Not Bad, But Could AND SHOULD Be Better

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Little Rock, AR

ProsFlexible scheduling.
Good products to sell in the "Hardlines" area.
A great department manager in my store.
Fantastic co-workers.
Decent employee discount on some items.

ConsThe customer traffic at Sears seems to be getting thinner and thinner as time goes by.
Low base bay with not-generous-enough commissions.
Understaffed in many departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementRaise the pay.

Allow some leeway in pricing. In this day of consumer advocates on TV and radio telling people that everything is negotiable, we need to be able to let our customers do that. I've lost too many sales because someone down the street is willing to lower their list price to beat us.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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