    Good place to work in college, but doesn't pay enough.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    Works well around school schedule. Thats about it.

    Cons

    Not good enough pay. Warehouse gets all the hard work around the store. They expect us to get all this stuff done and don't give us enough hours or manpower to do it all. They don't really give us any raises. I've worked here for two years and had one, and that was the raise everyone got at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GIVE US MORE MONEY!! The warehouse works harder than everyone else and should be compensated for it.

    I worked at Sears part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you kiss the managers' asses you can get acknowledged. Otherwise, even hard-working employees go unnoticed. The only real positive I saw was that they are so desperate to hire people that it's easy to get a job there.

    Cons

    The management at Sears I worked was very "below the line" in the way they managed their employees. Pitching Shop Your Way is a joke and they often played favorites, giving special treatment to the associates who would sit and b.s. with them. Dealing with the annoying customers was exhausting and just the overall "feel" of Sears is negative when you walk in. I would not recommend to work for this company.
