I have been working at Sears part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great atmosphere, fun people, it's an all in all a great place to work. For the most part, everyone gets along. I have enjoyed my time at Sears.

Cons

Overworked and underpaid. They expect way too much from you for only paying minimum wage. Hours can be inconsistent week to week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop focusing on SYWR, credit. It's not customer focused. There's a way to promote it and there's not a way. Yes, they're both great things if you shop, but we shouldn't have to shove it down everyone's throat.

    Current Employee - Backroom Associate

    I have been working at Sears full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly flexible schedule, employee discount, can wear shorts in the summer.

    Cons

    Looking for a salary increase annually? Not going to happen. Promotions? Only if the computer says so. You can work harder than anyone, but don't count on advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually speak to and interact with employees before you decide they aren't ready to be promoted. Promote hard workers, not suck ups.
