Pros

Sears still is a name brand and does have influence in the marketplace. It helps open doors and gets your foot in. There is a lot of information available if you can find it.

Cons

Sears definitely has a silo mentality. Trying to get things done or even shared between departments is a major undertaking. The people have a lot of experience and knowledge but trying to find the right person who can help is a challenge.

    Pros

    Potential is there to make decent money, management is understanding and willing to help, have the sears name backing you up.

    drive hundreds of miles a day in your own vehicle with minimal reimbursment. have to take advantage of people to make a sale because the prices are extremely high.

    Advice to Management

    pay state minimum milage or provide a company vehicle, run more sales on the products to bring them to an affordable price range for most families that call a company like sears.
