Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Sears full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great co-workers, mostly great associates.

Cons

Ridiculous hours, constantly changing priorities, too little focus on sales (non exisitent focus, really) and too much focus on loyalty program and pushing credit.

Advice to Management

Focus more on sales. They keep the doors open.

    I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Process and structure
    Large company
    Buying power / large market share
    Good vision, strategy, and leadership
    Strong equity in brands
    Valuable member base
    child-care on campus
    decent gym on-site
    good cafeteria

    Cons

    lack of focus on personal career development
    High turnover
    too much bureaucracy
    detachment from HR
    awful IT support system
    awful health care benefits
    no 401k match

    Advice to Management

    Invest in making people want to stay and grow with the company. Incorporate a sense of pride. Need to do more than just quarterly town hall meetings. Businesses and people are too departmentalized or silo'd. Foster greater collaboration and share of best practices.

    I worked at Sears part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not too difficult and decent pay. The hours are flexible and they will work around your schedule. Some managers were friendly.

    Cons

    You really need to make customers sign up for sears credit cards and sears rewards programs or else your relationship with managers will not be good. Be ready to get yelled at by customers when you consistently ask for their phone number and personal info required by sears.
