When your salary gets to high they want to fire you to get a cheaper person to do your job, how well they do it is not important just dollars and cents. Experience means nothing to this company. Last 5 years was the worst . Messed also with the retirement program. Use to help them self.

Human Resource & Training Manager - Plainfield, IL - July 16, 2021
The store was newly opening and I was hired to help set up the store and open it, and then work as a cashier. 3 days in the Manager saw my good work ethics, qualities & attitude and he asked if I would like the position of HR Manager. I said yes, they gave me an office a manual and let me learn on my own. Not the best way to train, but for me I flourished. Kmart was a retail store, pay was not good, but the friends I made was special and I learned alot about Human Resources, training and myself.
