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...

    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.

    I worked at Sears full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There isn't any positives to working at Sears. run DON'T walk away from working at this company!

    Cons

    Poorly managed by upper management. Poor Pay at store level. Upper management treats lower level associates like garbage. Morale throughout the store is very low due to poor treatment and pay. Stores need to be remodeled and updated. Systems are terribly slow and outdated. If you don't kiss the rear end of a superior, do not expect to move through the organization or get a raise, even if you work hard. Customers treat the store and associates like dirt, always bringing up the "old ways" of Sears...

    Advice to Management

    Stop the threatening management style and give raises and promotions! Update the stores and systems.
