      I worked at Sears part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Treated fairly most of the time. If I tried harder all of the time I'm sure I would have done better.

      Cons

      Always unpacking the truck while everyone else "acted" like they were putting things away. Hard to make sales when you were doing the unpacking. After a while I gave up.

      Advice to Management

      Already going out of business, what can you tell Management now?

      I worked at Sears part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Co-workers were easy to get along with.

      Cons

      Management was not willing to make changes to improve customer experiences. Management wants to take shortcuts to finish a task that actually requires the full process.
