    I worked at Sears full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many varied areas to work, fashion, electronics, tools, yard tractors, appliances, and support jobs, such as stock, security, accounting/office. Plus if you want to, and have the drive, you can move up in the company as different levels of management.

    Cons

    Don't have any illusions, your work is all number based. They have goals. Either you meet them or you are eventually gone. They will make the effort to give you extra training to help you, but if your numbers are not "there," neither are you. You must be able to tell the difference between what is nice and what is necessary. If you cannot, you will find yourself working on things that don't mean anything to the company. Numbers are KING!

    Advice to Management

    Numbers are important, but are not the only thing. Upper management needs to inquire from the management who have a personal "eyes on assessment" to determine the true value of an associate. There are attributes that don't show on a spread sheet, but still count as part of a positive customer experience.


  2. "Nice culture, bad business."

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

    Pros

    All can wear blue jeans to work every day. There is a gym and a cafeteria on-campus.

    Cons

    Too many metrics. Distanced from store operations. Repetitive tasks without looking back at past successes and failures.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize further so that teams are clearly held accountable for results.
