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

    Pros

    Commission sales can be lucrative if you are good at it. Easy job, not a lot of responsibilities.

    Cons

    Management is all about number, numbers, numbers. Wanted employees to bug customers endlessly to sign up for credit cards and rewards programs.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the shoes of the customers. Nobody wants to be bugged to open credit card accounts and join pointless reward programs.

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

    Pros

    Bonuses for every credit application, Time-off when requested
    The job is good if you're a teenager looking for some extra money. Even if you're in college it's a pretty decent job as long as you have no real bills to pay like car notes, rent, etc.

    Cons

    Schedule based off credit application performance, No raises for the past 6 pears, Favortism
    Your schedule is based off of how many credit applications you pull in. Your customer service skills basically don't matter at all. Some workers are rude to the customers, but as long as their credit app numbers are high, no one cares. They do not do raises...you will be stuck at $8.25 per hour and you only see the bonus for the credit apps on the first check of each month. The management was very unfair. They are very child-like in a way. It was like being in high school all over again. I got along with most of the managers so my schedule was nice, but other employees were treated like crap, which I didn't like too much. There's not much room for moving up. Most people worked there for years before being able to become apart of management.
