I worked at Kmart over the Christmas period so it was really busy with customers left right and centre. I enjoyed this as I love to keep busy and help people so at the time Kmart was the right place for me as I got to meet a lot of people and help others as well which is what I do.

I loved working at kmart it was a great store to work at and a great company. The only down fall is that they were always understaffed on nightshift. Everyone that's works there were great people who were always there for me. They were like my family.

Worked at Kmart Bethlehem for around 2 years. Meet an amazing bunch of people.
Store manager changed halfway through my time there. Original store manager was amazing, very well respected. Current store manager is a pig. Is only concerned about the operation of the store (which he puts minimal effort into) with little regard to the toll it takes on his staff.

Kmart was mostly enjoyable, but also very stressful at peak trading times.
I loved the teams I worked with and got to meet some amazing people on my journey through Kmart.

Salary was what you would expect for a high volume, fast paced retailer.

A day at 8203 Porirua does not come without it's challenges. At the end of the day it's not about you but giving the customer a great shopping experience. Team work also

Overall there were great people to work with, but management needed a bit more work. A typical day at work was a busy one but was mainly in the stockroom sorting out loads.
Pros
great people to work with
Cons
Unfair hours and mistreated at times

Working for Kmart taught me customer service and the importance of multi-tasking. It was my first experience at everything, working at cash tills, customer service, merchandising to knowing the difference between clothing brands to products etc. It was an amazing experience and every day was busy so I did feel under pressure at times but it was good for me. I learnt fast!
Pros
5% discounts
Cons

Crossing the T's and dotting the I's is what the job is about. Ensuring all Health and safety training is done, training all new staff. Doing all admin work and overseeing stock room

Not setup to succeed, conflicting management, rotational shifts that prevent you from achieving your role, everyone has a diff story for the same thing, fairly haphazard place that flys by the seat of its pants and an oily rag

Dealing with customers on a daily basis helps you deal with many things for example;
* fear- if you are not used to talking to people.

* communication - how well you communicate to people makes all the difference between making a sale or not.

* open mind - helps to be open minded because no 2 days are the same.
Pros
10% off products purchased there
Cons
Long hours and have to work all public holidays !
