    Pros

    Often times challenging work environments produce the best learning and development opportunities. Sears has challenges galore! Now whether you'll learn anything other than being combative or how to deal in corporate politics is another matter.

    Cons

    Work hours are atrocious and depending on the team, your manager may be VERY inflexible in working with you to create a schedule that meets your needs. The commute from the city is horrid. Pay is ok but expensive healthcare plans, no 401k contributions (and a 2% cap on contributions for employees making over $115k) make it impossible to save for retirement, no bonus, hostile teams/business units that inhibit any cross-enterprise collaboration, terrible senior leadership, many with no retail experience, an untrustworthy, misguided chairman/ceo named Eddie Lampert, no clear company direction and rooms full of Eddie yes-men (those who do have solutions or see things different than Eddie are afraid to speak out), cheap with holidays (only 6), and overall poor morale and lack of employee engagement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a strategy that is more than just trendy buzzwords (integrated retail anyone) and that address Sears/Kmart customer needs - how does Shop Your Way add value for this customer, why is a loyalty program being trumpeted as groundbreaking? Stop wasting resources on stupid initiatives that don't produce revenue and attract customers, checking out via an iPad is more painful and cumbersome for customer as the things don't work half the time, and no one is going to adopt ShoppingIn...Start hiring senior leaders with retail/merchant backgrounds. Get out of apparel if you won't do it right, the quality and design is terrible - thinking of clothing that competes with us, you can find high quality pieces from old navy and trendier gear from h&m both competing in our price range. Lastly, stop kowtowing to Eddie, in 7 years he's proven he knows nothing about running retail.
