The WORST company I have ever worked for!!!!!

Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Hoffman Estates, IL

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

Pros

The location was close to where I reside.

Cons

Poor Management! Archaic Computer systems. Inefficient policies and procedures. Horrible benefits and non competitive salary. Excessive employee turnover with many positions never refilled. Morale at an all time low!, no career path, and most importantly NO WORK/LIFE BALANCE.
Sears doesn't care about you or your family and feels you should be happy that you have a job. They want you to sell you soul! You would make more on unemployment after you do the math!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You get more bees with honey than you do with vinegar!! Treat people with dignity and respect instead of threatening and intimidating! Hire qualified management that knows how to motivate and properly train their employees and help them prosper. Show value in the employees rather than burn them out and run them out! Change the culture to make it a more friendly place and comfortable environment to work in. Stop treating employees like inmates!

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    If you have a good manager scheduling is very flexible around school and other things.

    Cons

    Too many things are expected of you. They are worried more about things that aren't sales. Also every month there is a different metric that is more emphasized then others.
