    I see a lot of people complaining but here's what I see so far in the few days I've been with the company. I haven't met and associate that complains about their job. If you do that like your job you don't preform and you're gone. If you're not helping the company make money then you're not going to make it. If they make money you make money.

    This is not the job I was told it was to be when hired. If you are relying on a certain amount of income and same amount of hours each pay period, this may not be the job for you. Possibly as a second job, it may do, but please rethink your choices and options. Once you are hired, your schedule may not be what you were originally told as it fluctuates, so you really can't make any plans ahead of time and you definitely can't work out a budget with the low pay. Also, make certain that you figure out who to listen to. You may be told how to do things by co-workers who have been there for a few years and actually do the job on the sales floor and then by others who are in the main office which can be different ways. If you follow the ways that work the best for the workers on the floor, the office will look at you as if you've done something wrong and will not even take the time to ask or listen as to why you've done the task the way you have. When other employees that have been there longer ask why the department lead is having you do that or raise their eyebrows and tell you "who knows what they're doing", you know something isn't right, as I have years of experience in the customer service field, so at least their comments have confirmed my feelings. I enjoy the customers and the co-workers that I have the most contact with, but as to management, something is lacking and the need to show their power over employees for their own personal reasons and those that you may not even know, really make your day not what you thought or wished it could be as the job itself is great in the beginning and then goes downhill rapidly to the "why did I take this job." I now even ask myself why did I recommend this Store to a few of my friends who came in and purchased rather large expensive items, purchases that the Store doesn't even know that I helped them make their goals for certain days. I tried, I helped, but now it's time to look for another job elsewhere.

    Ok. Just got a job offer for mattress sales. 25-35 hours per week. What kind of pay(wage/commission/etc) can I expect? I've never done furniture sales but I'm a good salesperson and decent closer. Also any tips to help me along?

    I have an interview at sears in a few days. I am concerned about my background. In Feb I was arrested for some Internet related stuff. Made a plea agreement where basically I have to behave for 3 years. Currently sentencing is deferred 3 years so there are no convictions. Will the arrest alone make me not hireable?

    Hello, I was hoping someone with some inside could help me with what to expect as a sales lead. I got offered a job as a fitness specialty lead making 30k base a year plus commission. I was told commission is 1.5% of total department sales a month, but have no idea what to expect or what a typical monthly gross sales could be. I know there are a lot of variables, but a range would be fantastic if anyone has a guess to this. Thanks!

    I'm going to be blunt with this do not work for sears. This company is going down the drain. Management sucks the store manager and leads are all friends they got rid of h r and now if you have a problem you have to go to YEP store manager.they are always sitting down never answer calls so you are stuck with the angry customer overturn rate is ridiculous because no one will work so hard for this stupid pay 7.25 unless you do nothing then seems that's the ones who get paid more.cashiers don't do nothing the hardware people are lazy no one is in their department to work so customers are always complaining cause they can't find anyone to check out with. The few that do work get treat like crap. The MPU lead is on drugs and puts all his work on the hard workers in receiving so he can sit all day talking nasty to female employees. A single employee will have to sale tools tvs clothes run register help customer because no one cares to help them . Again please find another job do not go here unless you need to learn patience . The Appliance lead is stupid and loves taking bout people but smile in your face and the store manager had to have sucked d to get that position!! Sell credit cards to people but don't tell you they'll put a 50$ charge on your bill become a member of syw so you can get flooded with emails ! Don't go there
