Cultural diversity
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.

Unhealthy pay and expectations.
Said it took one employee 13 years to become full time. Stagnant work culture! Paid pennies while expecting 100 percent dedication inside and outside the job.

Determained to stay viable.
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.

It was a good job overall
Working at kmart was a little challenging at first, but i learned how to multitask, to manage a whole store, and to work under pressure. It was a great management experience.

Not a great job
Kmart wasn’t a great job, it was very disorganized and was closing soon so it seemed as if the managers didn’t care what was happening to the store anymore.

Friendly and smooth with Assistant Manager
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.
Pros
Weekly Donuts
Cons
Breaktime

Not the best retail experiance
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.
Pros
job experiance
Cons
no breaks, short lunch, barely any instructions to handle customers, inconsistent work areas

Easy work environment
A typical day at Kmart is pretty easy and fast paced if we are busy.
There is no hard part about the job.

The most enjoyable part of the job is my co-workers in my department.

Life at Kmart
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.
Pros
Training, travel
Cons
schedule

I was great
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.

All depends on your work ethic and if your a people person
Stay happy the customers sometimes go by the energy you give out. You can always make their day better or they can make yours. Try to explain if there are any promises going on and be clear spoken.

okay work environment
You learn a lot in the work zone, it isn't always busy but during holidays you might have to work overtime. lunch breaks are short and managers are not willing to discuss problem with employees.
Cons
short breaks, management isn't great
