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

Pros

- People are nice, they look out for one another.
- Work environment isn't too stressful, you may get a grouchy customer once in awhile though.
- Overall, the best thing is that you have someone to talk too through times when nobody is in the store.

Cons

- Sears has ancient technology.
- You have to stand all day long, with little breaks. Starts to hurt your feet.
- Management can be overly precise at times. Mostly though, they want you to get credits and you get a feeling of being looked down upon if you don't meet your credit quota, even if you had no customers during the day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work with your employees a little more, and don't stress the credits too much. The people that really want to earn them do, but asking a customer 3 times for credit is off putting.

    I have been working at Sears as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of smart, talented people who want to make changes. Some battles have been won, others...

    Cons

    Too much old guard. Employees "living" here for 30 years. The old guard mentality prevents changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Out with the old in with the new

    I have been working at Sears part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Discount on already cheap merchandise
    Fellow minimum wage employees were always friendly

    Cons

    HR representative was having an affair with the head manager
    Limited staff
    More focused on getting credit cards than anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management at my local Waco Sears was always clueless. We would get in mountains of freight when we already had limited room.
    There has been a "Now Hiring" sign up at the Waco Sears for almost three years. They are desperate for applicants, so they sugarcoat the job so people with agree to work there.
