A typical day at work would be fun, because there is always something to do, which keeps you moving. I learnt a lot of things while working, I learnt about different customers and how to deal with them in the best way possible. The management was awesome, always checking up on team members and being apart of the team, some team leaders were not of what I would call a leader. The workplace culture was awesome, and unique. Everyone fit in which was good. There weren't any hard parts of the job but some moments when customers are extremely angry that there is nothing you can do but ask them to leave. The most enjoyable part of the job were your team members, they are fun and it is happy to be around them. I mostly enjoyed talking to customers.

I was working casual with the Kmart Distribution Centre, I learnt what it was like to work in a warehouse before I was working at Sistema. The hardest part for me working there, was stacking the cartons on pallets evenly and at a fast pace. What I didn't like was being paid $1.00 per carton, I think it was an unfair job because the staff that had been there longer knew how to take peoples cartons and earn more than the newer people.
Pros
good lunch breaks
Cons
wasnt hourly rate

fantastic place to connect with customers and team members i was able to teach team members how to merchandise and replenish shelves in a well presented and timely fashion. I was fortunate to work in the retail business as my family owned a shop from a very young age.

I like my work at Kmart and try my best to enjoy each day I work there. The team works well to get jobs done and always help out each other. Everyone generally is positive and respectful toward eachother. I really enjoy working with others and getting to know people more. Kmart has also helped me to socialize with customers and my confidence is growing and I am beginning to enjoy customers then being shy.

job was okay. However I didn't really enjoy it due to the fact that management staff wasn't so fair on the assistant members with hours and pay etc. Therefore being in an environment where there is a lack of support and inequality among the workers would negatively impact my day and attitude to work at my best.
Pros
pay
Cons
long hours

typical day at work is long having to chop & change rosters everyday nights are way harder because your having to sort merchandise plus apparel and have your area your allocated too clean tidy & sorted from sizes to there right department before it hits 12am which is harder because there are still people shopping as the shop is still open till 12am. co workers are awesome great people to be around and have a bright sense of humor as well as a strict comfort zone when we have to do work. i would recommend working at kmart again if the opportunity was available but its very hard to get in when a lot of people are applying. different managers for every shift during day night & graveyard shift.
Pros
20% discount / coffee etc help yourself
Cons
long hours sore feet

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
