I worked at Sears part-time for more than a year
Pros – I enjoyed working at Sears, in Hardware, Lawn and Garden, and then Appliances. It was fun, and most of the employees are friendly and fun. I always got along great with the management team as well.
Cons – Pay is not the greatest, but not the worst either.
Advice to Senior Management – Please put less sales people on the floor. That made it really hard to make any money.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Sears
Pros – - There's room for advancement and moving around in the company most of the time.
- Nice co-workers for the most part.
- I was praised often for signing customers up for credit cards and rewards programs.
Cons – Management doesn't have their act together. I've been an employee at Sears for a month and, while my employee ID number was assigned, I've never been able to use it to punch in/out for shifts. This meant I had to use punch correction slips every week, which became very frustrating. After bringing this to the attention of my managers, I was repeatedly answered with, "I'll look into that." The issue was never resolved.
On top of that, despite my time with the company, I am still not included on weekly schedules when posted. I have to run to the back and ask for a schedule to be made. One week, I was given 3 different schedules by 3 different managers because I "still wasn't in the system". After a month! This lead to enormous confusion and tongue lashings that I did not deserve.
Furthermore, while I was trained well enough to operate a register, 90% of the job I had to teach myself or learn from trial and error. When I asked for advice on how to do a certain command on the computer, like a discount or a return or whatever, I was met with rolled eyes and exasperated sighs.
Advice to Senior Management – When you say you'll look into an employee's troubles/issues, follow through.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
