  • I worked at sears and it was alright. they really don't take care of their employees. I was there for two years and only ever got like a 10 cent raise that got taken away from me when I switched departments.. people that had been there for years and years were only making like 775. It was sad.
    (sears is now owned by Kmart) so id imagine itd be about the same

  • I worked for Kmart about 10-11 yrs ago, just out of high school (on a side note, good grief, I just realized how old I am, that I can say I worked somewhere just out of high school a DECADE ago! sheesh! lol). I enjoyed it. I worked there with my boyfriend at the time and my best friend, so we had a lot of fun.

  • I worked for Kmart for almost 2 years and the store I worked for was TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Keep in mind that the store I worked for was in an old building, had long-term employees who insisted on doing things their way, horrible store managers that kept changing and each one was worse than the other, terrible work schedules, and horrible treatment of employees.
    It was the most demeaning, demoralizing, and degrading job I have EVER worked at.
    If we were living in a cardboard box with no money for a meal and Kmart was the only job in town, I would NOT work for them - I have too much dignity.
