Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

The onboarding process is really good. But you expect a company with that much turnover to be good at that.

Cons

The leadership has no true vision and works with threats. Middle management compensates with micromanagement. While I was there, I saw many employees being removed by security which does nothing for a good work environment.

Advice to Management

Communicate your strategy for the stores and online. Don't scare employees into going along. Be open to feedback.
