I worked at Sears part-time for more than a year

Pros

This was an easy job and it was not very fast-paced.

Cons

Terrible Management. Stupid corporate strategies and enforcement. Unethical sales of credit cards to elderly customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be respectful to your employees. Good employees are key to a successful business. Study management classes before being manager.

    I have been working at Sears full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay at management level. Workload is acceptable.

    Cons

    They move the target so your bonus is never obtainable. Sales goals are set so high and not close to realistic in today's economy. Seeking a 12% increase in sales in established store with less inventory and higher pricing is silly. Increase the pay of your sales associates. 4.50 an hour plus commission will get you nothing but bad return on investment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic expectations. Quit deviating from your plan. You manage by crisis and metric topic of the week. The potential is great if you would set short and long term goals.

    I worked at Sears full-time

    Pros

    When I first started there were many positives, tough to think of one now though.

    Cons

    Every thing went south with Lampbert. Hope he sells to some one who cares about people
