Other Employee Reviews for Sears

  1. "Sears was a company that was genuinely dedicated to making its customers happy, but with all the wrong priorities."

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Had some of the most respectful managers.
    Customers had a passion for the company.
    Always something new to work on.
    Associates were happy-ish.

    Cons

    An insane amount of metrics (I can think of 11 off the top of my head) that you must meet.
    Management constantly hounds you for not achieving the metrics.
    Higher-ups in the corporation make terrible marketing choices and foolish updates to "modern-ize" the store.
    Lacking proper organization.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the individual rather than on their metrics. Sometimes there is a wildly simple fix as to why they aren't getting SYWR, Credit, P.A.s, etc.


  2. "Fun"

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

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, great employees decent commission rates. Management actually seem to care about the employees and their personal lives.

    Cons

    In order to solve a simple issue you need to contact ten different people in 6 different departments. Painfully slow at times.
