Operations Manager

"Don't work here!"

What do you like about working at Kmart?

"I liked nothing about working at KMart."

What don't you like about working at Kmart?

"Long hours (36 hours straight at times with 6 hours off then back at it again). Very little pay when compared to time invested. A very cut-throat environment. District Managers and Regional VP's are clueless to everyday store operations. Little care is spent on customer satisfaction, it's all about the most profit made with the least amount of money invested."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Realize that middle management and lower personnel have lives and family that are more important than the company. Slavery and indentured servitude was abolished generations ago in this country."
