Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Relaxed working atmosphere
Opportunity to excel based on individual merit

Cons

Older associates are only concerned about making their own sales and stealing new employee's sales- this leads to a very fragmented culture where everyone is fighting for their own commissions, a low level of teamwork.
Not many opportunities for advancement, pretty much stuck in the same position

Advice to Management

Bring in better talent, have a more focused culture and brand image.
