I worked at Sears part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Generous commission structure if you are part time. Remember that if you're coming in as a full commission salesperson it will be up to you to solve issues and make up for negative experiences with delivery, installation, and murky language about protection agreements.

Cons

No upward mobility, constant air of disposability as an associate. If you are not around on the day that a big issue happens you're at the behest of outsourced phone systems for help, unresponsive outsourced delivery, and field technicians who may disagree from visit to visit. Leads to a lot of cancellations and loss of repeat business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Place emphasis on customer service instead of bottom dollar sales.
