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

Pros

Great coworkers
Variety of products
Flexible hours
Decent break and lunch durations

Cons

Hours are based on the sole decision of customers on whether or not they would like to apply for a sears credit card with you.
Managers sometimes never answer the phones for customer service.
Hard to contact cashier leader while not at work for schedule adjustment.
Asking for days off or for hour adjustments will make them drop your hours.

Advice to Management

Hours should be spread somewhat equally throughout the employees instead of giving them hours based on whether or not customers want a sears card or not.

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

    Pros

    Great employee discount. Strong brands as long as they do not dilute. Internal social network called Pebble is very powerful and useful tool to cross internal bureaucratic stigma (witch abounds in this company). Assistant and store managers have home access to many internal systems(can also be a con)

    Cons

    They want their eggs cooked "sunny side down but don't turn them over". (3 stooges ism). Crony Good ol boy still exists in this company. Use negative motivators to beat results out of location managers. Business unit structure forces the stores to serve the central organization. Unrealistic expectations lead to frustrating the front line and extinguishing morale and talent. The threat of closing your store if it is successful or not makes talent run from the company. Some of the best motivational leaders I have ever worked for were sent home with weak reasoning.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of leadership changes and soul searching with no results. The business model used is doomed even before it started.
