    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Kmart part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As a casual, Kmart has offered very flexible hours with very generous pay, allowing me to work throughout secondary school and my university degree while being able to grow my savings and have a head start financially.

    Cons

    The negative side is the intense physical labour, which can often result in overworked muscles and pain from repetitive strains (particularly in stockroom work). The company does value safety however, enforcing managers to encourage team members rotate positions, take mini-rests and stretch frequently.
