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

Pros

Sears allowed a flexible schedule that allowed me to work and go to college. The Sears that I worked for also provided a good workplace environment.

Cons

I unfortunately was not able to advance further than I already had due to the lack of positions that were available.

    I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generally have a team spirit. Good location.

    Cons

    poor learning/growth potential, poor salary. I've been with the company 10+ years. Initially I had a lot of opportunity to move up in the company but since I joined another department 5 years ago after doing some upgrading - I've been left in the wind. The director for my area has lost a lot of great people because they maintain status quo for learning and salary - people are not supported to learn or upgrade, plus the director doesn't push to increase salary where warranted for a number of people.

    Advice to Management

    foster growth of internal talent or potential talent versus always looking outside the company.
