With Thanksgiving so close, I have started to consider some things that I am most thankful for. TODAY, I am Thankful, Grateful and Lucky to have a Job that I Love. I am the Human Resource Manager at Kmart.
I have worked for Kmart for nearly 30 years. I have been in just about every position they offer at store level. Currently, I am doing my most favorite one.
In my job I get to interview, help select and hire the associates that fill our store. I take them thru Orientation and when I can, training on the sales floor if and when needed. I get to council, correct, appraise, and compliment them daily.
Most importantly I get to know them personally. Nearly every single associate will come to me with their daily concerns and we always end up on a personal note about their lives. I like this part a lot. It makes them an individual, Human, an actual person and always a friend. I am lucky.
The management team at my store is Exceptional!! We have all worked together in a couple of different Kmart's over the last twenty five years. Take Five managers that all Love their Jobs, add 80-100 associates in a store that is successful in sales , stir and you have a delicious place to work. I am Very Thankful for My Job!!
