    I worked at Sears full-time

    Pros

    People in this organization are loyal and dedicated. As a whole, great management teams that sincerely care about associates.

    Cons

    Hours are extremely tight with the changing retail environment, years of downsizing make it hard to recruit great talent.

    Advice to Management

    Move quickly to implement dedicated changes to digital commerce to stay relevant. More focus on customer experience and lifestyle, stores are dated...so people experience can make the difference?

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    Got an email from a Sears recruiter with links for available positions and to email back after I've submitted the aplication
    Applied online including an assesment which took quite some time and had notified the recruiter about my application. He obviously did not realise that I have a job and that I am not available during the times he would call leaving me a message to call back. When I would call back, I would always get his voicemail. I asked him severeal times to send me an email with questions he might have for me but he kept on returning my calls at the wrong times instead of shedule a time for a phone interview. Very unprofessional attitude.
