    If you're okay with 13 bucks an hour for 10-15 hours a week, Sears'll work for ya!

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Novi, MI
    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Novi, MI
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you like customer service, a good place to work, can make decent money in peak seasons, not a physical job.

    Cons

    No recognition for a job well done. If you don't sell a high percentage of protection agreements, installs, and credit apps, you are dirt to them....and you will not get hours, and will eventually be let go...some employees are cut throat, especially the old timers, they will steal your sales in a heartbeat. Management definitely needs team building skills. Out of about 10 managers there, only about 3 are competent enough to command respect from employees. The Store Manager is above reproach, but it goes downhill from there. Finally, there is absolutely no room for advancement, even from part time to full time....forget about it!

    Advice to Management

    Teamwork, better training for employees on product knowledge and the constantly changing policies. Recognize employees for their HARD work. Some of the Protection Agreements are outlandishly overpriced, and assembly on fitness equipment such as a stationary bike...50% of the price of the product?....come on guys.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Understanding of the need for a healthy balance between work and home life. Exposure to many different areas of business. Expanding your skill set and seeking out opportunities internally is encouraged. Ideas on the team I work on are heard and leadership has a lot of faith in the people executing the tasks they are assigned to do.

    Cons

    Adapting to new things is somewhat difficult. It's often hard to integrate due to old standards and policies that have been in place too long and need updating. The culture could be better. Overall vision doesn't make it very far down the food chain.

    Advice to Management

    The values, atmosphere, and culture we hold here at corporate doesn't seem to travel into the retail stores.
