I have been working at Sears part-time (More than a year)

Pros

None actually, other than getting a paycheck which won't be much by the way. They pay minimum wage and that's it! No raises and doesn't matter how much experience you have!!!

Cons

Boy where do I start? Guess I will start with management, never in my life have I encountered a more unprofessional management team than Sears. They do not care about customers and can care less about their employees. You will be on their bad side if you don't meet their goals (they get a nice paycheck for it) while you get nothing and are yelled at all the time. I was even yelled at when I gave my notice for getting another job, seriously a joke. Avoid this place like the plague unless you're seriously desperate. I have never ever been so disrespected in my life until I started working there. You're nothing more but a slave to them. They say they are flexible but will get mad at you for not being available all the time since people quit all the time because the company is no good.

Advice to Management

Stop being so unprofessional! That is why you fail.

    I worked at Sears full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    was a good place to work at one time, valued work life balance and decent, not great, benefits

    Cons

    Management will not listen to staff.
    work life balance no longer exists
    high turnover in stores
    lack of direction

    Advice to Management

    get a merchant to run the place
    treat staff with respect, yelling does not motivate, it infuriates
    compensate to market
