    I have been working at Sears (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay opportunities and nice work environment.

    Cons

    Manager's pick and choose when they would like to deal with customers when manager assistance is needed. The company revolves around numbers instead of people but that's just what comes with a corporate company I guess...

    Advice to Management

    Do your job when you're at work.

    I worked at Sears full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Regular paycheck. Schedule Flexibility. Decent hours. (Stores don't open super early.)

    Cons

    Always running. Always dealing with customer complaints that wouldn't exist if the company ran properly.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing unproven strategies. Stop hounding every employee about credit apps. Stop hounding customers to apply for credit. It's chasing them away. FOCUS ON PROPER CUSTOMER SERVICE.
