I learned a great deal about the consultative selling model, but did not experience the opportunities and growth.

Pros

Digital world growth. Selling process.

Cons

Micromanagement. Outlier environment. Focus on negatives instead of enhancing positives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many priorities, not enough focus. Focus on sales and store facilities.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    Employee discounts, consistent paycheck,
    company has been around a long time

    Cons

    management has to be more concerend for paperwork then actually working the store. Some managers need to be replaced....sears drags their feet in this respect.....promotions are based on who is doing the promotions.
    need to kiss butt to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    drop the severe paper chase.
    Pay a living wage
    promote those who can and will lead by example.

    Pros

    Some of the departments pay the sales associates on a commission basis.

    Cons

    The training program is weak. It is almost entirely computer based training. Most of the managers lack leadership skills and are frequently ignorant of storewide operations and procedures. The compensation is lousy for most employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some managers who know how to motivate and lead a diverse workforce. Take more time to train your new sales associates. Increase compensation for all workers.
