"Working at Sears is not the most rewarding job. You've to let a certain number of credits and SYW score, or you're called out. You're victimized for something you're not in control over. Judging someone based on metrics isn't reliable."
"While I was at Sears, everyone was a little too laid back. 3 months in because of my credit performance I was given the option to quit or be fired. Sears does not treasure employees and only cares about credit as it is a dying company."
"Not a bad place to work at the local level but, at the district level, everything breaks down. District manager wants to flood the floor with sales associates and doesn't care about the employees. She actually expects us to bring business into the store on our own time. We are not 1099 contractors."
"I worked as a cashier at Sears for two years and did not have a pleasant working experience there. My specific location was always busy with NEVER ENOUGH HELP. There were always long lines because there was only ONE cashier per station (M-F) and for each customer you had to go through the never-ending process of getting their email, signing them up for rewards, offering credit cards, etc. A simple transaction took ten minutes. Being understaffed was ALWAYS an issue. Management basically forced you to shove credit cards down every customer's throat. Can't tell you how many times I felt guilty making people sign up for credit cards. Picking up work after others was common because people were simply lazy. I've worked there for less than 2 years and there have been THREE different store managers within that period, and even more departmental management changes. The turnover rate was extremely high. The scheduling sucked. I closed 95% of my time working there, people always called off so I was often stuck doing doubles, and working weekends was mandatory. The pay was, of course, horrible. Remember, Sears is trying to cut as many costs as possible, and employee pay is on the top of the list. After working for 2 years and having exceptional numbers I HAVE NOT GOTTEN A RAISE. Minimum wage. The only good thing about the credit cards is you got either a $1, $2 or $4 bonus each for opening them, depending on the type and time of year. Customers were pretty rude and unpleasant to work with too. The store itself was disgusting. The bathrooms were unbearable; I couldn't even use them. Clothes were all over the place. A lot of items that were returned which were damaged ended up back on the floor due to employee carelessness. They just did not care about their employees, only how many credit cards ere opened. But, what can I say, it's retail. My advice to you is, do not work for a company that is going out of business. They won't care about employees."
"I've been a sales associate for Sears for 3 years. I do pretty well."
"I have worked at Sears Holdings for 2 years and it was very wonderful experience. I get to learn many new things and my skills were also tested beautifully. I like my work and the challenges that go along with it, as every time you have to think for new approach for solving the problem."
"I've worked at Sears for over 5 years. I used to enjoy it, but with every passing year it gets worse. Corporate seems to take every opportunity to cut pay for commissioned associates. I would not recommend working for this company"
"I've worked at Sears for about 6 months now."
"Not many good complements about Sears' performance, management, work ethics, and practice."
"Retail part-time employment... What can be expected?"
"Yes, Sears is a fairly good company with good environment."
"I've done internship there for around 3 months. It was a learning experience in NoSQL DB and Spring framework importantly. I have contributed in a very positive way and helped the team to deliver the code before time. They have appreciated my work there."
"Good products, great company."
"Too many silos and too many layers. Many small ideas that are approved but lack extensibility and fail at the enterprise level. Company is very top heavy and while it has a vision, doesn't do well at communicating or executing the road to get there."
"As with any large company it has ups and downs, SHC is a great place if you want to expand you portfolio, and once one of the greatest retailers in the world."
