I worked at Sears as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Large company, lots of resources, great work/life balance. Once upon a time, this was a nice, stable company to work for, with plenty of routine jobs.

Cons

Too bureaucratic, no direction, low morale, no innovation. Can't compete with the industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get everyone on the same page before they jump ship.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    National Company with good customer base

    Cons

    Too many ivory towers. Too many Chiefs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Separate Kmart and Sears. Get rid of the Presidents of Categories. Let the GMMs run the businesses. Get a CHIEF MERCHANT!

    I worked at Sears part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    When I first started the Sears Hardware store I worked for had direct deposit, benefits, retirement, insurance, vacation, and holiday pay.

    Cons

    Whoever hires the managers needs help! And who they sell stores to as well. I worked there for almost 3yrs after we were sold to a man who owned all the Churches Chickens in Texas (that didn't work well). People started quitting left and right, because our store manager refused to listen to us at all. He worked all the sales leads to the bones, to the point they were beyond stressed out. He left all management to them. Also, our assistant manager was a perv. I actually complained about it and was told I was insubordinate and I would be fired over a perv. So I left (for a job that gave me better pay and better hours).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff. If we are calling the HR for the owners because you are not doing your job that must say something. We work just as hard if not harder than you. Remember we all deal with the customers while most managers hide in the office.
