I have been working at Sears

Pros

I love being able to help customers and always be on the floor, not cooped up at a desk. I get to learn to do everything in the store so I can help wherever is needed. Right now i am in charge of the electronics department and it is much better having a specific department to which you are accountable and can focus all your time. Most of the time I love my job.

Cons

The manager doesn't really give me too much the time of day, and I have been to a store where the ASM's just ignore me and don't find it worth their time to train me. (the store I am currently at though, all the ASM's are excellent and very helpful). I have to work every single saturday and every other sunday, which leaves me little time to be with my family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not micro manage. Train and then give us responsibility so that we can prove what we have learned and that we are great managers.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    free tech adoption, friendly working environment, great team build, well organized, nice location in chicago sub area so no traffic in normal days

    Cons

    retail industry not stable and benefit is not the best, midwest winter season is chilly; expensive living in the area although better than california

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the industry can not be changed but the benefit package can be changed; for associates like me, the company must match the industry average level for benefit at least

    Pros

    You receive Weekly pay, fast pace environment, times moves fast, union fights for raises, promote with in, overtime hours if wanted

    Cons

    the employees are overworked and underpaid. Workers are forced to work overtime almost every day.Management seems to not to care about their workers personal lives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont forces employees to work 2-4 hours over time each day then complain about workers calling off the following day because they are overworked. Also develop a better time in and out policy
