Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Work Life Balance
Many different organizations within one company that you can expand your career into
Only retailer with such a broad arrangement of products

Cons

Lower pay compared to similar positions in the market
Must be open to relocate to move up
Too government like - very slow to react to store needs and market needs

Advice to Management

Focus more on top line revenue and that will solve a lot of issues...Others are important but some of the priorities are distractions from being a great retailer...

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

    Pros

    Ok it your just looking for a part time cashier job and not looking to make a career.

    Cons

    No respect for their employees. No longer the place where America shops. Not competitive in today's market.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the big picture and change accordingly. Changes need to be made at corporate level. Get in line with today's market climate and think outside the box to become a better retailer.
