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 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of part time jobs available if you can only work a few hours

    Cons

    Low pay, no raises
    Very few full time positions
    Unless you are in commissioned sales, you will work extremely hard an be told you didn't do enough
    Pressure to not take 15 minute breaks, even though you are doing physical labor
    Upper management does not care about their employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is clear that management has no idea that they are assigning way too much work to one person, or that they do not care. They working conditions are horrible, and the pay is very low. Sears needs to either raise the pay, or make the working conditions tolerable

    I worked at Sears part-time for 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.
