    "As an Electronic Sales Rep at Sears, it was a decent experience-- just don't expect a huge paycheck."

    Pros

    Great way to get experience in commissioned sales! The experience helped me get a much better job-- at a another company.

    Cons

    Low pay (both commission and base pay); New employees will find even less commission options; Low opportunity for advancement, Low opportunity for full-time employment (It's almost luck); sales environment in neighboring departments creates a hostile sales environment.

    Advice to Management

    It obvious that the company is showing low signs of life, but it needs a new coat of paint. Even if extra stores needs to be closed, the stores are in desperate needs of an update. Employees also need to have a better access to commission and advancement opportunities.

    "Double standards - non-existent management, and incredibly high turnover from the district level on down"

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    honestly, none, at least at the location near me

    Cons

    non-communication, non-management, (literally would hide from customer issues in office), double standards, selective enforcement, not a business, the atmosphere was more like a kindergarten

    Advice to Management

    Retire, change jobs, or take some "Basic 101" Communication classes, as well, as sales, customer service 101. As far as"management", unfortunately, it's known, not thought, to be a "lost" cause.
