Hiring was just an excuse to "Shop Your Way"

I worked at Sears part-time (less than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    Pros

    Can no longer think of any.

    Cons

    I've been in retail for 35 years and this is by far the most poorly run company I've ever had the misfortune to work for.Terrible benefits that are constantly getting cut back. The company finds more and more ways to shrink commissions while hiding these cuts behind hard to reach performance goals. Constant pressure on store associates to meet higher and higher results while upper management gets Florida vacations on the backs of their workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth! Make store associates part of any of these contests. Restart the 401 plan so your employees won't have to live on just Social Security and Food Stamps. Make the performance bonus attainable after all the company cut the commissions 1% just to give .5% back if performance goals are met, the company will come out .5% ahead . Recognize that your employees are your most valuable assets and you'll get better customer service. How can you expect your workers to care about the customers if you, Sears, doesn't care about your' workers.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    You can make considerable money if customers are actually buying items, which is sometimes rare. Fully commissioned pay

    Cons

    Fully commissioned pay, sucks when there is no body there to buy anything. Holidays do not exist here, you always work
