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

    Pros

    I work as a commissioned sales professional. I make about $20 an hour. Like all sales gigs, it's pretty up and down..some days are fantastic..some days are not..but when you average the 700 dollar days with the 'didn't make a dang thing' days..it all comes out to around 20 bucks an hr and I have worked a lot harder for a lot less in other places.

    Cons

    Not a very stable company, is it? Sears is basically a stepping stone--I'm learning about sales, getting some resume fodder and making decent money but I'd never be dumb enough to think of this place as a long term option. They probably won't last another five years. That's a shame, because there are a lot of very dedicated people here. Sears could have turned itself around, if only they were owned and run by someone who wasn't a vulture hell bent on squeezing every last drop of value out of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eddie Lampbert is too smart to take advice from me--I'd just tell him the same thing everyone else is telling him: Invest in your stores, Eddie. Stop micromanaging. Quit antagonizing customers w all this SYWC nonsense. Get rid of the stupid iPads--They don't work half the time and no one's impressed that we have them. Stick your foot up Delivery's butt so they stop screwing up. (Customers care waaaay more about their stuff getting there on time and getting there in one piece than they do about whether or not I rang them up using Apple products) Streamline the organization--it isn't necessary to have so many managers...and on and so on.. But I'm just a dumb salesman. Eddie is a genius.
