Hardlines Merchandiser (Current Employee), Wichita KansasDecember 21, 2014
The management at Kmart was extremely kind and understanding and allowed a very flexible schedule, hours and forgave many mistakes made. The pay is minimum as anyone should know, retail hours arent the greatest but again that's just because it's retail. For me it simply doesn't pay enough to really bother with. It's also not something I'm really interested – more... in as a full career. If you're a person who simply just needs work Kmart is a place to be, however for long term needs Kmart doesn't really offer much. – less

Stocker (Former Employee), Kingsland, GADecember 21, 2014
Pros: stocking can be a good workout.
Cons: they expect to get everything done so you only work 2 days a week for stocking.
The people I worked with were great, Had a racist manager, if you were white he did not like you, I have seen this behavior with employees and customers.

Very fun place to work
Layaway/Softlines (Former Employee), Pekin, ILDecember 17, 2014
Pros: breaks and lunches
Cons: not enough business
The people who work there are fun to be around and being in stock it keeps you busy through some of your day. It didn't come off as a very challenging job and was easy to move up or be trained in other areas. I overall liked working there but wished Kmart had more business so my whole time there was occupied and there was more work rather than standing – more... around. – less

I would go in and get my displays setup for the day and get the register setup for sales. I would do restoration and resets as needed and provide customer service. I would also go out and water all the plants throughout the day.

Hardlines Merchandiser (Former Employee), Hixson, TNDecember 16, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: management, rick, not busy, hours
Warning this is probably the worst place to work. Management is all over the place and you are never set on one project. When someone calls in you automatically take their place no matter what it is.

Cashier (Former Employee), Staten Island, NYDecember 16, 2014
Pros: atmosphere
Cons: unpaid lunch
Cashier job, with a rewards system that you were entitled to enroll customers in. Management was easy going if you are cooperative. Co-workers were sociable and worked together to help ease long lines. Hardest part of the job would be covering the electronics department sales because of no prior training of using the keys and security magnets. Most – more... enjoyable part of the job was the team. – less

A very busy job. Kept me on my toes.
Customer service/supervisor (Former Employee), Slidell, LADecember 16, 2014
Pros: 10% discount
Cons: very few breaks and long hours working without any assistance.
A typical day at work was very busy. In the morning it was only one person running customer service and dealing with cashiers. The next customer service associate didn't start work until 2 hours before the morning persons day was scheduled to end. At which time the opening associate finally got a lunch break. Eight hours working by yourself with that – more... much responsibility was difficult but it did make the days go by faster. Never a dull moment. The managers were great. They too were usually short staffed, but they were good at their jobs. The most enjoyable part to me was when the store was very busy but we were able to keep checkout lines moving and customers happy. – less
