I think I learned how to hone my customer service skills. There was a family vibe at Kmart, and I still keep in touch with some of them after I had resigned. The management was good, but you did not get a 'formal' training of how things worked (besides induction) especially when its close to seasonal periods ie Christmas where we would be swarmed with customers. Some store managers were better than others. The hours despite long were definitely higher than the minimum wage (before April 2018) so you got paid for your efforts. Hours though, dependent on your own relationship with management.
Pros
Good Hours, Acceptable Starting Wage
Cons
Needs more training of new staff members

I learnt a lot from Kmart. Being on the shop floor did help me a lot with my confidence and how I saw my self. The culture is very family friendly and you have many girls and boys working with their parents. When something goes wrong you can guarantee that the Kmart family can help you out.
Pros
Get a workout being on the shop floor
Cons
Really Long Hours

A typical day at work for me was very busy depending on the work load as I was one of the fastest and senior pickers. I learnt that in a factory there are alot of workers that come and go as they cannot handle the change of hours. I got along very well with my coworkers and alot of them I call family now. the hardest part of my job was training all the new people but it was also the most enjoyable to because I got to know them alot also.
Pros
amazing people to work with
Cons
long hours

I make sure that the shelves are clean and full, so our customers have a choice of all of our range. I hold daily meetings with my colleagues to huddle out our figures. I also deal with any customer issues.

I had fun helping the customer's and putting out new stock. There wasnt anything I didnt like about working at Kmart. While i was working at Kmart there wasn't anything that was hard for me because i learnt pretty quickly, the only thing i would of liked to learn was being a cashier and how to do the layby stuff. The co-workers at Kmart are really nice awesome people always helped me if i needed the help.
