I have been working at Sears part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

You could easily shoot up in this company if you are intelligent and hardworking, because those that work here are often not very strong competition.
If you are a good employee, they can be very flexible with hours.

Cons

You have virtually no control over the processes you are asked to oversee; the systems are slow and out-of-date, and you often feel completely unimportant because you are given an archaic, frustrating toolkit.
Full-time employment is nearly unheard of in non-sales, non-management roles.
Pay is awful, and getting above minimum wage is a difficult and rarely actualized pursuit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate management needs to trim the fat, and focus more on dollars-per-square-foot in their stores so they look and feel less like a Big Lots and a Pay Less, and more like a Macy's and a Lowe's.

    I worked at Sears full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Mediocre employee discounts. Some very nice employees there to work with. Decent work hours almost never home later than 9 p.m..

    Cons

    Crummy store fixtures, tiles, shelving, lighting. Just an overall vastly neglected sales floor, looks, well....schlumpy, dark and outdated! Cash registers from the last century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please update your stores! The facilities are in terrible shape as are the cash registers. Invest a little money in your future so you can compete with the competition.
