Pros

Sears is a large, solid company that offers its associates hardlines and softline merchandise with 20% discount on softlines and 10% on hardlines.

Cons

the pay rate does not seem as competitive as some other companies i've seen on your site for years of experience

Advice to Management

online training is good start- but managers don't have enough time to train new associates that come on board- too task laden themselves

    Pros

    They work around personal schedules. Fellow employees and directs leads make it a fun place to work. Great group of people (those below upper management, anyway)

    Cons

    Not enough customer service focus. Senior management is pushing for credit apps and club memberships so much that it's taking away from the customer service aspect. No room for advancement. Expectations are too high versus support given. Very high turnover (at our location anyway)

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to pad your pockets. Remember the customer and stop stepping on the little people. Back in the day Sears was somewhere you could be proud to work, now most employees are embarrassed to tell people they work there. Ridiculous.
