    Former Employee - Cashier  in  Langhorne, PA
    Former Employee - Cashier in Langhorne, PA

    I worked at Sears part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Easy to learn register
    - Other associates are friendly
    - It's a job
    - Job requires no previous experience
    - Goals are clearly outlined
    - Member rally's are actually engaging and somewhat fun (better than the boring old meetings)
    - Request off procedures are fair and you usually get the days off you want

    Cons

    - You do not receive all of your breaks (Associate policy handbook says you are "entitled" to a 15 minute break for every 4 hours of work. They told us we are "not entitled" and that it isn't promised to us or required. Sears obviously doesn't know the definition of entitled).

    - Poor replacement procedures. When someone calls out they don't have enough (or just don't even if they did) call someone to work that department. This creates an uncomfortable situation for both the associates and customers. Customers get irritated that lines are long and they have to go hunting for another register. Associates miss out on breaks because the Break person or Floater are then required to work that section.

    - Credit pushing fuels anxiety. It's really hard to stay on goal sometimes. You get nagged and pushed by management the second you go negative (even if you do well overall). Shop Your Way Rewards is actually a very easy metric to meet though. If you suck at getting credits your hours are reduced quickly to let higher credit earners more floor time. If you are a high credit earner you almost get too many hours and don't get the benefits of full-time workers even if you work the same amount of hours. They've taken away options (the third sears card - Sears Plus) but increased the goal making it harder to reach the metric goals.

    - Don't do this job if you can't handle criticism and customer attitudes. Like all retail positions you have to work with customers who can be demanding and rude at times. We've had customers say very, very mean things and you just have to deal with it

    - No room for growth. I was there almost a year and no raises or furthering opportunities. Others who have worked there long also haven't received raises. The only one's who get paid more than minimum wage are associates who have been there 10+ years.

    - Goodbye weekends. Most retail jobs have this but it's another con. You are expected to be available for every day and during all store hours. If you want all weekends off you might not get hired.

    - Two week vs Next Weeks Schedule. You are required to give two weeks notice for any days you want off but you don't get your schedule until 2-3 days before the next work week starts. It's really hard to make plans in advance (even on a week to week basis).

    - Minimum wage ($7.25) is poor compensation for the job and they've increased the amount of work you have to do. As a cashier you are expected to do MCA work during down time and MCA's are expected to ring on the registers when it gets busy. It makes things harder and more stressful. MCA's are sometimes not able to get all of their work done because of these issues. Even upping the pay to 8-9$ and hour would be sufficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your own policy handbook and make sure to use the correct terms.
    Don't give into customers so easily.
    The mark down procedures are silly (different colors go lower on clearance?)
    Keep all associates at the same rules (write up everyone who is late without calling, etc.)
    Hire more people and treat the people you have hired fairly.
