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

Pros

Co-workers were great. They made the day go by faster. It's retail, so it's always a hit or miss with customers. Even if you weren't working commission you could earn a little more by selling some POS merch

Cons

Biased management --- If they don't like you, they'll cut your hours.
Credit Applications --- As part of your job, you have to get people to sign up for sears credit cards. You have to ask everyone to sign up for it, it doesn't matter if they already have $5000 balance on another sears card or they can't speak english.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget when you were on the front line. And if I call you, there's obviously a problem that requires your help or "expertise".

    I have been working at Sears full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very smart people and you're usually rewarded for your hard work. Asociates come to work ready to dig in and work hard.

    Cons

    Lot of seemingly unnecessary firedrills. Kind of poor communication. Almost seems as if culture still has not fully absorbed the merger of companies.
