    Great for seasonal or part-time work or as a first job for a student.

    I worked at Sears

    Pros

    Manager keeps us in the loop on important metrics.

    Managers usually available and present on the floor.

    Managers generally don't put themselves on a pedestal - they act humble.

    Cons

    So many acronyms! I was an MCA but didn't even know what MCA stood for until about a month after I took the job. (It means Merchandise and Customer Assist, by the way). I still don't know what many of the terms mean.

    While most co-workers were friendly, a few seemed impatient.

    Almost all of the merchandise pick-up team is male. Women can carry heavy objects too (more than some of us guys could, myself included)!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect what we're doing to the overall success of the company - how are WE helping Sears succeed? Also, get employees more involved in community service projects.

    I worked at Sears

    Pros

    * The name "Sears" looks good on a resume
    * Some co-workers are actually open and helpful

    Cons

    * Way too cliquish
    * Main Supervisor more focused on chatting in social media than doing their job
    * Too much micromanagement
    * Poor internal communication
    * Lack of rationale for business decisions
    * Spent more time taking on non-essential tasks than those directly related to position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might want to take a serious look internally - many of your people are doing jobs that they are either not willing - or able - to perform. The fact that your company is now being seen as performing poorly speaks volumes about the quality of your internal leadership.
