    Current Employee - Project Consultant

    I have been working at Sears full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Preset sales appointments
    - Great training on products and procedures
    - Tight knit team
    - Management really cares about individual employee success

    Cons

    - Commission based
    - Long days
    - Lots of traveling
    - Occasionally an appointment isn't properly vetted
    - Prices are not always economically competitive; Sears offers an incredible product and has great security for consumers, however Sears is competing against small companies selling similar products but that are of lesser quality and cost. For consumers shopping on price point and not quality or stability it is difficult to compete.

I say retail, you say real estate giant. Time will tell for Sears Holdings, the corporation created by the acquisition of troubled department store operator Sears, Roebuck and Co. by Kmart Holding Corp. The megamerger created one of the nation's largest retailers with about 4,000 stores in North America.
