Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Relatively easy and you can get away with doing the bare minimum I suppose.

Cons

Company does not do raises for hourly store employees (At least in Memphis). Store managers ALWAYS breathing down your neck about selling more credit cards and store to home.

Advice to Management

Offer incentives to employees to do better. Currently, the only incentive is to do good enough to not get fired.

    I have been working at Sears full-time

    Pros

    Great employee discounts. Get along with some of the other team members.

    Cons

    Came into this position when interviewing for a different one. Was not shown any of the ins and outs of this particular location. And it was just expected that you knew every little thing about your job (even though it was not part of your job previously).

    Advice to Management

    Don't set people up to fail. Give them the help they need to succeed.

    Pros

    work-life balance, co-workers are friendly, nice office environment

    Cons

    salary, vacation days, raises, total compensation

    Advice to Management

    hard to learn environment as they have way to many systems, with kmart and sears split, its a tough environment to pick up because you dont know who the owners of whatever applicaiton you are working on. its crazy, nothing written down. no 401k match, total compensation lagging behind other companies
