Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Coworkers are polite and pleasure to work with. Job responsibilities are clearly defined for all employees. Contact with HR is good.

Cons

Manager is out of communication loop. Too many are allowed to not do anything leaving others to pick-up slack. Supervisor is disorganized. Pay is lousy. No recognition for performance. No possibility for advancement.

Advice to Management

Change the internal workings of the company from the leadership down. Instill some type of pride in the company for the employees because none exists.

    Pros

    You will have a good idea what you can earn.

    Cons

    Culture is to be unfriendly to staff, and even if you perform at a high level as in leading the country in sales, or being #1 in your region, no one knows ore cares. No thank you or great job from management on any level, that is, store , district or region. Unbelievable! That's why good staff always looking to leave..

    Advice to Management

    How about recognizing very good and excellent production. You will be amazed what a little "great job" will do for your staff.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Pays well if you are willing to take on tough assignments and move around from store to store. The quality of the assistant managers is very poor and the hourly leads have no desire to get promoted. They don't view the pay as worth the personal life sacrifices.

    Cons

    Your pay will rise and competitors will not want to match it. As Sears begins to close stores, your market value will drop and the loss in pay will be hard to overcome. You will have non personal life and every email is a job threat. Not a good environment.

    Advice to Management

    Regional leadership needs to be changed. You spend endless hours chasing metrics that hold non financial value. How you ring up an appliance order, on an iPad or a register, doesn't matter. Be happy that you have a customer to ring up at all. The tools are great, but you shouldn't shove them down your people's throats.
