    I worked at Sears (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There used to be many pros now the company just feels like a sinking ship.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Pressure and stress on a constant daily basis to make numbers. Absolutely no training hours given for new associates. No raises or incentives for well over 7 years. Corporate, regional and district management have no reality or concern with all the daily problems or issues that management faces at the store level that are beyond our control, Keep cutting and cutting back on payroll and positions. The list could go on and on. Morale and energy down the drain. Clean up and remodel the run down and embarrassing stores. Rarely allowed a holiday off.

    Advice to Management

    You are going to continue to lose great associates if you can't understand the basic concept that you must invest in your people and train them properly if you are going to ever get yourself out if this hole the company has dug for itself. I left a long and successful career because I just couldn't stand the direction this company has gone since Eddie Lsmbert took over. I was a good and extremely loyal employee (asked to stay after I put in my notice) and just couldn't stand it anymore. At least 7 full time and long term associates have left since I have left. For years I thought the grass wouldn't be greener and now I have a new employer and they are wonderful! Reminds me of the "old Sears" that I so miss. I have and will continue to recruit associates to work for my new employer.
