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 worked at Sears part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers. Reasonable about requested time off. Good company discounts and sales.

    Cons

    The company does not care about its employees. The "new corporate culture" of "working above the line" basically boils down to "we don't want to hear anything from you; any comments or suggestions will be taken as complaints and are not allowed".
    The pay is poor and they don't give raises. This particular location has a manager who is a bully and uses her leads and ASMs as rats who are forced to tattle on the associates for every tiny thing, or face the consequences.
    I don't have enough space to write how fed up I got with this job and the heartless company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates like people, not 'metrics machines' and realize that even though you know your job, other people know theirs too. Your way does not necessarily equal the only way.
    And learn some manners. If you don't want people to speak 'rudely' to you, show a little respect. You are not God.
