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

    Pros

    Big company with moderate cash flow. Lots of opportunity to grow within the organization.

    Cons

    Old Company with old process and procedures. The giant brick and morter boxes are a thing of the past and Sears needs to get with todays buyers/shoppers.
    Sears should update many of the older stores to have a new look and feel and quite frankly be more relavent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what your employees have to say.

    Ensure you are working towards a model that combines online with in store experience and shrink your store footprint.

    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.
