Loss Prevention and Sales (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – August 16, 2017
It was not a hard job but they pushed a lot of the sales tropes on their employees. They want you to sell overpriced protection plans that didn't do anything. When they would confront you on low numbers and you'd ask a better way to sell it they wouldn't have any answers either. In my area the people I worked for and with were always very nice and understanding. I did actually have a lot of fun at the job.
Loss Prevention Manager (Former Employee) – Jackson, MI – August 16, 2017
The compensation was horrible. Even after working for them for 4 years, as a manager, I was only making $11.50/hour. I had a bachelors degree and still was making pennies! The company doesn't care about the employees.
Sears sales consultants must be ready for any holidays or special events, similar to any other retail business. Much of the years business happens during these times. All other sales skills are assumed.
Truck Unloader/Stocker (Former Employee) – Saint Clair, MI – August 15, 2017
It was an exciting and fun job that I enjoyed very much. The boss was a blessing to work for and made the job fun and not boring at all. It didn't pay very much though but it was not like i was looking for a future through their corporation. It was just giving me a stable income through the portion of college i went to.

its a job. very repetitive. you must get people to open up credit cards. they go real hard with that. they also want you to get people to give them a 10 on reviews that they are allowed to do which is on their receipt.
Electronic's Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Orland Park, IL – August 15, 2017
Although Management was always rushing everyone, the staff manages to stay calm and push the necessary orders in and out while still enjoying work. Selling electronic equipment was a great learning experience.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – August 15, 2017
I wish this place never closed. We worked as a team, management treated you with respect and had no problems with giving a helping hand. Working at Sears you will develop the attitude if one fail we all fail and that pushes you to always be a team player.
Backroom Associate (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 15, 2017
Management recognizes you for going above the call of duty, fast paced without being hectic. The only start emplloyees out at minimum wage which is not ideal but overall has been a great work experience.
