    I have been working at Sears full-time (more than an year)


    Good pay (at least for Post grads)
    Very laid back culture- so negligible stress
    Lots of facilities such as bank, store, laundry, auto center, day care center, etc on campus


    Too slow paced - high chance of getting complacent
    Too many management changes - future of the company uncertain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit the right people in management based on previous experience and skill sets instead of just the college degree.

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.
