Approves of CEO

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

Pros

The management tends to have a very down to earth mentality and tries to be understanding. There is much room for promotion should you accel at your job as a sales associate from being promoted to lead and then on to managorial positions.

Cons

The pay is primarily based on commission and your ability to sell protection agreements. This makes the job exceedingly difficult to accel at in down economy times or if you are in a poorer region. In this regard your pay reflects your region. My job here is meant to be part-time, however the management has short staffed our department and as a full time student I am required to work 35-40 hours a week which is overwhelming.

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

    Pros

    Good environment. Team work (within your own team, as some other - i. e. cashiers- wouldn't cooperate).

    Cons

    Worked for over a year with a good yearly review and had no raise, not even a single cent.

    Advice to Management

    Show more interest for your MCAs, they do most of the hard work and are a key point for customer service, yet they are seldom rewarded.
