Been hearing some rumblings today that the Big Bear Lake Kmart (7653) is going to be closing down starting February. Wondering if anyone has any inside info if there is any truth to this.
Topics regarding layoffs at Kmart
The company in Valparaiso In also had their HR person fire people before they closed—- bad practice!!! Then managers from the store hired their family members!!! All the managers sat in their break room for hours at a time—— they should have... — read more
I see this thread isnt used much, as most Kmart news is in the Sears thread, but if anyone is curious, Raleigh NC, & Temple City CA Kmarts are closing.
i started my career there. Always hoped to get back there some day. Good store Good people
I heard a rumor, let’s just say through the grapevine, that my local Kmart, one of the few remaining kmarts left, would essentially hang on till the bitter end. Assuming there is an end, and not a last second saving of a few stores. Anyway to tell... — read more

Over $250k in cycle waste! There goes the P&L for the year
i am a previous Kmart employee of 40years . Wondering what is happening under the new company. Full time ,pay ect
I realize that Kmart is in need of good, smart labor. Some working are knowledgeable, because they had management experience with Kmart in the past. Not everyone has the will to work hard, or the ability to do some tasks. People who assume a level of... — read more
The best thing to ever happen was for me to loose my job with this company. For everyone left go now.There are better jobs out there.
Sears/Kmart seems to be wising up a little bit by suing Eddie and his companies. Hopefully it works out well and people get to keep their jobs long term.
Anyone know what the meetings are about this week?
Cash has to be completed by 11am and all excess money deposited. No check cashing. And when we try to order change we can't get thru. It says they are experimenting technical difficulties. Ww never had these mandated rules. — read more
So just because Eddie has won the auction, don't hold your breath. Because don't be surprised if Eddie's "Go Forward" plan includes pretty much killing off Kmart stores in the future. You're jobs are not as safe as you like think believe they are.
My KMART closed early 2018, they haven't emailed me with the W2 yet, what's the link to the website that has the W2s?

Wildfires just destroyed the town of Paradise, CA. The Kmart there is gone.
Is it okay for managers to pay employees with penny merchandise? I’ve noticed that one employee who was fired is back working, but a manager said she was being paid “under the table” with the penny merchandise.

I'm wondering if they are planning to just to show Kmart down entirely. They seemingly keep not mention Kmart in the talks. They keep saying they will shut down 150 out of 700 stores....okay, but what amount are Kmarts and what amount are Sears? I'm... — read more

So was just to by my manager that the whole bankruptcy news is "fake news". Apparently every Kmart had an emergency meeting about this and that everything is fine. Lol. What a joke. We all know the truth.

What do you think? Will any Kmart stores survive half a billion losses or are we about to go the way of dinosaurs? I know there's still quite a few stores to go, but I think Eddie will focus on Sears rather than Kmart in the last months or years of... — read more

It's obvious more post on Sears layoffs than Kmart's because Sears has more dire need than Kmart. Kmart is doing so much better than Sears. Kmart strong here!!!
