I worked at Sears part-time (less than a year)

Pros

The break room, and the day I quit.

Cons

This company is a joke! Most managers don't have a clue. Most workers can't speak English, including management. They train you to trick customers to open credit cards. I

    I worked at Sears

    Pros

    Many of the Employees are very dedicated and customer-service focused. They are willing to help others and sacrifice a lot of their personal time to try and help a company which has been struggling since 2005. It is a good training ground for recent college graduates.

    Cons

    There is no matching 401k. Benefits are cut annually to help shore up their negative cash flow. General raises have not been given in over 6 years. The more you learn, the more hours they expect you to put in. They talk open management and encourage feedback, but you would be prudent not to share any negative comments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management starts at the very top. Eddie Lampert is only interested in redirecting profits to ESL Holdings, so Sears is left rudderless and stores continue to deteriorate.

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

    Pros

    The company is big on training, with new training updates every month. And refresher training every quarter. Mandatory meal breaks, and associate discounts on all purchases including sales and specials.

    Cons

    Upper management (Store Manager & Assistant Store Manager) always use negative-reinforcement While lower management (Area managers & Department Leads) use more positive outlook. Safety is 'preached' but it is impossible to get motorized equipment repaired due to it effecting the 'bottom-line'. Therefore requiring the backroom team to use improper equipment to place & retrieve large items from shelving racks. They will not order the proper supplies to get the job done right and on time safely, but still require you to do it right and on time. They do not hire from within the store in regards to promotions. And are constantly loosing quality people to other employers do to all the above and more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You ask people to do a job for you. So you set them in front of a computer and tell them to learn. Once they are finished with their "training" you set them off to do the job for hired them to do. When that employee makes a mistake or asks for confirmation on a process, don't say "didn't you finish your training?" or "you should know this already." Take the 5 minutes to help them through the situation and help to make them a better employee, not a bitter one.
