    Pros

    This company in it's heyday was the best company to work for. It maintained the close network and relationships found in smaller, family owned businesses, but had the financial backing of it's new owner Sears. They employed an amazing staff that was full of personality and happy to be working for such a great company.

    Cons

    Sears has run this profitable business into the ground. Management has zero decision making capability, employees feel like numbers rather than humans, the database system is counter-intuitive, and sales has little to no support in getting customers walking through the door. And pretty much everyone who works there hates their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Until Sears decides to cut their losses and sell back to a private owner, they will never recover and the company will continue to fail.

    Pros

    Good managers low-level managers who were friendly. Lots of great deals on clearance appliances.

    Cons

    Upper management didn't take their website seriously and lost a lot of money by not hiring the right people to run it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in a bigger technology department and streamline your outdated processes.
