    I have been working at Sears part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission is good ONLY during peak seasons-spring time and Christmas time. Really liked my last manager there, very helpful. Good with working around my school schedule. Good if you just want this job as a secondary income-would not suggest working here if it is primary income OR if you have little to no bills to pay.

    Cons

    Micromanaging store manager, very high pressure-have to be at a certain percent every day you work for doing transactions on ipads/ipods, credit apps, customer surveys, protection agreements, sales, etc. Management team gives little to no recognition for successful employees, very high retention rate, incompetent managers, extremely hard to move from part time status to full time status. Very little hourly rate (made $6.00/hour)-even with commission it isn't much. If a customer returns a product purchased from you, you lose that commission.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities for growth-career. Raises would be a good way to keep more employees with the company, needs a more positive environment.

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

    Pros

    I did not find no pros.

    Cons

    When I began as an assistant store manager I did not have any type of training, I had to research and train myself to learn the store regulations and policies.
    No work life balance
    The General Store Manager overworked her management staff, she would not hire assistant store manager's because she wanted to save money. Even though the store in particular is under staff.
    The General Manager would not listen about employees stealing neither. Not a good company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Do not get involve in your employee's personal life.
