I worked at Sears full-time (more than a year)

Pros

new application of company culture, a lot of opportunity and support within the store, fun team environment, felt appreciated for the work that i put in and results achieved, flexible to change

Cons

seems political at the corporate level, a lot of stress caused to the management team at the store even when great results and growth was being made

Advice to ManagementAdvice

didn't know them well enough but it seems like they are doing a lot of restructuring to give the best to employees

    Pros

    if your a people person you will meet different people with different stories in different walks in life and you can learn from each one.

    Cons

    no respect from managers, they use you when they need you and you will never reep the rewards of your dedication to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    respect your workers view them as human beings and not as your time clock, value everyone's opinions and maybe implemented change can stick.

    Former Employee - Senior Leadership Program

    I worked at Sears full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growth in the online business
    If you're part of the Leadership program, you will get exposure to top management and placed in strategic projects.

    Cons

    No strong strategy and execution in brick and mortar stores even though the stores still generate the biggest portion of the revenue. CEO is interested in implementing new technology, but not sure it resonates with the typical Sears customers.
    Business units are forced to compete with each other as each has its own P&L and hence there's no cohesive strategy among the different business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO is micro manager who doesn't take feedback.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
