"I have worked with Kmart for a little over 2 years. The work environment is great. I get along with everyone and everyone works as a team to please the customer. The only downfall of working for Kmart is that I get paid 7.25 an hour and they can't afford to give out raises."

Kmart Employee
in West Babylon, NY

"I work at Kmart. We are very understaffed. We never have enough people to close the store. Many employees don't get enough hours. Management is not helpful. They're seen walking around the store, playing on their cell phones, and telling everybody else to get back to work. My supervisors are nice, but the exception of one, who will yell all the time, even in front of customers. Customers complain frequently, as expected in retail, but if they do it enough, you can get written up for it."

"Before I came to this job, I worked at Worlds of Fun and oh my, I can't explain how many bad work reviews it had. But honestly, I'd rather stay there than working at this joke job. Supervision SUCKS. Kmart, ever heard of proper training and proper orientation for your workers. Learn it. You guys are irresponsible with your employees. Worst place to work at, ever."

"I've worked for Kmart for over 21 years. In that time I watched it change from a company that valued its employees. To a company that would look for any reason to let someone go. At Kmart they are always rolling out a new way to do things. However some of the old ways worked best. Kmart never wanted to listen to the people doing the job but the ones at corporate. Also the CEO would drop money in the stocks to keep the stock prices up. I feel that Kmart is on its way out because they do not want to listen to their customers what few they have left. Kmart also will not listen to their own employees who do not want Kmart to fail. I would also like to say that Kmart has the highest turnover rate that I ever saw."

"Corporate's mindset makes it difficult to stay here longterm."

What do you like about working at Kmart?

"The Store Manager is a hard working, dedicated manager. She will pitch in and help with pretty much anything that needs doing. She is approachable and will listen to concerns."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The interview was pretty straightforward and simple. Dress in business casual and be prompt."

What don't you like about working at Kmart?

"The corporate management is horrible. They have no idea what works in the trenches and they are not open to suggestions. There has been a wage freeze for 3 years and counting which may not be the end of the world if you are have been there awhile, but if you are started out at minimum wage, it's pretty bad."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop requiring people to do endless, redundant tasks which could be streamlined or eliminated if you would listen to some feedback from employees. (For example: Pick Lists which do not reflect accurate shelf sizes and stock needs)"
