    I have been working at Sears full-time

    Pros

    They have a great training program if you are unfamiliar with the products Most of the training is a hands on experience so you are able to learn faster

    Cons

    Not a permanent schedule. One weeks hours maybe totally different then the next week. Commission are not always the best. Always rumors about stores closing

    Advice to Management

    If you have a good staff, let them run through their paces. As long as they are doing the job and following policy, let them do it. Don't try to change it.

    Pros

    You get to engage with members and it feels good to make sure they leave satisfied. Also it's not as demanding as the food industry and it's a decent pace

    Cons

    Scheduling is unpredictable and you might get sucked into secret drama by vindictive employees. Staying neutral will solve that problem.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with scheduling.
