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

Pros

The program was well run, especially if you were a BAP. It gave you access to upper level management, training in different systems, and the ability to work on a project that could make an actual difference in your division.

Cons

There was a disconnect between the Executive Leadership's vision and the day to day operations which could be frustrating. Turnover was high leaving some interns high and dry when trying to get a hold of past data.

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

    Pros

    Pay could be worse, base rate plus commission. People working there were great and most customers were friendly.

    Cons

    Too many metrics. As a salesman I was graded on my sales per hour, my add on sales, the two different types of warranties, my credit card applications, my rewards program sign ups, my installation rate, my customer surveys and my online order totals. Weirdly, my sales per hour was never talked about much.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on metrics and more on customer service. The only advantage we have over Walmart and Target is customer service, not prices. Focus on employing the best at customer service and sales per hour (if sales) and the company may have more business.
