Overall, I enjoyed my time working at Kmart. The managers and team members were friendly and approachable and the job was relatively stress-free with good. There were issues with personal life conflicting with work, where I felt let down by the company, but I believe they are taking steps to be more employee orientated.
Pros
Good pay, friendly team
Cons
Inadequate employee support

When i was working at K-Mark there was a lot of skills that i have gained, though doing work experience. i have learnt to work as team, help your team out if they are having problems, giving direction to the customers if they cant find the items that they are looking for and providing customers wonderful service. Different culture, there are a few times where me and the person that i was working with didn't really get along well but what i have learnt is to respect different culture the way you would want to be treated by respecting there culture and religion. The work environment, i love it because i had a chance to work with such a awesome people.
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
Long Hours

Decanting is part of the process which I learnt to be a team player within my work force. Managed how to multi task when overwhelmed with loads of goods coming in and out of store. Enjoyed the Culture and the kind people around me, which keeps me safe within this work force environment. The hardest part of the Job was to deal with staff issues example like the loss of goods in the store. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people new faces and happy personnel around me.
