I worked at Sears part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Co-workers were great. They made the day go by faster. It's retail, so it's always a hit or miss with customers. Even if you weren't working commission you could earn a little more by selling some POS merch

Cons

Biased management --- If they don't like you, they'll cut your hours.
Credit Applications --- As part of your job, you have to get people to sign up for sears credit cards. You have to ask everyone to sign up for it, it doesn't matter if they already have $5000 balance on another sears card or they can't speak english.

Advice to Management

Don't forget when you were on the front line. And if I call you, there's obviously a problem that requires your help or "expertise".

    I worked at Sears full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meet new people all the time.

    Cons

    No balance of life. The job does not compensate for the value of work. The job does not realize you have things outside of Sears to be focused on as well.

    Advice to Management

    Stop loading on so much without compensating. Spread the work and lengthen the deadlines.
