    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Privileged to work for an American icon. Innovative integrated retail tools and technology a plus. Huge amount of training resources available. Good culture program

    Cons

    Staffing reductions continue and task load on managers and associates has become monumental. Sales associates mostly just sell and haven't adopted technology available to grow sales. No time to access the great training resources. Few associates and store level managers have adopted the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Behavioral management is encouraged at corp level but by the time is has trickled down to stores, it becomes all about the metric. These is no time to effectively coach associate behaviors
