    Current Employee - Strategic Development Manager in Hoffman Estates, IL

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

    Pros

    The company is huge and has lots of opportunities for advancement
    Relaxed work environment & friendly people
    Company is always trying new things and seeking to improve tools/processes.
    Lot's of "low hanging fruit". All it takes is some drive and a person can do well here.

    Cons

    No 401k match
    Depending on your area, very hard to bonus
    No tuition reimbursement
    Lot's of "red tape" to get significant operational changes done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the benefits package to retain top talent.

    Former Employee - Brand Central Sales in Cincinnati, OH
    Former Employee - Brand Central Sales in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Sears part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great for students and for seasonal holiday help in commissioned sales.
    Department managers and most leads pretty good to work with, unless they are SHC Career Lifer wannabes, then they are uncaring robots
    Most employees share a we are all in it together and there is good comraderie amongst peers

    Cons

    You cannot survive and make a career at sales with this company in present enviroment, only stars are tenured reps that have taken a commission beating at ownership whim.
    HR lead, just another lead, no HR experience needed none delivered
    stuck in the 80's mentality regarding promos, marketing, indifference to competition in the marketplace regarding value of customers in/thru the store vs price to bring those customers in and retain or convert them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the old days, when sales at Sears could be a career
    Senior Management (SM,BCM,ASM) very good
