    I worked at Sears full-time (more than 5 years)


    Very nice managers , co- workers are great
    Quality appliances at very reasonable price
    Pay is competitive with other retailers


    Price on extended warranties is should be a little lower
    Too much pressure to push sears credit cards
    Benefits could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower the price of the extended warranties so customers can afford them
    Better benefits for full and part time worker
    Less pressure to push for a sears credit card

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Interview Details

    5 interviews...only 1 in person. Interview questions were not specific and some of the interviewers you could tell really didn't care...they were just trying to push you thru. The regional interview was the biggest joke. The district manager is not very bright. The district h.r. is incompetent.

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.
