Pros

For six hours between Thanksgiving and Christmas, this job seeker was able to bring home a bit more money than otherwise. The location in question added hundreds of employees right before the holidays. This applicant believes the purpose of hiring was to encourage holiday shopping at Sears. Each new hire was given a "Shop Your Way" rewards cards and an employee discount.

Cons

The tax survey screening incorrectly assigned tax credits and status as a veteran.

Advice to Management

Instead of hiring in-volume, hire only enough people to whom you can give reasonable hours. Fix the tax-credit screening process so that only legitimate benefits are claimed. Employees shouldn't be asked to sign documents that contain false information.

    getting new friends, learning how to do the cash register, and meeting friendly associates to work with.

    The softline manager harassed the merchandising and pricing associates and is horrible and awful. The commission is not good for the mcas(need to be raised).

    Softline manager needs to how to talk to people because she or he don't know how to and stop harassing the merchandising and pricing associate.
