It got pretty hectic but I enjoy the pressure. That's how I got my promotion for Assistant Manager of Electronics. My responsibilities were to assist the department manager in all department-related activities that included, department supervision, assisting customers, provide excellent customer service, stock the department and keep inventory up to date. Another task included management of lower staff.
