    I have been working at Sears part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people behind the scenes are truly inspiring and the friendships you make here tend to become the only reason to stay.

    Cons

    Economic stress, lack of customer service, pressuring the sell credit cards more than merchandise. Lay offs are also common

    Advice to Management

    Downsize and focus on customer service before you lose everything and try to fix this company in a bottom up fashion rather than a top down fashion.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    There was an on site interview at a job fair which lead to a follow up email from the recruiter. This was followed up by an in person interview with two current higher level employees. An offer was made shortly after.
