    Advice to Management

    Start thinking of Sears as a single company. The idea that every business unit can be a profit center in rediculous.

  2. I enjoyed working at Sears. I met so many great people and had the opportunity to network with many top executives.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to network with many top executives. I learned a lot throughout the course of my 12-week internship.

    Cons

    I would say that the only downside to working with Sears is the fact that they do not offer the full-time employees the 401k matching package.

    Advice to Management

    I think that this company has a very unique atmosphere and everyone that works here is very friendly and nice.
