I have been working at Sears

Pros

I can just stand around and talk to people (im a salesman), they wont fire you unless you steal or do something really dumb, pay is pretty good for sales (if you are good/decent/know how to talk to people).

Cons

problems dont get fixed as quickly as they should, its retail, so you get bad customers sometimes. They mess around with your commission rates (at least they have recently, i guess its because of the bad economy and whatnot.) MCA's (people who clean up clothes etc dont get paid what they should. theyre the hardest working people in the store and get paid minimum. they were paid higher, until the minimum wage was increased. at my store, the air conditioning goes out a lot. they might just be doing that to save money though. thats what ive heard from some people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

ask your associates for feedback. acknowledge when they are doing a good job.

    Pros

    Sears is a company that will provide opportunity for advancement for those willing to work longer hours and who are looking to grow within the company. The hours necessary for managers may be quite a bit, especially in peak times of the year such as during the holiday shopping season. However, if the performance and the willingness to develop your skills, you can get ahead with this compane.

    Cons

    Sears can place very high demands on employees, especially sales associates and sales managers, to meet high quotas/sales goals. Sears can be quick to terminate associates who are not able to meet these goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that sales are not always able to be met and that there are more things involved in the business other than just selling merchandise repair agreements.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    There aren't too many Best reasons to work for Sears . It was nice to meet new people and see new faces while working there . I like how they'll give their own employees the opportunity for a higher position before hiring someone else outside of the building . Scheduling was sometimes nice with getting off early but sometimes you got stuck with staying later than you thought because of new tasks to finish up . It's a good job for people that only want to work part time while going to school or to work another job . .

    Cons

    The pay is a big downside of Sears . When I first started the pay was a little bit above minimum wage but not that much . So if you only work about 20 - 25 hours per week your check was ugly . Then they love to hire you part time but you end up working full time hours but you're not receiving any of the benefits that full time employees receive such as paid time off . After working a year you only get a 10 cent raise . They barely wanted to give you time off when you ask for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To raise the pay and allow part time employees to collect vacation time off also .
