Sales Lead
in Tampa, FL

"The spinoff company into independent strip shopping center locations is a good concept, but requires more solutions for ancillary services like delivery, installations, and logistics. At the sales level, there is little visibility to management and divisions to implement resolutions to these issues. As a former international project manager, it frustrates me that I am not afforded any opportunity to offer suggestions to overcome these operational issues."

"I have been employed as Sears for a little over a year. This is a base pay plus commissions with a minimum of minimum wage if you don't achieve enough in commissions. There is a bonus plan monthly which is 1% of total sales for month if you achieve 125% of your sales, PA and Attachment objectives. Regular commission is roughly 1.5% of sales (no commission is paid for some department sales, although those sales count for your days sales objectives. Overall the company is not a bad place to work."
