I have been working at Sears

Pros

flexible hours, upbeat work environment, good discount on sears products, management did well, benefits were ok, great as a 1st job to learn sales.

Cons

The con will be the telemarketing part, it's not easy cold calling people and getting a positive feedback. If you don't mind sitting and doing cold calls, it's not that bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The constant positive attitude rubbed well with employees, it's not easy working in that environment and attempting to do fun things worked well.

    I worked at Sears

    Pros

    You get a nice laid back atmosphere. The work is interesting if you find home improvement to be fascinating. Also, you get to take breaks.

    Cons

    The pay is not good. The day is long. The sun rises slowly and sets slowly. Sometimes you want to eat candy but cannot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more money to those of us who can barely afford the candy bar snack that we try to earn everyday.

  2. Nice place to learn photography basics, but NOT for long term job!

    Pros

    Learn photography skills and computer photo editing basics, sales and cash handling experience, employee PHOTO discount is great (about 75%, depending on how generous your manager is), but good luck getting your Sears store discount!

    Cons

    It gets crazy at Christmas time! Customer complaints about photos already ordered make it impossible to get complete satisfaction. Worked there 8 months and never got employee discount from Sears Store. Was also promised $0.50 raise for every skills test I passed. I passed two tests and never received raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give raises when promised/ earned. Understand that sometimes the customer expects more than we can provide. Be specific in policy changes (esp. dress code changes)
