    Pros

    Sears prepares their employees to succeed by providing good sales training much like the military prepares soldiers for good jobs in civilian life.

    Cons

    Sears use to be a place where in employee could earn a living wage with good benefits. Regrettably this is no longer the case. The old-timers are the only employees working in the retail stores who earn decent wages with decent benefits. Newer hires don't earn a living wage or have a good benefits package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Edward Lampert should stop managing his work force as if they were only cogs in an operation or numbers on a spread sheet. Instead they should be treated as people.
