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

Pros

the benefits they offer are pretty decent. Their are also many locations to choose from. Finding one to work at should not be a problem.

Cons

as a cashier, there were not enough hours. Management also was an issue...instead of promoting who was qualified, they like to promote by seniority. But this does not always result in the best person for the job.

Advice to Management

hire qualified managers.

    I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people and flexible schedules hours are good when times are good! advancement does surface eventually. Company wanting to treat associates right and recovering well after plummets and grim outlooks.

    Cons

    No direction from upper management, meaningful changes stated same old song and dance. no bonuses, no matched 401k, poor benefits hours vary

    Advice to Management

    Actually lay out a plan that trickles down. Pay more for support associates and experience instead of commission. Offer bonuses to associates making minimum or incentive
