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

    Pros

    Sears is an amazingly transparent company: From the ground, its amazing how clearly and far up the beanstalk of business decisions and execution an appliance salesman can see.

    -Decent commission.
    -Very flexible hours.

    Cons

    -The burden of Sears' failure of execution while trying to sell----------anything.
    -The burden empathizing with customers over Sears' failure of execution.
    -The burden of watching training videos about Sears' failure of execution.
    -The dichotomy of TRS-80's and iPads
    -The irony of preferring the TRS-80 over the iPad.
    -Knowing what "single sign-on" is.
    -The cyclical dumbing-down and rejuvenation of your sense of disbelief.
    -Sears' foray into the adoption of modern technology to become "the world's greatest integrated retailer" can be likened to trying to install Windows 8 on a WWII battleship, with the expectation that it's crew will control it with iPads.
    -Wont be around much longer.

    I worked at Sears part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are a people person then you get to work with people and provide customer service, you get a discount on items in the store and online purchases.

    Cons

    They expect you to have no life and to work without hesitation or having other commitments. They do not respect you trying to further your education. Are not customer oriented all they see is numbers for sales, credit sign-ups or reward program sign-ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly care about your associates and what they are doing with their lives. Be supportive of the people who are trying to do their jobs.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
