I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great work-life balance. Unless I have meetings then as long as I do my time then it doesn't matter what time I come in (i.e., 6-3, 7-4, 8-5). Lots of areas to explore when you want to take a break. If they like you here and you show results then you can get the world handed to you here.

Cons

I guess if you aren't working for a boss that helps you in your development then you might have a bad time. But if you don't like it then you can get out.

Advice to Management

Pay out bonuses and show more support of the actual stores.

    I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexability, open work schedule. perfect for a second job.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, with no possibility for a raise EVER!! could not live on the pay if you expect it to be your only job.

    Advice to Management

    To rebuild a company, you have to start at the base/foundation. what keeps Sears running? It is the people, salesmen and women who work hard to be helpful. All of Sears is represented through them. PAY THEM what they are worth. Doing this will rebuild the company the way that Sears should be rebuilt... Cut your costs, sale your buildings, close hometown stores, but these are all short term gains. Your people are your real asset!
