    My experience at Sears has been a roller coaster of ups and downs, mid level management is great! No Corporate Strategy!

    I have been working at Sears full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company allows you to explore new and innovative ways to do things.

    Cons

    Getting analytics is difficult. Business Units compete with one another instead of outside competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the team focused on a singular objective. Match the incentive program to this objective.

    I worked at Sears for less than a year

    Pros

    -My immediate supervisor was great. He never made me feel stupid if I had a question or if I needed to be shown how to do something again, and he actually respected me and my other coworkers.
    -Cashiering is pretty much the easiest job in the world.
    -I made a few friends that I still stay in touch with.

    Cons

    -Hated that the number of hours one got was based off of credit card applications.
    -Pay was low and there was no opportunity to advance to or learn a different position in the company, even when one expressed interest in doing so.
    -Almost all of the managers, except for two of them, acted like they were so far above everyone else and had horrible attitudes, especially towards us customer service cashiering people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a manager does not give you the right to be condescending towards your other employees; try to actually earn your employees' respect instead of throwing unrealistic expectations and bad attitudes at them.
