Pros

Good pay, good benefits, good training and good people.

Cons

Management lied about promoting from within. I don't know if the whole company is that way, but the hiring manager that hired me was. Upper management are not good at developing promising employees.

    Pros

    Money could be good depending on your location, very easy.

    Cons

    You become very lazy because the job allows it, sears isn't going in the right direction, you can see the decline in business, your rates of pay change in a weeks notice, in San Diego at least it's worse than a used car lot there could be up to 22 associates on the floor working at one time. Sears wants pressure sales associates that want numbers, I considered myself as honest being I didn't recommend over priced PA's Or protection agreements to everyone, i.e. a refrigerator will cost someone 1000$ where as sears wants to to sell them a ''PA'' for 500$ for 50% of the cost for only 5 years isn't a great value. The company is leaning toward internet business, i.e. if you price match SEARS.COM you get a 1.2% commision cut on the item, when you're only making 3% off of it. This once was a great part time or full time job but the company isn't what it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what a Sears store once stood for, great customer service and treat the employees like you care for them, Sears sells itself you need to get your associates to back you also before it's to late.
