No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

To be honest, if your a good salesman and in the right department on the right day you will make a good bit of money. And the people that worked there are fun.

Cons

- management pushes for credit applications so hard that you get harassed about it - it is not worth the customers to get the credit card for something like 15 dollars off of a 250 dollar purchase.
- management does and does not take into account your personal schedule. I.E - They knew i was graduating college scheduled me on my graduation day anyway.
- They do not give out hours if you need them
- Low base pay.

Advice to Management

Learn some people skills and give the people that actually stand out and are good with customers the managerial positions so that they can help with any of the problems

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

    Pros

    Great pay when you make enough sales, friendly coworkers and managers, decent training systems

    Cons

    Not enough customers and not competitively priced enough for sales to be better or even with the competition. Lots of problems with technology or lack thereof, miscommunication between services and sales, and high expectations for sales people with no way to achieve the goals.

    Advice to Management

    Push for better equipment and empower sales associates with the ability to bring in customers.


  2. "Improving, but with a long way left to go, the in store work environments with the role out of a new "culture" structure"

    Provides opportunities for women and minorities to move up in all aspects of the retail environment.

    Not a lot of movement available in small stores with out relocating, at the persons own expense.

    Advice to Management

    Do not ever expect your associates to do things that you are not willing to do yourself.
