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 Management

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 Management

    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.


  2. STAY AWAY

    Pros

    There are none, the company is very top heavy and every one fears the manager above them. Ive never worked at a place like that where its pretty much always being on call for when corporates coming in.

    Cons

    Pay, the way the store is managed, employees who are just going through the motions, random company instated programs that waste time and money and are never seen through, lack of respect, fearing every day that you could lose your job if you dont sell all the right accessories.

    Advice to Management

    Don't act better than your entry level employees, alot of them at college students who could take your job in a heartbeat. Value there opinion more than one of your assistants. Dont play favorites, Change the way the store is run dont focus on tangibles as much as people.
