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

    Pros

    great people at store level - they all try very hard to meet the standards. The store can be nearly a one stop shop for the customer coming just short in groceries.

    Cons

    the pressure put on all levels in the store to hit a expected number regardless of customer feedback is incredibile. example: customer buys apparel and says no to opening a credit card puts the associate who rings the sale as a failure. same customer does not want to join the rewards program and the same associates is now failing 2x's.

    Advice to Management

    if the efforts towards the numbers was to create a better bottom line and those numbers have reportedly gone up every year - the question bags to be answered then. why is the bottom line not getting better. the answer is we have fewer customers returning because they are sick of the pressures to buy more at the register. wake up and see what is happening, yes reward members are repeating purchases more and more, but the customers are coming in less and less. 80% or better in loyalty customers means you are not getting new customers in and so the base is eroding away as fast as the companys bottom line.
