    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    Sears Holdings Mission Statement and supporting cultural ideas that promote excellence through ingenuity by receiving and giving constant feedback. Focused Recognition tools are utilized daily to ensure everyone is recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty.

    Cons

    Recovering from the economic downturn is not an easy thing for a company to do. I encourage Sears to join the wave of the future and remain open to embracing the latest technology, Sometimes we receive word that changes for the better get stopped because "we never did it that way before" when in fact, that's exactly why we should be open to trying them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing! Listen to your employees...they are your best asset. Move forward with the cultural value and change the negative stigma that Sears started to gain. If people could see what's going on behind the scenes now, everyone would want to join us to work here!

    Application Details

    Interview Details

    Campus Interview for 1 hour; Two guys there, the first man was very friendly but the second was kind of rude and impolite anyway. Not sure why they would send someone with terrible communication skills and hiring knowledge. Half hour for either of them.Questions in first talk were unbelievable easy but then I met the second guy who is doing coding things in the company. Basically they use Java in Sears.

    Interview Questions
    • In circus people own characteristics of height and weight and can stand on other one's shoulder if lower and lighter.

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. Though it has since lost ground, the holding company steers the varied retail operations of Sears (about 840 US department stores) and Kmart (about 1,300 discount outlets), which continue to operate separately under their familiar brand names.
