Jewelry associate- open counter organized displays, assisted customers in purchasing of items up sale at all times. learned how to deal with difficult customers and turn there bad day into a great one. Always had cleaning to do.
Overnight Stock- Consistent hours time management a must. attention to detail and organizational skills a must.
Overall working at Kmart as been a good place to start. But should not be taken as a long term job as there is no benefits to be derived from working as a part time worker. There is no management to fight for workers compensation. But it gives a sense of direction to anyone who is interested in work life balance. The starting point is very good.
A typical day mostly consist of customer service and merchandising. Cooperative management teamm that worked well together. A tenured associate base that made it easy to get things done. Dealing with fluctuating inventory was the most difficult part of the job.
Like to work in Kmart. Assistant Manager was helpful and friendly and hard worker. I did not like store manager Bsz he was not professional. In front of his eyes store merchandise stolen by supervisors and most of the time he was I involved. If company want to be success then manger should do job with their hand not with the mouth or use finger’s.
5 hours or more depending on availablity. Only 15 minutes to eat lunch. No breaks or rest between hours. Scheduling was not consistent. Experienced a traumatic encounter with an angry customer. Older employees chat and gossip, younger employees are given their workload.
no breaks, short lunch, barely any instructions to handle customers, inconsistent work areas
Had a long tenure there it was a great place to work. Had ant took advantage of the many opportunities to advance ad got to work at many locations. The hard part was the inconsistency in schedule, which is just the nature of retail. You work weekends and holidays, so work/life balance is hard to juggle.
I was there for a short time and got a promotion. The management lacked professionalism and the leads act like that as well. I found myself wanting to know how this company lasted as long as they did. And now at this point I understand they hire half productive people. That was just my honest opinion doesn't mean that there wasn't great people at Kmart.
My first 4 years was fun but things change when supplies to the store started going down and associates started losing their jobs or been demoted.the store started losing some of it's best associates to other companies. Customers started complaining about lack of variety of goods.
