    I worked at Sears full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Regular paycheck. Schedule Flexibility. Decent hours. (Stores don't open super early.)

    Cons

    Always running. Always dealing with customer complaints that wouldn't exist if the company ran properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop chasing unproven strategies. Stop hounding every employee about credit apps. Stop hounding customers to apply for credit. It's chasing them away. FOCUS ON PROPER CUSTOMER SERVICE.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
