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

Pros

Great coworkers, managers want you to succeed, one of the tvs in the department had Dish on it to kill the time. Good monetary incentive for hard work. Decent employee discount. Flexible scheduling, but there is no time off allowed in November/December.

Cons

Although I did not mind how much emphasis was put on numbers, some key numbers were never talked about. Specifically, you could make a sale that generated a $1000 loss, but as long as you sold a protection agreement (warranty) with accessories it was great sale. Favoritism interfered with ethics. Managers could feel the pressure from corporate, and would occasionally be very unpleasant to work with.

Advice to Management

Since the company has already dug itself into a big hole with its lack of cash flow and a gluttony of near worthless real estate, keep trimming the fat and focus on what actually brings in a profit.
