    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits
    Relationships with coworkers
    Good learning experience with credit cards

    Cons

    Poor management
    Very slow
    Too pushy on credit and SYW
    Understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing credit so much. It's not the employees fault that customers don't want to sign up for a credit card with a 27% interest rate. Stop punishing employees not having over 80% SYW on all registers and all the people they've rung up that day. Again, not the employees fault people aren't interested in signing up.

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

    Pros

    Offer developmental opportunities to advance in the company, friendly environment, great life/work balance. Very professional company overall.

    Cons

    Pay is low for most hourly associates. Managers work 6 days a week and long hours during the holiday (4th quarter) season. Company is very driven by numbers and can be stressfull.

    Advice to Management

    The company offers excellent opportunities for personal growth in certain employment areas. Growth in the company is there but they do not pay well for people who move up from within. The culture that has been embedded in the company makes it one of the most genuine places to work and most people I believe are very satisfied.
