    I worked at Sears full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not a 24 hour location

    Cons

    DM and above manage with bully tactics
    Company is always in some sort of crisis management
    Company did not live up to the benefits that were offered. Vacation benefits are frequently denied.
    Comp days for national holidays are strongly discouraged. You are made to feel like a heal if you want to use your benefit days
    During the interview process you are recruited on a 45 hour work schedule however you are expected to work closer to 60 hours week.
    There is NO work life balance
    Be prepared for "emergency" conference calls on your days off. These can last hours
    Most peer store managers are very self centered and not team oriented. Always in it for themselves.
    Expect anyone and everyone to stab you in the back for personal gain, It's the culture here.
    The reviews that say this is a good old boys club, sweat shop and constant crisis are sad but true.
    80% of refurbished merchandise comes to your store broken and your expected to deal with the angry customer after the sale. Sears repair can be out up to a month at a time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit blaming your poor decisions on your managers
