"Sears is a very exciting place to work in, and you get to learn a lot from the retail business side."

Lead Cashier

"Not good at all."

What do you like about working at Sears?

"My store manager cares about the employees and recognizes a good job. Not all store managers do though."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't talk badly about previous employers. It makes you look bad."

What don't you like about working at Sears?

"The pay is terrible at Sears. They promote unqualified people before promoting from within. Turnover is crazy, so every week it seems like you're training new people, which makes it hard to do your job when you're constantly training someone."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Pay associates more. When associates are happy they are better workers. Devote the time and training to associates who want to move up, and stop hiring people from outside the company over someone who works for you, then turning around and expecting them to train the new person."
