    I worked at Sears full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Great discount. Pay rate is average

    Cons

    Not very friendly and compassionate about life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Give more people the ability to advance. When a person is great at thier job they tend to be overlook to be promoted up be cause no one can do thier job the best as the other person.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sears (Houston, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    very simple process, initial email contact, followed by set time and date. Phone interview lasted 30 minutes very in depth questions. I feel that I answered all questions successfully.
