Pros

I love being able to help customers and always be on the floor, not cooped up at a desk. I get to learn to do everything in the store so I can help wherever is needed. Right now i am in charge of the electronics department and it is much better having a specific department to which you are accountable and can focus all your time. Most of the time I love my job.

Cons

The manager doesn't really give me too much the time of day, and I have been to a store where the ASM's just ignore me and don't find it worth their time to train me. (the store I am currently at though, all the ASM's are excellent and very helpful). I have to work every single saturday and every other sunday, which leaves me little time to be with my family.

Advice to Management

Do not micro manage. Train and then give us responsibility so that we can prove what we have learned and that we are great managers.

    You dinged all the time on commission, but Sears still makes their money
    When changes are passed down it usually means you earn less
    hours are crazy - there is no normal day. 10 am - to midnight some days

    Advice to Management

    let experienced reps train new reps without it affecting pay
