    Pros

    manager leaves me alone for the most part...I am not part of her clique

    Cons

    if you are not part of the store managers circle of friends you get crappy shifts and don't get holidays and the store manager chooses when you can go on vacation or have days off...no support or training, hope you already have some common sense when you walk in the door because you are on your own. no raises in the past 5 years. contests for financial gain given with unattainable goals.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and understand that your staff and their families are just as important as you and your family. Stop playing the silly childish games and treat everyone equally and stop retaliating when your staff reports you to the human resources departments. It makes the company look worse when you have everyone thinking that you are never wrong for treating people the way you do.

    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 Management

    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.
