Pros

The program was well run, especially if you were a BAP. It gave you access to upper level management, training in different systems, and the ability to work on a project that could make an actual difference in your division.

Cons

There was a disconnect between the Executive Leadership's vision and the day to day operations which could be frustrating. Turnover was high leaving some interns high and dry when trying to get a hold of past data.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your team and learn the jobs you expect them to learn. Working with your team provides a strong bond within the team creating success - however, consistancy must be firm across the board.

    Pros

    I worked as a shoe salesman and I liked the commission structure. It was not as good as other department stores but it was still an incentive to work harder.

    Cons

    There is no incentive to advance to a managerial position because of the constant turnover. I worked at Sears for 8 months and had 4 different managers. I would never want to be a manager because the work load is ridiculous for the amount of pay. The security of the job is also terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a better way to retain good management.
