I have been working at Sears part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Flexible 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.

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

Raise 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.

    I worked at Sears full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Discount on purchases. Most of the time you are left alone to do your job.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Overworked during the holidays. They do not allow you to adjust procedures to make shrink go away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk in the shoes of a manager, then empower them to be able to make the appropriate changes to reduce shrink.
