    I worked at Sears part-time

    Pros

    Great starting point for customer service job. Lots of interaction with customers from all backgrounds and excellent opportunity for improving teamwork skills.

    Cons

    Typical low pay of customer service job. No set hours, working holidays. Part-time means no benefits and less time spent with family

  2.  

    I liked the people I worked with, but I was very dissatisfied with the initiatives that were being implemented.

    Former Employee - Delivery Specialist/CCN (Home Services) in Round Rock, TX

    I worked at Sears part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    SHC was very flexible in working with my school schedule (for a while). My co-workers for the most part were really friendly. Amidst the constant overhaul, the camaraderie is apparent in certain key areas of the business, which made my days go by faster. The employee discounts were appeasing to an extent. If you exceeded or met your metrics, there were a lot of opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    Although the company is going through some restructuring, I feel as if the changes are things they've tried before, but being "packaged" in a different name. Additionally, although I mentioned advancement opportunities as a pro, I feel as if politics are involved with alot of employment decisions. The current plan isn't working and I'm certain further sell-off of key assets are in the near future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's clear to see that the current plan isn't working, but I don't think sell-off of further key assets are the answer. The constant cost-cutting is also very counterproductive. Try to leave your egos at home and start to think clearly. Finally, please hire people solely on their skills rather than using muddle-thinking and just bringing the people that you like along with you.
