ProsSears have been very good to me, you work hard you can go up in the company.
They have incentive to get you there.
They are very customer service, which I agree 100%.I would say that this compamy that I have made great friends through my customers and my co-w0rkers.

ConsThere at times is way too much paper work for associates to do or even management.
Recordings that you have to do , ,most of it they have access to it.
There is alot of double information. I imagine every company is the same.
.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think management are pretty fair with their staff , there is always a few that their job goes to their heads, but most of the time management are great to work with and are great with associates.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
