I worked at Sears part-time (more than an year)

Pros

They were very accommodating to my schedule as a student.

Cons

Retail is very boring and your hours are based on how many credit car applications you at able to get. Sometime it feels as though you have to trick people into paying for credit cards with outrageous interest rates.

    I have been working at Sears part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At first I liked the people I worked with. Our store manager at the time was very good at getting us motivated to work and sell inventory. At first I liked that we earned sales commission but later I found out that this was a technique to cheat us out of a fair wage.

    Cons

    I was a part-time employee that worked 40 hours a week without any benefits. Even if I was full time the health insurance was so expensive that I would not be able to afford it. Also there is a 401k retirement offered but with the low pay (18k/year) I was not able to save for retirement. I also worked there for 3 years and never received a raise. I worked here for 3 years total. On my last year we went from having a total of 6 people per shift on tires to one person opening and two people closing. The shortage of workers created unnecessary stress on employees and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sears needs to pay a living wage and keep the store adequately staffed. The lack of giving raises encourages employees to leave after a few months of working and increases turnover rate.
