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

    Pros

    A very fair amount of walking and lifting is keeping me fit

    Cons

    I've been working here for three months and have yet to be trained. On my first day I was put on the floor and told to shadow an eighteen-year-old for a week- THE FINAL WEEK OF HIS EMPLOYMENT.
    Coworkers make personal and social connections; i.e. everybody flirts with everybody, all day long. Rejection breeds scorn and I may no longer ask a person I've rejected for help.
    I am the only straight male to work in clothing sales-- out of twenty people. Gay coworkers sexually harass me.
    Schedule changes up to day-of.
    No opportunity for raises, paid minimum wage.
    Requesting time off begets managerial resentment.
    Managers are constantly in a bad mood.
    Once scheduled to work until one AM, then come in at five AM the following morning to work a seven-hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Put a manager on the sales floor; give a solid schedule; improve pay
