I worked at Sears as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

There are lots of opportunities to advance and grow at Sears Holdings. I felt like the projects I was working on had a real impact. I was able to do both data analysis and implementation. Good work environment and feel that I connected well with.

Cons

Often times processes are not in place to perform tasks, and so you must discover/create the way. Similar to any large organization, the bureaucracy can be bothersome and slow to work through. Though the company seems to be turning things around, I still had concerns about the future of the company and its long-term strategies.

    I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work environment good, lots of perks at the corporate off.

    Cons

    Was great employee discount until the merger with K-Mart.
    Managers were very critical, judged you personally and not professionally.
    MicroManaged

    Advice to Management

    HR need to listen to the employees when they are told a manager or supervisor is not a good one, and fire them instead of Transfiring (moving them to another area).
