I worked at Sears

Pros

Good hours nice customers ok. The benefits could definitely be better but at least passable. Sears is in serious trouble along with K-Mart stores. Hopefully we can think of some good changes so that there will be some decent growth.

Cons

Low pay not very good benefits. Job security is very iffy and unstable. Sears used ot be such a reputable store and so important in the history of USA retail.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Raise salaries get us better benefits. Better health health insurance. More vacation time and holiday pay increased would be absolutely wonderful. That would be really great. All employees would greatly appreciate that.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    I still have not found a job that I can make as good or better money than Sears. It was very structured. There was a clear order of who to report to when there was an issue.

    Cons

    The day to day job duties seemed to change depending on who you ask. There was almost never congratulations unless you were the #1 in the entire region. It was very difficult trying to hire good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't focus so much on the details. The big picture needs to be perfect before you start nit-picking about the details.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    Promotion opportunities and the vastness of the corporation allows someone to do different things.

    Cons

    Too much of a silo organization with very poor planning and communication to field level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start from scratch and eliminate the people in corporate that have jobs to just have jobs. Too much job validation in corporate causing chaos throughout organization.
