I have been working at Sears full-time (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

    Pros

    Nice campus. They want me to enter a longer description, but that's it.

    Cons

    The company is run by a Gordon Gecko wannabe who has been slowly stripping assets to line his pockets. At least Gecko would've been quick about it. Watching the dismantling of such a storied brand while playing fast and loose with the livelihood of 300k employees is painful.

    Beyond the Eddie issue, SHC is a collection of incompetence (I have never worked with people as bad at what they do as I did while at SHC) and sociopathic behavior. Lunatic senior management that enjoys public flogging and humiliation of their staff prevails. The way lower staff speaks to management is unusually combative as well. When people are not being combative, they are being apathetic. There is no middle ground of open dialogue and collaboration. Behavior like this would get you in hot water in any other company I've ever been at. But it is the norm at SHC.

    If you can get past the fact that the company is already dead and that the environment is toxic, you still have to contend with the fact that nothing works. Aging infrastructure, no capital improvements, a convoluted P&L model for over 30 business units resulting in red tape that would make the government embarrassed, and you have a recipe for dysfunction.

    Do some research if you come here. Read the articles (not stock rating analysis). Then read them again. This place is even more broken than the business press has conveyed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Liquidate and spare America the sight of a once great retailer continuing to flounder for the next 10 years.

    I have been working at Sears full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are nice because you don't have to work late.

    Cons

    You don't work 40 hours a week it would be nice to be able to work 40 hours a week it would make a difference on your paycheck. It is so hard to make ends meet and trying to live. The hours are nice because your not working to late. The selling of the credit application is not worth what they pay you for them it would be nice to just get paid more than making minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay raises and working full time employees 40 hours a week
