    Sears is a fantastic place to work that always takes care of their employees and sets them up for promotions.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI think the best part of working at Sears is that they promote from within the company. They like to take care of their own.

    ConsSometimes, you have to wonder what the head of the corporation is doing. There is a lot of talk of decline in stock, arguments in upper management, and poor choices being made.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBoot out Eddie. Bring in new talent.
